2009 Alternative Media Expo 

The Neighborhood Story Project holds court as the first local featured guest at the 2009 Alternative Media Expo. The UNO-sponsored, 7th Ward project, which has published eight books about New Orleans by New Orleanians since its inception in 2004, will promote its latest work, The House of Dance and Feathers: A Museum by Ronald Lewis, amid a grab-bag of 100-plus exhibitors — showing off comics, 'zines, clothing, photography, music, film and jewelry — and others with Ph.D.s in craftiness. The seventh-annual event is sandwiched between two associated shindigs at One Eyed Jacks (615 Toulouse St., 569-8361; a Dirty Coast fashion show (9 p.m. Friday) featuring designs by expo attendees, and an after-party twin bill (10 p.m. Saturday) with bounce rapper Ballzack and the elusive electro-pop duo Buttons. Expo admission $5; fashion show and concert tickets $10 each.
