Pictured: Mr Shaver holding it down at a dive bar in Pflugerville, Texas back in 2011. The Corsicana, Texas native blew the doors off Players that night. Then he got in his old, beat-up van and drove off to the next gig, and the next town.
Same as he’s always done.
Happy Birthday Billy Joe.
This event was last held locally on the streets of Bywater back in 2016. We had our crew out there, and were rightly pleased to see that Trixie Minx was the Grand Marshall of the parade.
Ms Minx has made a good living partying in her panties in public.
If you go:
The event starts at 5pm and will proceed from the Elephant Collective at 3610 Toulouse Street in Mid City.
Please bring extra pairs of new underwear to the event. There will be donation boxes for New Orleans homeless community.
Tom Worrell and Uganda Roberts will be playing the music of the giant.
There will be a cash bar, and snacks will be on offer as well.

Lil’ Queenie & The Percolators – My Darlin’ New Orleans
Happy Birthday Li’l Queenie. One of our city’s great soul singers turns 64 today.
Let’s pass the mic to Bunny Matthews who had this to say in an old Times Pic piece: “She cut her hair with fingernail clippers…She was dying her hair crimson red before the punk thing really hit here. Everybody was pretty hippie; she was different. … she’s proof that you can come from Old Metairie and have soul.”
Celebrate the launch of Kim Vaz Deville’s newest tome on the New Orleans Baby Doll phenomenon today at Xavier University.
Copies of “Walking Raddy: The Baby Dolls of New Orleans” will be up for sale, and a host of Baby Dolls will be in attendance.
Let’s hope a rumble doesn’t break out between the rival factions. Baby Dolls have been known to pack heat, and they love whiskey. Could be trouble. We’re still going.

And never forget the words of one of New Orleans most legendary chefs; let’s pass the mic to Austin Leslie of Chez Helene fame: “You fool with them, they’d cut you too” Mr Leslie once said whilst speaking on the Baby Dolls.
Little Freddie King is one of our heroes. We’ve lost count of how many times we’ve seen the McComb, Mississippi native play around New Orleans, and you can’t call yourself a local til you’ve watched him perform at BJ’s Lounge in the Upper 9th Ward.
His shows there are legend, and that’s where he’ll be performing tomorrow night Friday July 20th 2018. See y’all out there.
Happy Birthday Mr Freddie. 78 years old today.
