Online ticket sales for the Galactic Alignment have ended but there are still a few tickets available at the Maple Leaf Bar. Bar opens at 3pm. Cash only.
On December 21st, 2012, the date of the winter solstice, The Mayan calendar cycle, 13th b'ak'tun, will come to an end. With it, Mayan experts from the Tulum Institute predict the beginning of an Era of Harmony. On that date, there will be a unique alignment of the cosmos which occurs only once every 64,000 years. The date will mark a monumental transition and an opportunity to realign priorities based on the principles of love, gratitude, care and respect for both humanity and our environment.
In honor of this once in a lifetime party, we'll be closing down the 8300 block of Oak Street NOLA and throwing a huge free block party with Food, Music, vendors, & much more. Master of ceremonies, the avatar of Bolon Yokte' K'uh, will host this epic event.
Your ticket to the Galactic Alignment includes an all night dance party with local musicians Stanton Moore, Ben Ellman, Jeff Raines, Rob Mercurio, Rich Vogel & special guests; Traditional Mayan Delicacies; and an initiation to the Rebirth marked by Bolon Yokte K'uh's decend from above...
When & Where
Maple Leaf Bar
SINCE 1974, the Maple Leaf Bar has existed as the longest-running music venue in New Orleans, outside of the French Quarter, welcoming a diverse and incredible array of talent to its stage, as well as some of the most devoted music lovers in the universe. “The Leaf” as it’s lovingly referred to by its regulars, is a New Orleans enthusiasts’ musical paradise 7 nights a week all year round.
During Jazzfest, the Leaf’s festivities are at their highest peak. This year marks the 41st anniversary of this Uptown institution, built on a legacy of dancing and libations, and the bar is pulling out all the stops to celebrate for Jazzfest. The bar will feature live music every night of the week with their Funk N’ Stay Up concert series beginning at 2:30am after the 11 o’clock shows end and proceeding on till the sun light comes shining down on Oak street. From late-night shows that go till sunrise every night, to legendary collaborations that have never been seen before, both musicians and fans know that once the sun goes down on the Fairgrounds, the Maple Leaf Bar is the place to be!!!
