The Virtual Krewe of Vaporwave, with a big assist from the Arts Council of New Orleans, presents OEDIPUS MAX: A Vaporwave Rock Opera in the Piazza D’Italia on Friday, February 22nd.

It’s a ball… it’s an opera… it’s a party… it’s all of the things. Every single one of the things is what this is and you are invited!

Join us and the pseudo-secret artists of Virtual Krewe of Vaporwave as we light up the Piazza D’Italia with our three-act, extremely loud, projection-mapped MASTERPIECE of a Vaporwave Rock Opera, OEDIPUS MAX.

Multiple performance stages. Two cinema projectors. IDK how many other projectors… a lot. A LOT OF PROJECTORS. A 48-screen LED video trailer. Surround sound. A GIANT FACE. Something called a “Laser Libretto.” Conveniently placed trash receptacles. TOTAL IMMERSIVITY.

We’ll be there with the following artists at the DIY-est show in DIY history:

Naughty Palace
Bouffant Bouffant
BÊNNÍ
Nondi
Giorgio Murderer
Rathbone
This Bliss
Xiao Xiao
High Profile
Leisure Muffin
Maddiedoesntexist
Ondaverde

…and improv troupe Special Features as EXTREMELY RICH PEOPLE who mock your pauper’s lifestyle.
