More Info

We are proud and excited to announce the arrival of Salon of Shame to New Orleans! Salon of Shame is a comedy diary reading show in which you share your most mortifying writings from your youth for the enjoyment of friends and strangers alike! Originating in Seattle in 2005, the show has long held a cult status in that city and now has sibling shows in Columbus, OH, Florida, and NOLA. The rules are simple: You have 5 minutes to read a writing from your youth. The writings must be original, must be at least 10 years old, and must not shame or threaten others. That's it! The inaugural Salon of Shame NOLA will be a benefit for Trystereo, your friendly neighborhood harm reductionists. Founded in New Orleans in 2011, Trystereo is a free, volunteer-run public health resource for people who use drugs in New Orleans and Southeastern Louisiana. Despite the title of this event, Trystereo works to affirm the health and dignity for all of their participants. For more information and to learn how to support this work, please visit their website: https://www.trystereo.org/ Tickets will be available online soon (setting up our ticket provider!) as well as at the door the day of the event. 100% of all ticket and merch sales and 20% of all drink sales will be donated directly to Trystereo. Hooray! To make this event a success we will need Readers (yes, that is an official title). Please sign up to read at the first Salon of Shame NOLA here: https://forms.gle/YuYB4UbZEp5rrwRm6 Our aim is to make Salon of Shame NOLA accessible to everyone. If you are deaf or hard of hearing please let us know and we shall work to find an ASL interpreter. If you need accommodations for wheelchairs or other reasons please let us know as well. For any further questions, please either message us directly through our Facebook page or send us an email at salonofshamenola@gmail.com. We look forward to exploiting our youthful embarrassment for your entertainment!
