Downtown - Alive and Happening!

Caddo Middle Magnet Student Connor Maloney Spent the Day Shadowing Times Photographer's and Shooting Pictures Enjoying Some Lovely Music Caddo Parish Courthouse Taken From Artisan's Court While Watching Documentaries and Short Films Black and White Film Shown Before Who is Bozo Texino?

Art. Film. Music. We found it all this week in downtown Shreveport.

The Brown Bag Series kicked off Friday around lunchtime with the Four Seasons String Quartet. Three more Fridays are left: April 27 - Freddie Pierson; May 4 - Professor Porkchop and the All Stars; May 11 - Buddy Flett and Friends. The live music is sponsored by Downtown Shreveport Unlimited.

Thursday night films were shown on the other side of the Caddo Parish Courthouse, across the street in the Artisan's Court. The most well known being Bill Daniel's* black and white documentary "Who is Bozo Texino?" It was an event put together by Susan Garner (hard to imagine this chicka is only in high school).

As we walked to our car after viewing the movies, near Nanking's we ran into folks getting out of the Coast Guard concert that had been at the Strand Theatre. Animation in an urban downtown, there are plenty of cities around America who'd be tremendously jealous if they knew.

Hi Kathryn! I like your blog. I love the pictures of Shreveport. I have never seen that part of Shreveport. I'm not from here. I didn't know that so many activites occur here. I live in an expensive hole. I absolutely love Grindhouse. Unfortunately, I didn't see it last weekend. I might watch it this weekend. Thanks for your comments. Which movie did you like the best?

Shardai - thanks for stopping by. I like your blog also. You've got lots of energy in your posts. is another great place to find out about cool stuff going on in Shreveport.

Grindhouse - I think I liked the whole experience. Zombies scare me to death but the revenge the girls get in Tarantino's Death Proof is pretty sweet.
