The Celebration of African Arts and Music Festival

The Celebration of African Arts and Music Festival faces a formidable challenge: representing a continent's worth of culture in one night. That goal may be unattainable, but with poetry, music, art, dance and a fashion show, the event will get as close to success as possible. Attendees dressed in African/Afrocentric attire will be eligible to enter a raffle. The party benefits Little Drops Orphanage. 9 p.m. Midtown Lounge, 2117 Chenevert. For information, call 281-606-5844 or visit www.caamfest.org. $20.
Sun., Sept. 6, 9 p.m., 2009
