Today we held a rally to save the Music of New Orleans and to bring attention to the Noise Ordinance that the City was going to try to pass. The City Council pulled the Noise Ordinance from session today, a small victory. However, the fight still goes on and we will not be silent. Music is not a crime. 

We marched on City Hall with a second line. We marched into City Hall with the music. We marched into Council Chambers to put to rest the onerous Noise Ordinance. We also held an impromptu meeting in Chambers and the only City Council member who showed up and welcomed us was Cantrell.

These changes, these sound levels, these non enforceable rules are funded by big money and a hand-full of wealthy citizens that think their money means more than our votes. We showed City Hall today that we are paying attention and that we will be heard. Musicians matter, the little people vote, and we love this city. We are not content to be second class citizens. 

Long Live New Orleans Music!

Complex asked me to list the 25 best bars in NOLA. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. ›

I’d like to give a nod to the Dixie Taverne (RIP). It was a punk/ metal/ dive bar on the corner of Canal and Jeff Davis. I basically grew up in that bar and got to see and play some amazing shows there. It’s also the only bar I’ve ever woken up under the pool table.

Not sure how I feel about this. The New Orleans Hornets logo with the fleur de lis as the wings of the hornet was, in my opinion, one of the coolest logos I’ve seen. This looks good and I like the typeface but I don’t know about the “Pelicans”. My vote was for New Orleans Krewe. It was up for discussion and I thought it was a good name with ties to the city. Maybe it’ll grow on me.

See ya around, old friend.

It bums me out that I can’t get one today after what happened to the bakery.

One of the coolest sites on the internet is Tulane University’s Louisiana Research Collection of Mardi Gras costume and float designs. Here, thousands upon thousands of pieces of concept art detail parade pageantry dating back to the mid-1800s.
