Is tomorrow. Free all day festival...er...boogaloo. Like I said many times, you can't have a weekend in this city without a street festival of some kind. Here is the stage schedule.
Hopefully, I can make it out to this one to see Soul Rebels. Been meanin' to see them at Le Bon Temps Roule on Thursdays, but never have been able to make it. Last night I could have gone, but I decided instead to watch a pirate movie until 2:30am at the Prytania Theatre. (It was an awesome pirate movie, by the way, and any of those Yankee reviewers for Slate or MSN either don't know pirates, haven't watched the first movies, or both. I will most likely go see it three more times. Perhaps the darkest and most violent straight up Disney flick ever. If you like big movie theatre movies, and aren't so dull you can follow multiple plotlines at the same time, this one's worth the trip to see on the big screen.)
Speaking of multiple plotlines, this little political/southern cultural/music/food loving phenomenon you all know an love as Hurricane Radio passed, quite accidentally, our 800th Post. I can't believe that a little idea I had back in December of 2003 for a cool email address would become a blog in early 2005 and last 801 online posts that people still click over to read. Thanks, y'all.
And for your pirate music listening pleasure, click over to Loch Ness Johnny of South Carolina.
