Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo

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.

Jared Zeller of the Mothership Foundation
and his group of approximately 25 dedicated
volunteers orchestrated the second annual
Bayou Boogaloo.

Conservative estimates put the attendance
over 10,000. Even the staunchest curmudgeon
would use the term "wildly successful" when
referring to this year's Bayou Boogaloo.

The film below is formatted so both users
of MACs and PCs can view it. Check it out:

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out
to attend this year's Bayou Boogaloo. The
proceeds go to help rebuild Comiskey Park.

Look for some progress there soon!
