Krewe du Vieux + La Maison


Giant Cloud


The Krewe du Vieux after-show at La Maison was a pretty special event this year. Park the Van Records planned an awesome showcase with Caddywhompus, The Bellys, Giant Cloud, and Jean-Eric. The highlight of the night was the impromptu march through the venue by the Noicisian Coalition and the Camel Toe Lady Steppers. Gotta love Carnival!

Jean-Eric was a special treat, pretty much reminded me of a band that Punky Brewster would put together. ( = Awesome.)

Here's a video treat of Jean-Eric...

Sun Hotel releases EP

I fell in love with these guys during our last Noir Collective project where we helped combine local music with the film project, 50 People 1 Question. They've just released their latest EP, Team Spirit, and you've got to check out the song Swamp Thing.

This is a pretty young band in New Orleans, but is a combination of some pretty impressive players. You'll find the Caddywhompus kids and Gamma Ringo kids among the bunch .... check it out.
