I just got back from a conference in New Orleans. (The annual meeting of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, US Chapter.) While there, Travis and I stayed with Travis’s friend Ben. This turned out to be a good thing, since Ben practically has the key to the city. Every block, he knew somebody! We spent each night (usually until around 4am) in backrooms and on balconies, often drinking for free!
On our last day, Travis and I needed a little break from things and rode the free ferry over to Gretna. On this ferry, there was a lady with a hat.
