NEW YORK NIGHT TRAIN
MARDI GRAS 2006 FEILD REPORT
a long-delayed bookend of sorts on my Ninth
Ward Underground: Katrina and Beyond Issue. While these
pages were intended to chronicle what I witnessed of the underground
music activities during Mardi Gras, it wound up being primarily
the story of the 9th Ward Marching Band and its extended family.
Hopefully this will illustrate the fact that, despite a number of
setbacks, the New Orleans scene is more than just alive... but kicking
9th Ward Marching Band does the 9th Ward Parade, Royal Pendletons,
Viva l'American Death Ray Music,
MC Trachiotomy and El Tonios, Mad Happy, etc.
Lundi Gras! 9th Ward Marching
Band plays Proteus and Twilight
Mardi Gras! Peaches, Mr. Quintron
and Miss Pussycat
No floats or any of that but
of the above and more...
mini-documentary with 9th Ward Marching Band footage and interviews
More amazing pictures, accounts, artist sites, etc.
