Happy belated Blogday to me, folks...

I spent it heading to one last Prospect .1 venue: the Hefler Warehouse welcome center. And now I can't decide what my favorite souvenir of the whole biennial is...

Maybe this? Click on the image to enlarge it:

by artist Dave McKenzie

...or perhaps it is the Prospect .1 Music CD I picked up for a reduced price at the welcome center?

Check the tracks:

  • Exit To Mystery Street - Paul Sanchez
  • Good Neighbor - John Boutte
  • Peace, Love, & Understanding - Big Sam's Funky Nation
  • Backyard Groove - Kirk Joseph's Backyard Groove
  • Dumaine Street Blues - Glen David Andrews and the Lazy Six
  • Over In The Glory Land - Preservation Hall Jazz Band
  • Powell's Place - Shannon Powell
  • Don't Be Sure - Paul Sanchez
  • Talkin' - Susan Cowsill
  • Bah-Duey-Duey - Big Sam's Funky Nation
  • Reefer Song - Glen David Andrews and the Lazy Six
  • SP - Shannon Powell
  • That's Wassup - Kalup Linzy Presents
  • Right Foot-Rebirth Got Fire-Feel Like Funkin' It Up - Rebirth Brass Band
Dan Cameron does know his music...

And it was a nice way to spend a chilly Friday afternoon.

Though I now wish more people would get to spend time walking through this:

Takashi Horisaki's Social Dress New Orleans - latex and cheesecloth castings of the walls of 1941 Caffin Avenue 730 days after the flood. It was like walking through the remnants of a living, breathing entity, now departed.
