I managed to catch an act I've been waiting to see for some time now, the New Orleans Bingo! Show, over at the Bingo! Parlour (a small circus tent). I got more than I expected... Aside from some particularly ghoulish zombie costumes, ringleader Clint Maegden and his cohorts treated the packed tent to some scarily energetic music.

On Halloween night, both the Voodoo Festival and Daylight Savings Time come together. Consider that New Orleans has always been the Petri Dish of music so tonight we'll turn back the clock not just one hour but one generation as we focus on the music of this unusual city.
We visit Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro, a music club on Frenchmen Street that features live performances 7 days a week. We start off with Rebecca Barry, an Alabama native who came to New Orleans in the 90s to study with players like Tony Dagradi, Ed Peterson and Ellis Marsalis.
