Wandering as near to the PlayStation/Billboard Stage as I could, I caught the gypsy-punk superband Gogol Bordello. Although I had to watch mostly from the giant screen above the stage, I could hear the band's thumping presence easily from right in front of the sound tent.
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.
