I went down to New Orleans on October 30 – November 5. The official purpose of my trip was to give a paper and screen a documentary at the Society for Ethnomusicology annual conference, but as a drummer, musician, and lover of music, it’s a trip I’ve long wanted to make. I made sure to maximize my time in New Orleans away from the conference, and quickly fell in love with the city. I was mostly on foot throughout the French Quarter, Warehouse District, CBD, and the Marigny, and tried to travel light, so my proper camera mostly stayed in my hotel room. Here’s all of the photos off of my phone. More to come.
It was my great pleasure to attend the imagineNATIVE Film & Media Arts Festival this year. I wrote up a recap for my neechies over at RPM.fm with a focus on the music. Artists featured during the festival included my good friend Nick Sherman, who is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter to watch.
