Today we held a rally to save the Music of New Orleans and to bring attention to the Noise Ordinance that the City was going to try to pass. The City Council pulled the Noise Ordinance from session today, a small victory. However, the fight still goes on and we will not be silent. Music is not a crime. 

We marched on City Hall with a second line. We marched into City Hall with the music. We marched into Council Chambers to put to rest the onerous Noise Ordinance. We also held an impromptu meeting in Chambers and the only City Council member who showed up and welcomed us was Cantrell.

These changes, these sound levels, these non enforceable rules are funded by big money and a hand-full of wealthy citizens that think their money means more than our votes. We showed City Hall today that we are paying attention and that we will be heard. Musicians matter, the little people vote, and we love this city. We are not content to be second class citizens. 

Long Live New Orleans Music!

Musicians marched on City Hall, and wound up taking over the City Council Chamber. If this had been in a film or tv show, people from elsewhere would have dismissed the scene as too implausible.

And the best thing you might be able to do today is get outside, thank the skies for this day, and be the best darn broken piece of lovely you can be. Broken loveliness is the world’s most common language.

It was damn good, too.

I love this place. Very romantic little restaurant.

Mona Lisa’s is great and you should try the place next door too. Bennachin in an African restaurant. We stop there on my food history tour and have some of their African Jambalaya. (be forewarned, link has auto play music)
