Too busy parading to write, but I have been taking photo and videos. For more information and history about Krewe of Muses, read last year’s post. This year, the theme was “Muses go Shopping.” Celebrity guests included hometown girl, Patricia Clarkson (known here as Councilwoman, Jackie Clarkson’s daughter) riding in the giant lit stiletto and Theresa Andersson, singing live atop a giant swan followed by our beautiful city made of papier mache hats. We even spotted Ted Danson quietly marching along, taking it all in.
Bands included St. Augustine, O. Perry Walker, Xavier, Kennedy , L.B. Landry, West Jefferson, Walter L. Cohen and Warren Easton. Lots of traditional flambeau lighting was followed by the Big Easy Rollergirls, Lady Godiva, Circus Arts, Rolling Elvi, Pussyfooters, Camel Toe Steppers, Stooges Brass Band, 610, Stompers, Bearded Oysters, DancingMan504, Panorama Brass Band, the new NOLA Cherry Bombs and Noisician Coalition. Enjoy them all in the video!
