Staples of the NOLA-Halloween festivities, both creepy cottages feature plenty of that will send a chill down even the most jaded horror fans. NOLA Defender makes a case for both sites.

The infamous metal band is in its third decade of performing. From Lou Reed to New Orleans' own Soul Rebels, the quartet has been no stranger to collaborations and guest spots recently.

As NoDef Burlesque columnist Moxie Sazerac declared earlier this month, Halloween in New Orleans is the unofficial holiday of Burlesque. Read her latest column to find out where to see some costumes come off after putting yours on.
