Record Raid Returns to Bywater for 15th Spin


With DJs, live music, raffles, and an after-party, Saturday’s Record Raid in the Bywater feels like it could be an anniversary celebration. It’s just that local DJ and Record Raid founder Hunter King has hosted so many of the occasional music markets, he can’t keep track anymore.


Record Raid Takes Bywater


Helping music lovers wax lyrical since 2009, the quarterly-ish “music flea market” known as the Record Raid gathers vendors from all over the Gulf Coast to sell their wares. On Saturday, June 29, the needle will drop for the second time this year, heading back downtown with a new summer location at the Old Ironworks (612 Piety St.) in the Bywater.


Google Grants Wishes of Blog "NOLA Street View"


Perhaps Google heard the noise from New Orleans, or perhaps they didn't. Either way, Google Street View was updated today with photos from 2011, providing all who search with a less flood-torn view of the town. The revamp is exactly what Hunter King and Annalisa Kelly were pushing for when they created a blog called NOLA Street View http://nolastreetview.blogspot.com and took to the streets to document how the city has changed since the last time the search engine's popular maps function was updated.


Google Street View Doesn't Show Current New Orleans Landscape, Locals Say


New Orleanians saw FEMA trailers and ever-present dumpsters and many of the houses that looked like they were about to fall over disappear over the last six years of recovery. But there's a version of New Orleans where the remnants of the Federal Flood are still ever-present. Google Street View, the Google Maps feature that offers block-by-block browsing via photographs of the street, hasn't been updated for New Orleans since 2007, and it hasn't gone unnoticed. In order to show Silicon Valley how far we've come, newly up-and-running local blog NOLA Street View is setting out to document what's changed.

“I have many babies,” Hunter King said between sips of his signature Dr. Pepper.  “This is a big baby.”
