Krewe du Vieux Comes Early, Often in 2013


With an early Mardi Gras, Carnival krewes have less time to get their floats and costumes ready. Plus, the marching groups had to do the Super Bowl shuffle to make way for the Big Game. The parade season tone-setters of Krewe du Vieux - who are already under the gun for this year's Jan. 19 march - could be complaining about being in a world of shit as a result of these developments. But, as always, they've simply released Le Monde de Merde for the rest of us to roll around in with glee, and announced a theme that cuts off all feelings of misery and misfortune marked by daily life in the City of Dreams at the head.


Krewe du Vieux Reveals Theme, Tweaks Route


This afternoon, the annual hour has come once again when we stand aside and herald the coming of another publication that is much more given to fits of folly and salacious stories than we could ever hope to be. Le Monde de Merde, the newspaper of Krewe du Vieux, has once again appeared on newstands (and the Internerd) to announce the coming of the bawdy band's annual locally-targeted romp through Faubourg Marigny and Vieux Carre. Following custom, the Feb. 4, 2012, parade's theme, royalty and route map are contained therein.
