Seered Suckers: Pols Laud Louisiana's Linen
The Pelican State is famed her cultural exports such as cuisine and music, but our contributions to the greater zeitgeist also include fashion. Seersucker, the native fabric of NOLA, is being celebrated this week through a series of Seersucker Days. There is some debate as to when the holiday falls, but in Washington D.C., Louisiana’s Senator Bill Cassidy spearheaded the celebrations on Thursday (6.09).

A Wet Saturday at Jazz Fest (Photos)
On Saturday (4.30), the Fair Grounds were wet, very wet. Still, early end aside, Jazz Fest did manage to pack in six solid hours of music and fun.

The Melvins Will Destroy You
Photos from the Sludge-Metal Gods' Saturday Show
Saturday (4.02) night patrons of One Eyed Jacks were pummeled by the powerful rumble of The Mighty Melvins. Thirty-plus years into their career, The Melvins reminded the crowd of their sonic value and staying power. Dale Crover, King Buzzo, and current touring bass player Steven McDonald delved deep into the band’s discography to dust off gems such as "Eye Flys," "Queen," and "Revolve." The set was peppered with covers of obscure "Green River," "Malfunkshun," and "Redd Kross" tunes. Among the covers played were particularly raucous, rocking versions of Kiss’ "Deuce" and set closer "Halo of Flies" by Alice Cooper. Fans of The Melvins did not leave the venue disappointed.

Carnival Photo Recap
On Monday (2.08) the party started and contunuedd through into Mardi Gras. There really is no way to do justice to New Orleans' Carnival celebration. Fat Tuesday simply must be experienced for yourself. However, NoDef's Paulo Steven Diniz sacrificed safety and liver alike to embed amongst the crowds and bring y'all some snapshots of the big fete.
Cork Parade in Photos
A favorite foot parade of locals, Krewe of Cork opened the bottle on Carnival Friday (1.29) afternoon. For a few hours, hundred of locals dresssed as grapes, glasses, and bottles meandering through the Quarter dispensing a fine vintage of Mardi Gras cheer. Paulo Steven Diniz was out on the scene so y'all can sip in scene the below.
