Today in New Orleans: 7.13.12
Today, Uncle Lionel Batiste is honored with a second line and tribute at Sweet Lorraine's. It's also Friday the 13th, the prime day for Creepy Fest. Elsewhere, there's a Bastille Day fireworks celebration, and the Southern Summer Comfort Book Tour reaches New Orleans.

NOLA Bounce Queens Receive Prince Paul
by Brad Rhines
This is not your father’s corporate shill. At Scion A/V, the car company—a division of Toyota—latches on to music, art, and film, to prove they’re down with today’s young car buyers. In addition to sponsoring art exhibitions and releasing records, a new video series features legendary hip-hop producer Prince Paul traveling the country (in a Scion, we presume) checking out local scenes. The most recent episode finds Paul in New Orleans, where he gets a crash-course in Bounce, with a little guidance from Big Freedia, Katey Red, and Rusty Lazer.
