technission Finding live music in New Orleans (12) RE: Finding live music in New Orleans 20 Feb 02

If you walk Rue Bourbon and don't hear music check your pulse. Watch out for hurricanes at Pat O'Brien's.(a drink not a storm) I think Al Hirt has/had a club of his own name but I never went. Most of the riverboats are modern diesels with decorative paddlewheels. There is at least one sternwheeler that is actually driven by its wheel, once I was there for an anniversary and it was booked by a corp. for a private party! So we walked on to a free ferry , went across river & back, and had a great view of sunset. If you drive the stretch of I-10 between superdome and french quarter you will pass above some cemeteries that were location for a scene from Easy Rider; the monotonous pile-driver in background of scene was placing the columns for the freeway. A cheap streetcar ride the entire length of St.Charles Ave. gives a pleasant view of some grand homes. When the cars reach the end of the line they don't turn around; all the seat backs flip position via a pivot at floor level so the seats then face the other way!(An ingenious mechanical thing for gearheads to appreciate.) Laissez le bon temps roulez
