New Orleans, Spring 2006



Above is some footage from a club I went to in New Orleans earlier this year. The venue is well known as a bounce club but you can hear mostly snap music (and maybe a bit of crunk too) in the video. If you pause it after 21 seconds you can see my left ear in the reflection in someone's sunglasses.



This was my tour guide for the week, DJ Chicken.

I took loads of pics that will be wasted otherwise, so you might as well have a look. I used a disposable camera and a cheap compact camera so most of the pics aren't so hot. Some of the better ones are by a photographer called Chris Keenan, who was also out there with me.
