    And it is an even better weekend for New Orleans music because Treme is back on Sunday with a third season.

    These guys play 20 minute sets in NO and the audience cycles in and out for each set. Tourists. First time I went there, I spent the entire evening, thanked them for one of the best times I’ve ever had, and left a double sawbuck in the hat. There’s a sign on the wall that says “Requests $1, The Saints $2.” Someone in the audience had the brilliant idea of requesting Summertime. They acknowledged it wasn’t their usual fare, but the trumpet player put down his horn and sang it, and it was one of the best versions I’ve ever heard – Dixieland hymn.

    I thought that the cover photograph showed a hovering, spherical, chrome robot with its arm around a lady’s shoulder. It took me several seconds to work out it was someone playing a tuba. Ain’t perception grand :D
