Friday night is home to the Anne Rice Vampire Lestat Fan Clubâ€™s main event. This year the theme was Theatre of the Vampires and featured performances by Voltaire, Paul Mercer, Curie, The Changelings, burlesque acts and even theatrical enactments of scenes from Interview with the Vampire.
There will be performances by six local bands: Sirens, The Heartbreak Therapy, Curie, Titanium Caterpillars, Pancake, and Meta The Man. â€śI am so happy that so many bands wanted to be involved in this event! I feel like the message is more than relevant within the younger music crowd in New Orleans." [continue...]
LeStrange and crew were invited to perform by members of the band Curie, who had also played for the occupants. Performances in the encampment are organized by a subgroup which calls itself â€śOccupy the Stage;â€ť besides Curie, theyâ€™ve so far included local acts like Lynn Drury, Sweet Street Symphony, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.
