Festival New Orleans
He’s in the very ugly new Matter nightclub – decor courtesy of NCP. I daresay they call it ‘neo-brutalist’ or ‘post industrial’ or something equally up itself (read ‘cheap’) and I guess at least it doesn’t show if beer gets spilled all over it. A quick sloosh down with an industrial car wash and you’re laughing. There’s an enormous plastic lean-to in the middle for the sound man, and the one thing I’ll give it is good acoustics, which is more than I can say for the main ‘Louisiana’ stage.
