Voodoo Experience wants you to worship the music
When Muddy Waters referenced a "gypsy woman" in the song of the same name, he was giving a shout out to traditions of Louisiana's long-standing voodoo culture. New Orleans continues to celebrate those traditions with its 10th annual Voodoo Music Experience. And while the name may sound rather ominous to those not in the know, the experience is more of the musical variety than the hexing one.
The weekend's 2008 lineup was recently announced and features the likes of R.E.M., Tokyo Police Club, Manchester Orchestra, Lil Wayne, the Cold War Kids and many others. The festival takes place October 24-26, but you should probably start getting in touch with your inner gypsy now.
