10 Pix from 11th Voodoo Music Experience

The Voodoo Music Experience just wrapped its 11th year, and volume-wise it goes to 11 (to borrow a phrase from Spinal Tap). Voodoo had an uphill climb, announcing its lineup on the weekend Michael Jackson died and fighting to change its date to Halloween for a New Orleans City Park extravaganza with George Clinton and and Kiss.

In association with the Life is Art Foundation, this year's festival was full of eye-catching installations. Here are 10 of our photos from a weekend that included a full moon and Halloween, as we now segue into a Saints Game.

Who Dat indeed.



A wild thing in front of, appropriately enough, The Pogues.

Last year Sony Playstation and Southern Comfort hosted its Little Big Planet kickoff to benefit the New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund at Voodoo. It's always worth coming home to the party.
