Treme "Do You Know What It Means": Don't Ask Me About My House

New Orleans done right.

“That boy named Elvis?” Kermit Ruffins says pointing at Elvis Costello.
“You’re just standing there telling me that all you want to do is get high, play some trumpet, and barbecue in New Orleans your whole damned life?” says an exasperated Davis.
To which Ruffins replies: “That’ll work.”

Off to catch at least a couple hours sleep, but I'll leave you with some music selections from tonight. Comments coming later, but I'll chime in first on the Louis Prima inclusion. Not only was Prima a native son of New Orleans, but it was also rumored he was associated with the mob, so it ties in with Davis' rant about wanting the mafia to supervise the rebuilding of New Orleans.
