visiting New Orleans--a couple of questions [Nov. 9th, 2010|10:56 pm]
Life and Other Unrealities in the French Quarter

I am looking for suggestions on *special* (unique, characteristic) pet boutiques and also on places for unique jewelry (wood or stone, nothing too pricey, more in the one-of-a-kind vein). we're staying right near the French Quarter!

and if you have any tips on pet-friendly eateries, share them away!

finally, do tell me where I could try absinthe oyster soup!!! we'll be there in the second week of Dec.

thank you. I can't wait to visit the famous city!

Get ready for the next evolution in live Industrial music.

New Orleans Scrapping Surveillance Cameras [Oct. 28th, 2010|10:25 am]
Life and Other Unrealities in the French Quarter

[Current Music |Nelson Foltz And Tom Lynn - Second Interlude Part 1 (Drone Zone: Atmospheric ambient space music. Se]

        Supposedly there is a crime camera on Jackson Square.  People smoke crack, deal drugs, and smoke pot in view of the camera.   rinks throw bottles and beat each other up.  Nobody is ever busted.

        Below from Bruce Schneier.

==================================

New Orleans Scrapping Surveillance Cameras

http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2010/10/new_orleans_scr.html

They're not worth it:

In seven years, New Orleans' crime camera program has yielded six indictments: three for crimes caught on video and three for bribes and kickbacks a vendor is accused of paying a former city official to sell the cameras to City Hall.

Who are we kidding? Vacation's are for suckers. [Oct. 7th, 2010|07:23 pm]
Life and Other Unrealities in the French Quarter

corrosion_nola
Well it turns out vacation isn't all its cracked up to be.

So fuck that shit.

With great pleasure, we would like to announce the new iteration of Corrosion.  The longest running goth-industrial night in the state is back in action and ready to put on bigger, better and more fantastic events than ever before.  We've done our homework this time.  DJ DedSexi, freshly back from his North American tour has taken up the reigns and is bringing Corrosion in directions only the hottest clubs on the continent are daring to try.  Forget about weekly club nights.  Try weekly monthlies on for size.  DJ Ded Sexi is giving the Corrosion DJs their own pet project night to bring you the best in costumes, theme nights and atmosphere.  Rather than the week in, week out grind of theme-less nights (because, let's be realistic, we've all heard the playlist, right?), we're turning to more specialized areas to offer greater variety and substance to our evening festivities.

Meanwhile, Vendetta has been doggedly pursuing the best in live shows and festivals.  The first show of our season, as you might have heard, will be Combichrist on November 3rd, at the Howlin Wolf.  Their live show is now so intense, we had to measure the Wolf's stage by hand to make sure the show would actually fit!  Tickets are 15$ in advance at ticketweb.com, and 20$ at the door.  Do not miss out.  Needless to say we have an after party booked, but standby on details.

Other big boy shows you can expect are legendary Front Line Assembly and, straight from Germany, Faderhead.  More details on those later.  Plus, keep an eye on us for local bands, new artists and other performers, like the beautiful and deadly Zombiegirl!

We'll be working with those elegant vampires of the Endless Night Festival.  Look for us at the after the Anne Rice Ball, and on Halloween night itself for the official festival afterparty!  We'll be working with DJs from arond the world, and probably getting handed our asses!

And finally, in July 2011, it gives us our deepest pleasure to announce Southern Gothic Festival II, at the Howlin Wolf and all over town.  We'll be bringing black clad brothers and sisters from all over the country down to hang with us in our dullest month, a shot in the arm for a scene that needs it bad.  we'll see you there!

That's it for now.  Check out our new facebook at (floodland facebook).  Everything is getting an upgrade as we continue to rebuild, restore and reinvent North America's best scene.

This weekend, Southern Gothic Festival! [Jul. 12th, 2010|08:17 pm]
Life and Other Unrealities in the French Quarter

corrosion_nola
Starting this Friday, come on out and enjoy year one of what's going to be the best part of the summer, Southern Gothic Festival!  With Goth and Industrial bands from all over the US, and Europe, DJs from every nook and cranny in Louisiana as well as great opportunities to buy band merch and other sundries, you will not want to miss this party.  Three days of events, 16 bands, with headliners Hanzel und Gretyl and the Cassandra Complex, 9 djs all rolled into one cheap ticket. 

You can find out all the details at www.southerngothicfestival.com

Your LAST CHANCE to get a local benefit ticket is this Wednesday at Corrosion (at the Rubyfruit Jungle, 1135 Decatur street, doors at 10).  Tickets bought direct are 35$.  Online, you can pick them up for $45 at www.ticketweb.com.  It should be noted that Ticketweb incorrectly implies a ticket is needed for each day.  This is not so!  At the door, tickets can be bought for 55$, and you can beat the rush, and avoid missing out by hitting out pre-registration at the Howlin Wolf Den, 907 South Peters.

So come one, come all and let's have a little dark fun in the middle of July!
