In response to a recent stringent noise ordinance proposal, the Music and Culture Coalition of New Orleans organized a rally at City Hall. Crowds of musicians, artists, and culture bearers came out of the noisy woodwork of our city to drive the point home: WE LIVE LOUD here in New Orleans. We LOVE our music, we LOVE the sounds of the city, and our many decibels make NOLA the music capital of the world!
I created this banner as a contribution to the cause. We carried it into the City Council Chambers, leading a second line parade with an army of brass instruments. We stormed the chambers in full force and the musicians played funeral dirges to lay the ordinance to rest.
Only in New Orleans.
