This evening, Dr. A and I will join 17 other members of the sub-krewe of PAN in recreating the 2006 Krewe du Vieux parade for the HBO seriesTreme. PAN’s theme that year was, of course: BUY US BACK, CHIRAC. Jeez, I almost feel like one of those Civil War buffs except I’ll be a French Catholic priest and Dr. A will be a pre-revolutionary fop.
KdV 2006 was the first Carnival parade post-K and it featured the late, great Ashley Morris as the mime trapped in the glass. My big-n-boisterous friend Chris Summa will be our mime tonight. I suspect we’ll feel the Big Mon’s presence since he was a big fan ofTreme creator David Simon.This one’s for you, mon ami.
