T-minus 5

Halloween in New Orleans
Today is the first day of the last theme weekend of the year, and kicking off our tribute to the spooktacular city of New Orleans is the title song of Concrete Blonde's most commercially successful album, 1990's Bloodletting.  Technically the song is called "Bloodletting (The Vampire Song)," which gives you an idea of where this is going.

New Orleans has become infamous for Anne Rice's vampires, but it is also home to numerous vampire tours, balls, and legends, and even a vampire film festival.  In "Bloodletting (The Vampire Song)," a poor soul seems to have had a bad case of vampirism slapped on her and is now headed down to New Orleans to think the situation over.  Don't you just hate that?  You think you can trust somebody and then it turns out they're undead.
