Coming up in Gambit: Is anyone running for mayor of this crazy town? edition

Posted By on Sat, Sep 26, 2009 at 7:27 PM

• It's the fall Arts & Entertainment edition of Gambit, which gave us an excuse to put KISS, Nicolas Cage and a ballet dancer on the cover. Seriously, there are pages of info on upcoming concerts, plays, exhibits, movies, sporting events, arena shows and other divertissements to help you mark your calendar for the next few months.

• With Karen Carter Peterson declining to run for mayor, a lot of people this week were wondering if anyone was interested in running City Hall. One man is -- and in an essay, James Carville explains why he would be running for New Orleans mayor ... if he could.

Clancy DuBos does the political algebra behind the City Council pay-raise question -- and with Councilmember Jackie Clarkson declaring on Friday (after 5 pm) that she would not be supporting the raise, the algebra approaches calculus ...

• In his latest "Suspect Device" cartoon, Greg Peters analyzes the mayoral race terror threat chart ...

Alex Woodward takes a look at a local school that's going solar. Elsewhere in our monthly Green Matters section, there's word of a carbon-neutral all-lesbian eco-cruise setting sail from New Orleans ....

• This fall brings a slew of up-and-coming indie rock acts to town. Noah Bonaparte Pais talks to the talent bookers at some local clubs, and finds the increased competition means good things for concertgoers.

• ... and restaurant dude Ian McNulty finds formidable Vietnamese cuisine in Metairie.

That's it. And while you're waiting for the new Gambit, we highly recommend checking out last night's edition of Informed Sources on WYES-TV, with panelists Errol Laborde, Travers Mackel, John Hill and Ethan Brown. It gets good when the conversation turns to this week's U.S. Department of Justice report about conditions at the O.P.P.

See you on the newsstand.
