Coming up in this week's Gambit: Happy St. Pat's and St. Joseph's Days

Posted By on Sat, Mar 13, 2010 at 9:15 PM

Some quick housekeeping: Someone wrote wondering what the music is behind the trailer for Tremé. It's called "Ring Shout -- Peace of Mind," and it's the opening cut from the 2007 album Congo Square, featuring Wynton Marsalis, Yacub Addy, Odadaa! and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. There's a DVD of the whole performance on Amazon, but for the CD itself you may have to go to the iTunes Music Store (where the individual song can also be downloaded for 99 cents). Also: WWL-TV has the list of St. Joseph's altars that will be open on Mar. 19, and if you're new in town and have never experienced a St. Joseph's altar, feel free to drop in on any of these and get a little bit of history.

Anyway. In this week's Gambit:

• The Louisiana Public Service Commission and sustainable-energy advocates have been at sixes and sevens over the state's master plan for setting alternative energy goals -- and the LPSC punted on voting on those goals this week. Will we remain behind the rest of the country when it comes to establishing 21st century energy policies? Alex Woodward talks to both sides and spells out the arguments ....

Clancy DuBos charts the Winnas, the Loozas, and the draws in the most recent round of elections, and analyzes what the results mean in the chutes-and-ladders of New Orleans politics ...

Chris Rose looks at the latest dustup between the NOPD and the Mardi Gras Indians ...

• The Idea Village is sponsoring its Entrepreneur Week beginning Mar. 20. Brandon Meginley previews ...

• The great documentarian Les Blank comes to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art this week, and Ken Korman talked to the filmmaker in advance of his visit ...

• ... and Ian McNulty chows down, World War II-style, at John Besh's American Sector restaurant.

There's more, of course. Check it out on the newsstand beginning Sunday afternoon, or check back on the main Gambit site Monday afternoon. Later.
