  • Preservation Hall's Clint Maedgen on saxophone performing "Heroes" in a second line from the Mississippi River into the French Quarter honoring the late David Bowie.

A seemingly infinite sea of lightning bolt-painted faces, elaborate wigs and glittery contour makeup filled the French Quarter for a second line tribute to David Bowie, who died Sunday, Jan. 10. Members of Arcade Fire and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band led the second line from the hallowed hall to the Mississippi River and ended at One Eyed Jacks, all to the strains of Bowie hits, from "Oh!

The Krewe of Muses announced Solange Knowles is this 2016's honorary Muse. She'll ride on the krewe's signature 17-foot-tall shoe float on Feb. 4 on the Uptown parade route. The krewe annually selects an honorary Muse who has been a role model for women in the arts. 

Knowles is a singer, actress and founder of record label Saint Records. Her 2003 debut R&B album Solo Star reached No. 49 on the Billboard 200 album chart. She's the younger sister of pop star Beyonce Knowles. In New Orleans, she has supported the Make It Right Foundation and Son of a Saint mentorship program.

Knowles married Alan Ferguson in New Orleans at the Marigny Opera House in November 2014.
