  • 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! You Pretty Things" as the dirge to a bombastic, brassy "Suffragette City."

Watch the band and a fraction of the colorful, Bowie-fied crowd below.
