It’s testament to the size of Voodoo festival that it’s almost impossible to get a cell signal from the show due to the overloaded cell towers. I’ve been trying to keep up with the show via Twitter, and it’s been tricky. I think I’v gotten most of it up there, though. Overall, the quality of the music has been outstanding (with one notable exception being the band preceding Fishbone), whether it was older acts like Fishbone or Shudder To Think, bigger names like Erykah Badu, TV On The Radio and Thievery Corporation, or locals like “Wolfman” Washington or Marva Wright. The festival is superbly organized and maintained, and it never feels too crowded despite the number of folks. One more night to go; highlights include Ozomatli, Sharon Jones, Irma Thomas, R.E.M. and more.
