- It's Voodoo Music Experience weekend, and Gambit has several writers at City Park to get all the information, soak up the music, flirt and goof off. We've even set up a separate Voodoo blog just for musical posts -- click the blinking red box to the right for interviews, remixes, and reviews, or just click Voodoo08.

- In our cover story, D. Eric Bookhardt previews the upcoming, enormous Prospect.1 biennial -- the galleries, the installations, and all the ways you can take in the art. (If you haven't heard of Prospect.1 yet, you will. Soon. And did we mention it's all free? Including shuttle service?)...

- Blood on the D.A.nce floor: Clancy DuBos looks at the race for district attorney between Leon Cannizzaro and Ralph Capitelli. How will the candidates make a big push for votes in the final week before election day, and will the mudslinging get scary just in time for Halloween?...

- Noah Bonaparte Pais interviews Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu about next week's World Cultural Economic Forum and drops in on the latest project of Central City's Mondo Bizarro...

- Alison Fensterstock listens to Quintron and Miss Pussycat's new "Wild New Orleans R&B / Punk / Organ Dance Party!" album, Too Thirsty for Love...

- Rick Barton takes the measure of Oliver Stone's presidential biopic W....

- Ian McNulty finds good dim sum on the West Bank...

- ...and Gambit Weekly announces its endorsements in the Congressional races as well as on all the other ballot measures.

There will also be cartoons and Sudoku. Have a good weekend.
