We know you're all caught up in Halloween and the Voodoo Music Experience, but Mardi Gras looms in the distance, and the always-satirical, always-raunchy, always-thinking-ahead Krewe du Vieux has determined its king, queen, and theme.
This year's king: Dr. John.
This year's queen: Mother Miriam Chamani of the Voodoo Spiritual Temple on N. Rampart St.
This year's theme: All Fired Up (in reference to the fire that took out much of the krewe's den on Aug. 4).
KdV rolls on Jan. 30, 2010. It's not too early to ink it on your calendar ... and arrange for a babysitter. (And, given the crowds last year, a parking space.)
