The Krewe of Muses, one of Carnival's most all-time fun organizations, announced to its members this afternoon that the B-52's -- one of the music world's most all-time fun bands -- would be headlining the Muses ball Feb. 12.
"Word gets out quick!" said Muses spokeswoman Jeanne Walker, laughing. "We just told our members this afternoon."
So how can the public get on its own Private Idaho and Party Out of Bounds at the ball?
"Same way we've always done it," Walker said. "Through a Muse. You need to get a ticket from a Muse, so find one and ask her."
