The Storm, The Cage and the High Lonesome
The rebirth of the Hi-Ho Lounge and of New Orleans Itself
When I moved back to Baton Rouge three years ago, fresh from my foolish sojourn elsewhere, one of the things I was most excited about was being close to New Orleans again. I came up in Houma, so New Orleans was the place we would take off to once one of our parents relinquished the car. New Orleans was my Other, my glamorous, dirty, scary, glorious other place I came to know and love.
