While walking near the Time Warner Arena in downtown Charlotte, I ran into a team of folks from Money By The Pound Records, which included notable Memphis rap artist Skool Boy, who has garnered some attention over the last couple of years, and is currently on a cross-country tour.

The End Is Where We Begin

The Dumaine Street Gang second-line ended where it began in the Treme neighborhood, but the crowds seemed reluctant to disperse. One crowd hung around the corner outside the Café Treme where the parade had ended, while a much larger crowd remained under the bridge on Claiborne, which turned into a car and bike show until the police came and dispersed the crowd on horseback, New Orleans, 12/02/12

Under The Bridge

When the Dumaine Street Gang second-line came to the Claiborne bridge for the third and final time of the afternoon, there was a crowd of several hundred people under the bridge. From there we made our way back to the corner of St. Philip and Villere where it had all begun four hours before, New Orleans, 12/02/12
