Voodoo: Last Call for 2014

[Updated] Thoughts that we didn’t get around do during Voodoo 2014:

- Here’s a thought for Voodoo 2015. Spike the Le Carnival stage and go for something more cutting edge. It’s hard to imagine more contemporary headliners who could deliver headliner-sized audiences, and headliners are exactly that—the top of the story, but hardly the festival’s full story.

The story Friday at Voodoo wasn’t so much OutKast as OutKast’s audience, which despite a chilling wind was at least as large if not larger than those that showed for Nine Inch Nails and Pearl Jam last year. They also seemed to have more fun, dancing for much of the show. Admittedly, OutKast’s music is more conducive to a party than the purposeful Eddie Vedder and Trent Reznor. OutKast also drew a much younger audience that was more mixed along racial and gender lines.

[Updated] There has been a lot of speculation about who was the Voodoo Music Experience's third headliner on its Ritual Stage. Foo Fighters and Outkast were obvious, but after that it wasn't obvious. The last time Arctic Monkeys played the area, it was a show at the Varsity in Baton Rouge last year, but this summer they've been headlining festivals including Lollapalooza.
