Voodoo Preview: What The Scorseses Aren't

The Scorseses want you to know they’re not a ska band. Yes, they started as a ska/punk band, and yes, they’ll play some upstrokes, but when drummer Chris Noto and singer Vince Ebeier count off the artists who influenced the members of the band, no ska bands get named. Instead, they mention Streetlight Manifesto, Miles Davis, NOFX, Victor Wooten, and Bela Fleck among others.

The Christmas Express in Song

[NSFW] On Friday, The Howlin' Wolf hosts the NOLA Polar Express, a benefit to help make sure that children at Ocshner and Children's Hospital have a Merry Christmas. Local indie rock bands will play on the Wolf's main stage and in the Den, and since some of the bands will play their versions of Christmas songs, My Spilt Milk asked them about their background with Christmas music.
