Voodoo Announces Its Daily Lineup

The Voodoo Music and Arts Experience has released its day to day lineup with Mumford and Sons and Zeds Dead likely headlining the main stages—Le Ritual and Le Plur—on Friday, October 26 in City Park. On Saturday, Childish Gambino, Odesza, Martin Garrix and Marilyn Manson occupy the top slots, and Arctic Monkeys, Modest Mouse, and 21 Savage will close Voodoo on Sunday. 

LCD Soundsystem Makes More Out of More

“Sometimes friends are jerks,” sang James Murphy Saturday night at the Orpheum, eliciting an audible gasp from the audience. They'd been singing along with “Dance Yrself Clean” word for word, and were tripped up by the lyric swap--one of only a few changes LCD Soundsystem made between their Voodoo set Friday and their Orpheum show. Many of the near-sell-out crowd had paid top dollar to attend both, but no one seemed to mind too much.

Voodoo News: The Killers Kept it Classic

Continuing in the Voodoo tradition of striking a nostalgic chord on Sunday, The Killers performed at the Altar stage in the final time slot of the weekend. Before the show started, it was clear that Le Plur headliner Dillon Francis outdrew The Killers, and those who came for the band were rather homogenous in demographic and commitment to the band.

Voodoo News: Pell Finds Peace

In a hip-hop landscape that grows more turbulent by the minute, 25-year-old rapper Jared “Pell” Pellerin is surprisingly zen. A New Orleans native, he moved to Mississippi with his family after the storm, went to college there, returned home in 2014 for just over a year, and then shipped off to L.A., where he currently resides. But despite all this motion, he’s stayed grounded.

Voodoo News: Benjamin Booker Breaks Boundaries

Benjamin Booker’s sound is tougher to pin down than it used to be. His first, self-titled album was a high-powered gut punch, 44 minutes of harsh, low-fi blues punk that blew the world away with its raw explosiveness. His latest project, Witness, which came out in June, is a different animal entirely. It’s tamer in terms of unchecked energy, but sonically, it’s much more adventurous. Booker is bringing his new songs to Voodoo, where he’ll play the South Course stage at 6 p.m. Friday.
