Rock Show

An Australian Roadie asked me if it was safe to be standing at 1:00 AM under the N. Robertson bridge.
"I'm paranoid," I said. "so don't listen to me."
The NOPD detail had pulled off an hour ago.
"But don't go fucking around."

The reason, not six blocks away:

One man is dead and another is hospitalized in stable condition after an early morning shooting Tuesday in the 9th Ward.
Shortly before 1 a.m., 5th District police responded to a call of "male down" near the corner of Marais and Pauline streets near the Industrial Canal, officer Sabrina Richardson said.
Officers found one man with a gunshot wound in his chest and another with a gunshot wound in his buttocks, according to police.
