The football season opener is tomorrow, and the whole city is being overcome by Saints fever again. The fandom is so all-consuming that, from what I read, school will be getting out early in time for pre-game festivities to avoid all the traffic and insanity. I have mixed feelings about all the serious stuff of life going on hold for sport–especially in a city with so many problems, but far be it from me to rain on the parade.
Well, the pre-pre-game festivities this evening sound super-fun to me. The Saints Pep Rally starts at Molly’s at the Market at 7pm. Then, at 9pm, there is a march over to One-Eyed Jacks. The dance party starts at 9:30. With music by DJ Matty and DJBunny (of Mod Dance Party) and the Storyville Stompers. Also performances by Fleur De Tease, Camel Toe Lady Steppers, and Rouxlala, also a special appearance by RayBot. There is also no cover, and they will be raffling off some Saints tickets.
