Super Sunday

Today was Super Sunday, an annual Mardi Gras Indian gathering in the Central City neighborhood. Given that the new HBO show Treme is coming out in a few months, and will highlight and celebrate this culture, I wonder whether next year's Super Sunday will remain the same terrific event or whether the attention it is bound to get will somehow change it if hipsters fly in from New York and LA to see this amazing art and culture.

I wrote a little about Mardi Gras Indians a few years ago in The Nation
