One year ago today, Katrina and the Waves brought their cheery pop sensibilities to New Orleans.
The band, of "Walkin' On Sunshine" fame, played to a packed house at the Superdome.
They were joined on stage by dozens of luters, bringing a medieval sound to some of their tunes.
Their manager, a Mr. Brownie, was pronounced by no less a personage than beer magnate Anheuser Busch to be "doin' a heckuva job."
New Orleans mayor and former Steely Dan member Donald Fagen arranged bus transportation for the thousands of fans to get to and from the concert.
Some concert-goers had to be turned away, so they climbed up onto their rooftops in hopes of getting a free glimpse of the show, which was odd because the Superdome is sealed up like a tomb.
After the New Orleans show, Katrina and crew went on to hit other cities on the Gulf Coast.
It's now a year later and people are still talking about the spectacle.
