Perry Mason’s Electronic Speedo – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans

Remember phone books Jessie Haynes has a couple of cocktails and next thing you know she s transported back to the 1950 s. Jessie escaped the clutches of practicing law because it wasn t as much fun as Perry Mason even though Perry Mason whatever his real name is had long since quit acting at being a lawyer before Jessie quit art history to misguidedly go to law school. Christian Turner and Christian Thompson met in school in 2012. In high school art class. This is their very first media interview on the cusp of what might be their big break a gig at Buku Fest. The Christians have an electronic music project by which they are known collectively as Chris Cross. Although they re 19 and 20 respectively they also have solo music careers. And, by the way the come from Geismar, Louisiana. Remember you heard it here first. Gant Laborde s father was a nominal psychic. That is to say he was a predictor of names. He reportedly foresaw the runaway popularity of the name “Heather” and thought he was onto the next trend with “Gant.” However, the only other Gant that Gant Laborde has met is a label on a European clothing line. He has a brother with a perfectly placed “r” in “Eric”. Gant and Eric are the driving forces behind the infamous BLT Mardi Gras Ball. BLT in this case is Boxers, Lingerie and Togas. Dust off your speedo and get ready to party. All the photos on this page were taken at Wayfare by Douglas Engel.
