Soundgarden Making Only Festival Stop of 2011 at Voodoo

One of the most beautiful things about the annual Voodoo Experience – which takes over New Orleans’ City Park each Halloween – is that with more than a decade of diverse programming choices, the festival has earned an inimitable reputation without having to carry the burden of the kind of overwrought traditions that turn every piece of news about the Jazz Fest, for example, into a full-on debate about the Current and Future State of Music®: Local Edition.

The main stages of Voodoo have hosted knock-out acts that range from Kiss and Ozzy Osburne to Eminem and Lil’ Wayne to Muse and My Morning Jacket; as such, all lineup announcements are free to be met with the unbridled excitement that should accompany any news of a nationally touring act making a stop in the Crescent City.  And the first shoe has dropped for Voodoo 2011:

The Voodoo Experience Presented by Stephen Rehage returns for its 13th year to City Park October 28-30, and Soundgarden will be a part of it. The show will be the Seattle-based rock band’s only festival appearance of the year.

There is certainly more good news to come, as the three-day festival has made a habit of not only drawing the biggest rock stars on the planet, but has recently revived an electronica tent that drew talent and crowds in 2010 that rivaled anything going on at the main stages.

  1. You should see my f*cking cookouts, man. When I was back in Seattle, I
    had the goddamn Spoonman from the Soundgarden videos coming to my sh*t.
    I’m talking 6 grills burning at all times. Tiki torches, 3 whole pigs,
    sh*tloads of macaroni and cheeses, baked potatoes, collard greens, a
    horse, f*cking Puerto Rican chicks showing their pussies and tits off
    everywhere. They were amazing.
