Toast of New Orleans

The music of New Orleans was heard around campus as members of the Wild Magnolias (in costume) paraded across campus, Mardi-Gras style, with members of the Stooges Brass Band. Both groups also performed Sunday at Kresge Auditorium, as part of MIT's Fall Festival "Bayou Bash" benefiting victims of Hurricane Katrina.
