Most people's associations with New Orleans and the Bayou are Cajun and Creole cultures; Mardi Gras and Voodoo. But there are lesser-known subcultures that have been alive (or dead, in the case of vampires!) for just as long. New Orleans and the Bayou are a steaming melting pot of French, Spanish and African cultures. The tragedy of Katrina was a blow to every aspect of this diversity, and Stuart wants to shine a light on some of the subcultures that don't get attention. Another heart of French Louisiana beats in Acadiana, the region of Southern Louisiana just west of New Orleans. Descended from French Canadians expelled by the British, the Acadians comprise one of the friendliest cultures in the South. They take in visitors like family. Perfect for a Broke-Ass! Hanging out with someone like Marc Broussard, 20-something singer/songwriter from Lafayette, Stuart will catch his own crawfish and share drinks with the locals at a big crawfish boil after a tour of the cypress swamps. He'll get a chance to dance to the regional music, someplace like Cajun Jam night at the Blue Moon Saloon and Guesthouse in Lafayette. Back in New Orleans, Stuart will get to indulge his love of vampires and all things goth, ditching the crew to drink in a dungeon bar and waiting up in one of New Orleans' characteristic cemeteries for creatures of the night to emerge. Finally, Stuart will meet YBB's who are reinventing New Orleans rap: like Freedia and Katey Red, "Sissy Bounce" hip hop artists who PACK clubs full of crowds (mostly women) getting their freak ON!
