It's been a rainy whirlwind down in New Orleans — Josh Jackson and Patrick Jarenwattananon divided, then conquered the festival, sending back photos, reports and tape. So far this weekend Josh has been enthralled by both a little boy (the Spy Boy for the Comanche Hunter Mardi Gras Indians) and a youthful 98-year-old. Patrick found The Bounce Extravaganza and caught the festival's Saturday headliners: My Morning Jacket, Drake and Simon & Garfunkel.

And every night the two met up to exchange war stories and eat really really good food. You can download their recaps of Day 1 and Day 2. Check back soon for Day 3's roundup, their weekly Treme dissection — you know it's going to be hot, considering this tweet — and more.
