The Voodoo Music Festival in New Orleans announced some more of the line up, good start. I am 50/50 on this one but will more than likely go from the website:

Wu-Tang Clan, The Flaming Lips, My Chemical Romance, Social Distortion, Kings of Leon, Ozomatli, Secret Machines, Brazilian Girls, Ferry Corsten, Broken Social Scene, Drive-By Truckers, Blue October, Jack’s Mannequin, Yerba Buena and The Rentals are the latest performers to join the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Duran Duran. Stay tuned for news about additional acts to be added in the coming months, including a special Louisiana element featuring and honoring the music of the region.

A certain british weekly music pimp has a new whore, what do you think? The Arctic I mean The Kooks aren't all bad I guess....

The Mars Volta enlist Jeff Jordan to do the artwork for their next album.
