Our set is at 6pm, and we’re sharing the stage with @zydecoboss & @royalteeth Fun Fact! On November 20, 1980, a Texaco oil rig accidentally drilled into the Diamond Crystal Salt Company salt mine under Lake Peigneur, near New Iberia, Louisiana. Because of an incorrect or misinterpreted coordinate reference system (the drillers thought the coordinates were in the Universal Transverse Mercator coordinate system when they were in transverse Mercator projection) the 14-inch (36 cm) drill bit entered the mine, starting a chain of events which turned the lake from freshwater to salt water, with a deep hole. It is difficult to determine what occurred, as all evidence was destro or washed away in the ensuing maelstrom. One explanation is that a miscalculation by Texaco about their location resulted in the drill puncturing the roof of the third level of the mine. This created an opening in the bottom of the lake. The lake then drained into the hole, expanding the size of that hole as the soil and salt were washed into the mine by the rushing water, filling the enormous caverns left by the removal of salt over the years. The resultant whirlpool sucked in the drilling platform, eleven barges, many trees and 65 acres (260,000 m2) of the surrounding terrain. So much water drained into those caverns that the flow of the Delcambre Canal that usually empties the lake into Vermilion Bay was reversed, making the canal a temporary inlet. This backflow created, for a few days, the tallest waterfall ever in the state of Louisiana, at 164 feet (50 m), as the lake refilled with salt water from the Delcambre Canal and Vermilion Bay. The water downflowing into the mine caverns displaced air which erupted as compressed air and then later as 400-foot (120 m) geysers up through the mineshafts. Although there were no injuries and no human lives lost, three dogs were reported killed. All 55 employees in the mine at the time of the accident were able to escape thanks to well-planned and rehearsed evacuation drills, while the staff of the drilling rig fled the platform before it was sucked down into the new depths of the lake, and Leonce Viator, Jr. (a local fisherman) was able to drive his small boat to the s and get out. Our great-great-grandma, May Mazyck, in Shreveport LA, taught herself piano accordion. She pla organ and whistled for the silent films, and the story goes that rats crawled between her feet as she pla the b pedals, but she kept playing for the people #rambler #inspiration Announcing #LouisMichot residency at #JohnZorn venue #TheStone Avenue C, East Village, New York May 31-June 5, feat. #lostbayouramblers #lesfreresmichot #poguetry #spiderstacy #stringnoise #beastsofthesouthernwild #zacksmith #charleliecouture and a whole boat-load of #louisiana musicians for 12 different concerts over 6 days.
