Trop rock maestro and die-hard Saints fan Jimmy Buffett appeared at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival costumed as a sight-impaired NFL referee, satirizing the NFC championship game officiating gaffe that notoriously robbed the Who Dat Nation of a Super Bowl appearance. Stripped of the zebra stripes by a pair of Saintsations, Buffett serenaded the Acura Stage audience with a stream of his dreamy Caribbean story songs.



Buffett’s lyrics are as penetrating as anything Paul Simon ever penned, minus the angst. The most existential circumstance Buffett describes is the misplacement of a salt shaker and the slight ennui that comes with realizing paradise on earth can’t last forever. He is the hero of seaside hedonism and, on Sunday (May 5), the Fair Grounds environment rose up to meet his aesthetic. Wispy clouds, seagulls, beach balls and illicit smoke wafted through the glorious spring air.

Not funny. I'm still pissed. Almost as bad as a Katrina joke.
