Episode 1 of Season 2 of Treme, the HBO television drama set in New Orleans three months after Katrina, will debut at SXSW this week.

On March 17, HBO will host the Treme party, a daytime event featuring performances from the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Pine Leaf Boys, Henry Butler and a special appearance from New Orleans’ Big Chief Monk Boudreaux.

‘Treme’ portrayed not only the heartache and suffering of a battered New Orleans trying to get back to normal but showcased the culture and music of the city.

Season One featured appearances from Elvis Costello, Alan Toussaint and Lloyd Price.

The show starred Steve Zahn, John Goodman and Khandi Alexander and showed the world how the damage from Katrina continued on into the culture of the city.

Violinist Lucia Micarelli played an amazing role in the story of Season One as the busker Annie. She has toured with Chris Botti, Jethro Tull and Josh Groban.

Episode One of the new season will play during the SXSW HBO party in The Ghost Room on Austin’s 4th St.

A second line will weave from the venue to 6th Street and back to The Ghost Room from midday.
