2/24 Hey! It’s Fat Tuesday! Where we drinkin’?!

Posted by novoscene on February 24, 2009

In the midst of all the running around it somehow slipped my mind that today was Fat Tuesday, WTF was I thinking? Who knows.  The important question, good people, is-where are we drinking?

Here’s a quick roundup of promising  options. Now who’s got the 1st round?


East Meets West Mardi Gras at Ozumo

Mardi Gras with the Mark St. Mary Louisiana Blues & Zydeco Band

PST feat. Waajeed & Jennifer Johns

Who knows if this is an official Fat Tuesday party, but it’s Wajeed, so it really doesn’t matter. Catch a special set by Platinum Pied Pipers stalwart and J-Dilla prodigy. Plus Oakland’s Jennifer johns opens. Nu soul and beats for that ass.

Gomorran Social Aid and Pleasure Club

Nobody parties like a Gomorran. Seriously. This band of hobo, Motown vaudeville freaks have a habit of burning up a dancefloor then burning down the house. And Damon and the Heathens is opening? Better get here before the cops do.
