Hungry for Mardi Gras?
Have you ever had King Cake for breakfast?
Or a crawfish picnic in somebody's front yard that you didn't really know?
Have you ever gotten emotional over a coconut with a painted face?
If the answer is yes, then you are probably longing for Louisiana right about now.
(And if the answer is no, then it's about time you got on the band wagon.)
Here's one way to get your Mardi Gras fever on: support up and coming DC musicians at Hungry For Music's Louisiana Dance Party at the Torpedo Factory this Friday night with DC's own Squeeze Bayou and the Junkyard Saints. Dance instruction will be provided by rhythm lovers Ben Pagac and Debbie Shaw-plus King Cake and beads for all.
Hungry for Music is all about giving musical chances away to those in need so if you have a guitar catching dust under a bed or a horn propping open a door, bring them along and put them to better use.
$15 in advance and $20 at door.
Say yes to art and let the good times roulez.
