Carnival season never ends on Ash Wednesday on Global Beat – the dance party continues with New Orleans Brass sounds, and Trinidad-Tobago Soca Pan music and a taste of Brasil. Lots more as well – including some Nina Simone for her birthday.
MARDIGRAS in the Land of the Round Haircut with FATSDOMINO, CLARENCE ‘BONTON’ GARLOW, and BOBBYCHARLES; But First a British Invasion-style BIRTHDAY-IN-BLUE for the ‘Quiet Beatle’ GEORGEHARRISON and the Ill-Fated BRIANJONES of the ROLLINGSTONES.
Thanks to Karl Smelker of KFAI’s Louisiana Rhythms for co-hosting with me today. We did an entire show of Louisiana-based music as we prepare for Fat Tuesday and our Mardi Gras Party at the Eagles Club. We hope to see you there. The music starts at 7:00….the Eagles is located at 25th Ave. and 25th St. in Minneapolis.
