Weekend Round-Up: Mardi Gras Style



So. Mardi Gras was this week. Crazy, right? What a bunch of freaks! All right. That's all I've got.

As far as local happenings go, rock-wise, this weekend certainly isn't the strongest we've seen in ages, but it's not so bad. There are options. Tonight, for instance, you've got Tonie Joy and his Slow Bull at Springwater, a George Harrison trib at Mercy, Majestico with Bad Cop and Fly Golden Eagle at 12th & Porter, the Kidsmeal Review. Oh, and Journey at TPAC. Tomorrow night you're looking at Useless Eaters with Fancytramp and King Karl at Springwater, Diarrhea Planet with Reid Magette and more at an East Side house party, The Boom Bap at The 5 Spot, Loss at The End and more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by Adam "Beads please!" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a festive weekend.
