Mardis Gras Party
Ever since Father Louis Beau Chapeau established the parish of Uptown in 1735, the crossroads of Lake and Hennepin has been a stage for revelry and celebration during Carnival and its joyous finale, Mardi Gras. After tonight, sobriety and reflection will be the order of the day from Urban Outfitters to Figlio, as the good citizenry ponder the sacrifice of Christ. But for now, let the good times roll and party with the mystic societies of local music, including the percussive fury of the Gay Witch Abortion Krewe, the dreamy circuit-bending bliss of the Order of the Beatrix*JAR, the robotronic chants and electro-sludge of the Unicorn Basement Society, and the primitive bass'n'bitching racket of Troupe Kitten Forever.
