Wake up, Jim! ... whoa ... where have I been? Guess it's time to get out of bed, pull on my socks and finally get to a blog post about some musical happenings.
Before I get to a post about this weekend, and one about some fantastic shows coming at the Alberta Rose, the Aladdin, and the soon to be open Revolution Hall ... you don't want to miss the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus' 5th Annual Mardi Gras Ball on February 14th! (yes, on Valentine's Day)
This is one killer party. I might be a bit biased as I'm one of the Krewe's founding members, but for the past four years people have been raving about our annual celebration of Carnival season. It is the most authentic, traditional, Mardi Gras experience you'll find in Portland.
And this year we are thrilled to have Charmaine Neville be part of the music. What? A respected New Orleans musician leaving New Orleans at Mardi Gras time to play a ball in Portland? Yep. She knows where the party's at!
So get your tickets! Early bird pricing ($25) ends Saturday ... tickets will be $30 beginning on Sunday ... and $35 at the door.
Hope to see you at 2015 Mardi Grad Ball!
