Walk the Second Line with Element

Mulvaney’s B&L, 4:30pm, no cover

Break out your beads, Mardi Gras is back. It’s time to get fat on a Tuesday with Element Brass Band. Did you know that Mardi Gras used to be a pagan celebration for spring and fertility? If there’s one thing the pagans knew how to do well, it’s party hard. Element Brass Band will parade as a traditional second line through the streets of Midtown starting at Mulvaney’s B&L and making its way to Kasbah, Easy on I and finally ending the night at Shady Lady for a no cover night of brass music. You probably shouldn’t flash for your beads this time around; the parade will be for all ages. But bring the feather boas that have been patiently waiting all year long for this day and march along to some traditional brass music on the day before Lent. 1215 19th St., torchclub.net.
