Perhaps the most popular modern accordionist outside of Weird Al Yankovich, Stanley Dural Jr. (better known to fans, of course, as Buckwheat Zydeco), continues to earn good will for his cheerful funk and blues records. Most recently, in a collaboration made in music-geek heaven, the smiling icon teamed up with members of Yo La Tengo for a pair of tracks on the Bob Dylan bio-pic soundtrack I’m Not There. Tonight he plays a free 8 p.m. mardi gras show at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino.
