88Nine Radio Milwaukee Mardi Gras Party
With Milwaukee locked in its coldest, snowiest stretch of the season, Mardi Gras couldn’t feel any farther away, but that won’t stop 88Nine Radio Milwaukee from celebrating Fat Tuesday with this party. The station has rounded up two suitably festive bands for the event: The Right Now, a Chicago soul septet with a singer who channels the great Chaka Khan, and Extra Crispy Brass Band!, a Milwaukee ensemble versed in the sounds of New Orleans jazz. Come hungry: Tickets to the event include food from Maxie’s Southern Comfort.
