If It's Fat Tuesday, It Must Be Mardi Gras

"The green room is smoking and the plaza's burning down, throw my baby out the window, and let those joints burn down."


I've been staring out my Queens window for a few hours now, and not one parade has gone by, unless you count Mrs. Papadopoulas and her 4 chihuahuas. Oh to be in New Orleans.

Get in the mood. It'll be good for you.

Created by Gabe over at the now sadly defunct Second Line Social, please enjoy one helluva Mardi Gras mix. And if the spirit moves ya, send me some King Cake, throw some beads and dance your ass off.  Just be careful who you flash.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

God, Sal. This mix is not to be believed. Making me feel better, already!

Tried downloading twice. Songs are altogether in one zip. Can't pick and choose, bummer.

Sorry Anon, but it was created as one mix and I kinda like it that way.

Ah yes... wish I were in N'Awlin's tonight -- thanks for this excellently mixed substitute Sal!
