Today: Uptown Theater Mardi Gras Wilding, ‘Carnivale du Soul’ Saturday

Get the jump on Fat Tueday this weekend at the Uptown

The 2012 Carnivàle du Soul featuring the band Hearts of Darkness goes down Saturday night at the Uptown Theater at 3700 Broadway.

"It’ll be a Mardi Gras event with Hearts of Darkness, the band Goodfoot and there’ll be DJs as well," says the Uptown’s Fred Cannon. "The doors are at 8 p.m. and the show starts at  9 p.m. and goes until 1 a.m."

Wanna save some money – like a lot of money?

Skip the high dollar service and "convenience" charges at Ticketmaster and buy your ducats direct at the Uptown for $15 in advance ($20 at the door) or $25 for VIP.

"VIP gets you in an hour early and you get to meet the bands in a private reception," Cannon says. "And you get to download the new single by Hearts of Darkness and Goodfoot. And you get Mardi Gras beads."

Meaning, there’ll be New Orleans style beads-for-flashing going down?

"I don’t know about that," Cannon says. "All I know is it has a Mardi Gras theme to it."

As for just how wild it may be, "You’ll think you’re in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina," jokes Uptown head Larry Sells. "You’ll be having fun and terrorized at the same time."

Incidentally, Ticketmaster prices – with those lovely service charges we all enjoy – start at $21.15 and $32.65 for VIP. Nuff said?

    Yeah, I should get a sense of humor. I should go down to the Uptown and get terrorized. Maybe it will be as fun as Katrina was the first time, when I saw my friends’ houses looted and terrorized and destroyed by rising flood waters- with my school flooded and unusable and the rest of the country doing nothing. Perhaps my buddy that was found dead in his Mid-City shotgun house attic will be there…he was just playin dead the whole time!

    It does take a special kind of buttplug to capitalize on New Orleans with the theme, then be cheap and not book any bands from New Orleans, then make jokes about a disaster that ruined peoples’ lives. Larry Sells, you are that buttplug! Congrats! COME ON DOWN AND GET YOUR BEADS
