Mardi Gras is upon us and Austin, second to only New Orleans of course, is the place to be this weekend. Aside from all the alcohol, tourists and beads for boobies debauchery, Mardi Gras brings many great live music events to The Live Music Capital.
This year is no different as out friends at Knuckle Rumbler and Proper Entertainment have put together an all day live music event for the record books at Stubb’s on Mar. 5 with headliner and Daptone Records Recording artist, The Budos Band.
A ten member Afro-soul collective, The Budos Band are no stranger to Austin or Red River Noise as we saw them live at Mohawk last fall (read our review with photos here). Touring in support of their latest release, The Budos Band III, the group will be supported by many of Austin’s finest acts which includes Soul Track Mind, Bus Stop Stallions, DJ Chorizo Funk and many more. Visit the Knuckle Rumbler entry for the event here for complete line up and details.
The Budos Band are making their way to back to Austin for Mardi Gras on Mar. 5 at Stubb’s and we have two tickets to the show. We want to hook up one lucky Red River Noise reader with those tickets as our thanks for their continued support. It is the least we could do.
We’ll be giving away a pair of tickets this Friday afternoon, Mar. 4, on our Facebook page. All you have to do is click “LIKE” every time you see this post on our wall to enter your name in the drawing. This giveaway only applies to fans in Central Texas capable of making it to the show.
