A few weeks ago, Bridgeport folks were all geared up to celebrate Mardi Gras with a giant fundraiser presented by BlackRock Rocks featuring a couple handfuls of local bands and spanning three venues. And then it snowed. A lot. Like, we're talking about historic amounts of snow here. The winter storm of the century. The event was canceled, but it's being made up this Saturday, and since it's no longer the season for Mardi Gras, it's called Pardi Gras. Some acts on the bill include the Primate Fiasco, Like Violet, Fungus Amungus, School of Rock, Nardy Boy, Dan Labich Trio, Darian Cunning, Cosmic Jibaros, Oobleck, Dr. Caterwaul's Cadre of Clairvoyant Claptraps, EKL, Fake Babies, Giorgio Fareira, Ports of Spain, Hot Chaos, Oh, Cassius!, King for a Day, Solistic, Pocket Hotties, Steve Detroy Trio, Graylight Campfire and Symphonic Bodega. So yeah, everyone's going to be there.
