So what that we are on the west coast! Does that mean we can’t celebrate Fat Tuesday? Apparently we certainly can! Mardi gras in the Gaslamp brought in some incredibly talented musical acts. There was something for everyone for the night from reggae, to cumbia, to rock; bands like Little Hurricane, Real to Rio, DJ Z-Trip, Sue Palmer & Her Motel Swing Orchestra and Ozomatli had the masqueraded crowds on their feet with excitement.
