Liberty Theater Mardi Gras Show, Feb. 6, 2016
The 2016 Liberty Theater Mardi Gras Show on Feb. 6 featured the band Les Ferrailles led by Ryan Brunet along with a visit by the Basile Mardi Gras. (“Ferrailles” means brass knuckles as in the line from the song “Je m’endors” in which the people of Crowley are described as “toujours dans chemin à chercher à malfaire, avec la jog au plombeau et la ferraille à la poche.” The Mardi Gras danced, begged, and generally carried on with wild abandon.
