The Big Boys (pictured) kicked off a weekend of Mardis Gras festivities at Farmers Market LA at the Grove. Nothing crazy was in effect early -- but the bands and beads carry on through 9:30 tonight. Tomorrow from 12-8 the following bands perform: San Fernando Valley Banjo Band, 2nd Line Saviour’s Parade Band, Lisa Haley & The Zydekats, Eddie Baytos & Nervis Brothers (schedule).

Plus, the jambalaya at Gumbo Pot is damn tasty.
