Tonight in Rock: Mardi Gras!

Usually Tuesday nights are slow for music in this town. Not tonight -- the spirit of Super Tuesday and democracy must have rung clear to bookers. Of course, LAist is having a party too, starting at 7:00 p.m. at Seven Grand. Choices, choices.
If there's a show you do tonight, Falling James at LA Weekly highly recommends celebrating the NOLA holiday over at Mr. T's Bowl: "There's no critical ambivalence regarding tonight's lineup, which boasts some of the hardest, heaviest and most versatile musicians from the local punk, funk and free-jazz scenes."
