The mystic of Mardi Gras runs strong around the Galactic experience, take for example the fact that I bought and listened to a NOLA funk compilation featuring Chuck Carbo’s “Can I Be Your Squeeze” just hours before heading down to Tip’s – and lo and behold, at the exact moment I walk in to the full-on 4:30 a.m. freak out at Tip’s the next morning – they are covering the song. Coincidence? Probably. But coincidence is a big part of the magic that surrounds the whole Mardi Gras experience, and that’s what makes it all so special.
