Ace Spade and the Whores.
JIM MIZE / ACE SPADE AND THE WHORES OF BABYLON10 p.m., White Water Tavern. Donations.
There are eight jillion different things doing tonight for Fat Tuesday. There's a big bar crawl down in the River Market and music all over the city. But if I don't eat myself sick on king cake on Tuesday, I'm going to White Water. No place is more endearingly weird on holidays. There's bound to be lots of beads flying and a half a dozen stupid-drunk folks hollerin' about some such. And great music! If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, Jim Mize
is the finest songwriter currently working in Arkansas. And Ace Spade and the Whores
might be the best showmen (and women). Their punkabilly garage-rock is endlessly fun and perfect for Mardi Gras decadence.
