Because of the bad weather in Texas this show's been cancelled.

CHUBBY CARRIER AND THE BAYOU SWAMP

9:30 p.m., White Water Tavern. $10.

Fact: there's never been a shortage of bad Zydeco music. But, unlike nearly every other genre, even bad Zydeco music is fun. So when there's the chance to see an infamously good Zydeco band, one whose particular brand of “swamp funk” is infamous for getting Cajuns on the floor, it's in your best interest to take it. Chubby Carrier, a legacy in a long line of creole zydeco legends, is bringing his band to White Water for Little Rock's weekend celebration of Mardi Gras. Live, their signature tune, “Who Stole the Hot Sauce,” involves one of the members liberally splashing Louisiana hot sauce in the mouths of audience members. I'm looking forward to what other hijinks Mr. Carrier has up his sleeve for “Ain't No Party Like a Chubby Party.”
