Fat Tuesday: funk and crawfish at Crosstown Station

There's a small, devoted faction of Kansas Citians that take this whole Mardi Gras business pretty damn seriously. (Don't believe us? Check this slideshow.) We're guessing that they're going to take Crosstown Station's 2nd annual Fat Tuesday crawfish boil pretty damn seriously, too -- at least, seriously enough to fly in the little lobsters straight from N'Awlins.

It's only $5 for a hot plates of fresh crawfish flown in from New Orleans, Louisiana. (Crayfish? Crawdads?) Musically speaking, Fuzz Nasty & The MGD's will bring the funk by doing a special Meters Tribute set.

The show is tonight at Crosstown Station. It's $7 to get in. Click here for tickets.

Here's the Meters playing "Cissy Strut" in 1993.
