Prepping for Carnival

It's only about six weeks until Carnival - or Mardi Gras to you Francophiles - and Madison's samba band Pagee Go Go is working diligently to be ready to knock your socks off. Prior to their Carnival gig at the High Noon Saloon on Feb. 27th, they can be spotted THIS WEEKEND at the Majestic on Saturday night. Their rambunctious pagode music is fun and highly danceable. Local samba dancer Cody of Masamba Dance will be giving lessons. No excuses now!

In the spirit of full disclosure, I must admit that my lovely partner Reena is in the band. Often lurking in back holding down the bottom end on the tan tan, it seems she is prepping for a bit more drama in her costume this time around.

This is a test run of her makeup and headpiece. The only way to see for certain what the final result is will be to come see - and hear - Pagee Go Go on Saturday.

UPDATE: Oops, I lied. She will not be wearing the makeup this weekend. Go see them at the Majestic anyway, then go to Carnival at the High Noon Saloon for all the feathers and frippery!
