DIKKI DU & THE ZYDECO KREWE
9 p.m. Stickyz. $5.
If you're looking for a night to cut loose, have a drink or three or four and dance around with complete abandon like some kinda gol-durn fool, this right here should do quite nicely. Dikki Du is the stage name of Troy Carrier, who grew up in the tiny South Louisiana town of Lawtell (say it like "lot-tell").
Carrier has a great voice and is a maestro on the accordion. Backing him up is The Zydeco Krewe, an ace group that includes his son, drummer Troy Carrier Jr. The group's tight playing anchors the whole thing, though they're never shy about stretching it all the way out like sticky sonic taffy.
In terms of pure and utterly unselfconscious fun, this 18-and-older show will be hard to top and at a mere five bones, it'll be a hell of a bargain as well.
Thanks for posting this! I was sick and couldn't attend.
