DIKKI DU AND THE ZYDECO KREWE
9:30 p.m., White Water Tavern. $7.

How's this for high praise? In almost three years running White Water, Matt White says he's never seen it live-r than when Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe get to cranking. Representing Latwell, La., Dikki Du (“most people don't but Dikki Du”) comes from a musical family. His father, who owned a club, steeped his children in the culture of zydeco, that bizarre mix of influences only America could produce — French Canadian (the songs), European (the accordion and violin), Afro-Caribbean (the beat), R&B (the funk), Louisiana Cajun (the style). For almost a decade, Dikki Du and his Krewe — all together, that's five pieces, including an accordion, bass, drums, guitar and scrub board — have toured behind that tradition, mixing in a fair amount of funk to keep the dance floor crowded. Sounds like the perfect antidote to winter.
