Tuesday was Mardi Gras, but on this third day of Lent, the celebrations go on for traveling New Orleans party starters like formidable funk aggregation Galactic and new school NOLA brass band the Soul Rebels.

The latter open for the former (who are pictured to the left) at Union Transfer tonight, and will undoubtedly play together, as they do in the 2007 video below of "From The Corner To The Block," with gold-toothed Crescent City rapper Juvenile. Galactic's just-out Carnivale Electros follows the band's catholic taste from Louisiana to Rio de Janeiro, with contributions from New Orleanians like Mystikal and Big Chief Juan Pardo and Brazilians such as Carlinhos Brown and Moyseis Marques. The Soul Rebels' latest ecumenical update on the traditional brass band sound is called Unlock Your Mind; watch a mini-documentary about the band here.
