This year’s Mardi Gras lineup is very, well, erratic to say the least. It’s hard to tell which audience they are going for, are they going for the younger crowd with artists like Akon and Flo Rida, or they going for the older crowd? Seems to me that they are going for the best mix they can get, but you have to wonder what kind of crowds will be pulled in for the rest of the event with artists like Beach Boys, Chicago and Sheryl Crow. At any rate, 3 Doors Down will be performing this weekend.
