Not content with bringing Creole to the good citizens of Melbourne, food truck Gumbo Kitchen’s now serving it up to the dead.
To celebrate Fat Tuesday (a la Mardi Gras), that bacchanalian beast of holiday that marks the climax of carnivale, the tweeting truck is pulling up stumps at Melbourne General Cemetery tonight, along with some soulful spirits.
From 5pm The Lowdown Street Orchestra and Jules Boult will be playing playing free sets of funk before kicking off a ‘second line’, where everyone’s invited to dance congo-line style and add a little colour to the hallowed lawns.
There’s be flavour too, with Gumbo Kitchen churning out their New Orleans grits and fried shrimp po-boys like mo-fos.
BYO beer and ouija board.
