Andre Thierry and Zydeco Magic

Editorial Review

For real Cajun dance music, it doesn't get much better than accordionist Andre Thierry, whose band blasts out bluesy boogies with an irresistible party groove. They appear at Glen Echo tonight as part of Dancing by the Bayou's all-ages Mardi Gras party. The $15 cover includes an introductory zydeco dance lesson, king cake and beads. Doors open at 7:30 for the dance lesson, and the live music runs from 8 to 11.
