Downtown Alive!

On the heels of the most successful, Downtown Alive! Year in our thirty-year history, Downtown Alive! is following up with one of the biggest schedules yet! We’re looking forward to an even bigger and better 2014 with:
An all-star lineup featuring: The Chee-Weez, Bonsoir, Catin, Lil’ Band O Gold, Beausoleil avec Michael Doucet, The Molly Ringwalds, Rockin’ Dopsie Jr. & the Zydeco Twisters and Chubby Carrier & the Bayou Swamp Band with Connie G. 
BandSwap featuring locals Bonsoir, Catin and Gasoline Lollipops from Fort Collins, Colorado for a double-headline show at DTA! and in Fort Collins.
Make it a UL Ragin Cajuns Home Game weekend starting with DTA! Friday and Gameday at Cajun Field Saturday: September 5 – DTA! – The Chee-Weez & September 6 – UL vs Louisiana Tech; October 4 – DTA! – The Molly Ringwalds & October 5 – UL vs Georgia State.
 “This Fall, DTA! is welcoming new bands like Bonsoir, Catin and bringing back favorites such as Chubby Carrier with Connie G and Rockin’ Dopsie, Jr. We also dipped into the DTA! archives and are bringing back names that have been missing from our posters for a few years now with Beausoleil Avec Michael Doucet and Lil’ Band O Gold. Even football fans just looking to have a good time before the game have something to enjoy at DTA! with The Chee-Weez and The Molly Ringwalds. We always work to provide a variety of performances to bring Acadiana a season with quality entertainers and a guaranteed good time every Friday,” said Kate Durio, Director of Marketing and Events.
