Organizers for Downtown Alive! (DTA) announce the release of its Fall 2014 schedule, one they hope will outdo last season's heralded music lineup.
DTA, coming off of what its organizers describe as its "most successful, Downtown Alive! Year in our thirty-year history," has big plans:
· 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.
