The lineup for this year's Downtown Alive fall season has been released.

Downtown Lafayette Unlimited says that in the interest of public safety and accordance with governmental guidelines, the organizers of Downtown Alive! are once again going virtual for the Fall 2020 season.

The 37th season of Downtown Alive! will be streamed online from Rock'n'Bowl de Lafayette and will take place on Friday nights, with streaming beginning at 6:00 pm.

Viewers can watch the virtual live performances by tuning in to the Downtown Alive! Facebook page

The season will kick off on Friday, September 18th, featuring Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble.

The season schedule includes the following performances:

  • Friday, September 25: DG & The Freetown Sound
  • Friday, October 2: TBD
  • Friday, October 16: Rusty Metoyer and the Zydeco Krush
  • Friday, October 23: Daiquiri Queens
  • Friday, October 30: Blue Monday Allstars

Downtown Alive! has been held, organizers say, for nearly 40 years.

Although 2020’s Spring and Fall seasons look different than those in the past, they are looking on the bright side of things and keeping the music alive.

“This Fall season is special to us because it gives Downtown Lafayette an opportunity to support local musicians who have been unable to perform as they usually would as of late,” said Anita Begnaud, CEO of Downtown Development Authority and Downtown Lafayette Unlimited. “Downtown Alive! is thrilled to partner with a Downtown business, Rock'n'Bowl® de Lafayette. They have made investments in production equipment and developed expertise in streaming that will allow us to take the success of our Spring “House Sessions” to another level. We will have the ability to stream across multiple pages to allow a wider audience to view the range of talent we have secured and enjoy the magic of DTA! from home."
