The Blue Moon Saloon in downtown Lafayette has live music from Wednesday's to Saturday's, and sometimes on Sunday.

There is also an outdoor concert on Friday's in downtown Lafayette. It's a series called Downtown Alive, which you can find the info on the Lafayette tourism website.

There is a ton of music in Lafayette tonight and more tomorrow night. Every night (or almost), there is Cajun music at Randol's, Prejean's, and Pont-Breaux's. These are restaurants, the first two in Lafayette and the third in Breaux Bridge. Way out in the country (maybe more than 45 miles?) is DI's Restaurant, with live music on Thursday and weekend nights.

Friday :

in Scott at Cowboy's: Geno Delafosse. (fabulous zydeco).

in Opelousas: Goldman Thibodeaux & The Lawtell Playboys (LA Creole) 6PM Opelousas Farmers Market.

in Henderson: Backwood Boyz (LA Cajun,Country) Whiskey River Landing, 1365 Henderson Levee Rd, Henderson.

I already mentioned Randol's; Sheryl Cormier will be there on Friday night--a special treat. Old school dance hall music. Very danceable music from a pioneering woman and her band.

And that's just the Cajun and Zydeco. More Cajun/Zydeco info (including the Zydeco brunch Saturday morning in Breaux Bridge) is here: http://www.arnb.org/louisiana.php.

Live music of all descriptions: www.theind.com/images/stories/grid.pdf. (The new version comes out every Wednesday.)

Downtown Alive (mentioned by Porelly) is Lil Wayne and Same Ole Two-Step.

One last question, which venue will give us the more authentic experience?
