Unless you're zip code denotes you living under a rock, you've noticed it's Festival International this weekend. The great news is that when Festival comes around great bands take the stage at clubs and bars across the city after that night's Festival performances.
A few highlights for tonight's after-Fest pleasures are:
Feed 'n' Seed — Tonight downtown Lafayette's newest live music venue features performers that couldn't be more diametrically opposed. First it's the Mercy Brothers and Brother Dege with a show starting at 8 p.m. bringing that so-good-it-hurts soulful Southern noise. Beginning at midnight, however, is a dubstep party to end them all with poi dancers and hula hoopers performing and catered noshes for the hungry crowd. If you don't know what dubstep is then you probably don't like it.
Wild Salmon — This honky tonk off the beaten path has Louisiana foot-stompers Bas Clas tonight starting around 9 p.m. tonight. The Wild Salmon is off of Foreman and Dulles so call a cab and buckle in for a great show.
Blue Moon Saloon — Tonight has its Rhythm & Roots series with Lafayette's own FIGHTS and the Canadian band Radio Radio. Unlike dubstep, if you haven't yet heard FIGHTS it's your new favorite band and you just don't know it yet.
Artmosphere — Brass Bed and the Amazing Nuns to the stage starting around 9:30 p.m. tonight. This is the Nuns first show in two years and Brass Bed have been steadily touring and making a name for themselves.

NOV 20 Politico reports here that Bobby Jindal won't be kept out of the presidential race by anyone else's candidacy. (If he's running, which he's not, 'cause he's not done prayin' on it) So he's not interested in who is running, or what the polls say, or how much money he's got? K.
NOV 20 This week, Jim Brown is blogging about the big Keystone vote, and the sudden urgency with which some politicians have attacked the issue. Why is everybody all on fire now? Jim wants to know why they didn't care before the election.
NOV 20 NOLA Defender's Tiny Daiquiri has a little fun with Bobby Jindal's Meet the Press appearance in this post. Bobby is still prayin' on whether or not he'll run for the job he's been running for over the past three years, Tiny says.
NOV 20 In light of the recent inspector general's report about NOLA police detectives' extreme incompetence in investigating sex crimes, columnist Stephanie Grace is remembering another bad time in NOLA police history. Unfortunately, it seems like that's all there is to remember - bad times.
NOV 20 Columnist Jarvis DeBerry is writing about a recent discussion about gun violence at the Public Health Association meeting. The discussion focused on data, and the shortage of it, since gun lobbies block any meaningful public research on the subject of gun violence. Do we need the numbers to stop the deaths?
NOV 19 Jason Brad Berry, who blogs on American Zombie, has been scarce lately, but he's back with this lengthy, meaty post about the latest in the BP claims process mess. It's not a big surprise, but a lot of what he has to report is stinky, stinky, stinky. Stinky.
NOV 19 The former mayor of Sorrento, arrested last month on child pornography charges, didn't get the answer he wanted from a federal judge, the Advocate reports here. Wilson Longanecker Jr. wanted his $1 million bail reduced, and after hearing details of his arrest, the judge declined.
