Get your weekend rolling on a musical note in downtown Lafayette Friday. The tunes begin at noon at Parc Sans Souci when Les Freres Michot kick off the Fall 2012 Bach Lunch concert series. The Michot clan has become a Cajun music institution in Acadiana and have become the traditional Bach Lunch series openers. The music lasts an hour. Lunches — $5 for Lafayette Science Museum members, $6 general public — will be provided by Chris’ Po-boys and iMonelli on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 11:30 a.m.. Back Lunch is a bi-annual concert series that raises funds for the Lafayette Science Museum Foundation.
