The Mayan calendar is set to end Friday, Dec. 21, and to celebrate the once-in-an-eon happening of the galactic alignment several of Lafayette’s finest establishments are holding their own “End of the World” themed events.

The CloudHeavy Recording Collective is holding its own musical showcase with its End of the MoFo World Party at the Feed & Seed. Three of CloudHeavy’s member bands—The Cavemen, The Horsemen, and Reading—are set to perform along with local favorites Roman Discipline and Whom Do You Work For?

Other attractions include a booth for making memorable gif pictures of your final hours as well as a confession booth to declare your sins and receive an anointment just in case Christianity had it right and the Rapture hits. Doors open at 9 p.m. with admission at $10. For more details find the Feed & Seed on Facebook

The Blue Moon Saloon will also be holding its own End of the World-themed event with performances from the Mercy Brothers and special guests the Rayo Brothers staring at 10 p.m. with admission at $10. Visit for further details.

And in stark contrast to the aforementioned End Times celebrations, Grant Street Dancehall will be celebrating the holiday season when it welcomes Chubby Carrier as he hosts a free Christmas Jam concert with free gumbo. This non-smoking event features performances from Louisiana Houserockers and an all-star jam session with Jamie Begeron, Roddie Romero, Dustin Sonnier, Lil’ Buck Senegal, Keith Blair, Connie G,  Amanda Shaw and more. The free show and gumbo begin Friday evening at 7 p.m. Find more info at
