As they’ve done every year for nearly a decade, popular Cajun band Les Freres Michot will kick of the spring Bach Lunch concert series in Parc Sans Souci on Friday.
Held at noon, the Lafayette Science Museum Foundation’s biannual Bach Lunch concert series brings, like its evening counterpart Downtown Alive!, the best local and traveling bands representing a wide range of styles. Bach Lunch raises cash for the museum by selling box lunches donated by local restaurants.
Here’s the rest of the spring 2013 schedule:
March 15: Bonsoir, Catin (Bailey’s Seafood & Grill, Roly Poly and Zea’s Rotisserie & Grill)
March 22: The Viatones (Abacus Restaurant & Catering, Poupart’s Bakery and Tsunami Sushi)
March 29: Horace Trahan & the Ossun Express (Ema’s Café, Deano’s and O’Charley’s Restaurant)
April 5: The Revelers (Agave Cantina, Chris’ Po-Boys and Great Harvest Bread Co.)
