viatonesFriday’s Bach Lunch concert will remind music fans of a bygone era when Lafayette rockers The Viatones take the stage at noon. The band performs original music and some covers, but even the originals will remind you of the Kinks, the Beatles and the Stones — solid, jangly electric rock with catchy hooks.

Bach Lunch begins at noon at Parc Sans Souci. Lunches — $6 for general public, $5 for Lafayette Science Museum members — will be provided by Bailey’s Seafood & Grill, Roly Poly and Zea’s Rotisserie & Grill.

Bach Lunch is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and to mark the occasion the Lafayette Science Museum Foundation will be raffling off a piece of artwork by popular local artist Kelly Guidry. “Musique” is a mixed media sculpture designed to hang on a wall. Tickets for the raffle are $5 apiece and can be purchased at the Lafayette Science Museum as well as at both Bach Lunch and Downtown Alive! concerts during March and April. The winner will be announced at the April 26 Bach Lunch. For details, call (337) 291-5544.
