It’s going to be a chilly one Friday evening at Parc Sans Souci as the spring 2013 Downtown Alive! concert series rolls on after a brief Festival International hiatus. Look at it this way: This is more than likely our last cool weather until next October. Let us not take it for granted!

Rue Boogaloo is a trio comprising guitarist Marty Christiansen, bassist Lee Allen Zeno and drummer Frank Kincel, and these dudes bring the bluesy funk big time. Offbeat Magazine characterized the group as “smack dab in the middle of where Jimmy Reed, R.L. Burnside and the meters would all crash and smash.”

Concession sales begin at 5:30 p.m.; the music cranks up a half hour later. Downtown Alive! is a free event and concessions help keep it that way, so please leave the ice chests, pets, political nits and poor social graces at home.
