If you’ve ever had the ahnvie to stuff a corncob pipe with bagasse and smoke it in a hail storm wearing a seersucker suit, get thee to Parc Sans Souci Friday night for Downtown Alive! featuring the Hub City’s own Sassafras Jubilee, an Americana-roots combo concocted out of the strum and twang of fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, upright bass and drums.  

Formed just last fall, the quartet has been burning its way through the Lafayette music scene with its infectious blend of original music inspired by the jug bands of yore and its heady interpretations of classic country, pop and the American Song Book, melded into a swinging, roots-rocking melange of devil-may-care cool. You’ll hear everything from Hank Williams standards to offbeat selections from the Beatles catalogue, all delivered with the (ir)reverent panache that has come to define these handsome strangers.

Concession sales begin at 5:30 p.m.; Sassafras Jubilee will be swingin’ it from 6-8:30. This weekly concert series is free and concession sales help keep it that way so please leave the ice chests at home.
