Lafayette's own three-time Grammy-nominated monsters known as the Pine Leaf Boys play Downtown Alive tonight. Or should I say Downtown Alive!!! Jody Nederveld! over at DTA! loves those exclamation points! It’s the brand, baby. And so do I, because they’re fun! That’s the coffee talking. Back to business. One of Lafayette’s greatest up and coming assets, The Pine Leaf Boys are known for their own inimitable brand of organic roots music, mixing traditional Cajun with juré swing, old school dancehall, and old time roots magic.

See the Pine Leaf boys tonight, March 19 at Parc Sans Souci in downtown Lafayette.
