After making his comeback a few weeks ago, Lafayette singer-songwriter Scott Alan Scott has been holding it steady with regular gigs at both Bisbano’s Cellar and the Collage Café. This week, Stagg gives The Independent Weekly his Top 5 albums of all time for out Tuesday Top List. Always outspoken, Scott had a few particulars he needed stating before he could launch into his Top 5. "Ok, here's the deal with the Top 5 thing.
