That quintet of crazy pals known as the Bodacious Brothers were at it again! They held their first annual Bodacious Christmas Bash recently at Grant Street, and judging from the massive crowd that braved the rain and sleet to participate, it definitely will not be the last. However, this grand party was not just about rockin’ out to the awesome bands, including Sons of Voodoo, the Canes, and the Keith Blair All-stars; it was also about bringing some holiday spirit to the Lafayette community. Canned goods for St. Joseph Diner and Christmas gifts for Toys for Tots were collected at the door, and a massive amount of donations were collected in the process.
