Lafayette, LA – Although Downtown Alive! had a little technical trouble in paradise and didn’t get to kick off our DTA! Season last Friday as planned, we are coming in hot this week! This Friday, September 25th, DG & The Freetown Sound take their funky soul stylings to the digital stage. The 37th season of Downtown Alive! is presented by Evangeline Maid and will be streamed online from Acadiana Center for the Arts in the heart of Downtown Lafayette. DTA! will take place on Friday nights, with streaming beginning at 6 pm. Viewers can watch the virtual performances by tuning in to the Downtown Alive! Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/downtownlafayette. Other notable performances this season include a helping of Zydeco courtesy of Rusty Metoyer and the Zydeco Krush; a dash of down-home Cajun from the Daiquiri Queens; a Who's Who of Acadiana musicians with the Blue Monday Allstars; and a season wrap-up featuring Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble’s bluesy zydeco blend. “Thanks to our presenting sponsor, Evangeline Maid, we have an incredible opportunity to support talented local musicians through these virtual concerts,” said Anita Begnaud, CEO of Downtown Alive! Organizer, Downtown Lafayette Unlimited. “We are excited to join the
Acadiana community online every Friday night at 6 pm to dance away those long workweeks — and trust us, DG & The Freetown Sound is the perfect band to do just that!” Downtown Alive! has provided family-friendly entertainment, along with a dash of culture, for nearly 40 years. Although 2020’s Spring and Fall seasons look different from those in the past, organizers are looking on the bright side of things and excited to support local musicians and provide family-friendly entertainment to the community. Downtown Alive! would not be possible without the support of its sponsors, especially Fall 2020 presenting sponsor Evangeline Maid, venue host Acadiana Center for the Arts, videography by Better Boot Productions, and Paul Kieu Photography. Companies and organizations like

Lafayette Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Smokefree Music Cities, LUS Fiber, M.I. Brary, Victor Ashy, CGI, Professional Outsource Services, Rock'n'Bowl® de Lafayette, Lowry’s Printing, Element, Potty Girl, Townsquare Media, Delta Media, and Festival International de Louisiana have also come together to produce this season of Downtown Alive! Tune in to the Downtown Alive! Facebook page for your virtual viewing parties every Friday. During the week of Festival Acadien, there will be no DTA! show as we encourage the
community to support the festival by tuning in to their fantastic music lineup.
