Well, if you were hoping to get out and cut the proverbial rug at Downtown Alive!, you're out of luck today.

Downtown Lafayette Unlimited, who puts on DTA!, has decided to pull the plug on the show tonight due to the threat of severe weather.

There is good news though. They have decided to reschedule the event.

So, mark your calendars for Friday, May 5, 2023, at Parc International, for the rescheduled DTA! featuring Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas along with Lil Nate & the Zydeco Big Timers. (Yes, that makes it a Cinco de Mayo party!)

There is also another DTA! happening next Friday, March 31st with the Four Horses Band + Donnie Broussard & the Louisiana Stars playing the Parc Sans Souci stage.
