If you’re looking for music to compliment your Halloween experience, there’s plenty to choose from. Accordion queen Sheryl Cormier will provide some classic Cajun sounds at the Hideaway while classic rock cover band La Roxx will take over the new Grouse Room located downtown. The Blue Moon and Magnolia Shed Series are teaming up to present an open mic jam along with some indie and punk rock from the likes of OTC, the Dames, and more. 


There’s more to catch this week leading up to the scariest night of the year in the Hub City. Café Vermilionville will continue their fall concert series with Daniel Coolik’s Boma Bango. The tribute to Congolese pop will perform on Wednesday evening in the courtyard of the beloved Lafayette restaurant. Downtown Alive is set to stream a concert by the Blue Monday Allstars featuring the top names in local blues and r&b on Friday. That same night, Texas troubadour, and part time Acadiana resident, Johnny Nicolas will celebrate the release of his new album, Mistaken Identity, with Grammy winning conjunto preservationists Los Texmaniacs at the Hideaway. 


For this edition of Lafayette Weekly, I’m featuring music by many of the artists performing this week as well as some local Halloween themed recordings. You’ll hear Pine Leaf Boys’ cover of Paul Daigle’s “Werewolf Two Step,” Rufus Jagneaux’s recently rereleased take on “Haunted House,” and “Happy Halloween” from the late Bobby Charles. C.C. Adcock’s “Bleed 2 Feed,” “The Ghost” by the Amazing Nuns, and Johnny Nicholas’s brand new “Mule and the  Devil” are also included along side other spooky South Louisiana sounds by artists like fiddle legend Harry Choates and Dr. John.
