Lafayette, La. – The Spring 2015 Downtown Alive! (DTA!) season is kicking off March 20th with a new VIP experience and everyone’s favorite band, Cowboy Mouth. DTA! is the same free concert series, Acadiana has loved for over 30 years, but for the first time ever, there’s a way to receive the VIP treatment in an elevated tent with spectacular stage views. The tent also features comfy seats and tables, shorter lines, luxurious restrooms, complimentary food and exclusive drink booths. VIP passes are $10 each and available at www.downtownlafayette.org while supplies last! The VIP Experience is only available on March 20th featuring Cowboy Mouth and April 17th featuring Louisiana’s LeRoux.
Downtown Alive! is still free to music lovers of all ages, however, we’ve teamed up with some of your other favorite free music festivals, Festival International de Louisiane and Festivals Acadiens et Creoles to remind fans: “The music is free because of me!”, please support these free events and purchase on-site.
Cowboy Mouth is a one-of-a-kind New Orleans rock band. They are a high-energy rock band with their number being the audience. Cowboy Mouth’s focus on those in the crowd rather than those on stage will ensure you will have a good time. Cowboy Mouth lives to tour, playing 150+ shows a year with some of their friends including Hootie and the Bowfish, Barenaked Ladies, Sister Hazel and Better Then Ezra.
