Get ready for Louisiana’s Lost Bayou Ramblers to cause some serious stomping at the Sunset this Thursday, August 24th. The Cajun band will, I am certain, perform song new songs from their ninth release, Kalenda. Kalenda, which also features title track “Kalenda,” gets its name from the dance (there’s a championship of it!). Also, the Caribbean dance is a stick fight! How cool is that? Anyway, please leave any sticks at home, and dance in a matter however it moves you. Lost Bayou Ramblers has played lovely music since 1999, when brothers Louis and Andre Michot decided to do their own thing. Accordion fans will get to hear Andre Michot play the Cajun accordion; Michot is actually one of the only Cajun accordion builders! The group’s worked with actress-singer Scarlett Johansson on 2012’s Mammoth Waltz tracks “Coteau Guidry” and “Coteau Guidry Reprise.” If she likes them, you’ll like them.
