If you’re passing through the area in search of live Cajun music this weekend, downtown Shreveport is exactly where you need to be.
The band – which features Louis Michot on fiddle and vocals, Andre Michot on accordion and lapsteel, Pauly Deathwish on drums and vocals and Cavan Carruth on guitar and vocals – has been touring the country nonstop since the release of their latest album, Mammoth Waltz, last April. Rolling Stone featured a video about the making of the album on its website and described the Lost Bayou Ramblers as a band that “continues to push their Cajun-roots tunes into grittier, new rock-based realms.”
They’re also featured in “The Bathtub,” a single from the soundtrack for the critically-acclaimed hit film Beasts of the Southern Wild.
Check them out in this recent live performance at the Blackpot Festival in Lafayette.
