RARELUTH AND ROYAL TEETH AT DOWNTOWN ALIVE!
Lafayette, La.— For 29 years, Acadiana's premiere concert series, Downtown Alive! (DTA!) has united community and culture to create a weekly tradition and celebration in Downtown Lafayette every Fall and Spring. The Spring 2012 series finale kicks off June 1, 2012, with a dance party from Rareluth followed by the feel-good sounds of Royal Teeth who are sure to keep you on your feet at Parc Sans Souci! DTA! once again offers great entertainment in the form of free, smoke free, family-friendly, outdoor concerts.
Comprised of accomplished musicians Christine Peirce, Blake Ortego and Ryan DeJean from troupes, groups and parties, Rareluth has been established as a near-household name in the Lafayette music scene. Blending Indie, Electronica and a hint of dance, Rareluth accomplishes what few can, making energetic and enjoyable music that gets you out of your seat and on your feet. www.rareluth.com
More often than not, Royal Teeth tries something, and despite the odds or would-be roadblocks, it simply works. Recruit a lead vocalist who has never been in a band before? Check. Record a cover of a popular, mega-selling single for the band's debut EP? Why not? High on the release of "Act Naturally”, the vocal duo of Gary Larsen and Nora Patterson provide heartfelt lyrics as this sextet of musicians travels through melodic soundscapes via a synth-infused sound, all the while boasting a brand all to itself that's not quite "dance pop” and not overly electronic. In fact, Royal Teeth are only interested in being themselves. Furthermore, if making music and having audiences respond well is a difficult thing, it's news to them. http://www.royalteethmusic.com/
Sponsored by Cox Communications and Lafayette Coca-Cola, DTA! features performances by Grammy nominated, renowned and up and coming musicians representing a variety of genres: Swamp Pop, Cajun, Zydeco, Blues, Soul, Rock and more.
