Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Cité des Arts – This summer, Vau De Ville Acadienne will take on Lafayette with their production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about a fictional rock and roll band fronted by a transgender East German singer, Hedwig Robinson. The book is by John Cameron Mitchell, and the music and lyrics are by Stephen Trask. The story draws on Mitchell's life as the son of a U.S. Army Major General who once commanded the U.S. sector of occupied West Berlin. The character of Hedwig was inspired by a German divorced U.S. Army wife who was a Mitchell family babysitter and moonlighted as a prostitute at her Junction City, Kansas, trailer park home. The music is steeped in the androgynous 1970s glam rock style of David Bowie, as well as the work of John Lennon and early punk performers Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. Tickets are $15 General Admission and $12 for Students. Tickets can be reserved by calling 337-291-1122 or at citedesarts.org Showtimes run Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees at 2:00pm. This show is supported by The Stage Backers. Thank you for all you do for the arts in this city.

Caleb Synan (Conan, Last Comic Standing) & Adam Christie at Club 337
Lafayette Comedy – Lafayette Comedy brings The Two Trees Comedy Show every month to Club 337 inside the Doubletree Hotel. This monthly showcase features the best national and touring standup comedians around. Past appaearances by Joe DeRosa, Billy Wayne Davis, and Emo Philips. This month's headliner is Caleb Synan. He has been featured on Conan, Last Comic Standing, and Comedy Central. Thursday, July 27th 8:00 p.m. $5 cover at the door *** AGES 21+ *** Hosted by Jason P Leonard Featuring Adam Christie, Nick Portier, Shelby Shone, and MJ Warren. Caleb Synan bio: Caleb Synan’s breakout performance on CONAN was praised as “One of the Top 5 Late Night Debut’s of 2015” by TheLaughButton.com. Though his parents remain skeptical of his profession, he is a comedic force to be reckoned with – headlining clubs across the country and at home in LA! He continues to stay fake humble about his talents, even though his deceptively smart blend of Southern charm and razor sharp wit has earned him appearances on Last Comic Standing, Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival, and the title of “Wittiest” in Franklin County High School’s 2009 Yearbook. He did not write this bio himself, either. He swears. But he did write and star in his own web-series for Comedy Central entitled “Deadliest Chef.” And in 2016 he performed stand up on Hulu’s Coming to the Stage, Fuse TV’s Uproarious, and on a tour for the US troops in South Korea and Japan! And he’ll have a margarita with you if you play your cards right!

J Burton (FREE SHOW)
Blue Moon Saloon – After a three-year stint as a dirty townie in Athens, GA, J Burton moved back home to Lafayette in 2004 and started a little folk band called Dire Wood. The band grew into to a five piece fully electrified rock mainstay and their 2008 release The Escape charted on college radio stations across the US. Then in 2009, inspired by the quirky rock of Brian Eno, J started the bombastic indie-pop group FIGHTs. That band’s 2013 release, Music For Villains, reached #1 in several markets upon its release. In February 2016, he was the Rhum Room’s Featured Artist of the Month. Catch him live on the honky-tonk stage! "Each Thursday in July I'll be doing a solo set at the Blue Moon starting around 9/9:30pm. Each set will focus on a different era of my long and winding musical journey that I've been on since I moved back home from Athens in 2004. July 6th I'll be doing songs from the Dire Wood catalog, July 13th I'll do FIGHTs stuff, on the 20th I'll do the songs from the band Talker, plus the solo stuff that I worked up last year. Then on the 27th Grand Nathaniel and the Ghosts (full band) will do a special set with a whole brand new Ghost. Even I am often confused by my own career and some of the odd choices I've made, and some of the unavoidable circumstances that have forced me to pivot, so this is definitely as much an excercise for me as it is entertainment for those few fans (that I hold in very high regard) that have stuck with me since the very start. Maybe this will help make sense of it all (probably not)." -Grand Nathaniel Poster by Burton Durand.

Brass Mimosa
Blue Moon Saloon – What once started as an idea for a blues rock band gradually formed into the funky grooves of Brass Mimosa. Featuring Jack Langlinais on drums, Ethan Mould on alto sax, Alex Camel on bass, Blake Pujol on guitar, Eddie Müller on trombone, and Olatunde Soyombo on baritone sax, Brass Mimosa, like most local bands, comes from humble beginnings in their town of Lafayette, Louisiana. They’ve grown to perform for larger audiences and festivals in the region and have had the pleasure of opening for several national touring acts such as Snarky Puppy, Shaun Martin, Herman Astro and Eyes Lips Eyes. https://www.facebook.com/brassmimosa/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94rcAea3ANk
