The Food Gas & Lodging Festival turns up in Baton Rouge for March. So, for people who make the annual pilgrimage trip to Austin to catch it, no worries, its in your back yard now kiddies.
Three local staples of fine BR entertainment, The Spanish Moon, Mud and Water and the Varsity Theatre are actually working together to bring us over 50 great acts this month.
The festival lets performers, bands and artists who are local, or traveling through Baton Rouge (en route to SXSW and other venues) to showcase our local talent and drop some extra money into the pockets of those just passing through.
With a huge line-up showcasing the 2 week long festival, the organizers hope that this will not only draw more people to the event, but also draw awareness to the Baton Rouge music atmosphere.
Nappy Roots will be in attendance
And of course, a partnership between venues is the first step in growing the event into a significant force. Organizers hope that in the coming years, more local venues will be added to the list with sights toward making the GFLF a city wide annual festival.
That's something the area could certainly do well with for the future. But for now, here's this years line-up.
