The Acadiana Center for the Arts continues to outdo itself as a premier destination for performing arts — live music in particular — in Lafayette. To wit: the AcA’s 2015-16 season, which includes the Louisiana Crossroads and AllStars concert series as well as its Family Performance Series, features legendary performers like Buddy Guy, Randy Newman and George Porter Jr. and local faves Steve Riley, Buckwheat Zydeco and Zachary Richard.

Series tickets for AcA members went on sale Tuesday; series tickets go on sale to the general public on Sept. 14. Individual performance ticket sales will be available to members on Sept. 18 and go on sale to the public on Sept. 23. Tickets can be obtained through the AcA website by clicking here.
