by Nathan Stubbs

Some call him the space cowboy. Some call him the gangster of love. Some people call him Maurice. But his name is Dege Legg: rocker, poet, skater, Independent Weekly staffer, Lafayette's own Arthur Rimbaud. This evening, weather permitting, he leads local supergroup Black Bayou Construckt, with members Hawley Joe Gary, Sean Keating, Esther Tyree, Chad Viator and Chad Willis, as they take the stage for a pre-Halloween, Downtown Alive blowout for the ages. Black Bayou describe themselves as a "psyouthern Gypsy-Death-Blues Atmospheric sextet that plays original compositions for The People." Show starts at 6.
