Baton Rouge, La — Better Than Ezra, the chart-topping alt-rock trio from New Orleans, will perform at Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar in Baton Rouge on Friday, November 2nd. The live show, dubbed the “Big Game Throwdown,” kicks off LSU-Alabama weekend in style for fans of both teams and the band.
“Walk-On’s has always been our favorite place to watch the Tigers, when we’re not at the game itself,” said Kevin Griffin, vocalist and guitarist for Better Than Ezra. “But this is our first opportunity to perform there, and we know it’s going to be a great way to kick off the weekend.”
Doorsopen at 7:00 PM on Friday, prior to the 8:00 PM showtime. Tickets are $15 in advance (available at www.Walk-Ons.com ), or $20 at the door.
“Better Than Ezra has been my favorite band for as long as I can remember,” said Brandon Landry, co-founder and owner of Walk-On’s and its parent company, Last In Concepts. “Jack and I are really excited to bring them to Walk-On’s for Alabama weekend. I can’t think of a better way to get pumped for the game than at a live BTE show!”
On Saturday night, Nov. 3, popular cover band Category 6 will play a post-gameshow at Walk-On’s. Category 6 is known for their elaborate light shows and wide variety of music, from Pink to Linkin Park.
Earlier this month, Walk-On’s in New Orleans was voted “Best Sports Bar in North America” by ESPN. Walk-On’s has previously been named Best Sports Bar in Baton Rouge, Lafayette and New Orleans.
