Live After Five with Flow Tribe
Live After Five in Downtown Baton Rouge is the capital city's premier FREE live music event, hosted by the Downtown Business Association at AZ Young Park. The fall season of Live After Five continues this Friday with Flow Tribe. Boiled in the musical melting pot of New Orleans, simmered in Louisiana soul, Flow Tribe transcends the traditional barriers of the music establishment with their unique style and sound. With the delicacy of a sledgehammer, Flow Tribe fuses psychedelic/blues and funk/rock to captivate any crowd.
