This show is part of partnership between WWOZ and the Healthier Air for All Campaign (HAFA), a series of concerts around Louisiana in the Join The Movement Tour, promoting healthy smoke-free environments for Louisiana musicians and fans.
WWOZ will live broadcast of Chubby Carrier show from Luna Live in Lake Charles at 10p on Saturday July 12. It's the most recent of six concerts around Louisiana in the Join The Movement Tour, promoting healthy smoke-free environments for Louisiana musicians and fans, presented by WWOZ and the Healthier Air for All Campaign (HAFA).
The majority of Louisianans (79%) don’t smoke. The Join the Movement Tour’s goal is to demonstrate to bar and venue owners that there is wide public support for smoke-free shows. Six venues will go smoke-free to help increase public awareness of the health dangers that smoking causes for musicians and live music lovers.
The concert series kicked off on May 20 when the Blue Nile went smoke-free for the Open Ears Concert in celebration of Sun Ra’s 100th Anniversary with a performance by Jeff Albert, James Singleton, Brad Walker, Ray Moore, Rick Trolson, Jimbo Walsh and more.
The remaining cites and venues are listed below. Check back for artists yet to be determined.
WWOZ will live broadcast the Rebirth Brass Band from the Louisiana Music Factory on July 1 starting at 7p.
