Chubby Carrier Live from Lake Charles

Sat, Jul 12, 2014
10:00pm - 12:00am

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.

Shreveport - Bears on Fulton - Saturday July 26 - Papa Mali
Hammond - Benny's Place - Friday August 22
Baton Rouge - Spanish Moon - Saturday August 23 - West Without
Lafayette - Blue Moon Saloon - Friday August 15th
