Lafayette Louisiana’s Lost Bayou Ramblers had the honors of opening slot on Arcade Fire’s recent Texas dates.  The two bands may come from opposite ends of the continent, Arcade Fire from Montreal Canada, and the Ramblers from south Louisiana’s Acadiana, but they still share a common culture: these are the two regions in North America to speak French as a dominant language.  Arcade Fire’s Win Butler, wearing a Pope bobblehead mask, joined the band onstage for a version of The Who’s “My Generation,” sung in Cajun French of course.
