Sweet Crude to play the 7th Street Entry on 4/20


Louisiana bilingual pop project Sweet Crude is a young 6-piece composed of New Orleans musicians creating a sound that sets English and Louisiana’s native French dialect to decidedly non-Cajun music. The band, boasting surnames like Marceaux, Arceneaux, and Chachere, seeks to reconnect with their lineage in the context of 5-part harmonies, tribal rhythms, and pop hooks.

With confirmed appearances at Bonnaroo, High Sierra Festival, and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival this year the band’s North American Tour will bring them to the Entry on 4/20 supported by Motel Radia and The Counterfactuals. Tickets are still available HERE

“We’re making the quirky, energetic compositions that we’d otherwise come up with given our indie rock influences. We’ve got five people playing drums, we’ve got everybody singing, shouting, and dancing. We’re just singing a lot of the time in Louisiana French. We want to show that the language is still alive and kicking, and that it sounds great in any genre,” says primary lyricist Sam Craft.
