With only four more weeks left for the free, live music series, Live After Five isn't showing signs of slowing down. Foret Tradition plans to jump start the party this Friday, October 3 from 5 -8 p.m. at Glavez Plaza, located in Baton Rouge’s North Boulevard Town Square. Refreshments and food will also be available for purchase.





Remember, this event is free, so what better way to usher in October than to dance the evening away with friends and family!

Foret Tradition has been rocking and rolling for more than 10 years and has created several albums. Their music consists of a little bit of everything, including R&B, Soul, Funk, Motown, Country, 1980's Rock, Zydeco and Swamp Pop. Don't know exactly what Swamp Pop is? Swamp Pop is a mix of Acadiana style music with an east Texas twist. But we urge you to come listen for yourself; you won't be disappointed.

See you there!

ETCH Studio- Baton Rouge's Local Jewelry Designers

ETCH Studio, a Baton Rouge- based jewelry company started when Zoe Ganch received a pair of geometric laser cut earrings and a necklace from her friend Mallory Estopinal. While studying architecture at LSU the two girls became fascinated with geometric shapes, playing with lasers and basically making jewelry.







After years of perfecting their product and countless hours of designing the right items, ETCH was born! 

The primary materials used to make these stunning, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces are leather, wood, metal and other various elements. The great thing about this jewelry is that it is chic, very high-end, without the arm and a leg price tag. 



All the jewelry is hand painted by Zoe and Mallory with 100% love and affection. Custom pieces are also an option for the perfect gift for friends and family. 


The girls have recently launched their new fall collected, Terra, which is sold exclusively online. Check out their website at www.shopetch.com and don't forget to follow ETCH on Facebook and Instagram
