Smart Bets: Lost Bayou Ramblers

South Louisiana Cajun-influenced experimentalists Lost Bayou Ramblers return to Asheville for the second time this year, and just in time for Jack of the Wood's Creole Voodoo Halloween dance party. The band's latest album, Mammoth Waltz, builds on traditional sounds while incorporating new influences — like collaborations with Violent Femmes vocalist Gordon Gano, New Orleans singer-songwriter/pianist Dr. John and actress-turned-chanteuse Scarlett Johansson. And, while Mammoth isn't spooky per se, there's a very good chance that Lost Bayou Ramblers will bring a little voodoo to their Wednesday, Oct. 31 performance. 10 p.m. $8 in advance or $10 day of show.
