Native Cajun 

Pine Leaf Boys

The five members of the Pine Leaf Boys hail from the backwater farms and villages of Cajun country, raised — nay, saturated — in the tradition of local music. Today, in their early twenties, they live together in a shotgun house in downtown Lafayette, Louisiana. The New York Times visited them there a few months ago for Mardi Gras, but this week their raucous Cajun-Creole revival arrives at Alameda's Eagles Hall. Expect dance hall standards dating back to the '30s, plus the band's signature song, "Pine Leaf Boy Two-Step." Friday, June 15. 9 p.m., $15. (415) 285-6285
