The 2013 French Cultures Festival, the sixth annual celebration of all things French across Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, has a new way to kick off the fun — with a free outdoor concert downtown. The French indie group LYS will share the stage with local band The Tontons and the swamp-pop Cajun band The Revelers. LYS is stopping in Houston before heading to Austin for South by Southwest. In addition to the concert, a number of other events are scheduled for the 17-day festival, including film screenings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; lectures; French cooking classes; and more.
