    Recent flooding has devastated Louisiana, and two local bayou-tied organizations are raising money to help.

    Two local bayou-tied organizations are raising relief funds for Louisiana musicians affected by recent flooding.

    Gator By The Bay, the largest Louisiana-themed music and food festival in San Diego, and The Bon Temps Social Club of San Diego (BTSC), a non-profit that sponsors Cajun and zydeco dance events, are hosting a benefit concert on Wednesday at Tio Leo’s Mexican Restaurant in Morena.

    Admission is $10 and all proceeds will go towards the Louisiana Musicians' Flood Relief Fund.

    The event goes from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. and features a Louisiana-inspired dance lesson and live sets by seven local zydeco, blues and swing bands. Here's a look at the schedule:
