Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Discovery Green has formally announced the performers for the venue's weekly Thursday night shows, starting May 2. These free weeklies have everything you need, from beer and food to plenty of grass to stretch out on and, of course, great music.

This year's acts include The Suffers, Billy Joe Shaver, Hadden Sayers, Chase Hamblin, Mingo Fishtrap, Papa Grows Funk, Electric Attitude and many more.

The series is co-sponsored by the Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Cactus Music and us here at the Houston Press. The concert series begins May 2 and run through June 27, starting at 6:30 p.m., right near quitting time for most working folks.

Here is the summer schedule. Mark your calendars; that Suffers gig will probably be a scorcher. Also of note is Fastball front man Tony Scalzo handling support duties for Mingo Fishtrap on May 16. And, of course, any chance to see Texas country legend Billy Joe Shaver should be taken. But hey, he is going to live forever, after all.

May 2 -- Hadden Sayers, with John Egan

May 9 -- Texas Guitar Women, with Herb Remington

May 16 -- Mingo Fishtrap, with Tony Scalzo

May 23 -- La Sien, with Los Guerreros de la Musica

May 30 -- Billy Joe Shaver, with Brennen Leigh

June 13 -- Papa Grows Funk, with Electric Attitude

June 20 -- The Suffers, with Chase Hamblin

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
