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.
