This morning White Oak Music Hall, the deluxe multi-stage music venue now under construction on Houston's near Northside, announced its grand opening date and initial concert lineup for its 40' x 40' outdoor stage. On tap for the opening weekend are the French electronic moodscapes of M83 (April 9); as well as young UK synth-pop trio CHVRCHES (April 29); and a multigenerational psych-pop rager on Memorial Day weekend featuring the Flaming Lips, Roky Erickson, Title Fight, DIIV and Nada Surf on May 29.
“I’m excited to see M83, CHVRCHES, and The Flaming Lips play outdoors with the downtown Houston skyline as the backdrop; that was hard to imagine a few years ago,” Pegstar founder Jagi Katial said in a press release.
The lineup for White Oak's remaining two indoor stages should be announced soon, he added.
