AUSTIN, TX (AP) — Texas Music Theater San Marcos will soon open on the town’s historical downtown square.
Selected to host the 2011 Lone Star Music Awards on March 27, the musical lineup for the evening includes headliner Hayes Carll, Lincoln Durham, Javi Garcia, The Trishas and Max Stalling.
Texas Music Theater, at 120 E. San Antonio St., will offer a variety of entertainers, can accommodate 1000, and boasts being ready to handle intimate acoustic performances as well as large-scale special events and full-production national touring acts.
Audiences can expect live music performances in musical genres from Americana, Texas country and rock to indie rock, blues and Tejano-Salsa-Latin. The Theater will always be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
Other scheduled performances include country rocker Cory Morrow on March 9 and Mr. Fest free music event with a big lineup of entertainers the weekend of April 28-29.
The venue is also available for private parties, corporate meetings, special events and rehearsals of national touring acts.
“Once they’re onstage and performing, the musicians who play here won’t want to leave,” said Gray Gregson, one of the owners of Texas Music Theater, a lifelong musician and winner of a W.C. Handy Award for 2003 Blues Song of the Year.
