The State Fair of Texas: This Year's 11 Best Concerts

Another Texas State Fair is upon us and when you're not trying to stuff as much fried, doughy goodness into you or riding any number of spinning rides hoping said dough won't unexpectedly leave your body, you might want to take a breather and listen to some music. It's just like food, except when you let too much of it enter your body, you don't pray for a quick swift death in the same way until someone deep fries Carly Rae Jepsen.

So when the inevitable moment comes that you can't afford any more Tums or tickets, the Fair will have you covered with a ton of free outdoor concerts. Here's just a taste of the music acts that are on tap while you give your tummy a much deserved rest.
