Speaking of radio station-hosted events, KBFB-97.9 FM The Beat's been rolling the lineup for its 6th Annual Custom Car Show & Concert, which takes place at Fair Park on Sunday, March 21. There's still some more names to come, the radio station, promises, but, so far it too is actually looking pretty impressive.
Yesterday, the station added Houston rap legend Bun B to a bill that already includes Ice Cube, Dorrough, Omarion, Waka Flocka Flame and Roscoe Dash. Keep checking back here for updates as the station continues adding names to its list. Tickets, available right here, are available for the pretty low asking price of $17.50. Which, for those playing at home, is $12 to $40 less than the Edgefest asking price.
