There won't be an outdoor concert after this year's Observer-sponsored (what, what?) Greenville Avenue St. Patrick's Day Parade. Not a hundred percent why--the promotions people say something about the pigs, oink oink. Instead, this year's after-party concert will take place at the Granada Theater--mostly on the main stage, but with a few added performances to take place on the front patio, I'm told.
Anyway with the lineup now official, that side of the office said we could pass along the bill for this year's Saturday, March 13, deal, which will start at 12:30 in the just-barely afternoon.
Just before heading to SXSW and a couple weeks before its scheduled Jimmy Kimmel Live performance on March 31, Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights will headline the show, which will also feature performances from Austin's Soulhat and longtime Dallas favorite Fever in the Funkhouse.
In related news, Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights' major label debut, Pardon Me, is currently slated for an April 27 release date.
