Summer is upon us (kind of has been since January), and that means it's time to get your butts wet on the Gexa Energy Pavilion lawn. Unless, of course, you're rich enough to have "reserved seating money." You kind of have to for the just announced Drake show on Wednesday, May 16, which will cost $59.83 to $114.32. Tickets for the show will be available on Friday at 10 a.m. at Live Nation. And, judging by his last, slightly controversial show here in the Metroplex, it'll be worth it.

In other wet butt, Gexa Energy Pavilion news, Dave Matthews Band is returning from their 2011 year off to perform at the outdoor venue on Saturday, May 19. And the frat boys go crazy. Tickets are on sale now at Live Nation for $54.42 to $91.13.
