The first of three planned holiday weekend concerts on Lake Lewisville goes down this Sunday, May 27, with Ray Wylie Hubbard, James McMurtry, Wayne Hancock, Michael Donner & the Southern Renaissance, Grant Jones & the Pistol Grip Lassos and The O's. The concept of Float: You'll be able to swim, enjoy music and be on a boat.
After we posted the initial announcement, a few of you commented that Lake Lewisville's nickname is "Lake Death." I'm not familiar with the origins of that name, but I'm hoping this doesn't mean an errant beer can tossed in the lake will break open a Paleolithic grave and send flesh-hungry piranhas scrambling to the surface. (Note: That's the very believable premise to Piranha 3-D.)
