Show Announcements: Dave Matthews Band, Mesquite Post-Rodeo Concerts, More

Cue the 9/11 jokes: The Dave Matthews Band will play Center in Dallas September 11.

But while that show announcement might otherwise bring a collective shrug to the shoulders of this blog's readers, his opening act is a Dallas Observer favorite, Austin punk/soul lover Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears.

Tickets will be $40 for lawn, $70 for pit general admission, and go on sale through TicketMaster Friday at 10 a.m.

Also, the Mesquite Championship Rodeo has announced its 2010 schedule, which includes several post-rodeo concerts including Jack Ingram July 17, Tracy Lawrence May 22 and Cross Canadian Ragweed April 24. Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 13, through TicketMaster or the rodeo website.
