Show Announcements: Summer Series, Wildflower Festival

We are standing on the brink of the summer season, and with the unbearable heat comes the obligatory summer outdoor live music series.

The heat is inevitable, but the Belmont Hotel and the AT&T Performing Arts Center are offering a few ways to make it a little more tolerable.

The Belmont and KXT have teamed up to offer the Barefoot At The Belmont series. On May 6, Austin's The Trishas play with Jason Eady. June 3 sees Rhett Miller with Seryn. Doug Burr and Joe Pug play on July 8. And, on August 5, The O's open for Danny Barnes.

Tickets are $20, but if you're a KXT member you get a $10 discount. Order your tickets in advance, here. If 20 bucks seems a little steep, Patio Sessions at the AT&T Performing Arts Center is free. The shows start at 5:30pm, so be ready to clock out right at 5pm on Thursdays this summer. Check that lineup, and others, after jump.
