Y'all, The Boss is coming! The biggest concert announcement of the week had the whole internet buzzing when it broke nationally that this year's March Madness Music Festival will bring Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, fun., Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, and The Killers to Dallas. Though we can barely contain our excitement for all the college basketball festivities coming in April, a couple of unexpected treats popped up on our radar with Beenie Man at Heroes Lounge and GOBLIN at Texas Theatre. On top of all of this, Homegrown Festival announced its approval to block off Main Street for the May 10 outing. They also added Sarah Jaffe, Mystery Skulls, The Baptist Generals, Son of Stan, Calhoun and Sam Lao to an already impressive lineup.
