Texas Bands Together Part II

Concerts over the next few weeks benefit victims of Central TX floods

Texas Bands Together Part II

As a new front of storms brews in the Gulf of Mexico, and Texas prepares for more wet weather, news of relief concerts keeps flowing in.

Texas lived up to its motto as 'The Friendship State' when people from all over pitched in to clean up and assist in recovery efforts after the destructive Memorial weekend floods. Likewise, organizers and musicians have come together and donated proceeds from several benefit concerts. Here's a new list of even more.

Be safe, stay dry, and keep checking in for live music that's helping rebuild lives.
