Still have pocket change after getting tickets to the Boss and Leonard Cohen? Kevin Shields’ shoegaze messiahs My Bloody Valentine are coming to the Austin Music Hall on April 21, immediately after an appearance at Coachella, as part of a five-city US tour. Tickets are on sale now and won't be around for long.
Asleep at the Wheel’s Ray Benson has high hopes for his tribute musical A Ride with Bob, which runs Friday and Saturday at the Long Center for Performing Arts. “We really want to do the film some day,” he says. “This is a G-rated show, but to be honest with you, Bob Wills lived an X-rated life.”
