Levitt Pavilion Arlington Announces Summer Schedule

This one’s for my DFW readers. The Levitt Pavilion in Arlington has announced their summer schedule. If you weren’t already aware of this series, the Levitt is an outdoor music space across from City Hall in Arlington (100 W Abram St) that features free events Thurs-Sun (plus some Weds shows that are targeted for the kids) during the Summer and Fall months. This year’s lineup is stacked with some great Texas artists and local talent. It’s a great time to get out with your family, grab some drinks and food, throw out a blanket and listen to some great tunes. We’ll probably venture out a few times this season. Anyways, here’s the lineup.

the Dirty River Boys (Funk-rock band out of El Paso put on a fun show)
the Roomsounds (Bluesy rock fueled from the classics)
Sarah Jaffe (one of our favorite local artists. definitely one to catch if you haven’t yet. Fantastic Singer Songwriter)
Hudson Moore (Alt-country up-and-comer from Funkytown)
Gedeon Luke & the People (Funky soul crooner)
the Royal Southern Brotherhood (Group includes Cyril Neville and Stevie Ray’s nephew on guitar)
Larry (G)ee (Show stopping soul singer out of Dallas, former front man for the band Odis)
Statesboro Revue (Timeless, old school roots rock duo)
Betty Soo & Matt the Electrician (a pair of excellent artists out of Austin)
the O’s (a laid back and hilarious pair of guys playing great Americana music)
Ray Wylie Hubbard (one of Texas’s great storytellers)
Jamestown Revival (up and coming band out of the small town of Magnolia, Texas)
