The Record

Winter has reached its halfway point, so it is definitely OK to start making plans with friends for any one, or more, of the below listed music events. Several new shows have been announced this week, such as Lynyrd Skynyrd in Lafayette in May as its farewell tour continues, and Shinedown in The Woodlands on the first day of summer. There is no shortage of shows in Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana either, so enjoy!
