Grab your cowboy boots out of the closet and get over to Hurricane Harry's summer acoustic series! Come out this Wednesday and enjoy country music by Parker McCollum and Chris Colston. Doors open at 9, so don't forget to come out and support your Texas musicians.

While we often think of concerts in terms of the high-production shows we see at festivals or on TV, there’s always something magical about the intimacy of a stripped-down acoustic set. When there’s nothing separating the artist and their guitar from the audience, it forges a connection between ...
