Celebrate Texas Independence Day on Saturday at Terminal 5March 4th, 2015
This week marks the 179th anniversary of Texas Independence Day—and this Saturday at Terminal 5 is the seventh anniversary of us celebrating it in style. Inspired by Lonestar musical royalty like Waylon Jennings, Robert Earl Keen and Willie Nelson, singer-songwriter Pat Green has been making Texas country music since 1995, while he was still in college. And he’s been fairly prolific ever since graduating, releasing nine studio albums and a pair of live LPs, in addition to becoming known as an energetic live performer, all of which has made him very popular in his home state. Green’s most recent album, Songs We Wish We’d Written II (stream it below), highlighted by covers of “Even the Losers” and “Soulshine,” came out in 2012, but he’s currently working his way up and down the East Coast. And you can see Green (above, performing “Wave on Wave” for Texas Music Scene) on Saturday at Terminal 5, alongside the like-minded Josh Abbott Band, Casey Donahew Band and Hudson Moore. And as an added bonus, any patron at least 21 years old with a Texas-related tattoo or wearing an article of clothing with a logo from a Texas college on it will receive one complimentary drink.
