Pat Green & Friends Celebrate Texas Independence Saturday at T5March 2nd, 2016
Today is the 180th anniversary of Texas Independence Day—and Saturday at Terminal 5 is the eighth 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 a slew of 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 full-length, Home (stream it below), his first album of original material in six years, came out last summer. And according to Rolling Stone Country, it “features a mature, easy-going country sound—one that’s rooted and free of cross-genre influence—and lands somewhere between Green’s early Texas dancehall days and big radio hits.” On Saturday at Terminal 5, Green (above, performing “Girls from Texas” for Texas Music Scene), alongside the like-minded Randy Rogers Band, Casey Donahew Band and Wade Bowen. 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.
