Los Lonely Boys concert to follow free music, children’s activities




An afternoon and evening of music on the Courthouse Square to benefit the local League of Latin American Citizens council will culminate in a performance by renowned band Los Lonely Boys at San Marcos’ Texas Music Theater on Saturday.

The musical lineup at the Texas Music Theater will include Patricia Vonne at 8 p.m., Vallejo at 9:20 p.m., Vitera at 10:40 p.m., and Los Lonely Boys at midnight.

Veteran music event coordinator Danny Crooks said proceeds of the concert will be used by LULAC Council 4876 to offer scholarships for high school students.

Before the theater opens its doors at 7 p.m., there will be free music on the Courthouse Square from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., provided by bands Kalua, Este Vato, Boca Abajo, Alex Roxx, and Riding Blind.

“We will also have burgers, fajitas, snow cones, ice cream, sodas and water for the people to purchase on this wonderful day of music and family fun,” Crooks said. “There will be a petting zoo, pony rides and a kiddie train, and face painting for the kids. There will not be any alcohol sold on the square, making this a true event for the family. Please come and support LULAC 4876.”

On Aug. 16, Mayor Daniel Guerrero honored members of LULAC Council 4876 for their efforts to bring Los Lonely Boys to San Marcos for a performance. Guerrero proclaimed Aug. 27 as Los Lonely Boys Day in San Marcos.

LULAC, the largest and oldest Hispanic organization in the United States, exists to advance the interests of Hispanic Americans through its community-based programs. There are more than 900 LULAC councils in the U.S.

LULAC’s priorities include making positive contributions to Hispanic in the realms of civic participation, civil rights, economic empowerment, education, health, housing, immigration, public service, and technology.

A fairly recent addition to San Marcos, the Texas Music Theater features state-of-the-art digital sound, lighting, and acoustics, and attracts Texas bands of all kinds, local and regional artists, and national touring acts.

Tickets to Saturday’s concert at the theater may be purchased in San Marcos at Rosado’s Insurance, Backstage Motors on Guadalupe Street, and Sundance Records. Tickets may be purchased online here or here .

  1. Hey Voter, looks like you just got out of the 1800s…do you even understand the history of the country you presumably support, judging by your screen name? Fool…

  2. Who would have predicted Los Lonley Boys in San Marcos! Thanks again to Scott and Gray Gregson for building the Texas Music Theater. If you have not been there yet to see a show you need to check it out. Bob Schneider put on a great show a few weeks ago.

  3. Watson, thanks for your kind words. We are excited to have such great performances and entertainment scheduled for this fall.
