A daily rundown of live entertainment in and around San Marcos tonight, compiled by Mercury Scene Editor Hap Mansfield and our content partners at San Marcos Tonight.



Tonight’s Best Bet

We have an embarrassment of riches tonight starting with Vincent Herring, the Grammy Award-winning saxophonist, who will be at the Hill Country Jazz Festival Eddie Durham Concert tonight at 7:30 p.m. While he’s played with a who’s who of jazz musicians, his own style is unique and bewitching. The whole concert is stacked with amazing musicians. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s also the hugely talented big fun of Reverend Horton Heat at the Texas Music Theater. If you can slip into the Triple Crown at 6 p.m. the Rick Lugo Band will electrify. The New Braunfels Blues Society Front Porch Pickers at Riley’s Tavern will cure what ails you. Jason Eady’s band at Cheatham Street Warehouse is Alt-Country delicious. You really can’t go wrong– just go out and see some live music tonight.
