San Marcos Mercury | Local News from San Marcos and Hays County, Texas

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

BigFest continues in a big way today and tonight with a delicious mix of salty, sweet, spicy and tangy music. If it sounds like we are describing dinner and dessert, well, we kind of are. What could be more nutritious and vitalizing to body and soul than good music? You get the opportunity to give back to Texas music just a little of what you get when you buy a ticket to BigFest and support the non-profit Cheatham Street Warehouse Foundation. Plus you get a huge bang for your musical buck. Today’s luminaries include Big John Mills (who, alone, is worth it at twice the price), Zac Barfield, Kevin Deal, Halleyanna, The Hill Country Gentlemen, Al Barlow, and many, many more. A favorite of ours is Tres Womack and the Chubby Knuckle Choir (pictured). The band can whomp out blues, swamp and country in a boot stompin’ ruckus that will dance your old blue devils out.
