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.
Well, of course it’s the Bobcat’s home opener tonight as they take on Prairie View A&M on the Jim Wacker Field gridiron at Bobcat Stadium. The first home game always seems like the official start of autumn; football, Frito pies, marching bands, cheering crowds and all. After the game why not stop by Cheatham Street Warehouse for a bit of music from Tom Gilliam? Gilliam (pictured) seems to be channeling a radio that plays three different programs at once; you’ll get a bit of 70’s Allman Brothers style rock, a bit of Waylon Jennings and a bit of Wilco all swirling around a slide guitar or two. The music starts up around 10:30 p.m. so you won’t miss a lick of football.
Dave Barker, world-renowned snake expert and the author of “Pythons of the World, Volumes I and II,” will discuss the fascinating anatomy and behavior of snakes. His presentation will explore common snakes of the Texas Hill Country, including water snakes, venomous snakes and many other fascinating critters slithering upon the hills. This workshop will include a hands-on component with live specimens for participants to handle. Register online at Cibolo.org/calendar.
On September 7 at 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., San Antonio Street on south side of the courthouse. Fresh produce, plants, arts and crafts every Saturday downtown.
Join Master Gardeners Ginny Frederick and Shanna Cianno as they demonstrate how to create a raised garden bed and simple techniques to protect gardens from hungry deer. The presenters also will answer gardening questions and address garden challenges. Attendees can browse the Inspiration Garden and also shop for produce at the adjacent Farmers Market.
