San Marcos Tonight 04/27/13

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

San Marcos is so full of a number of things that we’re sure we should all be as happy as kings (apologies to Robert Louis Stevenson). Today is the proof that putting hundreds of talented people in a small town will not make it implode: well over 100 bands are playing today thanks to Mr. and Miz Fest and there’s an Earth Day Festival at Aquarena Springs with talent galore. The Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center will host their 29th Annual Auction at Texas State’s LBJ Student Center Ballroom tonight. But wait– so much more. If you still need more music, go to the Triple Crown and hear our favorite smart and glammy degenerates, Chasca. Or, you could spend the evening with the family-friendly musical “Freckleface Strawberry” at the Price Seniors Center. You can sleep when you’re dead, right?


MizFest (full lineup listing)

MizFest: FREE. 30+ bands, poets, and even a bit of comedy. More local acts than any festival all year!!! So come hang out and see all of your favorite bands on one of our three stages.
