Live music is a huge improvement on canned music, which takes up valuable pantry space and often spoils into noxious free jazz. Keep it fresh with today’s GrouponLive deal to see the Sunday Sunset concert series, presented by Alliance for the Arts at the Margaret Morrow Frizzell Amphitheater. For $30, you get one general-admission ticket to see three concerts (a $60 value). Seating will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets, chairs, and coolers. Each concert begins at 5 p.m., with gates opening at 4 p.m. The three concerts include:
- Little Eddie and the Fat Fingers on February 26
- Davina and The Vagabonds on March 18
- Rebekah Pulley on April 22
Alliance for the Arts declares a musical call to arms during its 2012 concert series, which delights famished ears with a veritable feast served by a trio of talented ensembles. Attendees stake their claim across the amphitheater’s grassy grounds with blankets and multitiered pillow forts as Little Eddie and the Fat Fingers jump-start the three-month production with a rollicking blend of Chicago-style blues and 1950s boogie-woogie. In March, Davina and The Vagabonds adorn brassy measures with the velvety vocals of lead singer Davina Sowers, who has shared the stage with such blues legends as Buddy Guy and Little Feat. Rebekah Pulley shepherds the concert series to its folksy finale with an earthy union of soulful southern rock and straight-from-the heart songwriting aided by shocks from a defibrillator. Margaret Morrow Frizzell Amphitheater’s open-air setup allows concertgoers to breathe in fresh breezes while munching on snacks brought from home and soaking in complimentary views of the setting sun.
