During concerts, a musician’s wild side emerges, such as when a guitarist destroys an amplifier or a singer eats a zebra. Observe untamed talent with today's GrouponLive deal to the "Spring Break Splash" concert, presented by the Aransas Pass Chamber of Commerce at Shrimporee Grounds. For $25, you get two general-admission tickets on Saturday, March 10, at 4:15 p.m. (a $50 value). Gates open at 3 p.m.
Stomping through Shrimporee Grounds, "Spring Break Splash" rounds up some of the Lone Star State's rootinest, tootinest musical acts for a one-day hoedown. Rather than sneaking in underneath a friend's mustache, fans can gallop through the gates with general-admission tickets as Lyrical Bynge kicks off the festivities behind seasoned songbird Edna DeLa Garza, known for amusing original narratives such as "Last Night's Hairdo" and twangy takes on everything from Janis Joplin to Lady Gaga. At 6 p.m., a slowly descending sun accompanies soul-searching harmonica solos belted out by Seth Candan, who rides in atop two Texas Music Award nominations, including an Album of the Year nod for his latest release, The Aftermath.
As night falls, the Bart Crow Band storms the stage to tickle ears like an overaffectionate cowboy hat, unfurling ardent guitar riffs across such barn-stomping anthems as "Wear My Ring" and "Forever." Behind a sprawling repertoire of albums and hit singles such as "Lead Me On" and "Hold Us Together," Cory Morrow caps off the evening with a pop-country finale, sending listeners home hand in hand with a sweetheart or hand in hoof with an adored mechanical bull.
