Lone Star Indie Bash at the Brewery – October 24th, 2009

Filed under: Austin Music Events

lone star indie bash

The “National Beer of Texas” is inviting fans to win tickets to a one day concert on Saturday, October 24th at the historic Lone Star Brewery. Created in 1884 for business and recently restored for pleasure, the Brewery sits in the beautiful (but not as cool as Austin) city of San Antonio, Texas.

Texas faves like Austin’s Ben Kweller, San Antonio’s Charlie Robison and Dallas’ Jonathan Tyler will be performing as well as other boot-wearin’ artists. The event will feature food stands, and to quote the most delightful line of the Press Release… “concert goers will be able to enjoy Lone Star Beer.”

You have until September 30th to enter the sweepstakes online at for a chance to see the show (TICKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR), and to win some cool VIP-style prizes. (You must be 21 to enter)

Proceeds from product sales at the concert will go to Texas Music Project, a non-profit which works in conjunction with the Texas music industry, State of Texas, Texas Music Educators Association, Texas Commission on the Arts, and the Texas Coalition for Quality Arts Education. All of these organizations help strengthen and restore music education to Texas schools.
