Levitt Pavilion – Arlington, TX, 100 W. Abram St.
Arlington, TX 76010 United States

Cruising the rock/roots highway Thirteen years can put a heck of a lot of wear and tear on even the hardiest of rock ’n’ roll bands. But don’t be fooled by the hundreds of thousands of miles on Micky & the Motorcars’ odometer. The long-running Austin band is fine-tuned and good to run for at least as many more miles still ahead.

Their partnership included performing in musicals and local coffee shops, until they went their separate ways after high school. Greg headed to New York City to pursue a…

Rewriting the rules of music Becca Mancari has lived a life of transition, from working as a janitor in South Florida to writing songs with train hoppers in the Blue Ridge Mountains and seeking spirituality in India. But it was her time in Virginia and Nashville where she found the roots music that would inspire her musical evolution. Her debut album, Good Woman, is hauntingly lonesome with dust-cloud swells of electric guitar and don't-look-back lyrics revealing scenes from her well-travelled story,…

Levitt Pavilion – Arlington, TX, 100 W. Abram St.
Arlington, TX 76010 United States
  • Presented by

The wandering spirit of a musical storyteller There’s a perfectly natural reason why Dalton Domino’s debut LP, 1806, carries a varied and skillfully unpredictable quality to it. Dalton is filled with the wandering spirit of a storyteller who’s never content with simply drawing from the tales of others. Dalton has kept the fuel for creating original music from his own viewpoint burning on high. Whether it’s the gothic western of “Howl,” the rocking roadhouse vibe of “Dallas,” the sawdust shuffling,…
