If you are a fan of live music, you won't want to miss out on this upcoming Buddy Holly Center Summer Showcase Concert Series. According to a press release on Friday, Lubbock's No Dry County will be performing on Thursday, June 24th at the Buddy Holly Center from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

What type of music will you hear? No Dry County likes to refer to themselves and others as "Panhandle Music".

Lubbock’s No Dry County started using the term “Panhandle Music” a few years back to describe the music that had been coming out of West Texas’ dusty Panhandle. While it’s certainly been used as a catch-all for artists coming out of the region, it specifically has been used to give a rough outline of what No Dry County sounds like themselves in a short, timely manner. It’s easy to get wrapped up in trying to define what Panhandle Music is. Everyone from the pioneering bands such as The Maines Brothers, The Flatlanders and Terry Allen to modern-day troubadours like Brandon Adams, Ryan Culwell and William Clark Green have been dubbed as Panhandle Music.

The 2021 Summer Showcase Series is held every Thursday at the Buddy Holly Center through August 19 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Food trucks and a cash bar will always be on site and admission is completely free. Those attending can also view the Buddy Holly Collection and the Fine Arts Gallery for free during the Summer Showcase Series. No outside beverages, chairs, or picnic blankets will be allowed during the concerts.

You can get more information about the Summer Showcase Series at the Buddy Holly Center's website.
