Did you happen to turn your TV to ESPNU on Wednesday night when Keenan Evans caught fire and became an instant legend? I would like to be the first to officially petition TXDOT to name the future South Loop 88 the Keenan Evans Freeway. Someone out there has to have a contact in their office. Holler at me.
The Day the Music Died was February 3rd, 1959, and there are quite a few ways to commemorate the life of Buddy Holly this weekend including the event on Saturday at the Buddy Holly Center and showings of La Bamba and The Buddy Holly Story at the Alamo Drafthouse.
Also, the First Friday Art Trail is in session tonight. Swing by the Buddy Holly Center and learn more about Lubbock’s most famous citizen and the man credited as being “the century’s most influential musician.”
This may not be the greatest segue, but I’d like to take this chance to share a few videos of two of my favorite artists at the moment who got together on Saturday Night Live over the weekend. Turn it up to 11 and enjoy.
