Town Creek Art Remix
The Fall 2012 Art Remix concert features an opening act by Jackson’s own “Good Times Band” the Southern Komfort Brass Band, and is headlined by Uncle Lucius, an Austin-based indie rock band. Uncle Lucius takes rock and roll from its deep roots and adds in elements of R&B and blues, and their latest album “And You Are Me” is reminiscent of The Doors to early Black Crowes. The Fall 2012 Art Remix celebrates the end of the 2nd Annual Town Creek Arts Festival. COST: FREE ADMISSION, FOOD OPTIONS STARTING AT $5, CASH BAR. NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR BEVERAGE. BLANKETS AND CHAIRS WELCOME
