The new 2-Steppin Saloon in Galveston is celebrating it's grand opening. 

Galveston's own Brandon McDermott Band is hitting the Saloon's stage Saturday at 9 p.m. 

On Friday you can listen to some of the best country music in Texas by checking out Jason Boland & The Stragglers, Roger Creager and Mike and the Moonpies at Big Texas Dance Hall in Webster at 9 p.m.

Boland and Creager are probably names you are already familiar with but Mike and the Moonpies, out of Austin, are a band with just as much grit and groove in the music to keep you dancing all night long and put to shame any of those pop country posers on the radio. 

Of course i would be remiss if I didn't mention that Joe Ely will be at the Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe on Saturday. The show is sold out so if you don't already have tickets I guess you'll just have to wait till the next one.
