It's a music and food kind of weekend. On Galveston Island, you can catch Yaga's Wild Game BBQ Cook-off and, along with some great barbecue, you can catch a couple of local country acts.

Kevin Anthony & G - Town (with yours truly on the bass) will be on the main stage Friday and Saturday at Pier 21. You can also catch DJ Roland Martinez and the Brandon McDermott Band Saturday.

There will also be other bands and acoustic acts hanging around at different tents. It should be a really good time for a good cause. The money raised goes to Galveston County children's charities.

If you happen to find yourself on Bolivar, or if you fancy a ferry ride, then make sure to check out the Texas Crab Festival in Crystal Beach. Grammy award winner Wayne Toups kicks things off Friday night and music, not to mention plenty of food, will go on through the weekend.
