Prospects for Texas beating USC this Saturday seem iffy at best after the Longhorns’ narrow win over lowly Tulsa this past weekend. But across from the stadium on the LBJ Library Lawn, the new Longhorn City Limits series brought some welcome live local music to pregame festivities with sets from blues great Jimmie Vaughan and soul band the Nightowls.
Next up, UT formally announced this morning, are country-roots-rockers Reckless Kelly and blues jammers the Peterson Brothers Band, who’ll play before the Horns take on the Trojans at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15. The Peterson Brothers will play from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., with Reckless Kelly following from 5 to 6:15 p.m. Admission is free; no ticket to the game is required.
It’s one of two high-profile sports-related appearances Reckless Kelly will be making this month. The band recently announced that its annual Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam at Dell Diamond, set for Sunday, Sept. 23, will be the last of a 10-year run for the popular charity event.
Longhorn City Limits shows will continue at all home games this season. The full schedule hasn’t been revealed; announcements of the next event will happen at that stadium during each game.
