2023 to be big music year

Alejandro Escovedo opens the 2023 Texas Music Series on March 4 at the Cultural Activities Center and tickets are available at cacarts.org. 

Season tickets on sale for Texas Music Series


Season tickets to the eight-show Texas Music Series are now on sale at cacarts.org and the Cultural Arts Center, 3011 N 3rd Street in Temple.

The entire series can be purchased for $300 for CAC members and $350 for non-members. Individual concert tickets will be available in mid January.

“We are very excited about the 2023 Texas Music Series lineup,” said Mary Black Pearson, executive director of the Cultural Activities Center. “The selected artists will bring a variety of music to the CAC stage beginning in March.”

“Every performance offers a great opportunity for a night out with family and friends,” she said.

The series opens March 4 with Alejandro Escovedo, and this show is guaranteed to be a hot ticket. The former frontman for the punk rock band The Nuns re-invents himself every few years.

As lead singer for The Nuns, he developed a huge following and the band often opened for the Sex Pistols. He switched gears and became a roots rock favorite with The True Believers, then went country with Rank & File. 

Expect Escovedo’s Temple show to run the gamut, mixing powerful rock ’n’ roll with punk sounds and gentler songs with a Hispanic twist.

Other artists in this season’s Texas Music Series mix include Radney Foster, Marc Cohn of Walking in Memphis fame, Carrie Rodriguez, Dale Watson, Shinyribs, BoDeans and Jeff Plankenhorn.
