June Hub City Happenings

A visit to Lubbock during the first of the month is not complete without stopping by the First Friday Art Trail (FFAT), a program of LHUCA. FFAT is a free, self-guided art tour held in the Lubbock Cultural District in partnership with a variety of art centers, museums, galleries, and businesses located downtown. While there, enjoy live music, food trucks, and art from local, national, and international artists.

Yappy Hour is back at Cotton Court Hotel and the Midnight Shift & Bar. Bring you fur-babies for pet-friendly treats and adult specialty drinks in the courtyard. A portion of proceeds will go to Haven Animal Care Shelter.

Western art and gear collectors will have an opportunity to purchase new art pieces and meet the contributing artists and craftsmen at the Summer Stampede Western Art and Gear Show from 6 – 11 p.m. at the National Ranching Heritage Center (NRHC).

History comes to life at the Ranch every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Ranch host volunteers will be in the historical park to answer questions, perform living history demonstrations, and give tours of selected structures. Check out the National Ranching Heritage Center Facebook page to stay up to date on what’s happening each Saturday.

Corb Lund has received multiple CCMA, Juno, and international award nominations and wins. A rural Albertan hailing from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a long family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Lund is embracing both his Western heritage and his indie rock past through his music. Lund has been known to filter a range of cowboy themes past and present through his unique lens – from rough-and-tumble tales of lawless frontier saloons to the somber realities of running a modern family ranch.

Known as the King of Tex-Mex rock and roll, Joe “King” Carrasco, creates a stylistic borderland of pop rock and Latin rhythms. His cross-cultural stew blends cumbias, vamp, salsa, surf, reggae, blues, and Latin-tinged polkas. 

The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly production, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. You can get your tickets through Select-A-Seat or on the Moonlight Musicals’ website.

Clay Walker is live on the outdoor stage at Cook’s Garage! Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show will begin at 8 p.m.

Anjelah Johnson-Reyes became a sensation with her viral video, “Nail Salon,” which led to her stand-up, television, and film opportunities. Anjelah also appeared in many programs, specials, and films for Comedy Central, Netflix, Hulu, etc. 

Built around rich vocal harmony, vivid emotional writing and a smooth fusion of country, rock and pop, Lady A has long been a model of mainstream success.

Uncle Kracker is coming to the outdoor stage at Cook’s Garage! The doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.

Let the festivities begin!

The event is free admission and pet-friendly!

Join all your favorite characters from Madagascar in music as they escape the zoo at The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences!

Inspired by the beloved films, the romantic and adventure-filled new musical ANASTASIA is on a journey to Lubbock at last!

The Road Goes on Forever… until it doesn’t. Legendary Texas songwriter and entertainer Robert Earl Keen wraps up 41 years on the road with his 2022 Final Tour, I’m Comin’ Home: 41 Years On The Road. 

24K Magic is the #1 Bruno Mars tribute show in the country! Their high energy show will have you singing and dancing to all the hits you know and love, like “Uptown Funk”, “Locked Out of Heaven” – and, of course – “24K Magic.”
