A little research will show you that Lubbock does get a disproportionate amount of shows.  I've got a little video explanation for how this came about. Get ready for a whirlwind trip through the late 70's to now.

So how did Lubbock get "on the map" for concerts and where did the most recent surge come from?  You'll probably be surprised at both answers.  Plus "the one question I get asked every time a show is potentially coming to town".
