Long-time local musician Dustin Garrett will be playing a trifecta of shows over the weekend in Lubbock that you won't want to miss.

If you're from Lubbock, chances are you've seen Garrett perform since he was a young child. I even remember buying his first album at Hastings (Rest in Peace) when I was little. He's been a friend of mine for a long time. In fact, he took me on a date to see Hillary Duff when we were 12 or 13 years old.

Memories!

He isn't around these parts very often these days because he's currently playing music with Grammy Award-winner Rick Trevino and spends most of his weekdays touring. Having him in town on the weekends is a special treat. He puts on a great show, so if you have time please head out to support him.

You'll find him playing at the Back 40 Grill on Friday, July 22nd at 8 p.m. with Electric "Country" Mambo, then The Cactus Theater at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 23rd with Rick Trevino.

If you can't make those shows, you'll still be able to see him at The Funky Door on Sunday, July 24th at 11 a.m. for a brunch show where he'll be playing acoustic solo. Nothing goes better with brunch than great music.

If you aren't familiar with Dustin Garrett, you can find quite a few of his videos on YouTube. The one below was posted about 6 months ago and it's really great. Check him out and remember to continue to support local musicians, businesses and artists as much as possible.

Lubbock is so proud to have so many talented people around and your support means the world to them. Keep making us proud, Dustin!

Texans simply do not hold back when it comes to nicknames, so here's a warning now if you have delicate sensibilities. Some of these names are pretty brutal, perhaps undeserving. Others, well...they walked right into it.
