We already knew what bands were playing the Midtown Music Showcase this Saturday at Evelyn Hills Shopping Center. Now we know the schedule.

One of the most highly anticipated shows of the fall in Fayetteville is coming up in less than a month. Alabama Shakes are coming to the AMP, and we’ve got four pairs of tickets to give away.

Speaking of concerts, country music legend Willie Nelson is headed to town for a 7 p.m. performance on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at the Walton Arts Center.
