Pat Green, who has become something of a superstar in Texas and is building a following around the country, will finish out the Magic Springs and Crystal Falls Theme Park summer concert series with a show Saturday, Sept. 3, at Timberwood Amphitheater.
Green’s concert begins at 8 p.m. Admission to the show is free with a regular park admission. An after-5 p.m. one-time concert admission is $24.99. Reserve seats are available for an additional $5.
Green has filled everything throughout Texas from honky tonks to the Astrodome. In the vein of Jimmy Buffet, his loyal fan base seems willing to travel miles and miles to see and hear Green.
Based in Austin, Green has been compared with other Texas singer-songwriters like Robert Earl Keen, Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker and Ray Wylie Hubbard. His hits include “Three Days,” “Elvis,” “Lucky Ones,” “One Thing,” “Run,” “Threadbare Gypsy Soul,” “Carry On” and more.
