If you’re reading this, you’re probably the type who wouldn’t mind making a living playing video games — and you are not alone. Friday through Sunday, you and I will be able to catch a glimpse of the people whose career path includes moving controllers or mice with maximum efficiency. What a life.
Nobody likes paying for concerts. Free concerts are a good thing. When a free concert involves an iconic, sorta-grungy 2000s alt-rock band, it’s really a no-brainer.
Lifehouse will be performing November 3 at the 3rd Annual Festival at the Switchyard, an all-day event that features local and national acts.
The band is indisputably best-known for their 2002 single “Hanging by a Moment,” a song that has played in just about every location imaginable for the past 10 years. They will be preceded by Sister Hazel, famous for their infectious toe-tapper “All for You.”
Three years and countless construction delays have come and gone — and the Klyde Warren Park over Woodall Rodgers Freeway is finally set for its grand opening. All events are 100% free (tickets required for The Concert for Dallas):

Future PGA golfers will be competing for a $1 million purse at the Web.com Tour Championship this week at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney. Yes, that’s “championship” – the stakes are high, and you can see it all for 10 bucks a pop.
The Web.com Tour is a precursor to the PGA Tour – a minor league of sorts – the top 25 players at year’s end earn a PGA Tour card for the next season. The Web.com Tour, previously known as the Nationwide Tour, has produced some impressive alumni since its 1990 inception. Current players like Ernie Els, Jim Furyk, Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar, John Daly, and Zach Johnson have all made their rounds on the Web.com Tour.
The Championship rounds will begin this Thursday, October 25 with the final round on Sunday, October 28.
As cliche as it sounds, it is indeed that time of year again. The 2012 HTESC mini-festival will be held on December 14 at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, October 19 and can be purchased through the KDGE website. This year’s price range: $10 to $47.50.
