Music minute: Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge

Posted 9:07am on Wednesday, May. 16, 2012

Generally shows are worth seeing because of the bands playing them, but in this instance, it's more about the venue: Saturday, during ArtsGoggle on the Near Southside, the public will have its first chance to step inside Bill Smith's Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge. He's lined up two respected North Texas acts -- Seryn and Calhoun -- to showcase the space during its "soft opening." Seryn will play at 8 p.m. and Calhoun (featuring new bassist Danny Balis) will play at 6 p.m. Admission is free.

Fort Worth rockers Neptune Locals celebrate the release of their new, five-track EP Origins on Saturday at Lola's Saloon. The band will be joined by Bum Lucky, the Effinays and Mix Magyk. Music gets going at 9 p.m. and cover is $7 for the over-21 crowd, $10 for the unders. A free copy of Origins is included with the price of admission (and it will also be for sale for $5).

We now have a new, simpler way for you to enter and search for events, at listings.dfw.com. As always, when you submit an event to appear online, it will also be available for us in our print publication. But now you can simply enter your event and provide an email address, rather than creating a separate account and registering. Our new listings tool is still a work in progress, so we appreciate your patience as we fine-tune it. Please contact us at hsvokos@dfw.com if you have any questions or concerns.
