If you’re a fan of live music and West Texas, you should take note that Viva Big Bend is right around the corner. The four-day music festival takes place July 24-28 with shows in Alpine, Marfa, Marathon, Fort Davis, and Terlingua. The eighth annual Viva Big Bend will feature about 50 bands—most of them from around Texas—playing a total of roughly 60 shows in 12 different venues.
