What do you get when you combine Texas music with Lone Star beer? The Indie Bash!

The grounds of the former Lone Star Brewery in San Antonio will play host to the big concert, featuring independent Texas musicians from across the state. It will take place October 24.

Fans can win free tickets by visiting  Some of the talent scheduled to perform include Austin’s Ben Kweller, San Antonio’s Charlie Robison and Dallas’ Jonathan Tyler. A total of ten acts will perform on two stages, beginning at 1pm.

“We’re excited to return to the place where it all began for the National Beer of Texas,” said Brad Hittle, marketing director for Pabst Brewing Company. “We hope our fans will not only enjoy listening to some great musical acts, but they’ll also take a few moments to see how we’ve worked to preserve this historic landmark.”

Proceeds from the product sales – including Lone Star beer, of course – will go to the Texas Music Project, a non-profit effort which works in conjunction with the Texas music industry and various state and arts organizations, to help strengthen music education in Texas schools.

The old Lone Star Brewery was shut down in 1996. It is now being restored as a combined residential, commercial, hotel and retail center.  For more information on the concert, visit
