Generation X is known as being the generation of slackers, the cynical and the disaffected, but they’re also the MTV Generation, and they demand excellence in their music. As a new rock music culture emerges, one defined by fans and artists rather than labels and MTV, Loudwire presents the Gen-X Summer concert tour featuring performances from Buckcherry, P.O.D., Lit and Alien Ant Farm inside the Golden Nugget’s on Friday, Aug. 10, in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Sold-out concert … Local country singer star Tracy Byrd and band Book of Days were a huge draw for our fair city last Friday evening, July 20.

In the audience were Marci and George Brown, Dona Johnson, Elizabeth Waddill, Mary Jane Benning, Doug Fair, Stephanie and Eric Flatten, Eric Meadows, and Becky and Jerry Conn in from Austin, to name a few.

David Harris is infatuated with Bolivar Peninsula. From the Midwest, Harris found his way down south and landed on Bolivar 21 years ago and became a fishing guide. After working 300 trips every year for 16 years, it was time for something new — Bolivar promotion.

“It’s so laid back,” said Harris. “Bolivar is an undiscovered gem. Where else in Texas can you drive golf carts, vehicles and camp right on the beach, and it’s populated enough to run to a restaurant or run to the store.”
