Mixfest 2010

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-05-19

Mix 96.1 has assembled a lineup that might have your daughter demanding to be dropped off at HemisFair Park on Sunday. If not for American Idol-winner Kris Allen, then possibly for Train (even Mom and Dad might unwittingly know the chorus to “Drops of Jupiter” or “Hey, Soul Sister”), the White Tie Affair (who sing frighteningly catchy songs about partying, like “You Look Better When I’m Drunk”), Miami-based newcomer Tino Coury, pop-punks Mayday Parade (pictured here), or British Virgin Islander Iyaz. Now remember, young ladies: It’s still a school night. $31.96, 3-10pm, HemisFair Park, 200 S. Alamo, mix961.com, ticketmaster.com.
