Our veterans. Czech immigration. Dance club anniversary. Just having the right to polka on! You can celebrate it all this weekend with the polka dance choices all around Texas. Starting Friday, nothing says America like a county fair where you'll find the Chris Rybak Band performing at the Lee County Fair in Giddings. In the dare to be different Americana division, you have the Brave Combo playing at Abbey Underground in Denton. Another chance to celebrate the band's new CD, Sounds of the Hollow. And try out the new Friday night gone country at SPJST Lodge 88 in Houston with the band Detour. More great country at Othie's in Sealy with Charles & the Fabulous 4.
