DALLAS (KRLD) — Looking for something to do this weekend? KRLD’s Tasha Stevens has some ideas for you and your family!

— Thursdays mean tubing down the Trinity River and checking out cool tunes at the Panther Island Pavilion. “Rockin the River” is a free weekly summer concert series with a cool twist: The stage is right on The Trinity River in the shadow of downtown Fort Worth. You can watch the show from the water or you can bring a chair or a blanket and watch from shore. You can see Brandon Rhyder Thursday night!

It is Loretta Lynn at Bass Hall Saturday night, August 9. Celebrate Loretta’s 50th anniversary as a recording artist with an unforgettable evening of music and stories.

— The Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival is coming to Gexa Saturday night. Korn, Avenged Sevenfold & Asking Alexandria will all be there, so get that black concert shirt out and grab that bottle of Excedrin for all that head banging you’ll be doing.
