Well, you’ve been given a one-time reprieve.

The County Line, 10101 I-10 W., is presenting Two Tons of Steel in a free concert from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 20.

According to the restaurant, “There is no opener and no sponsors … just two hours of FREE music from Two Tons of Steel.  However, County Line’s commitment to the San Antonio Food Bank never stops, so guests are still encouraged to bring canned good donations.”

Free music, a chance to help the Food Bank and plenty of time to enjoy some barbecue. Who could ask for anything more?
