Gary Clark Jr.'s major label debut, Blak and Blu, made plenty of noise last year – landing on Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2012 – and now the Texas bluesman is launching his own music festival in his home state. Maverick Music Festival is set for March 23rd in San Antonio and features Clark Jr. along with the Toadies, Girl in a Coma, Arum Rae and Henry and the Invisibles.
