5 Things You Have To Do This Week

Lubbock-born Buddy Holly’s destiny became clear the night he saw Elvis Presley in 1955. From there, he developed a signature rockabilly style as both a solo artist and frontman for The Crickets. By 1957, Holly and the Crickets were among the acts bridging the racial divide through music. Penned by Alan Janes, the jukebox musical Buddy follows the early rock ‘n’ roll influencer in the less than two-year period between his quick rise and untimely death by plane crash on February 3, 1959. This performance marks the 56th anniversary of “The Day the Music Died.” $34.50-$74.50, 7:30pm Tuesday, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org.
