Who says Austin gets to have all the celebrity fun — especially this time of year? Mya is throwing a party in Dallas to celebrate the release of her eighth studio album, Smoove Jones, and you’re invited.
The Grammy Award winner chose Big D as the only city for a release party, held March 12 at 10 pm, at Hard Rock Cafe. Tickets to the public event, which range from $11 to $103, are on sale now. Only those 21 and up can attend.
The sultry R&B singer, who hasn’t toured on her own since 2007, will perform music from her new album as well some classics. Naturally it’s not only about the music; there is merch. Fans can meet Mya and purchase CDs for $10 or calendars for $20. (Do people buy CDs and calendars anymore?)
The Dallas party takes place just a week before Mya performs live on the Outdoor Stage at Ladybird Lake at the SXSW Festival in Austin, on March 20.
