Jay Janner/American-Statesman – Neil Young and Crazy Horse perform at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Zilker Park on Saturday Oct. 13, 2012.

Fans of Neil Young can go “Down by the River” for a just announced concert from the 70-yr-old folksy rock legend and his band the Promise of the Real at Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels on April 26. The sweet sounds of Lucinda Williams will open the show. Tickets to the show go on sale Friday, March 4 at 10 a.m. More info.

Young, a Canadian, won’t be voting in the upcoming presidential election, but we’re pretty sure the lifelong activist will have at least a few strong opinions.
