University of Texas at San Antonio senior Andrew Willis usually has his small caliber pistol on him a few times a week. 

“It’s mostly just if I’m going to be in a part of town that is a little more shady,” says Willis. “It’s the same premise as, you know, wearing your seatbelt, taking vitamins or having health insurance. You’d rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.”

A three-night music festival is coming soon to the University of Texas at San Antonio.  It's happening Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 

"Really, it's a multiple day celebration of the music of our time," says Ethan Wickman, who teaches music at UTSA

The festival's premise is that there's plenty of music written in the last 400 years worth hearing, something that Wickman enthusiastically agrees.
