In case you needed more stuff to worry about...

Amarillo, TX - A bug that transmits a deadly parasite is making its way across Texas, and researchers at Texas A&M University are asking for help to track it.

The insect known as the 'kissing bug' is normally found in Mexico and other parts of Central America, but their presence in Texas is becoming more prominent. That is why scientists are asking citizens across the state to keep an eye out for them.

The kissing bug is a nasty looking insect and it can give the kiss of death in bite form to humans, dogs and other mammals. "It can be fatal," said Dr. Martin Pearson, a veterinarian at Noah's Ark Pet Hospital. "It almost always is."

If you don't know, I LOVE live music. I'm out at shows all the time. And Of course I do the Borderline Podcast highlighting artists. (Shamless Self Promotion). I came across this story out of Minneapolis.

Here's the story via Twistedsifter

It all started when eight-year-old Dylan Spoering put a sign on his front lawn promoting his free piano concert on 12 July 2014.

Neighbor and fellow musician Thomas Rehbein noticed Dylan's sign and posted it to Facebook saying:

"I have no idea who Dylan Spoering is, but he made this sign and put it out in his front yard, which I saw while biking home. Wouldn't it be cool if a bunch of people showed up for his free concert?

The Facebook event took off and word of the concert spread quickly. Despite the rain, hundreds showed up to provide their support.

Dylan did his part, playing several pieces from his elementary music books. The 10-minute concert was even broadcast live on USTREAM where it has been viewed over 28,000 times! You can see the full stream here. At the end of the performance Dylan got an amazing ovation from the crowd. Check it out below.

Way to go Dylan!
