One of the bands featured in this year’s Rock the Desert Christian music festival is Todd Agnew.

>> Texas-bred singer/songwriter Todd Agnew isn’t afraid to ask questions — even when it comes to church and faith.

And though he doesn’t find all the answers, Agnew uses his talent as a platform to rock and groove while pointing listeners to God and the Bible.

The creativity of his latest release, “Better Questions,” shows just how gifted the Christian musician truly is.


>> Rock the Desert ELEV8 2007 is Friday and Saturday at 2000 N. FM 1788.

>> Advance tickets are $20 or $25 at the gate and include all concerts for both days.
