Capitol Steps
Capitol Steps
At long last, the Capitol Steps are steps from the Capitol! They began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Orange Is the New Barack. They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on NPR stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.

Ray Wylie Hubbard
Ray Wylie Hubbard's Birthday Bash
As any fan of the Hubbard canon knows, the devil pops up in his songs a lot — nearly as often as all of Hubbard’s wise-cracking blackbirds, lyrical and musical nods to Lightnin’ Hopkins, bad-ass women, and a myriad of other grifters, ruffians, and scrappy cats of the gnarly and general lowdown variety. He’s now even worked his way up to top billing on the acclaimed songwriter’s latest, Tell the Devil I’m Getting There as Fast as I Can, another modern classic from the iconic Texas outlaw, and we look forward to hearing highlights from his whole career at another edition of his annual birthday bash at Paramount.

Because every note on it confirms this truth: It’s Ruthie’s time. Last time she played the Paramount was for a near-capacity crowd at her last album release show. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for us this time.
