Lubbock’s Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely and Butch Hancock have been friends for almost 40 years, and members of that not-really-a-band, life-of-its-own musical entity known as The Flatlanders for nearly as long. Their almost-annual fall shows at the Paramount are showcases of master songwriters at work, none more so than last year’s edition when they were joined for the first time by opening act Dan Penn, who's returning once more to open for the Panhandle legends.

Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Orange Is the New Barack.

Ray Wylie Hubbard's Birthday Bash Saturday, November 10, 2018 8:00PM   ·   More Info »
<b>Ray Wylie Hubbard's Birthday Bash</b>

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.
