Jaston Williams, Joe Ely & Jo Carol Pierce Set for IS THERE LIFE AFTER LUBBOCK? at Paramount Theatre, 11/9

October 21
11:53 AM 2013

Comedian, actor, storyteller and writer Jaston Williams of Greater Tuna fame is joined on stage by legendary Texas musician Joe Ely as they ponder the question-Is There Life After Lubbock? Don't miss this one superb performance - filled with stories, music and side-splitting humor on Saturday, November 9 at 8pm at the Paramount Theatre.

It's an eternal mystery of Texas life how Lubbock can spawn so many creative people. Described by Williams as "theatrical, but it's not really theatre" and "musical, but it's not really a concert," the show is something like old friends sitting around, swapping stories and songs about the crazy town where they all used to live. Although Williams was not reared in Lubbock, he spent enough time there as a student at Texas Tech to know how living in the high plains of Texas can shape a person.

Named "...one of Texas' best storytellers!" by the Austin American-Statesman and recipient of the 2013 Texas Medal of Arts, don't miss this chance to join Jaston Williams alongside singer-songwriter Joe Ely and special guest Jo Carol Pierce for "an evening filled with poetry, stories (real or otherwise), a few songs and a lot of laughs. Hear about everything from the cocktail mixing airplane pilot to the ocelot in the bedroom. Wear your house-shoes, sip on longnecks and try to help answer the question, Why Lubbock?

Is There Life After Lubbock? plays at the Paramount Theatre for one night only, Saturday, November 9, 2013 at 8pm. Tickets on sale now at AustinTheatre.org, by calling (512) 474-1221 or in person at the Paramount Theatre Box Office.
