Robert Earl Keen and The Flatlanders
Monday, August 27, 7:30 pm
"The road goes on forever..." It's not always easy to sum up a career—let alone a life's ambition—so succinctly, but those five words from Robert Earl Keen's calling-card anthem just about do it. Now three decades on from the release of his debut album—with eighteen other records to his name, thousands of shows under his belt and still no end in sight to the road ahead—Keen remains as committed to and inspired by his muse as ever. He's blazed a peer, critic, and fan-lauded trail that's earned him living-legend (not to mention pioneer) status in the Americana music world.

Monday, September 10, 7:30 pm - A Kitchen Angels Benefit Concert
It is well known that the B-52s are The World's Greatest Party Band. And nearly forty years and over twenty million albums into their career, there can be no doubt as to why they remain one of rock music's most beloved and enduring bands. As they take their party-music revolution into the 21st century the B-52s show no signs of slowing down, serving up their own unique blend of music and showmanship to millions of fans around the world.
Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters
Thursday, September 13, 7:30 pm
Though Robert Plant has returned to the Welsh borders, he retains the sensibility—and the soul—of an itinerant troubadour. His diverse musical points of reference stand out like pins on a map, from Austin, Texas to Timbuktu, Mali. Plant treasures transience. On his second Nonesuch album, Carry Fire, Plant reflects on the experiences, the emotions, and the sounds of where he’s been, and he ruminates on where he—and our world—might be headed. Bittersweet songs of love remembered and of time passing are juxtaposed against cautionary tales of people and nations that have failed to learn the familiar lessons of history.
