Terry Allen: Juarez & Lubbock on Everything
The Paramount Theatre and KUTX Live present Terry Allen Juarez and Lubbock on Everything Doors @ 7pm | Show @ 8pm Terry Allen is a Lubbock-born singer-songwriter whose music is but one facet of a larger artistic identity. Allen is into everything: sculpture, theater, mixed media installation, painting, writing, performance art. There's nothing commercial about him. Like a Tom Waits of the American Southwest, Allen is daring, dark, funny, devoted to language, and way, way ahead of the creative curve. To celebrate the 2016 deluxe reissues of his first two landmark albums, Allen will recreate them live on the Paramount stage in this one-night-only, exclusive Austin performance. The first act will find Terry performing "Juarez" solo, and for the second act, he'll be joined by an all-star band featuring Lloyd Maines, Glenn Fukunaga, Bukka Allen, Davis McLarty, and more for "Lubbock on Everything." On view at The Contemporary Austin the Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Park at Laguna Gloria, 3809 W. 35th Street as of December 17th. "Road Angel," 2016, a bronze cast of a 1953 Chevrolet coupe, embodies a range of emotional and nostalgic associations with the American automobile. The artist has placed this three-wheeled car far from any road, resting haphazardly amid the trees, as if the vehicle has careened off its path or the stage were set for a lovers' tryst. Road Angel features an ongoing audio archive: recordings by musicians, artists, and writers emanate as if from the car's radio at random intervals, recounting songs and oral histories lived in the backseat and behind the wheel.
