Best Little Whore House in Texas

April 17-19; 24-26

This happy-go-lucky view of small-town vice and state-wide political side-stepping recounts the good times and the demise of the Chicken Ranch, known since the 1850s as one of the better pleasure palaces in all of Texas. The rural community of Gilbert has long tolerated, secretly relished, and certainly patronized Miss Mona's cosy homelike bordello. Governors, senators, mayors, and even victorious college football teams-sponsored by an alumnus-frequented the Chicken Ranch until that puritan nemesis Watchdog focused his television cameras and righteous indignation on the institution.

Grace Askew

April 18

At the wild age of 22, Grace left six generations of Memphis roots behind to find her voice - what she found was far more than a delicately destructive sound. Invoking the spirits of the cross roads and imbibing the spirits of the heartland, this Tennessee tumbleweed found a home with the salt of the earth.

Her songs are their stories - they are a mausoleum to hearts broken along the way and a shrine to the poignantly mundane - hemmed with deep compassion and an unapologetic vulnerability. A born-again rambler baptized by the road, she was destined by her very name.
