John T. Davis will be at Waterloo Records for a special book signing of his recent release The Flatlanders: Now It's Now Again.
The Austin author, music journalist and CultureMap columnist traces the band's musical journey from the house on 14th Street in Lubbock to their 2013 sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall. He explores why music was — and still is — so important in Lubbock and how earlier West Texas musicians such as Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, as well as a touring Elvis Presley, inspired the young Ely, Gilmore, and Hancock.
Refreshments and the event will be provided by Shiner.
