Terri Hendrix is a pioneering Texas songwriter who spins sorrow into joy and wrings wisdom from the blues, with a poetic grace and engaging melodic flair that has endeared her to three generations of loyal fans around the globe.

A classically trained vocalist and accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Terri is a truly prolific songwriter — having averaged nearly an album a year going all the way back to her 1996 debut, Two Dollar Shoes. Terri is currently in the midst of running a “sonic marathon” she calls “Project 5,” which by the time she finishes it will comprise four thematically-linked albums and a deeply personal memoir about her lifelong battle with epilepsy.

Her shows at the Stateside Theatre – where she’s backed by her amazing band and the mighty Lloyd Maines – always sell out, so be sure to grab tickets early.

This February, witness Delbert’s signature rhythm and blues sound with a newer jazz influence inspired by Johnny Mercer, Nat King Cole and other legendary crooners. His band, the Self-Made Men, provide a hard-driving rhythm section, powerful guitars and innovative piano, accented by punched-up horns that take the performance to a whole other level.

Arlo GuthrieArlo Guthrie:
Alice’s Restaurant – Back By Popular Demand Tour

Thursday, February 21, 2019 | 8:00pm
Paramount Theatre

When legendary folk music icon Arlo Guthrie took to the road to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of his seminal song “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree,” he was incredibly moved by the feedback from fans. Alice’s Restaurant — Back By Popular Demand Tour will coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the feature film Alice’s Restaurant, originally released in 1969.

However listeners interpret the quintessential tune, you can rest assured that people of all different walks of life come together to sing that famous chorus.

Woodward and BernsteinWoodward & Bernstein:
Power, The Press, and The Presidency

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 | 8:00pm
Paramount Theatre

From breaking the Watergate story that led to President Nixon’s resignation to Bob Woodward’s revealing new book about Donald Trump and his presidency, few journalists have impacted American history like Pulitzer Prize winners Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

For more than 45 years, their collective works have focused on the enduring themes of Watergate: secret government, abuses of power and the role of the press.

Now they’ve joined together for a historic speaking event to point out parallels from our past and provide unparalleled insights for our future—pulling back the curtain on Washington as only Woodward and Bernstein can.

Moderated by Evan Smith, the CEO and co-founder of The Texas Tribune, a pioneering nonprofit, nonpartisan digital news organization that specializes in deep coverage of Texas politics and public policy. Evan is also the host of Overheard with Evan Smith, a weekly half-hour interview program that airs on PBS stations around the country.

Anita HillAnita Hill:
Speaking Truth to Power

Sunday, March 24, 2019 | 7:00pm
Paramount Theatre

Anita Hill made sexual harassment a national issue by testifying at the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas in 1991. Her bravery empowered thousands of women to bring their own sexual harassment lawsuits and helped revolutionize the treatment of women in the workplace.

Today, Ms. Hill continues her mission and trailblazing efforts by fighting for institutional change to increase parity and protection for women and minorities.

Ms. Hill is Professor of Social Policy, Law and Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies at Brandeis University and she also leads the Hollywood Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, composed of leading executives in the entertainment industry. The committee is examining the pattern of sexual abuse in Hollywood that the #MeToo campaign has exposed since Harvey Weinstein was accused of abuse in October 2017.

Be part of an unforgettable, impactful night when Ms. Hill speaks about lessons learned and progress won since her testimony, how institutions can step up to promote equality—from colleges holding students and fraternities more accountable, to companies punishing abusive employees and executives. And why it’s more important than ever before to keep fighting for vigorous enforcement of the law and creative positive change within organizations.
