Additional Information


Austin favorite Jaston Williams of Greater Tuna fame is back with a new darkly funny solo performance. When mysterious lights appeared over Lubbock, Texas in 1951, people wondered aloud whether they were part of some government plot, an invasion by the Russians or just seeing space aliens out to abduct Francine Whitharrel’s Persian cat.

In I Saw The Lights, you will hear from the preacher with too much sense of humor (even for a Methodist), the hippie whose girlfriend longs to become a Comanche, a socialite from Connecticut who holds grudges against trees, and the cowboy with a chronic fear of water. All in all, nine variant souls are drawn together by the inexplicable and are forever bonded through their humanity and humor.

This virtual show will be streamed live from the State Theatre on Friday, January 29, 2021 at 7pm. The concert must be watched live. No viewing options available afterward.
