The Moody Theatre got REK'd

"Wow! A hot December night. No, REALLY, it was a hot ass Christmas show with Robert Earl Keen. The temperature outside was pretty warm for December and inside the ACL Live at The Moody Theatre it was smokin' hot.

Have you been to a show at The Moody Theatre yet? Whether or not you live in Austin, this really needs to be a music destination for you. Even on this evening, with the breeze blowing, we met a couple that had made the trip from San Antonio, TX. to see R.E.K. It was their first time to enjoy a live music performance at The Moody. I was happy to direct them to the upper levels to check out the photos and memorabilia that The Moody Theatre proudly houses. Something I highly recommend for everyone to go check out.

In fact, as I sit here writing this, I can't think of any place better for a music memorabilia facility than The Moody Theatre. I think they should expand the collection.

On this night Robert Earl Keen made his return to Austin, my second opportunity to see his performance since his CD release party for 'Ready for Confetti'. Talk about putting on a show, this man really knows how to do a Christmas party. With the stage decorated like a great Christmas wonderland and the band dressed like they were ready to have fun! You know that if the band is dressed up like characters you wouldn't believe. The King Robert Earl, the Sheik, a couple of elves, Ebenezer, and a special appearance by none other than Santa himself! It's was a great show."
