Uncle Lucius Releases New Album With New Eyes

Uncle Lucius fans were thrilled when the band reunited earlier this year after a five-year hiatus and now they are releasing their first new album since they started touring together again.

 

A cathartic comeback album, Like It’s The Last One Left, was written and recorded in Austin and releases on December 8. Easily recognizable is Uncle Lucius’ mix of amped-up Americana and greasy roots-rock, bolstered with string arrangements, adventurous production, and sharp songwriting, says the band’s publicist in a press release. READ MORE about the album, their tour, and their getaways to East Texas.

THIS TIME OF YEAR

Blues Legend Has East Texas Roots

Blues pioneer Huddie Ledbetter, popularly known as “Leadbelly,” died December 6, 1949, in New York City. Born in 1888, the son of a sharecropper, Leadbelly grew up in Louisiana and East Texas before striking out on his own in 1901 to live the life of a musician. He eventually made his way to Dallas, where he met songster Blind Lemon Jefferson playing on the streets of Deep Ellum. READ MORE

ART & CULTURE

Haikus and Horizons Exhibit Runs Through December 20

See Haikus & Horizons on exhibition through December 20 at Longview Museum of Art (LMFA). Husband and wife artists Dewane Hughes and Alexis Serio bring an eccentric exhibition to LMFA. Although they are both Professors of Art at the University of Texas at Tyler and share an impressive list of gallery exhibitions across the globe, such as notably the Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University and as far as the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum in Japan, that is where their likenesses end. Haikus & Horizons is an exhibition of combining forces and contrasting elements, a Ying and Ying of art pairing. This juxtaposition of Serio’s serene landscapes and Hughes’ welded sculptures creates unique talks between the works of art and thus a deeper connection of communication with the viewer. READ MORE
