Terlingua Two-Step


Editorial Review

Whether or not you've ever seen a yellow rose or remembered the Alamo, the Texas State Society's annual Terlingua Two-Step is one of the best parties in town. It seems like every Texas ex-pat, Longhorn graduate and country music fan in the area comes out to whoop, holler, drink a few beers and two-step the night away to stars like Jerry Jeff Walker, Asleep at the Wheel and Robert Earl Keene, who've performed in recent years.

This year's event, held at the Clarendon Ballroom, features Austin singer Dale Watson, who plays a rootsy style of honky-tonk that's as authentic as his hard-living ways. If you have a fondness for Johnny Cash or Merle Haggard, don't miss this alt-country outsider.
