B Movies and Bad History: Texas Music

Online Program

May 27, 2021 7:00pm - 8:00pm

From singing cowboys to punk rock pioneers, explore Texas music on-screen.

Event Details

In conjunction with the exhibition GUITAR: The Instrument that Rocked the World, explore examples of Texas music as it's been portrayed on film. Enjoy select clips and conversation to help put songs and artists in context. It turns out the reality of Texas music history is richer and more compelling than even the movie mythology makes it out to be.

At B-Movies and Bad History, join experts to watch clips from some of the best (and worst) Texas-centric movies and television shows. Hear behind-the-scenes stories and learn the facts and fiction portrayed on-screen.
