Austin American-Statesman - - MOVIES & LIFE - — Pa­trick Cald­well

The Flat­landers at the Para­mount The­atre. The 1998 re­union of brightly burn­ing Lub­bock lights Joe Ely, Jim­mie Dale Gilmore and Butch Han­cock is one of the best re­union sto­ries in a mu­sic scene that’s full of them. De­fy­ing all odds, ev­ery­thing the Flat­landers have put out since reteam­ing not only matches but ex­ceeds the band’s early ’70s hey­day — with last year’s ‘Hills and Val­leys’ stand­ing as yet an­other in­stant coun­try clas­sic. With the Green­cards. 8 p.m. $33.50$84.50. 713 Congress Ave. www. austinthe­
