Review for Robert Earl Keen: 

Following the success of his 2018 sold-out Christmas run, Keen and his band are expanding the tour to more cities than ever before. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Keen’s theme for this year’s tour is Countdown to Christmas: Lunar Tunes & Looney Times. He and his band will pay homage to the space race and all things celestial in an out-of-this-world evening of family holiday fun.

“This show will turn  on the psychedelactic jukebox and light up the tree of tranquility!” Keen adds. “The countdown begins now!”

Opening the tour is Austin-based, swamp-pop-soul supergroup Shinyribs.
