Yankees and Left Coast hipsters might snort at the idea of a dirt-floor arena churned by untamed horses and madass bulls. Adrenaline surges, heart in your mouth, kids with eyes as big as saucers. Three hours later, they tow a circular stage onto the battleground and atop it, spinning 360, deep country. Last Sunday, Loretta Lynn; next Sunday, Dwight Yoakam. This SXSW weekend, some small-town longhair, his sister on piano, and fellow Texans playing Lone Star standards. Go once and you’ll return every year.

– Raoul Hernandez
