Paramount Theatre Announces Fall/Winter Performances

Shinyribs, Ira Glass, and Potted Potter all on the horizon

Because it’s never too soon to start planning your future entertainment, you’re going to want to spend some time ogling the Paramount Theatre’s newly announced fall/winter lineup.

Opening the season at Austin's oldest and most old-school glamorous performance venue will be a performance on Sept. 19 by legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash (founding member of the Crosby Stills &... well, you know). Other musicians set to tread the Paramount’s storied boards: Shinyribs, the Flatlanders, Boz Scaggs, Wynton Marsalis, Terry Allen, and Ruthie Foster.

Musical acts aren’t the only ones set to take the stage. The fall/winter season also includes appearances by This American Life host Ira Glass; Egyptian political satirist Bassem Youssef, who was famously inspired by Jon Stewart’s example to start his own (shorter-lived) satirical news program; a taping of The Moth, the wildly popular showcase of first-person storytelling; and a six-night run of Potted Potter, which squeezes all seven Harry Potter books into a shockingly abridged 70 minutes.
