Mystery Monday began in the wake of the late Sarah Elizabeth Campbell's Bummer Night, discontinued after Artz Rib House closed in 2012. What started as a weekly stage to grace for host Christine Albert and, initially, her close friend Campbell, has grown into an incomparable musician's hang featuring marquee names like Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Eliza Gilkyson. Moving into the much larger and recently expanded back room with better sound has made it even more of an event. Albert lays it all on timing. "I asked just as they were wanting to build a music venue. It's been a great relationship."
