On Saturday, July 28th at 9 PM, the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington, Long Island will host a concert with Texas blues rockers THE FLATLANDERS featuring JOE ELY, JIMMIE DALE GILMORE, and BUTCH HANCOCK.

The windy, expansive universe of West Texas is distilled from just two elements, the land and the sky.  They keep one another balanced in symmetrical counterpoint.  In this most unadorned of landscapes, sunlight and shadow charge the Plains with improbably transcendental power.  This is the universe that gave rise to the music of the FLATLANDERS.

Today, the three prime component members of the Flatlanders- Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely and Butch Hancock - are better known than the band which first united them.  The Flatlanders was the breeding ground for three extraordinary bodies of work, and the pull which the band continues to exert on both its alumni and its fans remains strong today.  The band boasts not only the combined songwriting wattage of the three principals, but influences ranging from Jimmie Rodgers to the Beatles to Mexican border radio, along with the curious synthesis of folk music and lyrical sophistication that marked the group.  Respected solo artists in their own rights, the Flatlandersí legacy remains a proud part of their common history.

Tickets for this performance are $32.50 general public ($24.50 for IMAC Members) and can be obtained by calling IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS. Tickets can also be purchased at the theater from noon to 6PM, Tuesdays to Fridays, and after 2PM on the day of the show.
