Cottonmouth, Texas and the History of Popular Music in Dallas: Echoes and Reverberations


The Kessler Theater

Writer and spoken word artist Jeffrey Liles (aka Cottonmouth, Texas) has been a part of the Dallas music community for over thirty years, as a musician, DJ, critic, promoter, and currently the artistic director at The Kessler Theater. On this particular evening he will attempt to tell the story of how popular music has defined the culture of the city, from the early days of historic venues like the Sportatorium, Longhorn Ballroom and Bronco Bowl, to the emergence of the punk rock scene at the Hot Klub and DJ’s, to the reclamation of the Deep Ellum neighborhood, and finally to where we are now. It promises to be as much a historical revelation as it is a storytelling adventure. Two younger emerging Texas songwriters will perform short sets beforehand–Special Guests: Cameron Ray and Bayleigh Cheek.
