Lincoln On The Streets Presents Jamey Johnson And Blackberry Smoke With Ella Langley

Jamey Johnson is coming to downtown Lincoln. Johnson is just as comfortable mopping up the tears on the bar room floor with an old Hank Williams-style ballad as he is tearing the roof off with a honky-tonk juggernaut. He will be joined by special guest Blackberry Smoke and Ella Langley.

Friday 7 p.m.; Tickets start at $56 with fees

Greater Tuna

Broadcasting from radio station OKKK (275 watts) its two broadcasters, Thurston Wheelis and Aries Struvie, introduce us to Texas’ third smallest town Tuna, Texas, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of Tuna citizens-men, women, children and animals alike-are all portrayed by only two actors, make for a quick-changing, side-splitting, hilarious evening of theatre!

Friday and Saturday 7:30 p.m., Sunday 2 p.m.; $10 Fri. & Sat., $5 Sun.
