Fingerpistol's 2013 Fully Loaded Tour comes to the Chisholm Trail Ballroom in Lockhart, Texas, "The Barbecue Capital of Texas."
Lockhart has four major barbecue restaurants. Dr. Eugene Clark Library is the oldest operating public library in Texas. Lockhart was also the subject of an article by the architectural historian and critic Colin Rowe, first published in "Architectural Record" in 1957, and republished in the collection of his writings "As I Was Saying" (1996). Rowe sees Lockhart as a "curiously eloquent" example of a Victorian post-frontier American town.
The 1996 Christopher Guest comedy film Waiting for Guffman and the 1993 drama What's Eating Gilbert Grape were filmed partly in Lockhart, including the historic courthouse square. Also, the city's Wal-Mart store was featured in the 2000 film Where the Heart Is. Lockhart has played host to many film sets as this quaint small town is located within miles of Austin. Productions filmed in Lockhart include: The Faculty, Temple Grandin, Waking Life, Secondhand Lions, Stop-Loss, Where the Heart Is, Waiting for Guffman, The Newton Boys, Rolling Kansas, The Great Waldo Pepper, She Fought Alone, The Only Thrill, Ball & Chain, The Garage, Altitude Falling, Hard Promises, A Small Town in Texas, Screen Door Jesus, Abrupt Decision, Angora Ranch, Theft,Bernie and more.
Sounds like a tremendous place to dance to some country music, doesn't it?
