“Geechy Guy” and the Better Halves Come to Shelter Theater

By David Johanssen

The Better Halves are an Austin-based husband-and-wife duo reminiscent of June Carter and Johnny Cash. Jimmy Joe and Chrissie have been a staple at one of Austin’s largest venues for over a decade, where their funny and touching duets—using clever lyrics and real boy-girl banter—uplift audiences with laughter and knowing nods.

Jimmy Joe has a terrific talent for storytelling (one of his “car songs” was featured on NPR’s Car Talk), while wife Chrissie’s whimsical, melodic songwriting earned her a spot on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. Playing rousing Chet Atkins-influenced instrumentals (including one featuring four hands on one guitar), they really know how to wow audiences. “Their guitar harmonies are amazing, their vocals blend so well together, and their lyrics are so thoughtfully put together. The Better Halves’ songs just make me happy,” raves a fan from Houston, Texas. We think you’ll agree!

Tickets are available at the Biblioteca and online at for this winter’s feel-good live concert with The Better Halves on Saturday, February 17 at 7pm.

If you’re looking to laugh, Geechy Guy performs his hilarious “Dirty Joke Show,” exclusively at Shelter Theater this week. Veteran of The Tonight Show and dozens of Las Vegas and cruise-ship stages, Geech returns with lots of new material, offering a rare opportunity to see a real star at work! In the first half of Geech’s show, audiences will hear his family-rated jokes, but after the break, get ready for raunch as Geech trots out “The Dirty Joke Show.” You’ll laugh ’til you’re blue in the, well, you get it…

Tickets available at Biblioteca and online at
