Courthouse Nights is a monthly music series on the 3rd Friday of every month from April to August.  It is a family-friendly, free event centered around community on the Caldwell County Courthouse lawn.

On August 18th, MoHA and Arcos Dance travel to Lockhart to provide complimentary pop-up programming to the final event of the season featuring Heartbyrne (a talking heads tribute).

Traveling in Peanut (the bus), MoHA will be screening True Stories and showcasing Ether Dust in partnership with Arcos. True Stories: A Film About a Bunch of People in Virgil Texas is a 1986 American satirical musical comedy film directed by David Byrne, who stars alongside John Goodman, Swoosie Kurtz, and Spalding Gray. The majority of the film's music is supplied by Talking Heads.

Ether Dust by Arcos, a highly mobile version of ARCOS' interactive “infinity loop” performance-installation. It uses a single mobile phone on a tripod to broadcast slightly delayed video of the participants' movements onto a large inflatable screen, with feedback creating visual layers that recede in time. This delay loop mechanism allows people to observe, move, or dance with their past (and future) selves. The whole system is powered by a solar generator.
