After going without a four-legged mayor for several years, the unincorporated community of Lajitas has a new goat at the helm. Clay Moore Henry was elected earlier this month to lead the Brewster County desert town on the western edge of Big Bend National Park. He’s a direct descendent of the town’s first and famously beer-drinking goat mayor, Clay Henry.
The Texas music scene is heading out west later this month—or at least a big chunk of it. About 55 Texas acts are making the trek to Alpine, Marfa, Fort Davis, Marathon, and Lajitas for the Viva Big Bend Music Festival, taking place July 22-27.
