The Look Ahead: 1.27.10: Free Press with Bun B and Others at Fitz, Tango and Dark Films
We’re dissolving two of our favorite columns, Your Regular Scoop of Houston and Procrastinator’s Plan, and giving them a new look this year. Gone is the single serving of events in Houston. Here is a five-times-a-week battery of things to do. We will publish a few events every morning. If we’ve missed something let us know with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet at us @TheLoopScoop.

Free Press Houston kicks off their 8th year in existence with a pretty righteous lineup.

Don’t miss it.
Tango Buenos Aires—Fire and Passion of Tango
We brought you Giuseppe Verdi’s Don Carlo yesterday, so once again the in spirit of mixing it up—we present the Fire and Passion of Tango. Argentina’s got a few things going for it, one being the highest literacy rate in South America, and two—the Tango. The latter you can experience right here in Houston this weekend. I recommend the trip downtown.
Dark Frames: Animations From Devious and Daring Places
This promises to be an exciting if not dreary series of short films. You can expect Troy Morgan’s Dragon, Salise Hughes’ Tidal Wave, Jen Sachs’ The Velvet Tigress, Martha Colburn’s Myth Labs, Carson Mell’s Field Notes from Dimension X, Davy Jones’ Wild Blood, David OReilly’s Please Say Something, Lilli Carré’s How She Slept At Night, Brent Green’s Weird Carolers, Audrey Lam’s Underground, and Cosmo Segurson’s Sincerely Yours.
