The Look Ahead: 48 Go Green Screenings, Dan Dyer and John Palmer

The banks are on holiday for Presidents Day, which begs the question, why aren’t we all given the day off. While the rest of us toil away at the little things, why don’t we take the chance to look forward a couple days down the line. What is there to do? What can’t I miss? What the heck’s a free lunch?

Last weekend, filmmakers around Houston rushed to get a project done. They had 48 hours to come up with a script, cast actors, set up locations, shoot, cut and edit a film with take on the environment. What were the results of their hard work? You’re going to have to come out to Talento de Bilingue Houston to find out.

Dan Dyer at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck

Where: Upper Kirby [2425 Norfolk St., 77098]
When: Sunday, February 27th at 6:00PM
How much: $15
Scoop’d from: Facebook

From The Mucky Duck – “Dyer’s soul-revivalist live performance draws from a wealth of influences, including Dr. John, Donny Hathaway, and Bill Withers, and a lengthy catalog of songs, many recorded, but still unreleased. The audience is treated to a special brand of commotion as Dyer switches from piano to guitar, sometimes performing with a boyish grin, and other times with a perspiring concentration, which inevitably leads to groups of women swooning and swaying.”

John Ross Palmer February Open Studio

Where: The Heights [1218 Heights Blvd., 77008]
When: Sunday, February 27th from 2:00PM to 4:00PM
How much: Free

We follow John Palmer on Twitter, but that’s about as deep as our relationship goes. Thankfully his “Open Studio” comes with an open invite. For two hours on Sunday afternoon you’ll get a chance to hob knob with some “arties” from Houston with a glass of champagne in your hand to check out Palmer’s latest works.
