The Look Ahead: Abels vs. Grandalism, Rally for HB602, Jubal Lee Young and Main Street Theater

One of the things that I enjoy the most about The Loop Scoop, is the random stuff that happens because of it. Perhaps all the randomness isn’t due to the site, but now there’s a little online forum for me to dump it. Things such as last night when I was introduced, quite literally, to a musician.

More on this later. Let’s look at tonight and the rest of the weekend. If we need to know about an upcoming event leave a comment, tweet at us (@TheLoopScoop) or email us at


ABELS vs. GRANDALISM at DiverseWorks

Where: DiverseWorks [1117 East Fwy., 77002]
When: Friday, March 11th from 6:00PM to 8:00PM
How much: Free: RSVP on Facebook
Scoop’d from: Imelda

Abels is the most prolific street artist on the scene right now. His is the name I see more often than any other, at least. The Gonzo247 curated Grandalism has featured Gonzo247, Pilot (FX), Asiaoner so far. With ABELS on deck for the next five weeks, you’ll have plenty of time to drop by DiverseWorks to view the art, but the opening festivities are one night only, tonight.


Rally for HB602 – It’s All About the Beer – At Ziggy’s

Where: Montrose [302 Fairview St., 77006]
When: Friday, March 11th from 4:00PM to 6:00PM
How much: $12 side seating; $14 preferred seating
Scoop’d from: Richard

Texas microbrews are looking for a break. HB602 could be just what they’re looking for. Under the bill, sponsored by Jessica Farrar, would allow Texas microbreweries to sell their wares to the public basically putting them on par with vineyards. A vineyard can sell me a bottle of wine after a tour, but Saint Arnold’s can’t con me into buying a six-pack? That’s just ridiculous. Let my people BREW (and then sell to their loving public).

Be at Ziggy’s in Montrose tonight during happy hour to hear from State Representative, Jessica Farrar, about what we can do to help. There will be crawfish, beer, hopefully some picket signage, flaming torches and eventually we’ll storm the castle together (pitchforks optional). OoooOOoooo… Saint Arnold Root Beer Popsicles!! Drop your torches everyone.


Jubal Lee Young at Heights Live!

Where: Heights Presbyterian Church [240 W. 18th St., 77008]
When: Friday, March 11th – Doors at 7:30PM; Show at 8:00PM
How much: $12 Donation suggested
Scoop’d from: Mr. Jubal Lee Young

Last night, I went up to Blanco’s to get my honky tonk fix for the month of March courtesy of Mike Stinson. In between solving Lone Star rebuses, I was introduced to Jubal Lee Young. Purveyor of country and Americana music, he’ll be up at HEIGHTSLive! tonight. We had a good hour chat about music, Muskogee, OK, following in father’s footsteps and any number of conversations that beer on an empty stomach will fuel.

The show starts at 8:00PM at the Heights Presbyterian Church. Funny enough, the organizer of HEIGHTSLive! sent me an email last week asking how he could get their events up on The Loop Scoop. Well, I guess waiting for me to randomly run into one of your scheduled acts around town will do the trick. Probably not the most efficient way, though.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Where: Binz [4617 Montrose Blvd., 77006]
When: March 14th through 18th at 11:30AM
How much: $12 side seating; $14 preferred seating
Scoop’d from: Email

Some of the kiddos get next week off. There’s only so much Blue’s Tubbies (or whatever they’re watching these days) that you can handle. Take them out to the Main Street Theater’s production of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. I’ve had a few of those in the past couple weeks. I didn’t realize I could write a play about it. Fame, here I come.
