You’re probably familiar with their music. If not, there’s a video just above. At this point, you’ve more than likely already made the decision to head to the show. However, just in case there’s a few undecideds out there, and there are, otherwise we wouldn’t have a year’s worth of presidential campaigns; I’ve added this item to the list. Also, it’s a favor to Paul.

With twelve bucks admission to a small venue, the quality of music in that video, and more than a few positive recommendations; I can’t see why anyone’d miss this. If I can convince the wife, I’m there.


Claws. Claus. Clause. An Art Happening by Tra` Slaughter

Scoop’d from: Facebook

Claws. Claus. Clause. An Art Happening by Tra` Slaughter, will feature over 40 artists from in and around Houston. All exhibited work will fall in a range from small, intricate fine art to large-scale, indoor and outdoor installation projects, all themed on the words “Claws, Claus, Clause” In addition to the fine art exhibit, the happening will also feature a staged performance piece written and directed by Tra` Slaughter, Sean McWilliams and Dom Bam. This play makes Santa REAL. There’s no jolly incorruptibly pure fat man in a red suit. With nudity, profanity and simulated drug use, it’s a safe bet this’ll get interesting.

Don’t forget the Bat City Bombshells, a burlesque troupe from Austin, Texas, either. They’ll be performing an assortment of holiday themed tunes.

Don’t bring kids.

“We’re just making it up as we go along. I mean we don’t follow a script, we’re not good actors and we don’t take our cues well. We all agree it’s important to honestly represent the idea of what we are putting forth. As a band, we are in a position to actualize where we’re going because there is no label and there are no rules. It’s been an exhilarating ride.” —Ed Jurdi. “
