The Look Ahead: Dynamo Benefit for Coach Chris Matthews, KTRU Outdoor Show and Spelling Bee
Monday. Monday. This week, you’re welcome. Between walking around Memorial Park on both Saturday and Sunday, enjoying $10 Lonestar buckets out at Shady Tavern during the Final Four, and experiencing The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Theatre Performance at Rice, it’s easy to say the weekend served us well. Week, here we come.
20th Annual KTRU Outdoor Show
We’ve got ourselves a pretty hefty lineup here, folks. Word is Michael Cera and a member of Modest Mouse might even be on hand. Why? Who knows… If I may, I’m going to just paste the times and performers right here:
Told ya. Good. Show. Right?
Houston Dynamo and Stratford High School Keeping the Spirit Alive! In Honor of Coach Chris Mattews
Where: Robertson Stadium [3875 Holman St.]
When: Saturday, April 10th at 6:00 PM
How Much: $25 per person. Why? Because, the Stratford Booster Club and Lady Spartan Soccer team is selling tickets that include a pre-game tailgate dinner with food, fun, and end zone group seating.
Scoop’d From: Spartan Booster Club
I’ll let the Spartan Booster Club take this one. “Stratford High School is partnering with the Houston Dynamo in a commemorative tribute game honoring fallen Stratford HS soccer coach, Coach Chris Matthews. On Sunday, April 10th, they will honor his memory in a pre-game recognition with his family and the Stratford Varsity Lady Spartan team on the field in a tribute.”

Richard was fortunate enough to have experience this fun musical just this past Sunday. Follow six awkwardly smart and confused adolescents on their journey through the competition all of us at one time or another went through—the spelling bee. With a really enjoyable musical arrangement, sharp lyrics, and audience participation, one can’t help but happily linger in a childish state of whimsy.
