The Look Ahead: Ghost Wolves at Cactus, El Pueblito Patio Happy Hour, SLANT Film Fest and Bayou City Noir
It’s hump day, all right… You can feel it in the air. Just get through this one day, these last few hours of work and everything will be A-OK. That’s what you keep on telling yourself. We happen to agree with you.
The Ghost Wolves: In Store Performance at Cactus Music
Houston’s hosting another double-header today. Catch The Ghost Wolves at Cactus Music at 5:30PM. The event is free and you even get a couple Saint Arnold brews for free while you watch. Then, at 8:00PM, make sure you’re in attendance at Under the Volcano (the website NEVER CHANGES!) for the prime-time performance by The Ghost Wolves.
Happy Hour on the El Pueblito Patio
Free music from 6PM to 10PM. Three-dollar margaritas until 8PM. Twenty-dollar buckets of beer all night. Tell me one good reason that you shouldn’t be chilling on the El Pueblito patio when the whistle sounds at work? You’ve got nothin’, I tell ya.
SLANT Film Festival at River Oaks Theater
“This annual Aurora program showcases an eclectic mix of the best short films made by emerging and mid-career Asian American artists. Curated by Melissa Hung, founding editor of Hyphen, the festival features all genres including narrative, experimental, documentary, and animation and reflects personal and cultural issues of Asian Americans.”
Bayou City Noir: The Photography of Marvin Zindler – Closing Reception and Auction
The Museum of Printing History: “For decades, Marvin Zindler was known in Houston and throughout the world as KTRK-TV’s flamboyant consumer affairs reporter and advocate for the indigent. However, what many do not know is that during the early 1950s, Zindler prowled Houston’s streets as a newspaper photographer covering the crime beat. Working for the now-defunct daily Houston Press, Zindler caught Houstonians at their most vulnerable. Crime suspects, robbery victims, socialites, wayward juveniles and even domestic violence victims were captured in unflinching detail.”
