The Look Ahead: Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt, Trail Running at Memorial Park, And The Return of a King
Good Monday, to all! I hope everyone is rested and recharged for another exciting week in Houston. Heats up and so are the spirits here at the Loop Scoop offices because, damnit, there’s a lot going on. Below we list a few.
Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt at The Grand 1894 Opera House
Where: The Grand 1894 Opera House – Galveston [2020 Post Office St., 77550]
When: Monday, June 27th | Show kicks off at 8:00PM
How much: That depends. Tickets might be sold out for this show, but that might only slightly diminish your chances of getting in.
Scoop’d from: @Grand1894
More good music is making an appearance down in Galveston. This show is most definitely worth the drive. Heck, We nominated Mr Lovett for our 2009 Bestus Prospectus: Texas and Houston Albums of the Year. He and John Hiatt are legends in their own right, still playing to sold-out crowds decades after they began touring.
Trail Running at Memorial Park with Bayou City Outdoors
Sure it’s warm out. That’s no reason to shun the outdoors. Find a shaded trail and go for a run. Oh, what’s this, there’s more than a few at Memorial Park. And also, it’s like you’re not in Houston, in the sense that there’s no road noise, no sirens—just quiet. That’s rare in a city like ours. Even if you can’t meet up with the Bayou City folks, it can’t hurt to check it out on your own.
LATER THIS WEEK
The Lord of the Rings – Extended Edition: The Return of the King
It’s the extended edition of Return of the King—you know the version where the Witch King puts it to Gandalf? Pretty powerful stuff. If you’ve continued reading this, you’re probably familiar with Tolkian, Jackson, Wood and Mortensen. If not, watch the video just above and see what you’ve been missing, intentionally or unintentionally.
