The Look Ahead: Mother Truckers, Finnegan, Castle Lights, Bats, Boats, and Mobley

Thursday. You’re nearly my favorite day of the week. I don’t need to tell you why. We’ve got music and bats coming up. Two out-door experiences and two indoor experiences.

The Mother Truckers at Discovery Green

Where: Discovery Green – Downtown [1500 McKinney, 77010]
When: Thursday, June 23rd | Show kicks off at 6:30PM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: Discovery Green

Outdoor Southern Rock on one of the longest and hottest days of the year—I’m pretty sure that gets a “peas and carrots.” With Downtown all around and one day of work left, if it ain’t time to relax, I’m not sure when a better time’ll hit.


Finnegan, Brent Nettles, The Rocketboys, and Castle Lights at Fitzgerald’s

Where: Fitzgerald’s – The Heights [2706 White Oak Dr., 77007]
When: Friday, June 24th | Show kicks off at 8:00PM
How much: $8
Scoop’d from: @iheartfinnegan

Wow! There’s some good music at Fitz tomorrow night. With a reasonably diverse mix of quality musicians like these, the eight buckerunis you’re charged for entry, might just be a rip-off in your favor.

Waugh Bridge Bat Colony Pontoon Boat Tour

Where: Downtown – Sabine Prominade - Closest to – [The Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark Houston]
When: Friday, June 24th | Tour begins 45 minutes before dusk, I’d say 7:30PM
How much: $35 per adult; $25 per child (ages 4-12) no children under 4
Scoop’d from: Buffalo Bayou Partnership

Everyone’s heard of the Congress Avenue Bat Bridge in Austin—rumor has it, the mass take-off of bats from the Waugh Bridge is even more spectacular. Get there early if you can, they only offer 21 seats.

[If you're wondering why the name on that video, Jeremy Keas, looks familiar—why it's because he's contributed a time or two to this here site. Thank you, Jeremy.]

MobleyOzeal, and Grizzly at The Continental Club

Where: The Continental Club – The Fourth Ward [3700 Main St., 77002]
When: Saturday, June 25th | Show kicks off at 9:00PM
How much: Free?
Scoop’d from: Paul

Paul caught Mobley back at the Spring Forward Music Festival and went on and on about them for nearly a month. The rest of us at the office gave him the cold shoulder, “Yeah, just another indie rock band lost in mediocrity?” Well, shame on us. Mobley’s got it. As for Ozeal and Grizzly, they’re good, as well. Take a chance.
