Westbound has this to say, “We’re an independent and hard-working band from Houston, and we’re setting up a very special event at Rudyard’s on Thursday, Oct. 20th. We’re playing with Possessed by Paul James, which, together with Westbound, will bring Houston a night of music that is completely unique, and very special. We do what we do for the love of the music and the love of our fans.” I’m sold. If I were a bettin’ man, I’d say you was too. Let’s head on down to Rudz.

Put on your formal wear, cocktail attire or 1950s chic—it’s time to celebrate Opera Vista’s Fifth Anniversary and kick-off OV’s next production: Thomas Ades’ Powder Her Face. The video up there is assuredly a realistic preview. Keep that in mind when you’re thinking about staying in with a tub of honey and ginger snaps.

Participants will get to sample creations by chefs from BRC Gastropub, Community Bar, Eatsie Boys, Haven, Lola, Quattro, Shade, Zelko Bistro and more while raising money for Child Advocates‘ fight against child abuse. A huge thank you goes to all our sponsors, participants and most especially to Hughes Hangar for hosting this great new event. Watch for information on how to buy your tickets in advance, because this is a contest you won’t want to miss!
