The Look Ahead: Oak Ridge Boys, Art and Wine Wednesday and Young Empires
We’re dissolving two of our favorite columns, Your Regular Scoop of Houston and Procrastinator’s Plan, and giving them a new look this year. Gone is the single serving of events in Houston. Here is a five-times-a-week battery of things to do. We will publish a few events every morning. If we’ve missed something let us know with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet at us @TheLoopScoop.
Seth Walker at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck
Where: Upper Kirby Area [2425 Norfolk St., 77098]
When: Tuesday, January 25th at 7:30PM
How much: $20
Scoop’d from: @LoneStarJukebox
At the behest of Lone Star Jukebox, we’re adding Seth Walker’s performance at Mucky Duck to our list. The man hailing from Nashvill via Austin will be playing the blues tonight. Check it out. Let us know what you think.
Fox Hollow Presents Art and Wine Wednesday
Where: Washington Heights [4617 Nett St, near Washington Ave]
When: January 26th at 6:00PM to 9:00PM
How much: “Complimentary Bites, Happy Hour Prices, Wine Specials starting at $4″
Scoop’d from: The Fox Hollow’s Facebook Page
Wowy! A Complimentary Dewer’s Scotch Whiskey Blind Tasting with 3 different scotches? The art of Cutaia, J.B. Carrillo, Chapa, Daniel Ortiz, and a live painting by Rod Quin? How does that even fit into the time slot given?
The Oak Ridge Boys at The Grand 1894 Opera House
What, you don’t think The Oak Ridge Boys are relevant anymore? What about a pretty stellar cover of “Seven Nation Army,” does that tickle your audio bone? That song grabs a slot on their latest album, released in 2009, The Boys are Back. Make the trip down to Galveston to see the group that ranges from gospel to polka to bluegrass. You won’t be disappointed.
Young Empires at Groundhall (with OK Sweetheart and The Manichean)
We’ve seen Groundhall’s name coming up a lot lately, but still haven’t made it to the revamped Engine Room for a show. Maybe all of that could change on Friday when Young Empires comes to town with opening acts OK Sweetheart and Houstonians, The Manichean.
