The Look Ahead: Open Mic Night at the Duck, National Dance Day, and Spanish Rock at Dan’s Electro

Aha! It’s another slate of nights and days for us to fill with good… and, er, bad? Move on and see what’s approaching in the near future.


Open Mic at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck

Where: McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – Upper Kirby [2425 Norfolk, 77098]
When: Monday, July 25th | 6:30PM
How much: Free

Each brave soul will get 15 minutes in front of the crowd. Since 1990, the Duck has been host to such well respected musicians as Will LeBlanc, Lisa Morales, Michael Stroup and Wayne Wilkerson.

The Duck stage is open for you to present your original compositions or a favorite song made famous by someone else. Comedians, poets, jugglers and mimes also welcome.

National Dance Day at Houston Press

Where: HoustonPress – Downtown [1621 Milam St., 77002]
When: Saturday, July 30th | 10:00AM to 12:00PM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: Paul

“Members of the Houston Dynamo Dance Squad will be there to help everyone run through the group dance before we film it. We’ll upload the film to Youtube as part of SYTYCD’s call for entries. Water and snacks will be on hand as well.

Practice at home and then show up on Saturday, July 30. Other than your dancing feet, all you have to bring is the white T-shirt we’re asking you to wear.” Easy enough, right?

On a side note, while the video above is educational, penance is in order for having put you through it.

Changoman and La Sien at Dan’s Electro Guitar Bar

Where: Dan’s Electro Guitar Bar – The Heights [1031 East 24th St., 77009]
When: Friday, July 29th | 8:00PM
How much: $7.00 for minors, $10.00 for those able to drink
Scoop’d from: Dan’s Electro Guitar Bar

If you haven’t been to Dan’s Electro at least once, this Saturday is as good a time as any. The Spanish Rock that’ll be taking over that night only promises to take the experience up a notch. Still uncertain? Check out what the Houston Press has to say about Changoman. Based on that tid bit, the viedo above and the music I’ve found on the internets, I’d bet my socks I’ll be checking out the show.
