“Postcards from Houston is a grassroots, Houston-based community arts course with
collaborations including The Orange Show and the Greater Houston Preservation Alliance (GHPA). The
project itself is all about preserving what makes Houston unique and making that available to everyone…
And anyone can enroll!”

We’re sending one of our own to this four-course art class. Richard will be taking part in the two-hour sessions to see what his hands can create. The works of the participants will be on display during a gallery show with prints available for purchase with the proceeds going to The Orange Show. It’s a mighty fine time to be an artist.

Back on January 17th, we relayed information that Roky Moon and Bolt was in the studio for a massive live session that would culminate in their newest record. Well, it’s finally coming. American Honey has it’s release date set for July 30th at Fitzgerald’s. Along with that awesome info, we also know that Sideshow Tramps will finally be releasing a follow-up to their 2007 beast Medicine Show. The new album, Revelator, doesn’t have a release date or party set for it yet, but we’ll keep a look out for you.

For a long time we’ve been wondering what (or who) would replace the indomitable act of Robert Ellis and the Boys at Fitzgerald’s on Wednesday nights. We have our answer. Starting tonight, Wednesday, July 20th, the mic is open for all comers. Sign-up is at 8:00PM with the first act starting at 8:30PM. Dust off the guitar, gather up your courage and set out for the Heights. It’s time you got yourself on stage.
