The Look Ahead: Rodeo Queen, Dem Damn Dames, Burned Out, Flock to the Catwalk, Grown-Up Story Time

It has been fifteen months and six days since the last iteration of The Look Ahead has graced the pages of this fair site. To say we are rusty is an understatement. Lend a blog a helping hand.

Clue us in. Send us your fun/interesting/quirky/dramatic events going around town: Contact@TheLoopScoop.com

Through a little bit of scrounging, we have a few events to share with you this week. A couple of concerts, a burlesque review, grown-ups telling grown-up stories and even a fundraising event. Oh, what a week it will be.


Rodeo Queen at Warehouse Live — Debut Album Release Party

Where: Downtown — Warehouse Live [813 St. Emanuel St., 77003]
When: Thursday, June 13th | Doors at 7:30PM
How much: $5 General Admission

Rodeo Queen will hit the stage in support of his debut album Goodness Gracious in two short days. Sure, that’s not a lot of time to prepare yourself, but these things rarely need advance warning. A new artist calling Houston his home should be your call to arms. You can check out three songs from the debut right now, my personal favorite being “Buzzard’s Choke.” I’m a sucker for hollow, distorted guitar and backing organ, what can I say. Paul Banks will be there to warm up the crowd.

Update: You can now download the debut ahead of the show. Click Here


Dem Damn Dames Burlesque Presents: From Houston, With Love

Where: Downtown – ISIS Houston [1010 Prairie, 77002]
When: Friday, June 14th| Doors at 7:30PM
How much: $15 in advance; $20 at the door

We’ve seen a couple members of Dem Damn Dames perform before and it’s a hell of an experience. On this night you should “Join the fabulous Houston-based ladies as they present a night of espionage and debauchery in FROM HOUSTON, WITH LOVE. Equip your latest spy gadgets and your sexiest Bond girl dress for this premier Houston burlesque show.”


Craig Kinsey Presents: Burned Out V
Espantapajaros + Poor Pilate + Craig Kinsey

Where: The Heights - Fitzgerald’s [2706 White Oak Dr., 77007]
When: Saturday, June 15th| Doors at 8:30PM
How much: $10 in advance

We’ve been big fans of the Burned Out series since it’s genesis. We’re not going to stop now… not with The Loop Scoop making a comeback. It’s time to get back to our roots and the set list of old tunes performed by some of our favorite Houston bands is just the ticket.


BooTown Presents: Grown-Up Story Time 56 (The Best of Season 6)

Where: Montrose – Rudyard’s – Upstairs [2010 Waugh Dr., 77006]
When: Tuesday, June 18th| 9:00PM

From Facebook: “For nine GUST’s a year, you guys send us awesome stories, we pick the best ones and then assign them to our rotating crack squad of expert story readers. For the last Storytime of our season we pick the best stories from the past year and invite those readers back. This is that Storytime.”


Flock the Catwalk at TOOTSIES
