From the Rudz Details: “This music is virtuosic and ambitious, while retaining a visceral punch — and yet it’s almost anti-commerical in its bizarre and idiosyncratic approach. Such a mixture, to me, seems quintessentially Houstonian in its artistic isolation. The Squishees represent the gritty, organic, and unpredictable sprawl of our city as well as anyone. – Space City Rock”

“Explore how fate violates our conscious intentions and shapes our world in ways we never could have imagined. The moving Japanese film Departures depicts the ways that such unexpected events reflect the Self, urging us on a journey that reunites us with our deepest nature in ways we could not have predicted. As Jung wrote, ‘[God] is the name by which I designate all things which cross my willful path violently and recklessly, all things which upset my subjective views, plans, and intentions and change the course of my life for better or worse.’”
National Dance Day at Houston Press
“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?

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.
