The Look Ahead: Stick ‘Em Up Adds Showing, Kyle Park at Wild River and Bayou Bash
One day closer to the weekend. Let’s see what we’ve got… Good news and New news. Heck yeah.
As always, if we need to know about an upcoming event leave a comment, tweet at us (@TheLoopScoop) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love to be the bearers of good news. Stick ‘Em Up is adding a third(!) time to tonight’s Houston screening of the documentary. Those of you who dilly dallied can now see the street art documentary directed by Alex Luster and produced by Tony Reyes at 10:30PM instead of having to loiter to see if anyone will no-show. Not only is this good news for you procrastinators out there, this is awesome news to those people supporting the show. Nothing feels better than watching a buzz surround something that you think deserves it.
This won’t be the last time you get to see the film, so keep your eyes peeled for more dates and the inevitable film festival premiere. The film profiles a few Houston street artists, specifically those focusing on wheat paste as a medium, including Dual, Eyesore and Cutthroat. But Stick ‘Em Up really gets rolling when it delves into the work and mind behind Give Up, Houston’s best known urban artist.
Kyle Park Band (w/ opener Ryan Beaver) at Wild River Saloon
Stephan is an ardent Kyle Park fan, and why wouldn’t he be. His EPs showed up on our “Bestus Prospectus” for local music in 2010. That’s pretty much the Houston equivalent to the Grammys. Kyle Park’s newest album will be released this year, but check out the EPs from last year for a taste of what’s to come. Park is evolving with technology by releasing songs before they make the final cut of the album to give his fans a chance to give feedback and fall in love all over again once the finished product is released. We think that’s kind of awesome.
