The Look Ahead: The Last Whiskey Wednesday, Fresh Arts Spring Forward, Noah’s Kitchen Chili Cook-Off and More Live Music

We’re here and we’re surviving. Only a couple more days left before we call it a week. Oh, happy day.

We don’t need to tell you (but we do), there’s a lot going on. So much so, in fact, that we need your help gathering all the information. If we’re missing something email at contact@theloopscoop.com or leave a comment.


Robert Ellis and the Boys: The LAST Whiskey Wednesday

Where: Fitzgerald’s – The Heights [2706 White Oak Dr., 77007]
When: Tuesday, April 27th | 7:00PM
How Much: Free
Scoop’d From: Email

We all knew this day was coming. Robert Ellis has been playing free shows every Wednesday at Fitzgerald’s for a few months now and it was only a matter of time before the Houston songsmith would have to try on a new pair of boots. Tonight is the final “Whiskey Wednesday” at Fitzgerald’s. We highly recommend you check out Robert Ellis and the Boys and throw back a few shots of whiskey to mark his departure. It will only be a matter of time before Ellis starts “big-timing” you and me. Remember where you came from, buddy.


Spring Forward! a First Look from Fresh Arts and Canopy

Where: Montrose [3939 Montrose Blvd., 77006]
When: Thursday, April 28th | 7:00PM to 10:ooPM
How Much: Suggested $20 Donation
Scoop’d From: @FreshArts

From the flyer: “Canopy, and the 25 progressive arts organizations of the Fresh Arts Coalition invite you to an exclusive sneak peek at the cutting edge of what will dazzle you next. Enjoy seasonal libations and original light bites on the covered Canopy patio!”

We would list out all the organizations that will be providing previews of their upcoming performances and exhibits, but it’s best that you check them out for yourself.


Noah’s Kitchen Chili Cook-Off at Hughes Hanger

Where: Washington Corridor [2811 Washington Ave., 77007]
When: Saturday, April 30th | 7:00PM
How Much: $10 Admission OR $5 If You Donate an Item
Scoop’d From: @Noahs_Kitchen

It’s spring. That means that it’s also cook-off season. We couldn’t be more delighted. And, you know what? Most of these cook-offs will benefit fantastic causes. This weekend’s “benefactee” is Noah’s Kitchen who “provide the less fortunate with food, gently used clothing, and the resources that will help them in finding medical help, shelter, employment, and eventually housing- getting them off the streets.”

There will be live music:
12:00 -12:45 Zavala Band
1:00 – 1:45 Mike Quigley Acoustic
2:00 – 2:45 Wayside Drive
3:00 – 3:45 Benjamin Wesley
4:00 – 4:45 Prairie Cadets
5:00 – 5:45 Harmony Groove

There will be food and cooking teams and judges and good times to be had. Hopefully you will be there to take it all in. It will all be held this Saturday, April 30th at Washington’s newest bar, Hughes Hanger (taking over the location once held by Washington Grill).


Spain Colored Orange, Mobley, The Sour Notes, Day Sailor and Disfrutalo! at Fitzgerald’s

Where: The Heights [2706 White Oak Dr., 77007]
When: Saturday, April 30th | 8:00PM
How Much: $8 General Admission
Scoop’d From: Email

We caught Mobley [pictured above] at the Spring Forward Music Festival not so long ago and walked away impressed by the energy they played with in front of no more than fifteen people. That takes guts. We signed up for their email list and here we are now.

Elaine Greer will be playing an acoustic set at Cactus Music earlier on Saturday, April 30th with Jared Boulanger of The Sour Notes. So, basically what I’m telling you is that it’s going to be a day full of music. All the bands are local – Spain Colored Orange, Day Sailor and Disfrutalo! (Houston); Mobley and The Sour Notes (Austin) – So get out there and support some great Texas-grown pop music.

provide the less fortunate with food, gently used clothing, and the resources that will help them in finding medical help, shelter, employment, and eventually housing- getting them off the streets.
