The Look Ahead: “This is NOT Democracy,” 2011 NBA Draft Party and Southern Backtones at Rudyard’s
The rain is finally here. We’re all rejoicing. How long until the elation goes asunder? For us staffers, we could use a few more days of this kind of weather. Not sweating as soon as we step foot out the door is kind of nice. Either way, let’s look at some of the events that we can take advantage of this week.
“In honor of World Refugee Day 2011, The ONE Foundation & The Downtown Club are partnering for a special evening, featuring a documentary film screening of ‘This is NOT Democracy‘ and a talk about refugees from Burma & around the world, including those who now call Houston ‘home.’”
With appearances from last year’s draft pick as well as the Rockets Power Dancers and Clutch, House of Blues is the place to be tomorrow night if you’re a Houston basketball fan. Our hopes and dreams for the 2011 will be kickstarted as we see what Daryl Morey can pull out of his sleeve. No better way than cheering (or booing) with other like-minded folk.
The above video is the trailer for Honky Tonk Blood, the movie that features Hank Schyma of Southern Backtones. If you can’t make it on Saturday night, keep your 6/29/11 Wednesday night free. The Backtones will be at it once again at Under the Volcano. They’re “can’t miss” dates with a little leeway to miss one. Perfect.
