The Look Ahead: Tokyo Police Club, Soul Nite! and Arts Market
We’re dissolving two of our favorite columns, Your Regular Scoop of Houston and Procrastinator’s Plan, and giving them a new look this year. Gone is the single serving of events in Houston. Here is a five-times-a-week battery of things to do. We will publish a few events every morning. If we’ve missed something let us know with an email to email@example.com or tweet at us @TheLoopScoop.

We missed Tokyo Police Club the last time they were in town when they opened for Passion Pit. We’re going to try to avoid making that same mistake twice. This time around, they’re carrying the banner of the show and look at that, Houston band, Roky Moon & Bolt will be taking over the opening duties.
Soul Nite! presented by Aurora Picture Show and Project Row Houses
The best of the 60s on Friday night. The funktastic 70s on Saturday night. Whichever day you decide to go you’re not going to be disappointed. Guest curator, Peter Lucas, will be bombarding your eyes and ears as he plays the performance footage from some of the most well-known soul artists the world has ever had the pleasure of hosting. Catch all of it at the newly renovated, Historic Elgin Ballroom.

Guess what, buckaroos. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and nothing says “I kindasorta like you” than a oil painting to be hung over the mantle. Come on over to the Heights for The First Saturday Arts Market to pick up your canvas. Stay for the cupcakes from What’s Up, Cupcake and the live performances from Rory Jagedeo (11AM) and Andrew Karnavas (3PM).
