The Look Ahead: Troubadour Tuesday, Intergalactic Nemesis and Rudyard’s Lucky 13 Show

It’s time to jump into our Tuesday. I don’t know about you, but I’m already amped up for my afternoon nap. That’s far too long away to be excited about, especially since it’s just a nap. Good thing there are some events tonight and later this week that are a little bit more exciting.


Troubadour Tuesday at House of Blues (Presented by Lonestar Jukebox)

Where: Downtown – House of Blues [1204 Caroline St., 77002]
When: Tuesday, May 10th | Doors at 5:00 PM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: Our Facebook Page

Folk Family Revival and Frank Freeman are listed as the acts for tonight. Troubadour Tuesday is the first Tuesday of every month and it’s a wonder that we’ve missed promoting it before now. The last time we caught up with FFR was at Houston’s SXSW party, and we’re itching for another go-around. We would link to Lone Star Jukebox on 90.1 KPFT (Saturdays from 9:00AM to Noon), but their website doesn’t work.


The Intergalactic Nemesis (Presented by SPA Houston)

Where: Wortham Theater [501 Smith St., 77002]
When: Thursday, May 12th | 8:00 PM
How much: $24 to $44
Scoop’d from: Email

Your guess is as good as mine. How the Society of the Performing Arts will pull off a “live graphic novel” is a mystery. But if the following trailer is any indication…

Oh, so it’s a comic book reading complemented by a piano with the pages projected on the screen. Sounds pretty gnarly to me.

Rudyard’s “Lucky 13″ Show feat. August 83, Staci’s Edge and Luxurata

Where: Montrose [2010 Waugh Dr., 77006]
When: Friday, May 13th | Show at 9:00 PM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: @August83Band

Friday the 13th. Never has such an aura followed a date (that happens much too regularly for it to be mysterious, right?). Well, if you need to find a way to avoid the vamps, weres, zombs, mums and whatever other scary species I can reduce into one-syllable ridiculousness, then the show at Rudyard’s featuring three Houston bands (August 83, Staci’s Edge and Luxurata) is your ticket.
