The Look Ahead: Veterans Day, The Noise Tour, PROJECT Trio, Art Car: The Movie and Dynamo Celebration

This week has already begun to confuse us. It’s Wednesday, correct? If not, we apologize.

There are a lot of events on the horizon that we’re looking forward to, but we kick things off with a reminder to salute those that have defended this fine country over the years. The Veterans Day Parade is right around the corner. Read on.

Houston Salutes American Heroes: Veterans Day Parade

Where: Downtown — Theater District [Find Free Parking Here (pdf)]
When: Friday, November 11th | Ceremony at 10:00AM; Parade at 11:30PM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from:

Please join the people of Houston to celebrate our nation’s military veterans. If you work downtown, I don’t see why you wouldn’t find your way to the Theater district for the celebration and subsequent parade. The rest of us non-downtowners, might find it a little more difficult, but it’s a minimal sacrifice compared to that of the people that have defended our country.

Meet and Greet: Mayday Parade & We Are The In Crowd at Cactus Music

Where: Upper Kirby – Cactus Music [2110 Portsmouth St., 77098]
When: Wednesday, November 9th | 4:00PM to 5:00PM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: Facebook

The Noise Tour is rolling through town tonight, but before that kicks off you have an opportunity to meet a couple of the headliners at Cactus Music. Unfortunately, they won’t be playing any of their tunes before the show at House of Blues. Meeting the men behind the mic will prove to be just as exciting. It’s all free. Make the most of it.

The Noise Tour feat. Mayday Parade, We Are The In Crowd, You Me at Six, There for Tomorrow and The Make

Where: Downtown – House of Blues [1204 Caroline St., 77002]
When: Wednesday, November 9th | Doors at 6:00PM
How much: $20 General Admission
Scoop’d from: Cactus Music

Talk about making the most of your money. The Noise Tour brings five premium bands to Houston for $20. Mayday Parade, the tour’s headliner, is touring in support of their eponymous second album released earlier this year. If you’re adventurous enough, the open doors at 6:00PM will surely bring you a few surprises. At least get there for You Me at Six’s set.  The song above should be enough to convince you of that.


PROJECT Trio at ERJCC of Houston

Where: Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center [5601 S. Braeswood Blvd., 77096]
When: Saturday, November 12th | 8:00PM
How much: $18 ERJCC Members; $25 General Public
Scoop’d from: Email & @thePROJECTTrio

From the press release — “PROJECT Trio is said to be pushing the boundaries of classical music with a mix of jazz, hip-hop and rock performing to enthusiastic crowds of all ages around the world. Acclaim for the Trio and its member’s runs the gamut from Downbeat Magazine, which exclaims PROJECT Trio is ‘packed with musicianship, joy and surprise’ to the New York Times, which calls beat-boxing flutist Greg Pattillo ‘the best in the world at what he does.’”

We recommend checking out this “Dr. Nick” video as well as the multiple beatbox flute (yes… really!) videos for “Inspector Gadget” and “Mario Bros.” to whet your appetite.


2011 Cinema Arts Festival Houston

Where: A Movie Theater Near You!
When: November 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th
How much: Some screenings are Free!, Most are between $10 and $15
Scoop’d from: @OrangeShow

The beginning and the end are the most exciting parts of the 2011 Cinema Arts Festival Houston. Tonight, the party kicks off at Museum of Fine Arts Houston ($25 General; $20 Student). The real crown jewel of the festival is the finale: The world premier of “Art Car: The Movie” at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Houston has been patiently waiting for this documentary to get released. Sunday at 7:00PM the city waits no more. You can reserve tickets through the festival or show up for the lawn seats. It’s your choice.


Dynamo Celebration 2011: A Night to Remember

Where: George R. Brown Convention Center [1001 Avienda de Las Americas, 77002]
When: Tuesday, November 14th | Doors at 7:30PM
How much: Limited Tickets
Scoop’d from: @HoustonDynamo

Maybe you’ve heard: The Houston Dynamo will be playing for the MLS Cup on November 20th. Perhaps your traveling to LA and the Home Depot Center for the game. If your budget isn’t quite large enough to handle that, the celebration will begin for you this Tuesday, November 14th. Unfortunately, we can’t tell you how much tickets are or where you can get them because the Dynamo’s website isn’t giving us the details, but as soon as we know, you will know.
