The Look Ahead: Weekend Ahoy
We practically ignored the weekdays so far concerning the events we’ve written about. For that reason, we’re going to take the pick of the litter for today’s prelude into the weekend. If you can’t find something to do, you’re not doing it right. I’m exhausted just thinking of all the possibilities.
If we need to know about an upcoming event leave a comment, tweet at us (@TheLoopScoop) or email us at email@example.com.
Tickets to get in the door are only $15, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be getting the full experience. Hook up with some friends so that you can get into the real cook-off tents, preferably one sponsored by an alcohol. Free booze! We had the inside scoop with the Cougar Cookers last year. Who knows, maybe we’ll do it again in 2011.
The Set List: Concert Photography by Marco Torres
You remember Marco from such hits as the Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz photo of the week or pretty much any time you pick up the Houston Press. With a knack for shooting concerts and hunting down street art, he’s carved out quite the niche in the freelance photography market. Check out his concert photography show at Dionysus Salon this Friday.
Jester King Event at Anvil Bar & Refuge
According to Barley Vine, the Austin-based brewery Jester King, will be supply two casks and three kegs (including Black Metal Royal Imperial Stout – label above) for the Saturday tour de beer at Anvil. I think I just heard the hops-heads of Houston just cheer in unison. I’m going to predict this is going to be a crowded engagement, so get their early, camp out on the sidewalk, bring provisions, etc.
Music for Rothko by Houston Chamber Choir and Da Camera
Tickets are sold out, but you still have a chance to experience “Music for Rothko” presented by Da Camera and the Houston Chamber Choir. If seats go un-claimed you will be able to purchase them at the door for $35. Names will be taken an hour before each performance. First come first serve. Ten minutes before showtime you’ll be able to snag one of the seats from late-comers and no-showers.
John Ross Palmer February Open Studio
We follow John Palmer on Twitter, but that’s about as deep as our relationship goes. Thankfully his “Open Studio” comes with an open invite. For two hours on Sunday afternoon you’ll get a chance to hob knob with some “arties” from Houston with a glass of champagne in your hand to check out Palmer’s latest works.
Where: Upper Kirby [2425 Norfolk St., 77098]
When: Sunday, February 27th at 6:00PM
How much: $15
Scoop’d from: Facebook
From The Mucky Duck – “Dyer’s soul-revivalist live performance draws from a wealth of influences, including Dr. John, Donny Hathaway, and Bill Withers, and a lengthy catalog of songs, many recorded, but still unreleased. The audience is treated to a special brand of commotion as Dyer switches from piano to guitar, sometimes performing with a boyish grin, and other times with a perspiring concentration, which inevitably leads to groups of women swooning and swaying.”
