What’d We Miss: 5.8.11 Weekly Reader

We’ve been publishing a lot more content lately making it much more difficult for our weekly readers to catch up. Well, fret no more. We’re going to start publishing a new column on Mondays to help you keep up with our Houston domination. Welcome to the new “What’d We Miss.”

A Night To Remember: Where were You? by Paul
The news that the world couldn’t overlook last week was that which marked the death of Osama bin Laden. For nearly ten years, every time we traveled or walked into a government building (or any number of other scenarios) we were reminded of his presence. Paul heard the news over the PA at West Alabama Ice House. Where were you when you heard?

Loopster Live: Black Lips at Fitzgerald’s by Alexander
This is probably some of the best concert photography we’ve been blessed to publish on The Loop Scoop. Alexander caught an amazing show at Fitzgerald’s. Energy from the crowd had the band giving it back tenfold. Great stuff.

Street Art of the Week: Tengo Sed
The first appearance of the artist Agua on The Loop Scoop was contributed by photographer Candace Garcia.

Loopster Live: The Literary Greats at Continental Club by Paul
Hold on to your hats, there is a ton of great music rolling through town in the next couple weeks and we haven’t even published all the great stuff that happened in the last two. Paul was at Continental Club on a Thursday night to watch Beetle whip up the crowd to prepare them for the CD release of Black Blizzard by The Literary Greats. Chalk up at least one new fan for the Houston band.

Cinco de Mayo: A Loopster “How to” Guide for 2011
The day has passed, but the relevance of the places that were picked to celebrate has not. If you’re looking for a good way to celebrate the fare of Mexico (or really, “Tex-Mex”) then check out our “how to” guide. We’ll be back with another next year.

Loopster Live: Arcade Fire at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion by Alexander
We didn’t get photo access to this show, but that doesn’t mean that Alexander couldn’t go into striking detail of the awkward homecoming of Win Butler and Arcade Fire. The Woodlands provided much of the material that ended up on their newest album The Suburbs. It also provided the venue of a raucous return.

Photo of the Week: Finals aren’t Final
By Decklid18, we shot back in time for a photo of Reliant Stadium dressed up as a basketball arena. March Madness ended in April, but it lives on and will be back in 2016.

Dater Unknown: Freak Flags by Dater Unknown
We all have freak flags. Do you let yours fly? Dater Unknown has a little issue with what is medically known as “snoring.” Apparently her nighttime habit rates as a 10 out of 10 on the severity scale. Luckily, she rates a 10 out of 10 in her boy’s heart. How sweet… and seriously hilarious.

A Very Last Minute Mother’s Day
First of all, I hope all you mothers out there got the day that you deserved. We’re really sorry that we were late in publishing our guide to Mother’s Day. It was because we were out picking out your present and cooking you breakfast to be served in bed. We swear!
