What’d We Miss: 8.14.11 Weekly Reader

Loopster Live: Dex Romweber Duo and The Flamin’ Hellcats at Fitzgerald’s by Paul

Where’s Pauldo (ep. 76)
Our own historian, Clint came by to solve this riddle. We weren’t sure if voiding out his victory was the right way to go, but we let his comment stand. He wins the chance to write more articles for The Loop Scoop. I know… We’re too kind.

It took us a while to set up this interview with Soham Mehta, but it won’t take you long to read. Chances are your views of Houston and its arts scene will match up nicely with Soham’s. Hopefully you took the time to drop in on the SLANT Film Festival. If not, get yourself ready for next year.
