This is the 19th weekend for 2022.
The big outdoor event near downtown Houston this weekend is "The We Are One Music and Arts Festival". The organizers say its a two-day festival (Saturday, May 14, 2022 8:00 AM, Sunday, May 15, 2022 Noon)where the community can come together to enjoy multiple musical genres and discover local Houston talent. This one-of-a-kind event will bring a talented roster of world-class musicians and artists from across the country to perform and give Houstonians an opportunity to safely celebrate diversity in the arts at one of the most beautiful parks in the city. Headliners will include stars such as Illenium, Grimes, Japanese Breakfast, Duck Sauce, CL, Poppy, Lupe Fiasco and many more. Activations and performances from local groups and artists will be featured as well, including Latino dance folk performances, a drag show from The Dollhouse Drag Brunch, live muralists and more. The setup will include three stages, where guests will witness a full schedule of performances throughout Saturday and Sunday. Food and drinks will also be available with food trucks and local vendors around the park. Its all at Eleanor Tinsley Park.
Looking for more entertainment this weekend its Lainey Wilson at Rise Rooftop. The Two Time ACM Award Winner Louisiana-born vocalist went from impersonating Hannah Montana in high school to writing and singing her own tough, heartfelt songs. Mark Deming of All Music.com says "A singer and songwriter who sounds proudly Southern in both strength and compassion, Lainey Wilson's music maintains a small-town sensibility while boasting the big-city polish of contemporary Nashville production. Wilson's voice is clear and strong, with an unapologetic Southern accent, and her songs are tough but heartfelt contemporary country with an edge that has its roots in vintage Southern rock and classic rock, as well as a dash of modern-day pop." This Saturday its Lainey Wilson on the Rooftop in downtown Houston at Rise.(Map)
Miller Outdoor Theatre this weekend delivers with free performance's of Houston Ballet.
The dance organization formally disclosed this past week the fantastic news announcing a large gift from ballet patron Margaret Alkek Williams. It was a $10 million donation to the professional dance company’s endowment fund allowing the company to continue to underwrite the many free performances they do.
The dance company has decided to thank their patron by renaming The Center for Dance building in her honor.
Oh, for those that don't know Williams is the daughter of Texas oilman Albert Alkek. The Houston Chronicle reports the ballet's artistic director Stanton Welch calls Williams a “prima philanthropist.” The pair have stepped in sync for nearly a decade. When he joined the company in 2003, she joined the board of trustees’ executive committee; her first act of business was underwriting his inaugural full-length, classical ballet and introduction to Houston audiences, “Swan Lake.” (See weekend Fridays and Saturdays for the free Miller Outdoor Theatre information)
