@Bayou Music Center
Saturday 8/21/2021 8:00 PM
Singer, songwriter, and actor Keisha makes her way to Live Nation’s Bayou Music Center this weekend with special tour guest Jessica Anne Newham, a.k.a. Betty Who.
The at (many) times suffering artist says she has been influenced by various genres and artists, such as, Madonna, Queen, the Rolling Stones, the Killers, Neutral Milk Hotel, the Black Eyed Peas, Gwen Stefani, Casiotone for the Painf, Sully Alone, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Gary Glitter and Beck. She credits her straight forward story-based lyrics to her love for the honest story telling style of country music.
"While shaking my ass at the stroke of midnight, ringing in the new year, new decade, with my new album coming this month, I thought to myself, ‘Damn. I think the best medicine for happiness and having a beautiful life is to celebrate it while I have it, with the people I love most. And ummm…shake my ass. As often as possible.

Houston Summer Jazz 2021
Marquis Hill New Gospel
Sunday 8/22/2021 3:00 PM
This weekend at Wortham it's trumpeter Marquis Hill featuring two fellow Chicagoans, vibraphonist Joel Ross and bass player Junius Paul, and two Houston natives, saxophonist Walter Smith III and drummer Kendrick Scott in concert.
From his beginnings as one of Chicago’s most thrilling young trumpeters, to his current status as an internationally renowned musician, composer and bandleader, Hill has worked tirelessly to break down the barriers that divide musical genres. Contemporary and classic jazz, hip-hop, R&B, Chicago house, neo-soul—to Hill, they’re all essential elements of the profound African-American creative heritage he’s a part of. “It all comes from the same tree,” he says. “They simply blossomed from different branches.”

The Fall of Afghanistan
One Kabul Resident recounts her experiences as the Taliban seized the capital and choas descended.
Produced by Lynsea Garrison, Annie Brown and Rachelle Bonja With Stella Tan
Edited by Larissa Anderson and M.J. Davis Lin Original music by Dan Powell
Engineered by Chris Wood
This episode contains strong language.
On Sunday, the president of Afghanistan fled the country; the Taliban seized control of Kabul, the capital; and the American-backed government collapsed.
There was chaos on the streets of Kabul as thousands went into hiding or attempted to escape. Among them was a 33-year-old woman — an outspoken critic of the Taliban who asked that we refer to her by the initial R for fear of retaliation.
“To the world, it’s just a city that collapses, but to me, it’s not just a city,” R told us. “There are thousands of souls that collapse, there are millions of dreams that collapse — our history, our culture, our art, our beauty, our life collapse.”
