This Grambling State University graduate in business management continues to wow us with his rhyms.

Weezer & Pixies
with The Wombats
@The Cynthia Woods
Saturday 6/30/2018 6:30 PM
Though Weezer and Pixies have shared stages in the past, this marks their first full tour together.
The tour comes on the heels of the release of Weezer’s acclaimed eleventh studio album, Pacific Daydream. With love from the likes of the New York Times, NPR Music, Q Magazine, and more, as well as a no. 1 Alternative single in the album’s song “Feels Like Summer,” Pacific Daydream is a brilliant addition to the band’s already much-loved discography.
Pixies’ live shows are unadulterated magic - simultaneously electrifying and lo-fi with focus on the music with almost no between-song banter. On this tour, fans can expect 75-minutes of Pixies playing “anything they want,” one song right after the other, chosen from all points of their career, the classics and the new gems. Artists like Bono, Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain and David Bowie knew what they were saying when they heaped praise on Pixies’ immense influence and rich contribution to music. This is a band that gives its concert audiences sweet memories of the past while continuing to evolve with relevancy.

Houston Ballet Presents
@Jones Hall for the Performing Arts
June 23rd through July 1st, 2018
The ballet composed by Russian Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky makes its way to Jones Hall for the Performing Arts. Its a perfect Sunday weekend outing.
The scenario, initially in two acts, was fashioned from Russian and/or German folk tales and tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. The choreographer of the original production was Julius Reisinger (Václav Reisinger). The ballet was premiered by the Bolshoi Ballet in 1877 at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. Although it is presented in many different versions, most ballet companies base their stagings both choreographically and musically on the 1895 revival of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, first staged for the Imperial Ballet in 1895, at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. For this revival, Tchaikovsky's score was revised by the St. Petersburg Imperial Theatre's chief conductor and composer Riccardo Drigo.
