This weekend LiveNation is presenting "One Night" with Nikki Glaser at their 713 Music Hall venue.
(From Nikki Glaser.com) Glaser is one of the funniest female voices in comedy today. For over a decade at clubs across the country, and as the host of three hit podcasts, she has been honing her shockingly- honest, no-holds barred style of comedy. Her brand-new daily show, THE NIKKI GLASER PODCAST, launched March 2021 through iHeartMedia and Will Ferrell’s Big Money Players Network. It is a daily companion podcast that is peppered with Nikki’s sense of humor and honesty to help keep listeners sane, well-informed and laughing through life. This July, she is kicking off her nationwide comedy tour, ONE NIGHT WITH NIKKI GLASER.
This summer, Glaser is taking her love for reality tv to the next level by hosting the new HBO MAX reality dating series FBOY ISLAND. FBOY ISLAND, follows three women who move to a tropical island where they’re joined by 24 men – 12 self-proclaimed “Nice Guys” looking for love and 12 self-proclaimed “FBoys,” there to compete for cold, hard cash. The women will navigate the dating pool together with the hope of finding a lasting love connection. By the finale, all will be revealed – who is a Nice Guy, who is an FBoy and who the women ultimately choose.

With Special Guests
The Isley Brothers
Saturday 4/16/2022 7:30 PM
Doors Open 6:30 PM
It was the late Marvin Gaye that encouraged Frankie Beverly to change the band's name from Raw Soul to Maze. The band (Maze) and Beverly would tour with Marvin Gay back in the mid 70's. This weekend Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly with Special Guests The Isley Brothers And LeVelle will be at Toyota Center.
The sound of Maze and Frankie Beverly is distinctive -- passionate, creative, original, soulful, honest and powerful. It's been nearly thirty years Frankie Beverly and Maze have created a unique sound and have become one of the most influential R&B groups in modern history.
Over the next decade, Maze released a series of well crafted, well received albums that uniformly hit top 10 Soul and pulled onto the Top 100 pop charts based on sales among black audiences.
"We've made it this far because we love and respect ourselves and our fans. But, most importantly, we believe in what we do," says Beverly. The journey began when Beverly relocated from his hometown of Philadelphia to San Francisco and formed Maze. It was 1976 the group released their first album, "Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly" which yielded a string of hit singles, including "Lady of Magic" and "Workin' Together."

Tommy Castro & the Painkillers' 30th anniversary tour this weekend in northwest Houston at The Heights Theatre.
“The hardest thing to do,” says internationally beloved soul-blues rocker Tommy Castro, “is be yourself, take some chances and bring your fans along with you.” Throughout his long, constantly evolving career, guitarist, singer and songwriter Tommy Castro has always remained true to himself while exploring, growing and creating new music, and he has taken his thousands of devoted fans right along with him. Since his solo debut in 1994, he’s made 16 albums— the last seven for Alligator—each its own unique chapter in the book of Tommy Castro. Ranging from horn-fueled R&B to piping hot blues to fiery, stripped- down rock ‘n’ roll, each release is solidly built upon Castro’s unshakable musical foundation—a dynamic mix of 1960s-influenced guitar-fueled blues, testifying Memphis-soaked blue-eyed soul and Latin-tinged East San Jose funk, all driven by Castro’s grab-you-by- the-collar vocals and passionate guitar work. Blues Revue declared, “Tommy Castro can do no wrong.”
“Fifty years have passed in a flash,” says Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist, songwriter and vocalist Marcia Ball of her long and storied career. Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year, has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Her rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world. With each new release, her reputation as a profoundly soulful singer, a boundlessly talented pianist and a courageous, inventive songwriter continues to grow. Her love of the road has led to years of soul-satisfying performances at festivals, concert halls and clubs. The New York Times says, “Marcia Ball plays two-fisted New Orleans barrelhouse piano and sings in a husky, knowing voice about all the trouble men and women can get into on the way to a good time.” The Houston Chronicle says simply, “She’s as perfect as an artist can be.”

The Philly Soul Sound
Center of Houston
Saturday 4/16/2022 8:15 PM
It’s time to get down with the sound of Philly! Get energized as music from hit-makers like The O’Jays, The Spinners, Dionne Warwick, and Teddy Pendergrass come alive with lush instrumental arrangements and a thumping rhythm section on the Miller Stage.
Community Music Center of Houston has a mission to educate, preserve, and perform African-American and diasporic music traditions.
Philadelphia soul, sometimes called Philly soul, the Philadelphia sound, Phillysound, or TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia), is a genre of late 1960s–1970s soul music characterized by funk influences and lush instrumental arrangements, often featuring sweeping strings and piercing horns.
It was the popular television show "Soul Train" and its creator/producer the late Don Cornelius that pushed the soul genre of the phillysound during the 60's and 70's. The shows opening music was produced by the duo of Gamble and Huff along with jazzman George Duke. The shows opening music became a pop R&B hit in 1974.
The Best Of Soul Train - (1971 - 1979)
The genre laid the groundwork for disco by fusing the R&B rhythm sections of the 1960s with the pop vocal tradition, and featuring a slightly more pronounced jazz influence in its melodic structures and arrangements. Fred Wesley, the trombonist of the James Brown band and Parliament-Funkadelic, described the signature deep but orchestrated sound as "putting the bow tie on funk."
Due to the emphasis on sound and arrangement and the relative anonymity of many of the style's players, Philadelphia soul is often considered a producers' genre.
Philadelphia soul was popular throughout the 1970s, and it set the stage for the studio constructions of disco and urban contemporary music that emerged later in the decade.

Vir Das in Concert
@Bayou Music Center
Saturday 4/16/2022 7:00 PM
This weekend its comedian Vir Das in Houston at LiveNation's Bayou Music Center. The Indian subcontinent funny man got into a lot of hot water last November when during his act he described two Indias.
(From Indian Today.com) Speaking exclusively to India Today, comedian Vir Das said on Monday, “I am here to do my job and will continue. I won’t stop. My job is to make people laugh and if you don’t find it funny, don’t laugh.”
Throughout last week, Vir Das was at the centre of a controversy for his 'I come from two Indias' viral six-minute video. The video, in which he delivers a monologue on the good and the bad in India, was both criticised as well as hailed. While some felt he was 'insulting India', others supported him for his 'brave stand'.
When asked what inspired him to write the monologue, he said, "I was just doing a show. We were full, and it was my audience and I wrote a piece." The comedian said that he did not intend to start a conversation with his monologue. "I don't think you ever hope to start a conversation. I think you just hope to make people laugh in the room," he added.
