In 2018, Marvel Studios’ Black Panther quickly became a global sensation and cultural phenomenon, showing a new dimension of what Super Hero films could be. Rolling Stone raved, “The film lights up the screen with a full-throttle blast of action and fun. That’s to be expected. But what sneaks up and floors you is the film’s racial conscience and profound, astonishing beauty.” Now you can relive the excitement of T’Challa becoming king and battling Killmonger all while the Houston Symphony performs Ludwig Göransson’s Oscar®-winning score live to picture.

Kountry Wayne in Concert
@Bayou Music Center
Saturday 4/2/2022 7:30 PM
This weekend at Bayou Music Center its Kountry Wayne in downtown Houston.
(From Leo Weekly.com) Comedian Kountry Wayne (Wayne Colley) got his start on Facebook, making short videos about life’s inconvenient and unfortunate moments, like catching a girlfriend’s friend naked in their house. The skits Colley created, many featuring him in these situations with his thick Georgia drawl and funny expressions, were shared heavily and made him recognizable, bringing him to the attention of other celebrities who he’s since befriended. The 34-year old from Waynesboro, Georgia, is coming to the Louisville Palace this Saturday, March 5, for his “Straight Out the Mud” tour. LEO caught up with Colley to discuss his career, tour and how regular experiences like dating, pregnancy scares, etc. become part of his show. Colley is the father of 10 kids (ages 16 to 1 years old).
LEO: Tell us about growing up in small-town Georgia and how you found your way to the comedy stage.
Kountry Wayne Colley: Well, as a child, I was always making people laugh real easy. I got older, I was trying to do the music, but I put up a video one day, [inaudible] it’s funny and people liked that more than my music. So I was like, ‘Hey, this must be the way.’
My dad was a standup comedian and his family was big and loud and always funny. Did you have a similar experience?
Oh yeah. My whole family, they were always drunk.
Your videos deal with so many real life situations, some every day, and others more risque. How did you choose those topics?

Old 97's and Reckless Kelly in Concert
@713 Music Hall
Saturday 4/2/2022 7:30 PM
This weekend in Houston its Old 97's and Reckless Kelly in concert at LiveNation's 713 Music Hall.
Old 97's got its start in Dallas in 1986 when singer/guitar player Rhett Miller opened for bassist/vocalist Murry Hammond's rock band, Peyote Cowboys — the start of a long friendship and partnership in music. It was Hammond, a train buff, who gave the group its name, inspired by an old railroad standard, "The Wreck of the Old 97."
(From Reckless Kelly.com) Understanding the virtuosity of Reckless Kelly requires the perspective of where the band has been. Cody and Willy Braun grew up in the White Cloud Mountains of Idaho. They moved to Bend, Oregon, and then migrated to that great musical fountainhead, Austin, Texas.
The band’s co-founders and frontmen toured the country as part of their father’s band, Muzzie Braun and the Boys, as children. They performed on The Tonight Show twice. Their father taught his four sons a professional ethic – integrity, persistence, hard work and professionalism – honed over three generations. They overcame hardships, struggled for recognition, and learned the lessons of the trial and error that defined them.
