In regard to the Lone Star State’s finest tunesmiths, Bruce Robison lands at the top of the heap. His songwriting turned the heads of some of the industry’s biggest artists and took them to the top of the charts (Dixie Chicks’ No. 1 version of “Travelin’ Soldier,” George Strait’s recording of “Wrapped” and the beautiful Tim McGraw/Faith Hill rendition of “Angry All The Time,” to name a few). While those achievements might be considered the pinnacle of a songwriting career to some, Robison has never been one to rest on his laurels. He is always creating.
This weekend Kelly Willis and Bruce Robinson will be at The Heights Theatre in northwest Houston.
In 2016, Bruce turned his focus toward his other passion project, The Next Waltz, a “virtual social house” of music, videos and interviews spotlighting the artists and songs that make up the pedigree of this generation’s cream of the crop. In his studio located just outside of Austin, Robison hosts and records an evolving array of artists who share in his commitment to continue the tradition of collaborative creativity. Everything in Bruce’s studio is recorded on analog tape “with no digital shenanigans – just like back when the music was good.” With a list of musician credits that could easily be mistaken for a hall-of-fame roll call, Robison delivers a truly organic listening experience that includes “happy accidents and all kinds of things that just feel real.

Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., known to us at TI makes his way to the Bayou City this weekend at Houston's Arena Theatre.
TI's record label released "What It's Come To", Vulture.com writes back in June, "On his new song “What It’s Come To,” rapper T.I. says he’s up against “some lying-ass bitches,” in an apparent reference to the multiple allegations of sexual assault and drugging leveled against him and his wife Tiny. The couple, who have repeatedly denied the claims, are currently under criminal investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department. The investigation was opened after an unnamed woman spoke virtually to the police in April. This all comes months after dozens of alleged victims across several states came forward with accusations of sexual abuse, sexual assault, and drugging. (Note: Los Angelis law officials have dropped allegations of sexual misconduct again the rapper and his wife,)
T.I. - What It's Come To
Harris, one of the highest selling hip-hop artists of all time, is known as one of the pioneers of the hip hop subgenre trap music, along with fellow Atlanta-based rappers Jeezy and Gucci Mane. Trap music originated in the Southern United States during the early 1990s. The genre gets its name from the Atlanta slang word "trap", a house used exclusively to sell drugs. Trap music uses synthesized drums and is characterized by complex hi-hat patterns, tuned kick drums with a long decay (originally from the Roland TR-808 drum machine), and lyrical content that often focuses on drug use and urban violence. It utilizes very few instruments and focuses almost exclusively on snare drums and double or triple-timed hi-hats.
Since crossing over into the mainstream in the 2010s, trap has become one of the most popular forms of American music, consistently dominating the Billboard Hot 100 throughout the decade with artists such as Drake, Future, Cardi B, Migos, Lil Uzi Vert, Post Malone, XXXTentacion, Young Thug, and Travis Scott (among many others) all achieving No. 1s on the chart with songs featuring production inspired by the trap subgenre.
Harris, one of America's most popular rappers/music producers continue to have legal issues follow him. But most pop culture critics agree Harris' performances are still worth a ticket.
This weekend its TI at Houston's Arena Theatre.

The band members are known for their choreography, distinct harmonies, and dress style. Having sold tens of millions of albums, the Temptations are among the most successful groups in popular music.
Featuring five male vocalists and dancers (save for brief periods with fewer or more members), the group formed in 1960 in Detroit under the name the Elgins. The founding members came from two rival Detroit vocal groups: Otis Williams, Elbridge "Al" Bryant, and Melvin Franklin of Otis Williams & the Distants, and Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams of the Primes. In 1964, Bryant was replaced by David Ruffin, who was the lead vocalist on a number of the group's biggest hits, including "My Girl" (1964)
