This weekend in Galveston its Texas country crooner, Lyle Lovett. Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. With the help of his Acoustic Group of country musicians his intimate concert will put a different spin on country classics old and new.
(From All Music.com) Lyle Lovett was one of the most distinctive and original singer/songwriters to emerge during the '80s. Though he was initially labeled as a country singer, the tag never quite fit him. Lovett had more in common with '70s singer/songwriters like Guy Clark, Jesse Winchester, Randy Newman, and Townes Van Zandt, combining a talent for incisive, witty lyrical detail with an eclectic array of music, ranging from country and folk to big-band swing and traditional pop. Lovett's literate, multi-layered songs stood out among the formulaic Nashville hit singles of the late '80s as well as the new traditionalists who were beginning to take over country music. Drawing from alternative country and rock fans, Lovett quickly built up a cult following that began to spill over into the mainstream with his second album, 1988's Pontiac. Following Pontiac, his country audience declined, but his reputation as a songwriter and musician continued to grow, and he sustained a dedicated cult following throughout the '90s.
Lyle Lovett - If I Had A Boat
Born in Klein, Texas -- a small town (named after his great-grandfather, a Bavarian weaver named Adam Klein) that later became a Houston suburb -- Lovett was raised on his family horse ranch. He didn't begin his musical career until he began writing songs while attending Texas A&M University in the late '70s, where he studied journalism and German. While he was a student, he performed covers and original songs at local folk festivals and clubs. As a graduate student, he traveled to Germany to study and continued to write and play while he was in Europe. However, he didn't begin to pursue a musical career in earnest until he returned to America in the early '80s. (Read more @ All Music.com)

John Mulaney in Concert
Saturday 3/26/2022 7:00 PM
John Mulaney is best known for his work as a writer on Saturday Night Live and as a standup comedian with standup specials The Top Part, New in Town, and The Comeback Kid. Malaney was the creator and star of the short-lived Fox sitcom Mulaney, a semi-autobiographical series. This weekend the comedian will be in perfromance at The Toyota Center in his first arena tour
In his bio it is reported when he was seven he had an opportunity to audition for the role of Kevin in the film Home Alone, but his parents declined. When he was in junior high at St. Clement School, in lieu of doing reports, he and his best friend, John O'Brien, would offer to perform what they had learned in the format of a skit. Mulaney would also frequent the Museum of Broadcast Communications, where he would watch archived episodes of shows such as I Love Lucy or The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
He’s starred on Broadway in the runaway hit written and performed alongside Nick Kroll in Oh, Hello On Broadway. The duo have since release a Netflix special of the same name, as well as Oh, Hello: The P’dcast, based off their characters Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland.
The Best of John Mulaney on
The Tonight Show (Vol. 1)
In addition to his work on SNL, Mulaney worked for a number of years as a stand-up comedian. He has performed on Live at Gotham, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, and Comedy Central Presents. Mulaney's
stand-up comedy album titled The Top Part in 2009 received some critical reviews and a stand-up comedy special called New In Town in 2012 moved him more in the comedy performance category. Both were produced at Comedy Central.
Mulaney's third stand-up comedy special titled The Comeback Kid was released two years ago, on Netflix. His second stand-up show, New In Town, which premiered on Comedy Central in 2012, is also be found on Netflix. Mulaney received a 2016 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for his work on The Comeback Kid, losing to Patton Oswalt's Talking for Clapping. Mulaney's fourth stand-up show and special, Kid Gorgeous, will be touring in summer and fall 2017 with a stop at Houston's Revention Music Center.

The characters in the musical are based on (and in most cases share the names of) real Gander residents as well as some of the 7,000 stranded travelers they housed and fed.

Little Feat in Concert
@713 Music Hall
Saturday 3/26/2022 7:30 PM
Though they had all the trappings of a Southern-fried blues band, Little Feat were hardly conventional. This weekend the group is in the Bayou City at LiveNation's 713 Music Hall.
(From All Music.com) Led by songwriter/guitarist Lowell George, Little Feat were a wildly eclectic band, bringing together strains of blues, R&B, country, and rock & roll.
Little Feat - Let It Roll
(From All Music.com) The bandmembers were exceptionally gifted technically and their polished professionalism sat well with the slick sounds coming out of Southern California during the '70s. However, Little Feat were hardly slick -- they had a surreal sensibility, as evidenced by George's idiosyncratic songwriting, which helped them earn a cult following among critics and musicians. Though the band earned some success on album-oriented radio, the group was derailed after George's death in 1979. Little Feat re-formed in the late '80s, and while they were playing as well as ever, they lacked the skewed sensibility that made them cult favorites. Nevertheless, their albums and tours were successful, especially among American blues-rock fans.

Jesse and Joy
@Bayou Music Center
Saturday 3/26/2022 7:30 PM
Jesse & Joy are a best-selling, award-winning sibling pop duo from Mexico City. This weekend the duo is at LiveNation's Bayou Music Center.
(From All Music.com) Jesse Huerta plays piano, lead guitar, and sings harmony, while Joy Huerta is lead vocalist and plays rhythm guitar. They both write. Their sound is a bright, warm amalgam of hooky rock, sparkling folk, norteño, pop, and cumbia, delivered by voices that meld seamlessly amid infectiously memorable choruses.
Their 2006 Warner debut, Esta Es Mi Vida, won multiple Latin Grammys on its way to platinum certification. 2009's gold-certified Electricidad went all the way to number three on the U.S. Latin Pop chart. 2011's ¿Con Quién Se Queda El Perro? won multi-platinum status due to the chart-topping single "Corre." 2015's Un Besito Más topped the U.S. Latin and Latin Pop charts and went to number three in Mexico; it took home the Grammy for Best Latin Pop Album. 2016's gold-certified Jesse & Joy was their first bilingual album; it contained some English versions of songs from their previous outings. In 2020, they issued Aire. Introducing reggaeton and trap to their production mix, the set featured collaborations with J Balvin on "Mañana Es Too Late" and Luis Fonsi on "Tanto."

Sunday 3/27/2022 7:00 PM
This weekend Esparza is at The Improv on the Katy Freeway.
During a stint in rehab before he was 21, Felipe was asked what he wanted out of life. As a young immigrant growing up in the projects in Boyle Heights (East L.A.) and then as a teenage father with a drug and alcohol problem, it was a difficult task because he had never thought that far ahead. Among the items on that list, "to be happy", and "be a stand-up comedian" - because of how he connected to an old Bill Cosby album when he was younger. Up until that question, Felipe was under the impression that life was over at 18.
