This weekend at LiveNation's new music venue its Khruangbin in Concert. The band comprises Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Ray "DJ" Johnson Jr. on drums.
Mostly instrumental, the band's sound has been described as soul, surf rock, psychedelic, rock, dub and funk with one website even describing them as "electronic".
The most commonly used term to describe Khruangbin's music is Thai funk, though the band members themselves challenge the convention of genres, publicly refusing to be pigeonholed into one particular label. As music journalist Rob Shepherd noted for PostGenre, "the [name Khruangbin], which translates to 'flying engine' or airplane in Thai, is perfect for their music as it often crosses borders and cultures."

Formed in 2015 as an excuse to get together and play the older traditional jazz classics, the musicians of Boomtown Brass Band evolved into a performing ensemble steeped in the traditions of authentic 1920s hot jazz.
The Boomtown sound begins with the classic New Orleans jazz style, travels north to include Chicago’s “dixieland” style, visits the early 1930s “gypsy jazz” guitar style—and finally adds in a touch of New Orleans second line for good measure.

Comedian Steve Treviño is “America’s Favorite Husband.”He can “speak wife fluently,” he never calls “the guys”for help on a home project, and he knows better than to “make his own decisions” since decision-making is a privilege reserved solely for his wife, Renae, alone. (LOL) This holiday weekend Trevino will be in northwest Houston at The Improv in the Marq-E Entertainment Center.

Cirque de Soleil - Alegria show has been reimagined for a new generation to fall in love with. A wind of change hangs in the air, as the aristocratic ideals of the old guard are challenged by the revolutionary ideals of a youth in revolt. It all starts this weekend February 29, 2020) at Sam Houston Race Park under their Grand Chapiteau throughout the month of March.
Featuring a soundtrack that incorporates an eclectic mix of sonic palates and stunning feats of circus artistry, Alegría earns its reputation as an all-time classic Cirque du Soleil show. Stunning costume design and vibrant sets allow you to fully immerse yourself in this kingdom on the verge of revolutionary change.
Alegría takes its name from the Spanish word for "joy." Cirque du Soleil's literature describes the show as "an operatic introspection of the struggle for power and the invigorating energy of youth." Dominique Lemieux's costumes evince a baroque aesthetic of decadence and ornamentation, while René Dupéré's musical score features a unique blend of French, Spanish, African, and Mediterranean influences. The stage and props are characterized by gothic arches and harsh angular designs.
