Houston's Weekend Planning Guide
is updated continuously

Welcome to the first full weekend of 2022. We continue to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic with our traditional and digital media telling us all about it.

Please this weekend call the venue to see if an event has been canceled or postponed.
The media continues to do their job giving us useful information for our safety and also scaring us into a world where, at times it perhaps it frustrates many of us.

Our scientists continue to study this pandemic with information changing as they get to know and understand more about how this covid-19 and its variations work. ( Please look at the story KHOU TV in Houston, TX produced recently. It may help you understand what's going on a little more- see below)

Unfortunately some of  our political and business leadership exploits it all,

Stay safe everybody and enjoy your weekend time off.

Mother Mother
@White Oak
Music Hall

Friday 1/7/2022 7:00 PM

The Canadian rock band Mother Mother make their way to Houston's White Oak Music Hall this weekend. Ryan Guldemond on guitar and vocals, Molly Guldemond and Jasmin Parkin on vocals and keyboard, Ali Siadat on drums, and Mike Young on bass. Longtime bassist Jeremy Page left the band in 2016.

The songs, in particular "Hayloft", "Arms Tonite", and "Wrecking Ball", became popular, with videos including cosplay and gothic fashion. Although no particular event caused the surge, the band's music did resonate with non-binary communities, as users played Mother Mother songs while discussing gender-related topics.

Hadestown intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, Hadestown is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.
