She emerged beside producer Galimatias in the mid-2010s with Urban Flora (2015), an EP that almost topped Billboard's dance/electronic chart. Baraz then signed with Mom + Pop, the label that issued a second charting EP, The Color of You (2018), and the number 43 Billboard 200 album It Was Divine (2020). She then became an independent artist with the release of the hazy EP Sunbeam in 2021.

Using his experiences growing up in Newark Bill Bellamy started doing stand-up while he was a student at Rutgers University. This weekend Bellamy makes his way to Houston at The Improv.
Bellamy quickly discovered how much he enjoyed making people laugh and began honing his skills at small comedy clubs around the country and soon was making waves in the New York clubs like The Improv The Comic Strip and at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
Two short years later Bellamy had earned a spot on HBO’s DEF COMEDY JAM where he notoriously coined the phrase “Booty Call.” The now famous late-night rendezvous moniker became the name for his first comedy special for Showtime; “Booty Call” was instantly one of the network’s top-rated specials

This Sunday its Jewel Brown headlining Jazzy Sundays in the Park. It was a while back Brown talked to Blues Junction Productions.com about growing up in Houston, "We had a choir at school and if you didn’t perform they would whip you. Then when you got home your parents would whip you. That’s just the way it was, but they did turn out some pretty good kids back then. Now they throw you in jail for that. You know what the bible says, “Spare the rod. Spoil the child.” But that’s life; to each his own. It was kind of tough sometimes, but there was so much love in the house that I never complained."

An unflinching memoir from the six-time NBA Champion, two-time Olympic gold medalist, and Hall of Famer - revealing how Scottie Pippen, the youngest of 12, overcame two family tragedies and universal disregard by college scouts to become an essential component of the greatest basketball dynasty of the last 50 years.
Scottie Pippen has been called one of the greatest NBA players for good reason.
Simply put, without Pippen, there are no championship banners - let alone six - hanging from the United Center rafters. There’s no Last Dance documentary. There’s no “Michael Jordan” as we know him. The 1990s Chicago Bulls teams would not exist as we know them.
So how did the youngest of 12 go from growing up poor in the small town of Hamburg, Arkansas, enduring two family tragedies along the way, to become a revered NBA legend?
How did the scrawny teen, overlooked by every major collegiate basketball program, go on to become the fifth overall pick in the 1987 NBA Draft? And, perhaps most compelling, how did Pippen set aside his ego (and his own limitless professional ceiling) in order for the Bulls to become the most dominant basketball dynasty of the last half century?
In Unguarded, the six-time champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist finally opens up to offer pointed and transparent takes on Michael Jordan, Phil Jackson, and Dennis Rodman, among others. Pippen details how he cringed at being labeled Jordan’s sidekick, and discusses how he could have (and should have) received more respect from the Bulls’ management and the media.
He discusses what it was like dealing with Jordan on a day-to-day basis, while serving as the facilitator for the offense and the anchor for the defense.

LiveNation opens its new music venue this weekend (Weekend of November 19-21,2021) with Willie Nelson. LiveNation says its a concert venue that willhave a capacity of 5,000. Located at POST Houston, the mixed-use complex at the former Barbara Jordan Post Office in downtown Houston.
This is the same week Nelson's music publisher will release his new album, The Willie Nelson Family. The record features the 88-year-old outlaw country legend singing and playing his guitar Trigger while accompanied by his musical family members, sister Bobbie Nelson (piano), sons Lukas Nelson (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, lead vocals, background vocals) and Micah Nelson (drums, bass, background vocals) and daughters Paula Nelson (background vocals) and Amy Nelson (background vocals).
Did you know? Nelson back in 1958 was a Houston resident or sort of --- he rented an apartment near Houston in Pasadena.
It was the critical success of his album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978) that made Willie Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music.
Nelson was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed in the late 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana.
