Weekend Saturday is updated continuously

and Kylie Frey

Gates Open 5:30 PM
Parker McCollum hails from Conroe, Texas. This weekend McCollum will be close to his neighborhood; The Woodlands at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion with Flatland Cavalry and Kylie Frey.
McCollum grew up surrounded by music, learning how to play violin for the school orchestra and then picking up a guitar when he became a teenager. That is what All Music.com says and soon afterward, he started penning his own songs, which led to him playing local gigs when he was in his late teens. McCollum moved to Austin after his high school graduation, and he balanced college with performing for a while, but music soon won out. He performed on his own and took a gig supporting Six Market Blvd.
Based in Austin, Parker McCollum is an artist who draws inspiration from rock & roll, classic singer/songwriters, soul, indie rock, and the Red Dirt country of his native Texas.
He released his debut album, The Limestone Kid, in 2015, but he first cracked the Billboard charts in 2017 with a pair of EPs, Probably Wrong: Session One and Session Two, each of which made a strong showing on the Heatseekers chart in advance of his second album. McCollum eventually signed with Universal for 2021's Gold Chain Cowboy.
McCollum toured hard over the next year, and after netting a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell, he announced in 2019 that he'd signed with Universal Music Group. His first major-label single, "Pretty Heart," arrived later that year, followed by the EP Hollywood Gold in 2020. 2021's "To Be Loved by You" marked the first offering from McCollum's debut major-label full-length, Gold Chain Cowboy.

The Causeways with Backward Scheme
and Bipolar Joyride
@White Oak Music Hall
Saturday 10/2/2021 8:00 PM
The Wirral based quartet, The Causeways, have recently revealed their bright and warm debut single "Quietly". The band's first single was released back in November of 2020 and is the first slice of music we've ever heard from the foursome, but what a debut effort it is.
The band is comprised of Will Cartmell, Matthew Wilson, and Ryan Robinson who have all been playing music together since they were fifteen, and with the addition of Sam Silver last off all the band was fully formed.
The Causeways have influences that are clear to see, with Merseyside acts such as The Coral and The Beatles being two big bands that the quartet draws inspiration from. A more comparable band would be The Kooks as The Causeways too have acoustic guitars wrapped up in warm vocals with a distinctive sound that has a hazy and yet vibrant tone.
Being wrapped around with amazing and influential bands has really rubbed off on the band, and with the sound they've found for themselves, it seems like they're going down the route of being one of those bands. Just do everyone a favour and go listen to their debut release, with more planned for 2021 you're not going to be left disappointed.

The Plastic Cup Boys: Na'im Lynn and Will "Spank" Horton seems to be the surest thing to come out of Jersey and it happened way before MTV was even a reality. This weekend they will be at Houston's Impro.
But you can blame it on the moon men or some other inter-galactic event but there's no denying that the universe was blessed with the descent of Na'im Lynn landing in a small town named Hillside two miles east of Newark Liberty Airport (even then he was so fly he was two miles ahead of the plane!).
Nevertheless it was obvious a star was born. Growing up using Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphy for muses it wasn't long before Na'im developed a knack for out-of-this-world comedy that has him skyrocketing to the top as the next big thing.
Best known as the opening act for his friend famed comedian Kevin Hart Na'im travels the world over blazing the stage as part of Hart's continuous tour that has produced two genius comedic movies - "Seriously Funny" and "Laugh at my Pain", which Na'im also stared in.
He helped me early, Na'im said of Hart. He taught me how to be more personal with my jokes. He was like yeah I don't care if you bomb just go up there and try some new s#it!'. Once he fed me that knowledge I took it and ran and I became really good. And from me becoming good he's become great because he has to get up there and follow me.
And speaking of followers, Lynn thousands of devout users and followers on Facebook and Twitter are privy to his hilarious up-to-the-minute antics and serve as a testing ground for his ever evolving material - much like his fellow classmates at Temple University who gave him his first standing ovation as a novice comic on the school's stage.
The then aspiring physical therapist ditched that career and a job at US Airways to pursue his passion. A week after calling it quits with the friendly skies he won a showcase with NBC thus starting a ripple effect that has had him riding a wave of success ever since with spots on Comedy Central HBO BET TvOne UPN VH1 and Jamie Foxx's Foxxhole Comedy Series just to name a few. Inspired by comedic legends and presently working with some of comedy's greats Na'im has no choice but to take his position on the brink of major stardom to achieve his full potential as a comedic dynamo. Will "Spank"Horton is an explosive performer unlike any other whose ability to engage an audience is nationally known. This hilariously cool comedian takes charge while he holds the audience's attention with his lightening wit spontaneous snaps and improvisation. His stand-up comedy performance is at its peak and he is heralded by critics as one of the most talented new comedians to come out of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. He has toured with BET's Comic View and has appeared at various comedy clubs around the country such as the Laff House (Philadelphia) House of Comedy (Virginia) Jakes On US (Washington D.C.) and Boston Comedy (New York) to name just a few.
