Houston's Rodeo and Livestock Show continues to be our weekend entertainment picks during what can be called rodeo season in the Bayou City. Anton Zaslavski aka Zedd to his fans is known for his electo pop music, but has diversified his genre and musical style, drawing influences from progressive house, dubstep, and classical music. Zedd rides us into with his music Friday (see Weekend Fridays)

Fans of Kane Brown are so taken with this pop country star his latest album, Experiment is still making country music charts waves since its release last year. Brown wrote most of the songs himself.

Dann Huff, who co-produced Brown's debut album, is also the producer on Experiment. Brown said that he wanted to introduce new sounds on the album and introduce "more energy" to his style. "American Bad Dream" is a song that Brown wrote about the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. Brown said that he took inspiration from his grandmother, who was a police detective. (See Weekend Saturdays)
Houston's Livestock and Rodeo Show this Sunday Weekend presents the music of Los Tigres del Norte and their música norteña a genre of Mexican music, related to polka and corridos. Norteño is a musical expression from Northern Mexico. The accordion and the bajo sexto are norteño's most characteristic instruments. Norteño music developed in the late 19th century, as a mixture between German folk music (which was introduced to Mexico with the arrival of German migrant workers in those years), and local Northern Mexican music.

Houston Ballet this season as they say in their news release, they join ballet companies around the world in celebrating the 100th anniversary of Jerome Robbins’ birth. Who is Jerome Robbins?

Did you know it was actress Sandra Bullock that gave comedian George Lopez his big break in network television? It was her production company that co-produced the George Lopez Show that became very popular on ABC back in day. The word is she sent out a scout to check the clubs for Latino talent because there were no Hispanic shows on television.
Lopez has had a long celebrity career with controversy along the way. His continuing feud with actor Erik Estrada.
In 2014 Lopez was arrested for public intoxication after getting drunk and falling asleep on the floor of the Caesars Windsor casino in Ontario, Canada. The casino's security alerted law enforcement upon finding him sleeping on the casino floor. Lopez had performed at the casino earlier that day in the evening. He had another show the following day, which the casino canceled. Soon after, a photograph of a drunken and passed out asleep Lopez was quickly circulated around the web.
