The Houston Zoo is transformed into a winter wonderland! TXU Energy Presents Zoo Lights celebrates its sixth year as one of Houston’s most well-loved holiday traditions. Sip hot chocolate as you stroll through the beautiful Houston Zoo grounds and take in the sights and sounds of the season – including more than two million lights! Fifteen miles of earth-friendly LED lighting illuminate our ancient oak trees and decorate the paths to light your way.
Sights to delight you include our Texas-themed area presented by TransCanada. Other features include the Holiday Train Village presented by Macy’s, the Enchanted Forest, and Candy, the interactive talking zebra, presented by H-E-B.

From legends like Dream Theater and Yes, to cult heroes such as Cynic and Devin Townsend, to modern trailblazers such as Periphery and BTBAM, to heavy experimentalists like Intronaut and Mastodon, the band has shared stages with a who's who of the genre's past, present and future.
This mix of classic and contemporary, timeless and topical is also reflected in the instrumentalists' evocative sound, which is just as vital in today's post-post- / anything-goes world of shuffled playlists as it would have been on the freeform rock radio playlists of the 1970s. The group's fifth album, "V," sees the group further develop their colorful musical palettes thanks to the addition of new drummer JC and the work of returning mixer Jamie King (BTBAM, The Contortionist), who also collaborated with the band on 2013's Billboard-charting "The Migration."

Intocable from Zapata, Texas was started by friends Ricky Javier Muñoz and René Orlando Martínez in the early 1990s. In just a few years, Intocable rose to the top of the Tejano and Norteño fields with a musical signature that fused Tejano's robust conjunto and Norteño folk rhythms with a pop balladry. Intocable is perhaps the most influential group in Tejano and their tough Tejano/Norteño fusion has become the blueprint for dozens of Tex-Mex groups.
