Doors Open 6:00 PM
(From All Music.com - Matt Collar) California alt-rock outfit Third Eye Blind are known for their bright, melodic sound, bringing together a mix of post-grunge and classic pop/rock traditions. The group scored their first hit in 1997 when their debut single "Semi-Charmed Life" cracked the Top Ten, helping push the eponymously titled Third Eye Blind to number 25 on the Billboard 200. The band built upon that success, releasing albums like 1999's Blue and 2003's Out of the Vein, both which continued to earn Alternative chart attention and spawn singles like "Anything," "Never Let You Go," and "Blinded (When I See You)." After taking a break during the mid-2000s, the group returned, hitting number three on the Billboard 200 with 2009's Ursa Major and cracking the Top 20 with 2015's Dopamine. Third Eye Blind have continued to expand their sound, working with Billy Corgan on 2019's Screamer and pairing for a song with Best Coast's Bethany Consentino on 2021's Our Bande Apart.
Third Eye Blind - Semi-Charmed Life
Formed in 1993, Third Eye Blind hail from San Francisco, where singer Stephan Jenkins made his name as a solo musician after earning an English degree from the University of California at Berkeley. Jenkins soon decided to piece a band together. After several lineups failed to gel, former Fungo Mungo bassist Arion Salazar joined the group, which Jenkins had named Third Eye Blind (in reference to the metaphysical concept of a mind's eye).

The Houston Shakespeare Festival debuted in 1975 when Dr. Sidney Berger, then director of the School of Theatre at the University of Houston, met with UH administrators and the Miller Theatre Advisory Board to enlist support for a two-production season of Shakespeare’s works to be played in repertory on Miller Theatre’s bill. Berger and UH theatre professor Cecil Pickett went on to direct a pair of plays each summer, performing free to the public at Hermann Park’s Miller Outdoor Theatre in this unique collaboration between a city and a university.

(From www.ianbagg.com) Ian Bagg started his comedy career in his native country Canada. He proceeded to do all the show business things that every successful Canadian entertainer does. He went to a “Hockey Night in Canada” game on a Saturday night performed at the “Montreal Comedy Festival ” kissed a fish in New Foundland and a “Comedy Now” special on CTV. So what does a Canadian do when he has done it all? He boards a train to New York City lives in a youth hostel and ends up on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien ” “The Late Late show with Craig Ferguson” and “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” It is not always fun and games. He was forced to do “Make Me Laugh ” “Showcase Comics with Louie Anderson ” “Fridays” on NBC and the “Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.” His new one-hour special “Ian Bagg: Getting to F*cking Know You” premiered on Showtime in April 2013.
Bagg has acted in Tim Robbins’ “The Cradle will Rock ” “MVP 2 ” and “MXP”. Fun fact: he’s the the only known comic to have worked for famed director/producer Judd Apatow and not become a multi-billionaire. Life has been amazing for Bagg being on such diverse platforms as the History Channel the Food Network the Biography Channel and being the first ever Canadian to meet three US presidents– Ronald Reagan Jimmy Carter and George Bush…although only one was in the White House at the time while he met one on a plane and the other at a hockey practice.
While working red carpet interviews Ian has pissed off Brad Pitt been hit with a champagne bottle and asked for chocolate covered pretzels by Alec Baldwin. You probably wonder what kind of man does this and without imploding? The answer is a man whose dog survived a three- story fall and who’s been known to think he is twelve–but may actually be twenty-nine or seventy-two.
Ian went to school to be an explosives engineer but a lucky chance at an open mic made him the volatile one. He may be in your area sooner than you think because this man-child does over 100 000 air miles a year…or you could listen to his radio/podcast show on XM Radio channel 160 or The Toadhopnetwork (The Ian Bagg Show.) He has performed two successful half-hour specials “Comedy Central Presents” and HBO’s “A Comics Climb” and has been seen on “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution.”
