Weekend Saturday
Entertainment Picks

Houston Astros
vs. Oakland Athletics
@Minute Maid Park

Game 2 of  the series
Saturday 4/6/2019 6:10 PM


The Astros open their first weekend home opener at Minute Maid this Friday evening and their promotions department is all revved up for Friday's street festival. But before we give those details Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle summed up their performance after Monday's first game with the Rangers. José Altuvé is hitting Valentine's Day: .214. Alex Bregman is hitting a bingo number: O-67. Carlos Correa is hitting Blutarsky's GPA. (Hey, put the decimal point anywhere you want, zero is zero.) But at least he has the legitimate excuse of having played in just one game.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
with special guest Lindsay Beaver
@The Heights Theatre

Saturday 4/6/2019 8:00 PM


Since their formation in the early nineties in Ventura, California, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has toured virtually nonstop, performing on average over 150 shows a year, and has created a sizable catalog of recorded music, with sales of over 2 million albums to date.
This weekend they make their way to northwest Houston's heights to The Heights Theatre.
When they started, during their residency at the Derby nightclub in Los Angeles, they reminded the world, in the midst of the grunge era no less, that it was still cool to swing.
     The band, cofounded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the forefront of the swing revival of that time, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing, and dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture.
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s all original core line-up includes Scotty Morris (lead vocals and guitar), Kurt Sodergren (drums), Dirk Shumaker (double bass and vocals), Andy Rowley (baritone saxophone and vocals), Glen "The Kid" Marhevka (trumpet), Karl Hunter (saxophones and clarinet) and Joshua Levy (piano and arranger).

Aaron Watson & Kevin Fowler
Sam Houston Race Park

Saturday 4/6/2019 6:30 PM


  Aaron Watson makes his way to the Bayou City this weekend. Watson it is said remains strikingly similar to the people that still dot his native West Texas. They’re a rugged people, proud of home but humble and hardworking, the first to help a neighbor but also fiercely independent. And  heis unquestionably one of them. “I’ve always considered myself an anti-rock star,” Watson says, his drawl cracking slightly as he grins. “People don’t like me because I’m a rock star. People like me because I’m just like them.”

Throughout his 17-year career that spans a dozen albums and more than 2,500 shows throughout the U.S. and Europe, 39-year-old Watson has stubbornly and sincerely identified with the everyman––even as he’s proven to be the exception to the rule.

The latest evidence of Watson’s homespun singularity is Vaquero, an ambitious 16-song set of character-driven storytelling, level-headed cultural commentary, and love songs for grown- ups that promise to further solidify his status as one of today’s finest torch-bearers of real country music.

My Lifes Journey
@Hobby Center
Zilkha Hall

Saturday 4/6/2019 8:00 PM


An Evening with C.S. Lewis – the year is 1963 and C.S. Lewis, the famous British author, is hosting a group of American writers at his home near Oxford. They are about to experience a captivating evening with a man whose engaging conversation and spontaneous humor made him one of the great raconteurs of his day.
     Seated in his living room and in front of a warm fire he recalls the people and events that inspired his thought and shaped his life; of his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien; why he nearly abandoned the Narnia Chronicles; how he came to embrace Christianity and of the American woman who turned his life upside down.
