Reggae in the Park
Saturday 4/9/2022 3:00 PM
This weekend reggae music lovers are making their way to Houston's Emancipation Park for Reggae in the Park.
Reggae orignated in Jamaica in the late 1960s. Today it is the modern popular music of Jamaica and its diaspora. A 1968 single by Toots and the Maytals, "Do the Reggay" was the first popular song to use the word "reggae", effectively naming the genre and introducing it to a global audience. While sometimes used in a broad sense to refer to most types of popular Jamaican dance music, the term reggae more properly denotes a particular music style that was strongly influenced by traditional mento as well as American jazz and rhythm and blues, and evolved out of the earlier genres ska and rocksteady. Reggae usually relates news, social gossip, and political commentary. It is instantly recognizable from the counterpoint between the bass and drum downbeat and the offbeat rhythm section. The immediate origins of reggae were in ska and rocksteady; from the latter, reggae took over the use of the bass as a percussion instrument.
Reggae in the Park is one of the most anticipated events of the year. Over 3000 people will experience the vibes of the most beautiful culture in the world.

"CRASH The Live Tour"
Saturday 4/9/2022 7:00 PM
(From all Music.com) Straddling the most experimental and mainstream sides of pop with ease, Charli XCX is just as comfortable working with cutting-edge producers like A.G. Cook as she is touring with Taylor Swift. As a songwriter and collaborator, she helped create some of the biggest pop singles of the 2010s, including Icona Pop's 2012 smash "I Love It" and Iggy Azalea's 2014 chart-topping hit "Fancy." As an artist in her own right, her work spanned the edgy sounds of her 2013 debut album, True Romance, to the more straightforward territory of 2014's follow-up Sucker, which featured the U.S. Top Ten single "Boom Clap." As the decade unfolded, she only became more prolific and eclectic. Along with founding her own label, Vroom Vroom, she issued EPs and mixtapes, including 2017's Pop 2, that allowed her to combine the different sides of her music in a fittingly freewheeling way -- a direction she continued on 2020's acclaimed how i'm feeling now and 2022's Crash, which revisited '90s and 2000s pop foundations of her style.
