The Band of Heathens
Guest Sam Morrow

Lobby Opens 6:00pm
When The Band of Heathens decided to dub their sixth studio album of original material Stranger (its first since 2017’s Duende), the veteran band, formed in Austin, TX nearly 15 years ago, had no idea how prophetic that title would turn out to be.
This weekend the group is in northwest Houston at The Heights Theatre with special guest Sam Morrow.
Although the name references the famed existential Albert Camus novel and Robert Heinlein’s sci-fi classic Stranger in a Strange Land, it also touches on the “strangers” who make up the band’s loyal fan base, who supported the band during this period with all touring canceled.
As co-founder Ed Jurdi acknowledges, it is certainly an unusual time to release a new album. “The strangest,” he says. “Maybe no time stranger. Since we started, there have been sweeping, revolutionary changes in the music business, but, in this global pandemic, we’re just a microcosm.”

@The Wortham Center
November 26 - December 24, 2021
The Houston Ballet brings back The Nutcracker to the Wortham Center this year after the covid hiatus.
The ballet's marketing people tells us, "Bring the family back to the theater to share the joy of Clara’s magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets this holiday season! Stanton Welch’s The Nutcracker is a grand spectacle of opulence and one of the most splendid versions of this holiday classic ever staged. With hundreds of roles and a myriad of exquisite details that will leave you discovering something new in every performance, Welch’s The Nutcracker is a positively joyous treat for ballet lovers of all ages. Rejoice in the return of this time-honored tradition!"
The Nutcracker we all know has become a holiday favorite and was created in 1892 as a two-act ballet, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (Op. 71). The libretto is adapted from E. T. A. Hoffmann's story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King".

Tchaikovsky’s music has always had great appeal for the general public in virtue of its tuneful, open-hearted melodies, impressive harmonies, and colourful, picturesque orchestration, all of which evoke a profound emotional response. His oeuvre includes 7 symphonies, 11 operas, 3 ballets, 5 suites, 3 piano concertos, a violin concerto, 11 overtures (strictly speaking, 3 overtures and 8 single movement programmatic orchestral works), 4 cantatas, 20 choral works, 3 string quartets, a string sextet, and more than 100 songs and piano pieces.
This weekend The Houston Symphony under the direction of conductor, Fabien Gabel and violinist Simone Lamsma will present his work durning this holiday weekend.

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox is a genre-busting, rotating collective of musicians and vocalists that reimagines modern pop hits in a style that recalls jazz, ragtime, and swing classics from 1920s, ’30s, ’40s, and ‘50s. As the group’s arranger, producer, and pianist, Scott Bradlee has brought together a multi-talented circle of performers who rework versions of popular modern songs. And the music videos of their collaborative covers have become viral sensations, with millions of views on YouTube: as of March 2017, Postmodern Jukebox YouTube channel has amassed over 600 million views and over 2.5 million subscribers.

Crystal Thomas is this weekend's featured perform at Jazzy Sundays in the Park at Buffalo Bayou Park. Thomas record label, Ediie Stout’s Dialtone Records, released her latest.
Mark Thompson of bluesblastmagazine.com back in April reviewed, "Now Dig This!" "On her latest full-length album on Ediie Stout’s Dialtone Records, Thomas quickly makes it clear that she is no stranger to the blues traditions that run deep through the legacy of Texas music. Opening with a brisk shuffle on Toussaint McCall’s “I’m A Fool For You Baby,” her easy-going style marks her as a vocalist who understands that the singer’s job is to make the listener feel the heartbeat of each song, to stir the emotions with sensitive phrasing and a mastery of timing.
