Damien Escobar once a self-proclaimed retired artist is now back to being one of the world’s top violinist. This weekend Escobar is at LiveNations's HOB Houston in GreenStreet Downtown.

A lot of people have taken note, but so have the media - the gatekeepers of information, with major feature stories in People Magazine, Huffington post, CNN, The NY Daily News and Chicago Tribune. The star even found his way back on national television, performing on WETV’s “David Tutera’s: Unveiled”. Since then invitations to appear on television haven’t ceased; landing Escobar in the interviewee chair at every major network on both a local and national scale including Fox News, The Hallmark Channel, The Katie Couric Show, Empire Live , NBC, CBS and ABC.

Slipknot is well known for its attention-grabbing image, aggressive style of music, and energetic and chaotic live shows. This weekend the expressive metal band with Killswitch Engage & Fever 333 will be performing in the Woodlands at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.

It was about five years ago Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor interviewed by nme.com opened up about why he thinks certain people hate the band. Taylor said, "that the band seems to inspire hatred in some people because “people thought we were just gonna be in and out.”

Across those years, the ‘Knot have succeeded where many rock bands have failed – in graduating to arenas and festival headline slots without losing any of their intensity, and in putting on a spectacle without relying on gimmickry.

From cackling witches to crashing guillotines, Berlioz’s mind-bending Symphonie fantastique is classical music’s wildest ride—and it’s especially appropriate for Halloween weekend!

This program also features Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s lavishly melodic Symphonic Variations on an African Air, based on the African American spiritual I’m Troubled in Mind.

It’s the Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) and the Burgos Family is getting ready to celebrate this important date to them. It is a yearly tradition in Hacienda Calvario where they get together to celebrate. As they share how this celebration has been of great value to their lives, they also explain the meaning of every element presented: why are altars made? What objects can decorate them? What food is eaten? Why it is important to have candles, the traditional “calaveritas (verses that rhyme)?

La Catrina (Death) roams around, reminding us that life is beautiful, and we need to take advantage of it. Where do we go after we die? That is the main question each character asks among them.

Harlow followed GAZEBO with his first ever headline North American tour, followed by a string of select dates as support for Grammy-winning rock band Portugal. The Man.

Presented by Ballet 5:8
Hobby Center

Saturday 10/30/2021 8:00 PM

Julianna Rubio Slager’s 2021 World Premiere Reckless brings an ancient story of tragedy and incredible compassion into the 21st Century. Cliché stereotypes fall apart when we look at someone’s life through their own eyes. The stories of those in the sex trade are broken, painful, and often misunderstood. Reckless explores the story of Gomer, the wife of the prophet Hosea. The story of Gomer has been retold in countless lives, frequently ending in tragedy and sorrow. In this story we see the reckless love of God through Hosea, as he runs to the darkest street corners to redeem the one He loves. The ballet is about sex-trafficking, we recommend it for audiences 13 and older due to those themes. There is no nudity or vulgar dancing.
