2009-10-27/11-01 Weekly LOVIEE

If this looks light, it’s probably because all the Halloween parties are in a separate post made yesterday. If it still looks light, it’s because I was too busy with that post to try to fill this one out. I’m sitting here writing this very late on Sunday night, with exactly one–count it, one–event copied over from the monthly LOVIEE. No Facebook event pages this week; I’m doing good just to toss this out there as is.

I’m also making a change to the weekly LOVIEEs. Possibly temporary, possibly permanent, I’ll see how well it works. Effective with this week the weekly LOVIEE will cover a period ending Sunday night (was Monday night), and will now be due up Monday at 6am (was Monday at noon). So yes, only six days, next week will start with Monday and cover a full seven days again.

Tuesday 10-27

Blind Pilot at House of Blues (Bronze Peacock Room), 1204 Caroline. Doors 8pm, show 9pm, $14. Folk/pop band from Portland, Oregon. Featuring special guest The Low Anthem. 09-W44-1

Wednesday 10-28

Out in the Silence screening at Rice University Media Center, 6100 Main. Free for college students with ID, $5 for others. Filmmakers Joe Wilson and Dean Hamer entered into a same-sex marriage in Canada; the former posted an announcement in the hometown paper of Oil City, Pennsylvania, igniting a storm of controversy and prompting a mother and her gay son to reach out to Wilson with a story about a school system which neglected its duty to protect GLBT students. The film is a documentary about Wilson’s return to Oil City. 09-W44-2

Thursday 10-29

Roky Moon & Bolt at The Continental Club, 3700 Main. 9pm, no cover. I describe this band as Rolling Stones, Loverboy, Foreigner, a light sprinkling of Elton John, and a few secret ingredients thrown in a blender. 09-W44-3

  1. Reading this makes me wish I was back in Houston with you and the guys.

    You're doing a great job, dude! I don't care what anyone else says, you should be proud of what you've got here.
