Saturday and Sunday, October 12 and 13; 713-526-7662
Every year, this small festival has an intriguing bill. Like last year's affair, where you could have caught Lil' Flip and Gatemouth Brown back to back, this year's lineup is a study in eclecticism. HP Best World Music act DRUM, Philly R&B songstress Jaguar Wright, local rappers Big Pokey and Bobbie Fine, Beyoncé Knowles's little sister Solange, Step Rideau and the Zydeco Outlaws, gospel/dance group Ramiyah and blues-slinger deluxe Sherman Robertson are all scheduled to perform. There will also be plenty of food, art and a children's village.
