Vinyl Ranchs tribute to Urban Cowboy celebrates 28 years of hard-hat days and honky-tonk nights. Leon Lounges monthly country-music installment will feature screenings of the classic film. John Travolta (and his Wrangler-clenched butt yee haw!) stars as Bud, a young buck who finds work at an oil rig in Pasadena and becomes enthralled with the citys western nightlife. It all takes place at legendary Texas bar Gilleys, where Bud finds a lady, a mechanical bull and a whole mess of trouble.
Resident DJs Dave Wrangler and LJ Walker will spin a mix of artists from the flick, including Mickey Gilley and Anne Murray, as well as greats from the era including Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams Jr. and Conway Twitty. Shine your boots for a night of two-steppin on Houstons smallest dance floor. And remember to leave all the brawlin to the cinema cowboys and cowgirls. 10 p.m. 1006 McGowen.
