14th Annual Houston Women's Festival

Men run Houston's music scene for 364 days out of the year. But the 14th Annual Houston Women's Festival keeps it from being a clean sweep. The women-centric event showcases the talents of independent up-and-coming artists. One of this year's headliners is multi-instrumentalist songwriter Carrie Rodriguez, who started out a few years ago just hoping to hit the road and play a little fiddle and sing with her friends. After being spotted at 2001's SXSW music convention in Austin, she quickly became popular in rock-and-roll-with-a-twang circles. Rodriguez recently finished taping Austin City Limits for PBS, and her latest CD, She Ain't Me, is receiving nationwide acclaim. She's a little bit country and she's a little bit rock and roll, but don't try to make her just one or the other during her performance today at 5:50 p.m. The full day of music and art takes place noon to 10 p.m. Jones Plaza, 601 Louisiana.
