Both development and attention around the Greater Second Ward are at an all-time high, thanks in no small part to the efforts of the neighborhood’s artists and musicians. Now all of the forces that have combined to make the East End so buzzworthy — creativity, ingenuity, community pride — will come to a head at the Wicked East End Music Showcase, which scatters nearly 50 Houston-based performers over five of the area’s major venues, linking them all with a bike path, pop-up B-Cycle stations or a shuttle bus for only $10 more than the $20 advance price. Participating rooms include Bohemeo’s, Wonky Power Live, Super Happy Fun Land, the White Swan and Arlo’s Ballroom. While some artists will be familiar to local music fans (GT Garza, Gio Chamba, Deep Cuts, Free Radicals, etc.), many others may not be, all the more reason to hop on a bike or the bus. All proceeds go to the East End Foundation.
