Day 2 of the Houston Press Best of Houston® BestFest is underway. Nick Gaitain & the Umbrella Man opened with a set of countrified conjunto, steamy barrio ballads and one of our favorite Los Lobos songs, "I Got Loaded." The most prophetic line of the day may be from a previous Best of Houston® winner, "I Found My Weakness In You": "Looks like the sun is comng soon."
We hope you'll come soon, too. No need to wait until the end of the Texans-New Orleans Saints game, either. It's showing on the big screen next to the main stage, where Ryan Scroggins and some different Texans, the Trenchtown Texans, will pressure drop in a few minutes.
10-7 Texans in the second quarter.
