Wild Moccasins, New Groups Shine at Walters' Third Anniversary

Walters Downtown's Third Anniversary Feat. Wild Moccasins, Rose Ette, Black Kite, DJ Flash Gordon Parks Walters Downtown December 26, 2014

Friday night at Walters was a festive occasion, as the venue celebrated its third birthday at its downtown location after moving away from its spot on Washington. The venue has had a rough year after losing founder Pam Robinson in October, but it was still a real treat to see three of Houston's more exciting bands play to a packed crowd.

Filled with three great Houston acts as well as birthday cake and lots of dancing, the evening had enough that most cynical hearts couldn't help but have a good time. Opening up and filling in between sets, local DJ Flash Gordon Parks kept the night funky, playing disco remixes of new singles by Pharrell and D'Angelo, while also throwing in hits from Santigold and MGMT to appeal to the predominately indie-leaning crowd.
