Houstonians will have the opportunity to see a large volume of bands this weekend at the Main Street Music Festival at Notsuoh’s. For a measly five bucks attendees can expect to see over twenty excellent local bands including acts like Young Girls, Somosuno, and Spain Colored Orange. For the Reggae-minded music lover there will be Reggae Palooza 2010 at Jones Plaza with legendary Reggae and dancehall acts like Yellowman. For those of you who don’t know about Yellowman, he is truly a groundbreaking and authentic Dancehall toaster whose riddims have been used by people like Biggie, Tupac, and Blackstar. It’s very cool that he’s coming all the way to Houston. Main Street fest will be on Saturday while Reggae Palooza will span all the way into Sunday.
Besides the bounty of music this weekend there will also be an art event called the Nerd Garage Sale starting at 7 A.M. on Branard. Talking to a volunteer for the event at Brasil yesterday he described it as “It’s going to be a real garage sale in the morning but we’re going to use that to draw normal people who might not normally be interested, into the art show later in the day”. I don’t know too much else about it but it sounds intriguing.
