From Texas Standard:

Steve Earle. Beyonce. Buddy Holly. Geto Boys. Ornette Coleman. Ernest Tubb. Bun B. Selena. Van Cliburn. Johnny Mathis. Stevie Ray Vaughan. Did I mention Willie? If ever there were a no-brainer for Texas tourism, surely a museum of Texas music history would fit that description.

The Second Saturday Art event in the Lone Star Arts District features a name many San Antonio Art lovers may know, a voice that has been on hiatus.

I need a book doctor.

If you haven’t heard that term before, a book doctor is someone who will take a presumably moribund manuscript, put it on a strict regimen of big picture prescriptions – a look with a tongue depressor down the throat of the thing, shining a light there to see about improving development, structure, organization, and flow. The closer, more surgical examination to get at finer, more granular line edits can go to an editor or proofreader. A book doctor looks at the macroeconomics of these created worlds.


From an exhibition closing to Christopher Cross to a killer Houston band, the weekend is here. 

First off, a major exhibition closes this Sunday, but McNay Director Rich Aste says you've got one last chance to catch it.

"Yeah, it's a heartbreaking moment for us to say goodbye to Monet to Matisse, a Century of French Moderns, really showcasing the avant garde that blazed new trails for artistic excellence in the last century," he says.
