Bootown presents: Projectorphiles
About Bootown: Founded in the summer of 2007 by University of Houston graduates Emily Hynds and Julie Gomez, BooTown was from the start a collaborative effort. Other founding members included Greg Hundemer, Philip Hays and Cathy Davis. In the three years since, Greg and Julie have moved on to other cities, but the Town has grown into a edgy, indie theatre institution, producing a series of monthly storytimes, Benshi shows, several plays and more under the oversight of Artistic Directors Emily Hynds and Lindsay Burleson.
"...BooTown’s totally amazing, super original and completely hilarious show, Grown-Up Storytime."

"BooTown's a party!"
"How has Houston survived without BooTown's monthly "Grown-up Storytime" comedy bash?"

Mikey and the Drags (Houston, TX)
Mikey and the Drags are the type of band that you need to see late at night in a small dank club after you've put a few (dozen) down to really appreciate their greatness. Their garage-y surf-punk sound was obviously a void that needed to be filled in the Houston scene; last week they won an HPMA for Best Garage/Punk/Hardcore thanks in large part to their On the Loose EP.
A few members might look familiar from other Houston bands (drummer Andrew Lee from Wild Moccasins; organist Austin Sepulvado from Buxton), but front man Miguel "Mikey" Ponce is who really draws people in. His energy is unmatched by anyone else fronting a band these days in Houston, which makes the Drags quite addictive to see live. With Beach Day and Sons of Hippies. - Houston Press
