I've actually had more than one person recently tell me they wish they knew more about the Heights house concerts that happen. Well, here you go!

Saturday, November 6, Rouse House Concerts presents Chuck E Costa
  • Guests should arrive between 6:15 and 7:15 pm for drinks and a pot luck dinner prior to the concert. No need to bring any food (other than a bag of canned goods for donation). Deb and Linsey will be serving red beans and rice and chili. They also provide coffee and lemonade but please bring your choice of beverage should you prefer something else.
  • Music will begin at 7:30 pm.
  • RSVPs are required due to limited seating and will be on a "first come/first served" basis. Due to guidance from ASCAP and BMI, Rouse House cannot accept payments prior to the party. They are suggesting an honorarium of $20 per person, which can be paid by cash.
  • To RSVP, please email Rouse House with the number of guests who will be attending. rouse_house_concerts@yahoo.com

Friday, November 19, 7:00 PM: Kolanowski Studio presents Vince Gilbert
  • "The voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar of a god..." "The lyrics alone are better than almost anything else youve heard..." Fort Worth Star Telegram
  • Technically this is a private party. Attendance is by invitation only. If you would like to attend, please email Kim (kim@kolanowskistudio.com) or Greg (greg@kolanowskistudio.com) and get on the mailing list. They will send you a form to complete to RSVP.
  • RSVPs with payment are required due to limited seating and will be on a "first come/first served" basis.
  • The cost is $20 per person, with all proceeds going to Vance. You can pay by check or Paypal.
  • Guests should plan to arrive between 7:00 and 7:30 pm for drinks and snacks prior to the concert. The Studio provides hors d' oeuvres and soft drinks but you can bring your choice of beverage if you's like wine or something else. Music will begin at 8:00 pm.
Friday, November 19, 8:30 PM: The Listening Room at Nia Moves presents Alejandro Escovedo
  • It's not a "house concert" but it's about as intimate as you can get outside of someone's living room. The Listening Room at Nia Moves was voted #1 music venue in Houston in the recent Click2 poll!
  • The venue feels pretty certain this will sell out and only has 30 tickets available as of 11/2. If you're interested in this great show, do not hesitate. You can buy tickets here via Nia Moves.
  • $32.50 in advance. $40 at the door if there are any left.
