Discovery Green’s Grace Event Lawn
Sunday, October 1, 2017
Our second Canned Acoustica event kicks off the fall season with all-acoustic performances by:
Folk Family Revival – a mix of the rootsy stomp of the Southern states with the trippy swoon of the West Coast
Another Run – merges indie rock with soulful melodies, catchy enough to make pop artists jealous.
Deep Cuts – Houston’s most beautiful boy band
Guilla – a rap artist known for his juxtaposing style and extreme emphasis on percussion
Boomtown Brass Band – Houston’s only dedicated traditional jazz ensemble, specializing in performing the hot jazz of 1920s
Join us for an evening of acoustic music from some of Houston’s top talent, featuring emcee Genesis Blu! Please bring a “can-tribution” for the Houston Food Bank. When people come together and share their support, especially when there is great music to enjoy, it’s always a special event.
The Canned Acoustica series presents some of the best musical acts in town in an unplugged concert on Discovery Green’s Grace Event Lawn as part of the XFINITY Entertainment Series. This much-loved Houston series returns to challenge bands to rearrange and reimagine songs using acoustic instruments only, resulting in unique, intimate and soulful performances.
Rap, metal, indie, rock, soul — each concert includes a mix of genres by local and regional talent. Canned Acoustica was named best concert series by the Houston Press.
Like all Discovery Green events, this free event is made possible by contributions from park users, foundations and sponsors.
