One of the thing that we highly recommend on our hot list of inexpensive things to do in Houston for couples on a date, is to visit some of the fantastic places where they can catch some incredible Houston festivals and lively free concerts in Houston.
There is always some good ol' foot stomping music being played somewhere in Houston's Downtown District. When the constantly changing weather cooperates with the outdoor shows, you can expect the crowds to be thick and tame downtown.
Two popular music venues for this seasons "things to do on a date for couples" are the Houston Sound “Fall Concert Series” in Market Square Park and Sunday’s “Concert In the Park” at Discovery Green.
Free Concerts In Market Square
The Houston Sound is a new kid on the block. It’s an organization conceived by Dan Workman from SugarHill Studios and Ross Wells of Zenfilm. Their mission is to remind the world that H-town has a vibrant, live and still kicking music scene. They are the masterminds behind the new concerts in Market Square Park.
The upcoming shows at Market Square Park that are scheduled so far are:
A Night At Market Square- Oct 16 2010
Robert Ellis and the Boys
Houston Sound “Fall Concert Series”
Tody Castillio-Oct -27 2010
Expect to see a fresh new look when you visit this age old Houston landmark. It was recently given a much needed facelift to usher it into 21st Century. The City Of Houston added a small stage area and the park now features two nifty dog runs, a few shade trees, a garden and lots of outdoor art.
This spot has been a mainstay of the city for beau coup years. It's bounded by Preston, Milam, Travis, and Congress. The square is on land donated to the city back in 1854 by Augustus Allen. I remember back in the late 70’s when I was going to high school in Midtown Houston, the old Market Square was a back street gathering spot.
It was anchored by Burton Tailors, the place where many well known musicians from around the country would come to have their soulful threads custom made and a head shop that sold some of those well remember old school psychedelic blacklight posters of Angela Davis and Jimi Hendrix.
Houston's Sunday's In The Park Concert Series
Two of the artist performing this month are Lady D and Low Man Joe.
Known as the “The Diva of Zydeco” since 1996 when she was received her first nomination for the Houston Press Awards Best Zydeco/Cajun Band in Texas. Back In 2003, she won the award and has been fortunate enough to get nominated each year since then.
If you have not heard them yet, hear is your chance to give Low Man’s Joe a listen. This up and coming band proved they can seriously rock the house and walked away as the undisputed winner at the Houston House of Blues and VH1 "Battle of the Bands".
