Miami vs. FIU Watch Party

Miami vs. FIU Watch Party
Event on 2018-09-22 14:30:00
Miami revives a crosstown showdown this weekend. And you don't want to miss any of the action. DFW 'Canes will be hosting a watch party at Dave & Busters in Dallas on Saturday, September 22nd, as the Miami Hurricanes take on the FIU Panthers from Hard Rock Stadium. Gametime is set for 2:30 PM Texas time. If you're planning on coming, please register through Eventbrite. (Tickets are free.) That way, we can get an accurate number of attendees. A few tidbits about the matchup: This is the first time Miami and FIU have played since 2007, and the first such matchup at Hard Rock Stadium. Miami took down FIU 23-9 in 2007 and 35-0 in 2006 at the old Orange Bowl — with the 2006 game marred by a brawl between the teams. Both teams come into this game with 2-1 records. Miami is looking to maintain its #21 ranking in the AP Poll, while FIU is looking for city bragging rights. FIU coach Butch Davis coached the Hurricanes from 1995-2000, and will be looking for a win as well. A word about the watch party location: Dave & Busters airs all games without sound by default, although we will attempt to get sound for this game. Each table can listen to the sound for their particular game through the Tunity app on their smartphone and a bluetooth speaker, so feel free to bring your own speaker as well. If you do, be sure to download the Tunity app on your phone. See you on September 22nd! GO CANES!

Austin Carr Bio

Austin Carr is a retired professional basketball player who played in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, and Washington Bullets. He is known by Cleveland basketball fans as “Mr. Cavalier.” He was part of the Notre Dame team which defeated the UCLA Bruins on January 19, 1971, which was UCLA’s last defeat until being beaten by Notre Dame exactly three years later, breaking the Bruins’ NCAA men’s basketball record 88-game winning streak. Carr holds NCAA tournament records for most points in one game (61 vs. Ohio in 1970), most field goals in one game (25), and most field goals attempted in one game (44). His record scoring average of 50 points per game in seven NCAA playoff games may never be broken. Recently, ESPN named Carr the 22nd greatest college basketball player of all time.

Carr moved onto the professional ranks as the first overall selection of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1971 NBA draft. His career with the Cavs is highlighted by his selection to the 1972 NBA All-Rookie Team, 1974 All Star Team, and finally the Cleveland Sports Hall of Fame. Today, Carr serves as the Director of Community Relations for the Cavaliers and is also a color commentator on the team’s broadcasts on Fox Sports Ohio. Carr’s #34 is one of seven jerseys retired by the Cavaliers.
 
The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience.

Josh Abbott Band

Josh Abbott Band
Event on 2018-09-27 19:00:00

Josh Abbott Band BioWeeks before its Valentines Day release on iTunes, the Josh Abbott Bands Touch was already well on its way toward being one of the most talked-about songs in Texas music of 2012. Granted, the hot-streak momentum of Abbotts career had a lot to do with that. In the wake of the breakout success of Oh, Tonight (which climbed to No. 44 on Billboards country chart) and the title track from 2010s regional smash Shes Like Texas, created a stir that reached all the way to music executives in Nashville and New York City. That set up pretty much any track that the 31-year-old singer-songwriter picked to be the lead single from his bands much-anticipated third album nicely, ensuring it was bound to garner a fair amount of attention. But from the very first time it was played in concert or over the airwaves, it was clear that Touch had a lot more going for it than just good timing. From the erotic tension and release of its slow-burning verses and soaring chorus to the dramatic crescendo of fiddle and guitars at the outro, its a song that captures every ounce of the passion, talent, and vision thats propelled the Josh Abbott Band to the forefront of the Texas music scene in record time. And as the rest of Small Town Family Dream proves convincingly, theyre here to stay.Truth is, thats been pretty evident for a while now even though the Josh Abbott Band has only been recording and touring for half a decade. Abbott didnt even begin writing songs until around 2004, when he was still in grad school at Texas Tech in Lubbock. A diehard Texas country fan, hed picked up guitar a few years earlier, mainly to strum along to his favorite Pat Green songs. He vividly recalls the epiphany he had at a concert one night at Lubbocks Blue Light when the notion of writing and playing his own music maybe even for a living first took root.It happened to be the Randy Rogers Band playing that night, but it could have been Pat or Wade Bowen or Cory Morrow, any of those guys that I saw over the years, Abbott explains. I always had this fascination with what they were doing. Id go to their concerts and thered be hundreds if not thousands of college kids singing along.That night at the Blue Light, I just remember watching the band and thinking, I want to do thisI think I can do this.Maybe that was a little nave at the time, he admits with a laugh, but the truth is, I guess Ive always felt like if Im going to do something, then I just can. And so he did. Together with his banjo-playing fraternity brother, Austin Davis, Abbott began putting that confidence to the test at open mic nights. A year and a half later, fiddle player Preston Wait and drummer Edward Villanueva came onboard, and the fledgling Josh Abbott Band was off and running slowly, at first, but not for long. We didnt record a demo until 2007, which was Taste, and then we didnt even get a booking agent and start touring outside of Lubbock until 2008, says Abbott. But after that, everything started happening so fast for us that we really werent ready for it at first. Wed start showing up at venues and thered be a lot of people there, and we didnt even have enough originals to play 90 minutes. And it was kind of a weird deal for us because there were a lot of bands on the scene that were a lot more tenured, and they went from not even knowing who we were to all of a sudden playing these co-bills with us within like a two-year span. I mean, we definitely paid our dues, but it all came together a lot faster than wed anticipated. For that, were so grateful.Abbott, though, was too focused on building his bands loyal and ever-growing fan base to fret too much about critics or skeptics. Booked to play towns like Waco where they could barely draw a 100 paying customers early on, hed once gave away 100 more tickets through the local radio station figuring that if even half those people showed up, theyd bring along friends, every one of them a potential new fan. At one particularly memorable show at the Wormy Dog in Oklahoma, he thanked the crowd of some 300 people by inviting every one of them to hit the merch booth for a free CD and T-shirt.We probably gave away thousands of dollars of merch that night, but ever since, weve done really well in Oklahoma City, says Abbott. Another night, I think I bought the entire bar a round of shots, and my bar tab was like ,000. But it was my way of showing everyone there, Im just thanking you for coming to our show tonight, because you didnt have to, and I want you to know I appreciate it. We have so much gratitude for our fans and the people that come to our shows. You want to thank every single person. When you do that, you dont just create fans, you create friends people who are gonna then go out and pitch your album and who you are to every single person they know.The results speak for themselves. Josh Abbott has ascended to that A-list level of the Texas country scene faster than anyone Ive ever seen coming from an upstart position, says Chris Mosser, the morning host of Austins 98.1 KVET-FM who also programs the stations popular Texas country Roadhouse program. And it seems to me that for a lot of the younger Texas country fans, hes definitely the gravitational center of the current scene. His impact with the kids is remarkable.Nevertheless, with great impact comes great responsibility specifically, the responsibility, as an artist, to continue to reward those fans not with free T-shirts and shots, but with new music worthy of their continued support. To that end, Abbott knew there was a lot riding on his bands third album. Fans in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and beyond helped the independently released Shes Like Texas climb all the way to No. 28 on the national country chart, and following it up was going to be a tall order.My main objective for this album was for it to be cohesive, says Abbott. I think at least half of the songs on our first album [2009s Scapegoat] were really good, but it wasnt our best effort. But we really hit a home run with Shes Like Texas in terms of creating a big fan base and a little bit of radio success and even a bit more national success than I thought we were maybe ready for or even going for at the time. So when we went to record this one, I thought, I dont know that well have another song go national like Oh, Tonight, but I do want it to keep the consistency of the last album. But at the same time, we tried to take it in a different direction, too.To wit: whereas Abbotts songs on Shes Like Texas for the most part paralleled the timeline of a romantic relationship, Small Town Family Dream finds him celebrating the independent spirit of the people who make his beloved Lone Star State well, his kind of Texas. Dallas and Houston and Austin and San Antonio, theyre all great, but the backbone of what makes Texas really Texas is the rural communities, explains Abbott, who now lives in Austin but still thinks of West Texas as home specifically, the small town of Idalou, right outside of Lubbock. The farmers and ranchers and all the other people who work their asses off while living in small towns all across the state this whole album is really an ode to them, and I really wanted that theme to come through in the songs.And it does from the opening, hometown salute of Idalou and all the way through to the closing title track. He also salutes the brave fire fighters and the communities affected by the statewide 2011 wildfires in the raging Hells Gates on Fire, and the plight of Texas farmers battling the recent drought in Rain Finally Coming Down. Meanwhile, the Adam Hood/Brian Keane song Ill Sing About Mine one of the first covers the band has ever recorded. While songs like the aforementioned Touch, She Will Be Free, Dallas Love and Hotty Toddy all prove that Abbott is still a natural when it comes to flattering and celebrating the fairer sex in song.But just as importantly, Small Town Family Dream, recorded in Denton and released, like the first two albums, on Abbotts own Pretty Damn Tough label, is also an ode to the music of Texas a rich legacy that has spawned not only populist icons like Willie Nelson, George Strait, and Abbotts college hero Pat Green, but such underground mavericks as Lubbocks acclaimed Flatlanders and songwriters songwriter Terry Allen. Abbott and band actually cover two songs (FFA and Flatland Farmer) from Allens legendary 1979 album, Lubbock on Everything, on Small Town Family Dream, while Green himself guests on Abbotts own My Texas.That was a pretty big moment for me, says Abbott, who has since shared a number of stages with Green. Co-written with Thom Shepherd in Nashville, My Texas is Abbotts unabashed salute to not just Green but all of the Texas country artists that provided the soundtrack to his college days not so long ago. A lot of those artists are still very much still around today, just as the Texas country scene still thrives. I just thought that it was time to pay homage to the entire reason why I fell in love with Texas country in the first place. I want people to hear My Texas and go, Man, I feel like Im in 1999 again, listening to this song.Its also his hope that people listening to Small Town Family Dream take note of the impressive, muscular instrumental chops on full display throughout the album. The Josh Abbott Band has undergone a few personnel changes in its short lifespan, but the current lineup comprised of longtime members Wait (fiddle) and Villanueva (drums) along with lead guitarist Caleb Keeter, bassist James Hertless, and Abbotts old college friend Davis back in the mix on electric banjo after a few seasons pursuing other interests has now played hundreds of shows together across Texas and beyond, resulting in what is easily the bands best sounding recording to date. On ballads like Touch and Dallas Love, the young players display the polished finesse of seasoned Nashville session pros, but on tracks like the anthemic Idalou, the saucy Hotty Toddy and especially the aforementioned Terry Allen covers, they sound fit to tear the roof off and go head to head with any other take-no-prisoners roots-rocking band on either the modern Country or Americana scene.I really feel like this is the band Ive always wanted, Abbott says with matter of fact pride. And it couldnt come together at a better time, either. Looking back over his career, Abbott recalls one of the first times he ever dared to not only dream out loud, but dream big.I did an interview for a Lubbock news station in late 2007, back when we first started hitting the road, and the reporter asked me, Where do you want to be in five years? And I just looked at him and said, I want to be one of the biggest bands in Texas music.Everyone at the time was like, Dude, that was one of the most arrogant things ever its never going to happen, Abbott admits with a self-effacing chuckle. But if you ask any sports team that starts out with rookies where they want to be in five years, if they dont say winning championships, then those are not the kind of guys you want on your team. From day one, my goal was, if Im going to commit to doing this, then Im going to do it, and Im going to be as successful as I possibly can.Five years later, right on schedule, hes close enough to that once seemingly far-fetched goal to reach out and touch it. But not surprisingly, hes long since raised the stakes.The main objective now is to make sure that the bell curve stays in our favor, Abbott says when asked where he wants his band to be in the next five years. For me, the goal is for us to be able to not just maintain, but consistently get bigger. I feel like Texas has really done well for us, but Ill never be satisfied. Ill never be like, weve got Texas locked down, because thats our base and weve got to keep growing, but I think our biggest objective right now is to get bigger in markets outside of Texas. Thats why youll see our emphasis continue to be on touring the West Coast, along with New Mexico, Denver, Kansas, Nebraska, Chicago, and even going East I think thats really important to do.And yet, even as he expands his horizons beyond the Lone Star State, Abbotts independent Texas spirit is stronger than ever. Among his goals from the get-go, he says, was for his band to distinguish itself as one of the most successful independent country bands of its era. And if theres a difference between that and what most people consider megastardom, well, hes quite OK with that, because success in his book isnt defined by the all-or-nothing fantasy of platinum-selling records and sold-out arena tours.Im sure that would be fun, and damn right we would enjoy that ride, Abbott admits. But if that doesnt happen, that doesnt mean we still cant sell 100,000-plus records, tour across the country and play to crowds of 500-1,000 a night just like we do in Texas. We want to impact fans that really care about our music and that are willing to drive up to two hours to come and see us play. To me, thats success, right there.And so far, the Josh Abbott Band has achieved that success without having to sign a deal with an outside record label. Weve had offers Abbott explains. Im not turning a blind eye to them, but if we ever sign one, its going to have to be a really good deal and one that makes sense for us.People who do sign with record labels shouldnt be crucified, Abbott continues thoughtfully. I mean, theres a real science to it, and I have a lot of admiration for the guys that have made that system work for them. But there really is another way. Being indie right now is working for our band and has worked for many other bands in the past. Its too soon to know if well sign or if we wont. For now, were happy making music and connecting with our fans.

Women’s Healing Circle & Shamanic Womb Purification Ceremony

Women’s Healing Circle & Shamanic Womb Purification Ceremony
Event on 2018-09-26 18:30:00
Ladies, we invite you to join us for an evening with the Siberian Priestesses where we will practice the ancient art of shamanic womb cleansing. Through these teachings and with the help of the Siberian shamans and Spirits we will learn how to cleanse our wombs from any negative emotions towards our femininity, any energy resulting from past partners, and any physical trauma or disease in our wombs. This is a powerful experience and is also one you can carry with you and practice again and again. When feminine energy isn’t flowing harmoniously, a woman is more vulnerable to utero-genital disease, early menopause, infertility, signs of early aging, painful periods, and generalized self- doubt.  Don’t miss this opportunity to find yourself younger, more vibrant , and healthier by releasing the negative energy that our wombs can hold.  Note:  Even if you have had your uterus removed for health reasons, this is a cleansing of your energetic womb which always remains with you.   Why is a womb cleanse important? The womb is an organ that receives divine energy from the source of creation. Located in the second chakra, this energy center collects and stores energetic information, documenting the stages of a woman’s life, and contains lingering energy from previous intimate partners. A womb that isn’t receptive to the divine feminine energy is no longer connected to the true source of material and spiritual abundance, thus affecting a woman’s ability to experience her full purpose and potential in life. Negative energy can develop when a woman does not know how to purify her energy after an intimate encounter. Not only does this bring an increased risk for developing gynecological disorders, but this negative energy can also pass on to her children. Purification practices can be used to release energies from past encounters, including those related to violence or abuse, and can also clear ancestral and karmic knots. The Womb Purification process will guide you to access the vitality of the divine feminine to heal, protect, and cleanse your sacred womb, achieve better health, gain inner harmony, and have an increased level of energy and prosperity in your life. What does this workshop look like? We begin with a short lecture to discuss the lineage, the energy of the womb, and the process of energetic release to follow. Following the lecture there will be a portion of movement to get our energies moving and activated to prepare for the energetic cleansing ritual which is performed through movement, music, and intention..

How Not to Be Intimidated by Poetry (And Perhaps Write Some of Your Own)

How Not to Be Intimidated by Poetry (And Perhaps Write Some of Your Own)
Event on 2018-09-29 13:00:00
Instructor: Lisa Huffaker Tuition: Pay what you can ( suggested donation) Not a member of The Writer’s Garret? Join here. In this workshop, we will work together to demystify the various ways in which poets — and poems — create an aesthetic experience via careful, imaginative manipulations of language. We will read aloud individual poems by a diverse array of poets and discuss the various elements of poetic expression and how those elements make meaning. We will concentrate especially on the sensual or perceptible rather than cerebral qualities of each poem. We will pay special attention to "seeing poetry": the poem's arrangement on the page. Finally, we will apply what we have gleaned from our collective reading to a series of short creative writing exercises designed to encourage further appreciation of poetic language as an artistic medium. In an effort to make this workshop available to the widest possible audience,  this class is a "pay what you can" event. In order to best honor our instructor's time and effort, a donation is suggested. For questions regarding the venue, please call Deep Vellum Books at (972) 638-7741 or contact cristina@deepvellum.com. ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Lisa Huffaker is a poet, musician, and visual artist. Her poems appear in Southwest Review, Poet Lore, Measure, Able Muse, Southern Humanities Review, and elsewhere. Her project, White Rock Zine Machine, offers tiny books by Dallas-area writers and artists, sold through whimsical vending machines. She is a classical singer by training, and sings with the Dallas Opera. She served as a Visiting Artist at the Dallas Museum of Art last summer, where her installation, Sound/re:Vision, invited visitors to interact with a music box Zine Machine, compose chance music, and create zines inspired by a playlist ranging from opera to gamelan.

Air 1 Positive Hits Tour – Food for the Hungry Volunteers – Dallas, TX
Event on 2018-09-29 17:00:00
Thank you for your willingness to volunteer with Loop! You have a chance to help a child, enjoy a fun night of music, and spend some time with your friends! Please join us in making The Air 1 Positive Hits Tour a success. The night features; Zach Williams, We Are Messengers, Joshua Micah, Aaron Cole and Branan Murphy.                    FAQs Q: Where can I contact the organizer with any questions? A: Please email: volunteer@loopevents.org   Q: Will we get a free ticket into the concert? A: When you sign up to volunteer you will not receive a ticket (seat) into the concert. We will let you take shifts to go in a watch, but cannot promise a seat. You may end up standing in the back. Please note, you will stay busy! It is our best intention to let you see some of the show and we will try our best to allow you time for a break. So plan on working the beginning, intermission, and end of the concert.   Q: How late will I need to stay? A: We will need you until approximately 30 minutes after the concert finishes, this may be as late as 10:00 or 10:30PM. So be prepared to stay and help tear down the booths.   Q: Why is it important that I stay up to 30 minutes after the concert? A: It's very important that you stay up to 30 minutes after the concert is over. When the concert finishes people tend to stop by the booths with questions or last minute purchases. The road reps also need help tearing down booths and it's much harder if they are left alone to do all of this. We understand it gets late, however, we ask you to stay the entirety of the shift.    Q: How will I know where to go? Or who is my contact?  A: Once you sign up, we will be sending you a couple confirmation emails with all the information you need. And if you ever have any questions you can always contact us at: volunteer@loopevents.org             FOLLOW US  FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER  @loopvolunteers  Stay completely in the loop with concert updates, fun challenges,  & more by following our social media!
