Houston International Festival returns to downtown

Houston International Festival
The Chronicle's Allan Turner calls attention to today's opening of the Houston International Festival, which returns to downtown after last year's nearly fatal experience at the parking lots of the Reliant complex.

In the Houston Press, John Nova Lomax is highly critical of the festival's music bookings. Although Taj Mahal is a rare treat for Houstonians, I'm inclined to agree with Lomax -- especially with regard to the booking of Texas and regional alt-country acts. The festival once shined in booking up-and-comers in that genre and getting them exposure. That doesn't appear to be the case this year.
