Houston International Festival returns to downtown
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.
