Steel Panther

I've never passed up a chance to see the self-proclaimed "World's Greatest Metal Band" Steel Panther in concert. Michael, Lexxi, Satchel and Stix were supposed to be a part of the two-day Houston Open Air Festival, which was cancelled due to the ravish flooding of Hurricane Harvey.

Music fans were fortunate enough that several of those bands on the festival including Stone Sour and Steel Panther then scheduled dates at nearby venues. The Stone Sour, Steel Panther, Cherry Bomb Tour played the Revention Music Center on Oct. 15.

Christmas in Boomtown returns December 9th to Gladys City

Did you know that the first mention of Santa’s reindeer was in 1823 in a poem titled “Old Santeclaus with Much Delight?” So, in 1901, that first Christmas after the Lucas Gusher, the children would have been watching for Santa’s reindeer.

“One thing we like to do in Gladys City is to take people back in time. We want people to imagine that first Christmas after the Lucas Gusher blew and the excitement people must have felt,” said Museum Director Troy Gray.
