Bun B/Trae tha Truth at Karbachtoberfest

Sept. 16 | Karbach Brewing Co.

If you didn't love them already, rappers Bun B and Trae tha Truth endeared themselves to Houston during Harvey by organizing a star-studded Hand in Hand Harvey telethon and conducting boat rescues, respectively. They're back as part of Karbach's three-week "Karbachtoberfest," where lederhosen and dirndls are encouraged and custom ceramic mugs overflow with suds.

Free. Karbach Brewing Co., 2032 Karbach St. 713-680-2739. More info via Facebook.

Texas Taco Music Fest

Sept. 16 | Discovery Green

While it surely will not measure up to Houstonia's recent Taco Loco event, a Texas-sized taco festival will take over Discovery Green with a cook-off, 18 big bands, climbing walls, crafts and whatever else they can cram into the space. 

Tickets from $10. 1500 McKinney St. 713-400-7336. More info via Facebook.

Flea By Night

Sept. 16 | Discovery Green

Every month, Houston's downtown park transforms into an eclectic flea market piled with unique local retailers. There's a little bit of everything—from jewelry to coffee to furniture to even eyewear—as well as food and live music. Consider it a one-stop-shop to find something special to replace your flood-damaged items.

Free. 1500 McKinney St. 713-400-7336. More info via Facebook.

Telepathic Improvisation

Sept. 16 – Jan. 7 | Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

Riffing off Pauline Oliveros’s 1974 score of the same name, this new film/sculpture exhibition from Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz invites audience members to telepathically interact with the people on screen. Consider it an opportunity to flex your brainpower (but hopefully not too much).

Free. CAMH, 5216 Montrose Blvd. 713-284-8250. More info at
