Garland Fielder "NEVERODDOREVEN" Opening

Feb. 15 | Anya Tish Gallery

Look at his work or just the palindrome name chosen for his third solo exhibition, and you'll know Houston artist Garland Fielder is fascinated by symmetry. NEVERODDOREVEN features both diptychs and sculptural installations inspired by astrology, Mesoamerican culture, and psychology to create an experience, per the gallery, "born of mystery and monument." Performance artist Gerritt Wittmer will also premiere a musical composition inspired by the exhibition.

Free. Anya Tish Gallery, 4411 Montrose Blvd. 713-524-2299. More info at


Feb. 15–March 10 | Catastrophic Theatre

Equal parts raunchy, outrageous, and smart, this winner of the 2015 Lambda Literary Award for Best LGBT Drama grabs the audience for a wild ride through the life of Sutter, a young black gay man, as he finds his way.

Tickets pay-what-you-can (suggested $40). MATCH, 3400 Main St. 713-521-4533. More info and tickets at


Feb. 16 | Rice University

Described as “the ultimate environmental piece,” this monumental John Luther Adams percussion work will harness 45 musicians to transform a live oak grove at Rice University into an interactive musical experience. “One of the great things is that you create your own experience of it just by walking through the performance zone,” producer Brandon Bell told us. “It’s like a build-your-own-adventure.” 

Free (limited parking available in Lovett Lot). Rice University, 6100 Main St. 713-348-0000. More info at

Theremin Fantasies

Feb. 16 | MATCH

Apollo Chamber Players wanted to perform a concert with the world's best theremin player, so they Googled “best theremin player in the world.” Now Carolina Eyck will make her Houston debut at her eerie-sounding instrument alongside local and international talent.

Tickets $35. MATCH, 3400 Main St. 713-521-4533. More info and tickets at

Rodeo Clown Roundup Concert

Feb. 17 | Karbach Brewing Co.

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is still more than a week away, and many of the big-name musical performers have long sold out. But for now, we can forget all about that with Karbach's pre-rodeo that has all the necessary Sunday Funday ingredients to get us ready: a 5K/10K race, live music, and plenty of beer.
