in Houston. In this band each representative is also
a composer, unlike any other classical band. Music
is created with each member bringing their own piece
to make one magnificent sound. Two Star Symphony memorizes
all music and focus' more on the sounds of their instruments
than following along a sheet of paper. Their dark and
distinctive sound will impress listeners new and old.
Ancient Cat Society delivers amazing folk/bluegrass
harmonies by Buxton band front man Sergio Trevino and
the enchanting Haley Barnes, along with band mate Austin
Sepulvado on guitar.The group's bare-bones spirituals
of faith, doubt and discovery have drawn droves of
roots-minded, reverent hipsters to their performances.
The performance takes place in the former Stringer
Mortuary building located on the east side of Stonewall
just south of the downtown square in what is now occupied
by local artist studio, Downtown Art Party. Completed
in 1925, details of the building's Egyptian Revival
architecture can still be seen. Tickets include concert
