  • 25 years ago The Fox Theatre put on the first of many great concerts featuring the legendary godfathers of Funk, The Meters.  Last Wednesday history came full circle as The Funky Meters graced the stage once again before a sold-out audience.  As George Porter Jr. and the rest of The Funky Meters took the stage, the room erupted with cheers. George greeted the crowd with his soul melting smile and said "Just like 25 years ago, we are gonna start at the beginning" and fired into a mind-numbing rendition of the first song off The Meters 1969 debut album, "Cissy Strut."

  • To call it “Hot in Herre” was an understatement last Thursday night when Nelly hit the stage at Cervantes' for a sold-out show. Labeled “An Intimate Performance by Nelly,” the pre-show conversation had people wondering what type of performance this would be. Would Nelly be pumping out slow jams, or did “intimate” simply mean we’d be up close and personal with one of our favorite rappers from the early ‘00s?
