    Dracula

    Houston, TX 77002
    Based on Bram Stroker's 1897 Gothic novel of the same name, Dracula is a stage production centered on a British solicitor who travels to Transylvania to help settle the estate of a count named Dracula. When the count is revealed to be a vampire, he takes the solicitor, Jonathan Harker, as a prisoner in his castle. As Dracula begins to hunt down Harker's fiance, a vampire hunter from Amsterdam intervenes and ventures into Dracula's castle to hunt him down and free his prisoner. The famed supernatural tale was first brought to the stage in 1924, and the play was a hit with American audiences, launching the career of Hungarian actor Bela Lugosi. Dracula has since been reprised in multiple stage and film versions, capturing the imaginations of audiences generation after generation.

    Team Spirit is the project of former Passion Pit musician, Ayad Al Adhamy. After a brief hiatus from music, Adhamy rediscovered his guitar and formed a band with his friend and collaborators Roman Tobias Pettigrew, Champagne Dave Weingarten and Cosmo Di Giulio. The four-piece rock and roll outfit creates a guitar-driven brand of power pop that flirts with the garage rock of the 1960s. Team Spirit released its eponymous debut EP in 2012, shortly after releasing its single "Fuck the Beach."

    Julian Casablancas + The Voids
    House of Blues HoustonOctober 31, 2014 8:00 PM
    1204 Caroline Street
    Houston, TX 77002
    As lead singer for the New York garage rock revival outfit The Strokes, Julian Casablancas was the the epitome of everyone's idealized notion of what a front man should be. His rock star swagger and flippant attitude toward the music industry worked perfectly and cememted his place in rock history. In 2009, during The Strokes' hiatus, Casablancas released an album of solo material which is clearly influenced by a nolstalgic '80s electronic sound and is made up of more free-flowing songs than his hits The Strokes.
