Houston, TX, April 2017 – Let’s run through it. A year and a half later, we witnessed (of some sort) the third installment of Houston’s own, Whatever Fest. This “grassroots” festival was a trip, no doubt. From show delays to an entire venue shift due to…..no rain(?), these two days proved to be something else. One thing is for sure, H-Town still knows how to have a good time and artists have taken note. Despite the circumstances, Houstonians could not have felt more at home.
Here are some stand-out acts from the weekend:
Walker Lukens- Post Dr. Dog era, Walker Lukens sure kicked off Whatever Fest right. Regardless of his Austin background, a green jumpsuit and high kicks shook the Modelo Stage early Saturday afternoon. This electric performance drew similarities to that of the The Black Keys and Spoon.
T2 the Ghetto Hippie- This man exemplifies Hustle Town Hip-Hop. Performing under ‘Houston Next’, this south side rapper shows promise in the scene. GH’s tracks, “Double Cups and Taco Trucks” and “Hustle Town” showcase his love for the H and his upbringing. His 15 minutes on stage were not enough to truly encapsulate this city driven talent.
