Local act Giant Kitty announced on Sunday their appearance at the festival would be canceled. Other acts like Genesis Blu, Rose Ette, Roky Moon & BOLT and SoBe Lash have also canceled their engagements with the Houston festival. In a statement released by the act’s record label in part stated the cancelations were ‘in solidarity,’ and the ‘transphobic comments’ were hateful and heartbreaking.

Houston Whatever Festival founder Jason Price last week, in a Las Vegas Airport published a social media post depicting a person in a dress, waiting for TSA. “I mean, I know it’s Vegas and anything can happen here and does, but he should really be wearing some more clothes going through security at the airport. Yes, I did say HE.”

“I mean, I know it’s Vegas and anything can happen here and does, but he should really be wearing some more clothes going through security at the airport. Yes, I did say HE.”

The post has since been removed from social media after provoking feedback. Price issued an apology Friday evening in part apologizing for his post and adding, “I have nothing but love in my heart and never want to see anybody uselessly hurt. Words are powerful folks. Life is full of lessons and I guess I’m still in class.”

The Houston Whatever Fest website describes the festival as the ‘City’s most eclectic street festival‘ that has more than 80 acts on 5 stages and features diverse mix music genres, top-tier comedy acts and a variety of art experiences.

Country Music Queen Dolly Parton Gave The Show Of Her Life In Houston On Monday Night Surrounded By Friends And Fans.

HOUSTON  (December 6, 2016)  As one of the first major country artists to become an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ+ rights Dolly Parton and her caravans; Dolly I, Dolly II and Dolly III (the code names for Parton’s personal tour busses) rolled into Houston to deliver some Pure & Simple  listening pleasure for thousands of Houston fans Monday evening at NRG Arena.

Pure & Simple is anything but what the country music icon furnished for her adoring fans that filled the arena for Parton’s stop on her final leg of the North American tour. Feeling more like an intimate ‘family’ gathering than a sold out concert, you could not help feeling the ‘Warmth & Love’ that Parton radiated from stage to concert goers.

With no opening act, the tour ditched the fancy mega-tour smoke and lighting, opting for a more ‘simple’ approach of echoes of cascading white elegant sheer and Parton’s personal trio of musicians; longtime band members Richard Dennison, Kent Wells and Tom Rutledge. No drummer in sight, only the tremendous harmonies of Parton filled the night.

For two blissful hours Parton filled the area with ‘Pure & Simple’ love, baring her signature headset microphone, and in a stunning red sequined dress after the intermission as she strutted from one side of the stage to another leading us on a magicial journey into her classic hits like “Islands in the Stream” and “I Will Always Love You.”

The 29-song set list was not enough for Houston fans. Parton crammed as many hits possible into her two sets. – “If I Had a Hammer” and “Blowin’ in the Wind” among them, but capturing the crowd in a show-stopping, breathtaking performance of “Little Sparrow,” left Houston hungry for more and without a doubt in anyone’s mind, Parton has not lost it. She’s still the only Dolly.
