All of you are inside the loop, because if you weren't in the loop, you wouldn't be reading this. But other people from outside the loop might read this. There are two loops: the physical 610 loop around central Houston and the metaphorical loop which you may or may not be in. In any case, I'll be going on a tour of some outside the loop areas in November. So make it a day trip if you live in the loop. Or if you live outside the loop, but near Houston, here are some great chances to see me perform or speak or workshop or to see some textworks made by me. All events are free. So now that you are in the loop, get outside of it. Here goes:
