Scott will play tunes from his “Great Big World” CD in a featured set in the upstairs listening room at this historic venue in Houston’s Westheimer neighborhood. Free admission. Special guest and start time TBD. AvantGarden inhabits a history-embedded turn-of-the-century Kraft house. Among the very last remaining midtown/lower Westheimer structures surviving the relentless erasure of historic buildings from Houston’s collective memory, the venue has transitioned identities as a private home where Howard Hughes played as a child, later a half way house, and finally, an abandoned crack house, before it was purchased and twice repaired by Mariana Lemesoff, once in 1996 as The Mausoleum, a bar, live music and artistic venue, re-opening in 2000 as Helios, which continued supporting the creative community. In 2007 it received a complete restoration/adaptation as AvantGarden, which draws patrons both from surrounding Montrose and Museum District neighborhoods and from afar with its plethora of nightly events.
