Popular globetrotting pop collective Architecture in Helsinki transforms the upstairs stage of Houston's Fitzgerald's into a throbbing, futuristic discotheque as its latest tour storms American shores. Formed in Melbourne, the ambidextrous dance band stirs fans with a tornado of flamboyant sounds, infectious anthems, and commitment-free instrument swapping. With hits such as “Do the Whirlwind” and latest single “Contact High,” lead crooner Cameron Bird and his cakewalking team of tunesmiths tickle ear bones and rehabilitate ankles in support of its latest album, Moment Bends. During the kaleidoscopic performance, the band seduces dance floors with 10-foot hooks and sounds culled from hypnotic synths, romantic glockenspiels, and strummed chest hairs. Filling out the bill, Swedish dance wizards Lo-Fi Fnk enchant with instant club hits and songs for strobe-light campfires, and pop enthusiasts Dom charm with stargazing Casios.
Friends and strangers gather around outdoor picnic tables at Moon Tower Inn, clutching cold brews and artisan weenies (think duck sausage with apple brandy or rabbit with bacon, wine, and herbs) nestled in soft pretzel rolls. The all-alfresco ambience at this dive bar/restaurant makes any meal feel like a chummy backyard barbecue, but with the added appeal of more than 60 beers on tap, and no curse-laden tirades from apron-wearing dads. This unique set-up, along with a list of no-nonsense burgers, has made Moon Tower Inn a destination recommended by both the Houston Chronicle and The Wall Street Journal.

Beyond Poison Girl’s bright pink entrance, pretty much anything goes. The schedule of live entertainment includes everything from soul DJs to Willie Nelson tributes. Out back, corrugated metal walls fence in a patio that’s complete with Cabbage Patch dolls and a statue of the Kool-Aid Man.
