I’m glad that the Ball is back in a parking garage this year. Having it in the Astrodome last year almost killed it. They couldn’t serve real food because they had to use the dreaded Dome food. And they couldn’t afford to turn the lights completely on so the whole time your eyes didn’t know whether to use their rods or their cones. And the Dome swallowed the bands’ sound. It was terrible. This year, I’m sure, it’s back to its hip zany self.
If you live in Houton, you gotta check the Art Car Ball out. It’s the best party in town. And kids can come too. We’re taking Girlzilla, who’s been an art car fan since she was four years old.
