IT’S SAFE TO say that everyone is pretty excited about Rodeo Houston’s return — including the Eli Young Band, which just announced a surprise concert at The Hideout on Thursday.

The Grammy-nominated band last played the Rodeo’s big stage in 2014, just seven years after making its Hideout debut. The return to the honky-tonk tent is “a nostalgic moment for all of us,” said the band in a statement, noting that the venue has “supported so many incredible up-and-coming artists” over the years.

Comprised of Mike Eli, James Young, Jon Jones and Chris Thompson, Eli Young Band is currently touring to promote its sixth studio album, out later this year. Thursday’s event, presented by Jim Beam, features opening act Disko Cowboy at 8pm. Eli Young Band will take the stage at 10pm, when hits like “Crazy Girl,” “Love Ain’t,” “Drunk Last Night” and its latest single, “Love Talking,” will have rodeo-goers boot-scooting all night long.

Disko Cowboy opens for the Eli Young Band on Thursday.

THE MEANING OF “cool” evolves. In the ’50s you might have thought greasers were cool, with their leather jackets à la Danny Zuko. In the ’70s, a long-haired activist or a Studio 54 reveler in Halston. In the ’80s, a Wall Street master of the universe?

THE NOT-SO-simple question “If someone knocks on your spiritual door, will you let them in?” is the inspiration for Open Source, a dramatic new song cycle for string quartet and voice by Houston composer Karl Blench and librettist Jacqui Sutton.
