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.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team?

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
