If someone asked you, "What's there to do in the Crossroads?", you probably wouldn't think live music. But you'd be wrong.

Jerry James is one of the Texas Country artists livening up the scene.

The 59-year-old Houston native strikes the right chord by playing a mix of cover and original music. James plays close to 100 shows per year because he loves to please the crowd. “I like seeing people smile,” he said.

On Thursday, he will perform at the PumpHouse Riverside Restaurant. He said that people should come support local acts and businesses.

Sing away your end of the summer blues at Two Step Dance Hall & Lounge. It's listed in my, Five things to do Labor Day weekend article.

Although the dance hall is known for bringing good ol' country music, any song is fair game in the Karaoke contest.

"You'll hear anything from songstress Etta James to rapper Eazy E," said General Manager Stacie Graves. Thursday will be your last shot to show Victoria what you got.
