Get Real With Bobby Sessions, Help Houston Relief Efforts At DTX4HTX Fundraisers And Report To OCP Headquarters For The 30th Anniversary Of Robocop.

This was supposed the be the week of Starfest Music Festival, but if you’ve been following our coverage of the pop-up music fest, you’ll know that it just isn’t happening this weekend.

The thing here, though, is that at least we know that the organizers haven’t given up. And we know that they are shooting for a yet-to-be-known November date at a yet-to-be-disclosed Dallas location. We know. We’re confused, too.

But you see, dear reader, there’s a lesson to be learned here and it’s a very simple one: never stop trying. Seriously. It’s applicable to most plights of daily life. And it’s commendable that Starfest’s organizers are maintaining their can-do attitude even if it means more bad press and online ridicule.

So if you’re feeling like last week just wasn’t yours, then tap into that special Starfest spirit and use it to make the most of your week at one of these dope happenings.
