Reverend Horton Heat is a Texas-based psychobilly band, as well as the stage name of frontman, Jim Heath. The band mixes country, surf, punk, big band, swing and rockabilly into loud, energetic songs featuring humorous lyrics. Jesse Dayton is an Austin-based musician that offers guitar shredding, country-infused, Americana sound. Avenida Houston encompasses a 97,000-square-foot pedestrian plaza that runs the five blocks in front of the George R. Brown Convention Center and its surrounding areas: Discovery Green, Marriott Marquis, Partnership Tower and Avenida North Parking Garage, Hilton Americas-Houston and five restaurants. It expands the cultural landscape of downtown through the addition of many new works of public art. Two monumental sculptural works, Soaring in the Clouds by Ed Wilson and Wings Over Water in the Fountain of Americas by Joe O'Connell and Creative Machines, welcome visitors to Avenida Houston. Within the landscaped plaza is the Wharf, an intimate special event space. The $175 million transformation of the area began in 2013 and was completed in January 2017.
