For the better part of the last decade, Lunaface Promotions has provided Houston music fans with top-notch showcases that range from classic hip-hop, rock en Español, legendary DJs, musica Latina, hardcore rap, local talent, and even jazz.
Founder Hector Del Valle is constantly in search of the next great show, something he learned from his years an an understudy of Jeff Messina and passing out flyers all through his twenties.
Lunaface celebrates its 7-year anniversary tonight with The God MC Rakim at Numbers (300 Westheimer). Here's a look of some of their highlights from the last seven years.

Action Bronson @ Numbers
Memorable Because: Bronsalino took the show off the stage, into the crowd, ordered a drink at the bar, then lead an impromptu parade onto Westheimer Road. It was wild and unexpected and simply awesome to see.
