Drake Announces HAW Date at Warehouse Live

One day, I want to send a message like Drake does.

I want to randomly appear wide awake at 4 a.m., finish off a bowl of cereal (preferably Cinnamon Toast Crunch), get a few strong drags from a hookah pipe, check and see if my next awkward move can be flipped into a thing of greatness (seriously, lint rollers man!) and then tweet something like, "Cinnamon Toast Crunch...OVOSound.com."

And people would utterly love me for it.

Last weekend our beloved Canuck Prince stopped by in Houston to let us know that he was supposedly performing at Warehouse Live (kiboshed), that he could be a pretty good DJ next to DJ Mr. Rogers at 5th Amendment and Gatsby (two of the more popular hip-hop-esque Washington clubs), that he could go to a kid's birthday skating party and have fun (Drave loves Bun B's granddaughter and vice versa) and he wasn't at all upset about Rihanna breaking his heart (please, he dated a Caribbean pixie who takes forever to grant wishes; of course he was hurt). It wasn't until another one of those random 2 a.m. tweets of his that we found out what Houston Appreciation Weekend would be about -- at least the initial part.

UPDATED: Liberty Hall Founder Michael Condray Recuperating After Brain Surgery

UPDATE (April 11, 2:15 p.m.): According to Lonnie Brantley, Condray will be released from ICU this afternoon.

I last saw Michael Condray five years ago at his home outside Porter. I was working on a story about his legendary Houston venue, Liberty Hall, where Bruce Springsteen found his first success in Texas and where a budding guitarist named Billy Gibbons would occasionally work out. Condray loaned us some significant photos for that article.

One of the quiet giants of Houston's music scene in the late '60s and '70s, Condray is in Hermann Memorial Hospital following an emergency brain surgery to relieve pressure Wednesday night, according to an email from his friend Lonnie Brantley.

Brantley added that Condray is suffering from both brain and lung cancer, and is in dire condition. Informal vigils are planned for this weekend.
