Houston’s Rise: DKEELA’s Hit “Do You Mind”

Brand New Houston invites all our hip hop music fans to meet up and coming artist DKEELA, because if you don’t know him… you ‘bout to be late!

The Dirty South always knew it was only a matter of time before Houston took back the reigns of the hip-hop world and DKEELA is here to help make sure that happens. Hailing from Kenner, Louisiana, DKEELA came to our third coast city in 2006 bringing with him a legacy of family music, which has clearly inspired his versatile and witty style that we’ve all been waiting for. His #BrandNew single “Do You Mind” unmistakably Image-1shows his ability to make powerhouse hits. This single is definitely a club banger late-summer anthem and perfect for the ladies with its Chris Brown influences. If you haven’t heard it yet, we’re telling you.. you’re ‘bout to be late!

It’s no surprise that DKEELA just graced us with a potential chart topper because he’s really not new to the game. You may have seen him performing at The Secret Group or opening up for Paul Wall, and if you search him on Vevo you’ll see he’s even a verified artist. The city of Houston stands behind one of our newest talents rocking the industry and Brand New Houston will for sure keep you posted on all the new moves of our top players!

Check out Do You Mind on all your favorite streaming sites and make sure you check him out at The House of Blues soon!

The Park People Are Taking Over..

Brand New To Houston…Park People 4

The Park People have arrived, but they are only here for a limited time. Nathan Sawaya, the man behind THE ART OF THE BRICK exhibition brought his talents to Houston with this must see installation until August 24th. The sculptures are currently at Allen Center on The Acre, but they don’t like being in one place for too long so visit them there before they move to 909 Fannin St. on Aug. 13–24 and these nomads are gone for good.

East Coast to Third Coast!

Brand New in Houston is Dallas transplant East Hampton Sandwich Co. with their highly anticipated Houston locations serving killer sandwiches and newsworthy lobster rolls!!

East Hampton came to Houston, and came with a bang! In the matter of a few summer months, they opened 2 locations inside the 6-10 loop, first in River Oaks District and next in Montrose. Huge balloon displays and endless lines led to the restaurant that literally feels like a beach vacation when you walk inside. Dishes for every type of diner, indulgent sandwiches, clean eating friendly salads and wraps, and treat-yo-self lobster rolls and froze’s.. you can’t go wrong!

If you wonder why we keep referencing the Lobster Roll, wonder no more, IMG_2395its because its just THAT good. Lots of fresh lobster, minus the filling, in an incredibly soft bun with some extra butter on the side. What more can you really ask for?! Incredibly cool and refreshing for a hot Houston day. And once you’ve had the lobster roll one too many times (if thats even possible) we suggest the Fried Chicken + Jack – crispy, bacon-ey, avocado-ey, little bit spicy, basically perfect-ey. IMG_2398

On the side, we were loving the Chowda’s because nothing more East Coast than Lobstah with some Chowda, amiright?! The @NewFoodHouston team literally liked all of them, but we will note that the Clam Chowder clams were perfectly tender, the Roasted Corn + Shrimp has a perfect kick and basically Gouda is amazing in everything!

And last, but certainly not least. Don’t even think about leaving without a Whoopie Pie. Seriously O-M-G soft cookies with a perfect filling. If your appetite even made it to the end of this blog, just go ahead and grab your keys and head to the nearest location because your froze is mixed and waiting, my friends. Enjoy, luv!!

P.S.

We also partnered with East Hampton for a giveaway to a lucky follower! If you read this before July 27, 2018, click here to enter for your chance to win $50 for lots o’ lobstah!
