On this week’s episode of SPACE CASE, it’s an exploration into a world of color. What is color? Can you own a color? One might say that all the colors in the color wheel belong to the universe, but Anish Kapoor would disagree with you… Enter, if you dare, a color fight for the ages!
On this episode of SPACE CASE, we’re headed BACK to Houston. After last week’s unfortunate announcement that Montrose’s beloved “Disco Kroger” will close it’s doors in 2021, we scoured the comments to see what people’s reactions were to this news and memories people had that were tied to this iconic location. While doing so, we came across something that we COULD NOT pass up. It was a video from 2008 that took place in the Disco Kroger and we LATER learned it also happened at MANY locations all over Houston. Hear about our findings in this episode about the legacy of Houston’s SEXYATTACK including an interview with one of it’s founders Julia Wallace.
