Ian Moore, the Seattle-based, Austin, TX-born guitar player, singer, and songwriter, makes the proverbial renaissance man look lazy. Coming on the heels of Strange Days, his most successful record since his eponymous debut, and despite a never-ending cycle of touring, Moore offers a new release of bright, blazing rock-n-roll that combines his legendary guitar prowess with radio-friendly songs that showcase his elastic, soul-inflected vocals.

ABOUT THE 1859 ST. JOSEPH’S CHURCH | The oldest German Catholic Church in Texas and the oldest wooden church building in Galveston, St. Joseph’s, was built by German immigrants in 1859-60. Bishop John Odin, the first Catholic bishop of Texas, recommended that a church be built for the German-speaking Catholics of the growing city. The church was dedicated in April 1860 to St. Joseph, the patron saint of laborers. It is one of the few pre-Civil War buildings left on Galveston Island.

ABOUT GALVESTON HISTORICAL FOUNDATION | Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) was formed as the Galveston Historical Society in 1871 and merged with a new organization formed in 1954 as a non-profit entity devoted to historic preservation and history in Galveston County. Over the last sixty years, GHF has expanded its mission to encompass community redevelopment, historic preservation advocacy, maritime preservation, coastal resiliency, and stewardship of historic properties. GHF embraces a broader vision of history and architecture that encompasses advancements in environmental and natural sciences and their intersection with historic buildings and coastal life and conceives of history as an engaging story of individual lives and experiences on Galveston Island from the 19th century to the present day.
