Wednesday To-Do: Lexington Porter

Lexington Porter plays Porters Jazz Cafe Wednesday night.
  • Lexington Porter plays Porter's Jazz Cafe Wednesday night.

7 p.m. Porter's Jazz Cafe. Free.

Here's a great way to kick off the holiday season as well as a chance to witness the continuation of a musical legacy. Lexington "Lex" Porter, the grandson of Art Porter Sr. and the nephew of Art Porter Jr., the two Little Rock jazz legends, is a senior at North East School of Arts in San Antonio, and he began playing violin in third grade.

He's been a member of the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio since 2005, and in June 2010, he traveled to China to play with the YOSA Philharmonic, performing in Beijing, Hangzhou, Shanghai and several other cities. Though there is no cover charge, donations will be accepted to benefit the Art Porter Music Education Inc. Scholarship.

There's an early-bird special at 5 p.m. with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and drink specials. Lex will perform with a variety of local musicians.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
