Houston Calling

Houston Music Rountable + The week in Houston rock

October 5th, 2004 · No Comments

This week, join Ian Varley (of Drop Trio fame) for a musician meetup in conjunction with Meetup.com. Many may be familiar with Meetup.com, which isa website where various interest groups can meet up in person. The Musician group in Houston has more members than any other city–close to 200 musicians–but it’s been petering out lately due to lack of organization. So, it’s being combined with the regular music roundtable, in order to improve both events.

If you’ve never seen the Houston Musicians Meetup page, check it out here.

You can sign up and find out more (there are meetups on a lot of other subjects in the Houston area) at the website.

As always, the mixer is at the Volcano (2349 Bissonnet @ Morningside) and goes from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. There’s no cover, and the bar serves drinks at happy hour prices for attendees (maybe free appetizers as well).
