Houston Calling

Southern Backtones CD Release, Houston Press blog article

October 29th, 2004 · No Comments

This just in from Houston’s own Southern Backtones:

Please come celebrate our CD Release party/Halloween Bash with Drop Trio and Tody Castillo at the Continental Club (Main near W. Alabama) this Saturday, October 30th.

Hey, the time change means there will be more time for music.

Dan Workman, producer of the band’s new album, said of the Backtones’ new release: “…By embracing Brit-pop and psychedelia, the Southern Backtones search for darker, more bohemian influences.”

This is going to be a great show. Seriously. You definitely need to come out and support these great local acts.

Drop Trio‘s new CD, Leap, was released last weekend. It’s an amazing improv recording–you have to hear it to believe it. Tody Castillo’s CD should be out sometime soon. More info on that as I get it.

And if you haven’t read it yet, the latest issue of Houston Press has an article on “blogging” that briefly mentions Houston Calling. It’s positive press, so that’s good.

In case you’re too lazy to click, here’s what the article had to say:

But there are also some more structured, focused local blogs. “Houston Calling,” for example, is about on the music scene here. It lists upcoming shows and includes entries in the journalistic “ten questions” format; the guy who runs it, David Cobb (a Houston Press contributor), has interviewed Tom Foolery and the Mistakes, Stiff Little Fingers and the Methods.

I’ll forgive the typo–happens to the best of us.
