Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

February 1st, 2005 · No Comments

I see that The Oots [website] are playing again this week (Thursday @ Rhythm Room). I highly suggest you go check these guys out.

On Friday night at Rudyard’s, Fondue Monks [website] are playing around 10:30. The guys have supposedly been writing some new stuff for a 2005 release so maybe we’ll get a preview. Either way, it’ll be an entertaining show.

By the End of Tonight [website] is playing on Sunday at Fat Cat’s with MC Chris and O Pioneers! You’ve got to see this band to believe it. Good stuff. You can get their 2004 release, the Fireworks On Ice EP, from Temporary Residence Records.
