Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

June 22nd, 2005 · No Comments

Tonight, Houston’s Sitka Sound opens for The Robot Ate Me w/ Over Sea Under Stone @ The Proletariat. On Friday, Calvin from Pale takes a break from their U.S. tour and plays an acoustic set at Helio’s.

Also on Friday, Channel 13 will be filming local staples Fondue Monks at Uncle Alberts as a tie-in with the Freedom Fest the band is playing on July 4th. I assume other local acts will also be included. Uncle Albert’s address is 6172 Barker Cypress Rd. (between Keith Harrow and W. Little York).
