Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

July 25th, 2005 · No Comments

I was on vacation so I missed a couple of weeks of music. Sorry.

Here is what’s going on in town this week.

I suggest checking out Thursday’s show at Rudyard’s, which features Lanky, Tody Castillo, and Arthur Yoria. Definitely a good night of rock. Lanky does a great U2 cover, in addition to his own stuff. Tody and Arthur — well, you should know them by now.

On Friday, might I suggest you see Le Tigre with Electrelane and Origami at The Engine Room.

On Saturday night, go check out Sitka Sound with Pale, Svengali (from Austin) and Johnnie Goudie.
