Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

August 16th, 2005 · No Comments

This Friday night, why don’t you check out the amazing
Sharks and Sailors [website] @ Mary Jane’s/Fat Cat’s (4216 Washington). The band is playing with God’s Temple of Family Deliverance, The Cherry Valence, and Those Peabody’s. Should be a good night. Sharks and Sailors, by the way, will open for Mono when they come to Houston on October 2nd. Do not miss this show! More information about this show (and many other upcoming shows) can be found on the Super Unison website.

It’s been a while, but Casino is playing a show at Rudyard’s on Friday night with The Addictions (a good band from Austin). Come on out and check out Casino’s new line-up. More information on Casino can be found on their website.

Also on Friday, Houston Press hosts its 15th Anniversary Party, featuring Hollertronix, DJ Diplo, & Low Budget. The show is at Bayou Place and should be a good one. More information here.

On Sunday, Fitzgerald’s plays hosts to The Dickies, Marky Ramone, and Morgue City.
