Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

October 10th, 2005 · No Comments

Tonight (Monday, 10.10.05), Jethro Tull is playing at Jones Hall. I caught the band’s Verizon show a few years and it was incredible. If you’re not doing anything, I suggest checking it out.

For some reason, Tuesday night is *the* night of music this week in Houston. Seventies pop-punk heroes Gang of Four play The Meridian with Morningwood and Men, Women & Children. Also, Acid Mothers Temple play with The Occasion and God’s Temple of Family Deliverance at The Proletariat. For the indie-folkers, Devendra Banhart and Hairy Fairy play with Bunny Brains at Walter’s on Washington. If you want a real blast from the past, Neil Diamond will play the Toyota Center.

On Friday, catch flowers to hide at Rudyard’s with Slovak Republic.
