Happy 2006!

Just a few of the things to look for in early 2006:

Jettspeed Management Record Label Showcase 3 @ The Meridian, 1.13.06 (featuring Prognosis, Spiracell, Faktion, Dine Alone, and Linus)
North Mississippi All-Stars @ The Meridian, 1.19.06
The Blasters / The Flaming Hellcats / Snit’s Dog and Pony Show / The Hates (rockabilly set) @ The Meridian, 1.20.06
Of Montreal @ Number’s, 1.21.06
Explosions in the Sky @ Engine Room, 1.28.06
Spoon @ Number’s, 2.4.06
Galactic @ The Meridian, 2.24.06
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club @ The Meridian, 3.6.06
Motion City Soundtrack / OK Go @ The Meridian, 3.9.06
Smoking Popes (reunion show) @ Walter’s on Washington, 2.26.06
Mogwai @ Number’s, 3.14.06

The week of SXSW in Austin should prove to be a great week of music for Houston as well. I’ll keep an eye on it. I doubt we’ll get as lucky as seeing The Futureheads and Shout Out Louds together this year, but Mogwai is coming so I assume there will be other great bands coming to town that week.

Here’s what’s happening in local music this week:

Friday night is Leaf’s CD release show at Engine Room with The Mechanical Boy, Three Fantastic, and Dremt The End. Also, Satin Hooks plays with .belville and Georgia’s Horse at The Dark Room. Moses Guest plays The Continental Club, which should be great as well. Sitka Sound plays with Horehound and Sons of Evel at Rudyard’s.

On Saturday night, three great bands play at Super Happy Fun Land — The Dimes, The Box Social, and Something Fierce. Enjoy.

    Just wanted to thank you for your donewaiting website. I appreciate it as a great resource for our show and I am sure it’s a lot of work. Doesn’t seem like there are many comments but I bet there are a ton of readers like me that visit daily.
