Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

February 8th, 2006 · No Comments

It’s a week of new stuff.

On Thursday (2.9.06) skyblue72 will host a CD release show at Twelve Spot. Friday night (2.10.06), The Riff Tiffs play their CD release show at Super Happy Fun Land with The Dimes, Another Run, King Louie & the Swinging Monkeys, and Bojones. On Saturday (2.11.06), Three Fantastic plays their CD release show with The Slurpees at Rudyard’s.

Tody Castillo plays Thursday night at The Harp (on Richmond near Shepherd). Red Leaves and .belville play Rudyard’s on Friday night. The legendary Grandmaster Flash plays on Saturday at the Museum of Fine Arts.

About This Product, a local band that will open for Mogwai in March and that I hardly ever see playing live around town, plays Super Happy Fun Land on Sunday night with Death Bomb Arc, Wince, Pedestrian Deposit, Yatagarasu, and Werewolf Jerusalem. Should be an interesting show–I have heard good things about About This Product’s music.
