Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

March 7th, 2006 · No Comments

Last night’s BRMC show at The Meridian was, as expected, well-attended and two hours of great music. Rumor has it that Peter Hayes from BRMC and members of The Morning After Girls played acoustic sets at The Proletariat after the show. Sorry to have missed that…
