Houston Calling

The weekend in Houston rock

April 7th, 2006 · No Comments

Tonight, Arthur Yoria plays at Rudyard’s with full band, along with orange is in and Chrisopher Wilson. Should be a good show, coming on the heels of some of Yoria’s gigs in Columbia.

Also, Charlie Sexton plays Warehouse Live, which is sure to be packed.

Drop Trio and Bones play at Helio’s tonight. Rumor has is it this is one of Drop Trio’s last gigs in Houston for a while so be sure to come out and show your support. I am still fighting a ridiculous cold I have had since SXSW (I blame it on my steady diet of bad energy drinks and Lone Star) — anyway, I am avoiding bars until I am cured.

Tomorrow night at The Back Room, former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke is doing a DJ set. Should be wall-to-wall with Smiths fans (which could be cool), but hopefully there will be some breathing room. The Back Room is, uh, in the back room of Mink (on Main near the Continental Club).

Also on Saturday, Houston’s Fondue Monks play the grand opening party of a new club called Miss Behaving Club. It’s located at Hwy 6 & Clay Rd.
