Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

May 10th, 2006 · No Comments

This Thursday, the Southern Backtones and John Evans Band play at Jet Lounge (1515 Pease St., next to Engine Room). $5 Cover. This is the last chance to catch these bands before they head off for tours, so be sure to come out and see them play. Both of their 2006 CDs are great — you’re missing out if you haven’t yet bought them.

Also on Thursday, Lanky plays at Mojo Risin Coffee House on Shepherd (next to Spaghetti Western/near Cadillac Bar).

On Friday, there’s some great rockabilly at Walter’s — my old favorites The Flametrick Subs play with Houston legends Luxurious Panthers. This will be a great show.

Also, Fondue Monks play at Engine Room. Imogen Heap from Frou Frou plays Warehouse Live.

On Saturday, Bright Men of Learning have their CD release show at The Proletariat with churchbus, Hotel Brotherhood, DJ Under Warranty, and DJ Paramour. You can stream the new album here.

The Damnwells open for The Fray at The Meridian (this is sold out). You can read my interview with lead Damnwell Alex Dezen in the May issue of Envy magazine. Pick one up around town.
