Houston Calling

The holiday week in Houston rock

July 3rd, 2006 · No Comments

The Essence Music Festival continues tonight (Monday, 7.3.06), and features Maze, Frankie Beverly, Toni Braxton, Cedric the Entertainer, Charlie Wilson, & Keyshia Cole at Reliant Stadium.

Also tonight, Arthur Yoria plays a solo acoustic gig at Onion Creek. 8pm show. You should come out — not like you’re working tomorrow. It’s a holiday.

On Thursday, Bring Back The Guns plays with Danielson and Jana Hunter at Walter’s on Washington.

On Friday night, one of my local favorites The Contingency open for The Slow Signal Fade at Rudyard’s. This will be a great show. Also on Friday, my favorite local metal band Rhenium plays with Placid Blue, The Wheel Works, Velvet Brick, and Lazar Wolf at Fitzgerald’s.

Saturday marks the return of 61 Cygni, who have been on hiatus for a while. The group plays Rudyard’s.

On Sunday, it’s a toss-up. You can head to The Woodlands early to catch David Garza open for Damien Rice and Fiona Apple, or go downtown to the Verizon to see Poison and Cinderella. Yes, that Poison and Cinderella. Get your acid-washed jeans and cigarette lighters ready…
