Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

July 11th, 2006 · No Comments

Tonight (Tuesday, 7.11.06), The Shondes — a “queer and transgender rock quartet playing driving rock music
with classical/feminist punk influences, layered harmonies, and radical political content” — plays with my favorite local punk band Something Fierce and Sweet Teeth at Heilos (on Westheimer near Numbers).

For the less adventurous, Slaid Cleaves plays at the Mucky Duck tonight.

Thursday night is Another Werewolf Western Showcase No. 2 at The Meridian, which features Unknown Hinson, Hotrod Hillbillies, The Easy Kings, & Houston punk legends, The Hates.

Also on Thursday, The Court and Spark play with Brothers and Sisters at Walter’s. And, Elemental Harmonics and A>S>H>S play The Meridian. My review of A>S>H>S’ album recently ran on AllAboutJazz.com.

On Friday night, this is the last chance to catch The Black Math Experiment before they leave for their tour. They won’t be back in Houston until October. The band plays at The Proletariat with The Billy Nayer Show and Judas Bear. Come out and show your support.

Also on Friday night, Sitka Sound (who will play at the Houston Calling happy hour on Monday, July 24th at The Proletariat) plays at Rudyard’s with .belville and Shinobu. This should be a good one as well.

On Saturday, Pale plays at The Mink with Alpha Rev and the always great Johnny Goudie. The Mink is a few doors down from The Continental Club. Also on Saturday is the next installment of JamHouston.com‘s Extemp-O-Rama, which features Drop Trio, Friendship Bracelet, Muzak John, and BlaBat & Jarle Lillemoen. Catch the fun at Super Happy Fun Land.
