Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

July 18th, 2006 · No Comments

Tonight (Tuesday, 7.18.06), the legendary The English Beat play at The Meridian. At Walter’s, Dillinger Escape Plan play with Disrhythmia and Golden Axe.

Warehouse Live hosts Funk-N-Rock, featuring IV Thieves, Deafening, Little Brother Project, and Casino.

On Wednesday, Dashboard Confessional play the Verizon with /Say Anything and Ben Lee.

On Thursday, The Format plays with Rainer Maria and Anathallo at Numbers. I was recently turned on to The Format, and can honestly say their music is full of poppy goodness. You should check them out.

Friday, go check out Lanky at Rudyards with Alpha Rev and The Warning.

Saturday is Fitzgerald’s 29th Birthday Party, featuring 30footFALL, O’Doyle Rules, Al Shire, and Tripp Von Slipp.
