Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

August 8th, 2006 · No Comments

Tonight (Tuesday, 8.8.06) is the next installment in the Bodog Battle of the Bands at The Meridian. This show features The N Crowd, The Portrait of Dorian Grey, Rose To My Dear, Sevenfold, Brown vs. Board, Another Run, Acanthus, Frizz Bee, & NecroFaith.

Also tonight, The Dimes play with The Prids at Super Happy Fun Land. The Dimes will have limited copies of their new EP available at tonight’s show.

On Wednesday, Bloc Party plays with J versus K at Warehouse Live.

Thursday night, Bring Back The Guns & By The End Of Tonight play at Walter’s. This will be packed, so dress lightly and come early.

On Friday, Sitka Sound opens for The Clientele and Great Lakes at Walter’s on Washington. This should be a good — and probably packed — show. Tickets are $10 at door.

Also on Friday, Luxurata plays with Low Budget Thriller at Rudyard’s and Skyblue72 plays with Osirus, Mister, and Six Gun Solution at Jake’s Bar. Oh, and apparently The Crystal Method is at M Bar.

Saturday night is JamHouston.com‘s Extemp-O-Rama, which features Vibe Committee, Tambersauro, Special Anthony, and Still Frames at Super Happy Fun Land.

Also on Saturday, Bruce Robison — whose recent album Elevent Stories is one of the best things I have heard this year — plays at the Mucky Duck.

The Meridian hosts Jetspeed’s Monster Music Showcase on Saturday night, which features Early Pearl, Spiracell, Chrome 44, & Us and Them.

On Sunday, Corinne Bailey Rae, Kevin Devine, and Gran Bel Fisher perform at Warehouse Live. Also, Horns of Happiness and Woozyhelmet play The Proletariat on Sunday.

See you out and about.
