Houston Calling

The weekend in Houston rock

April 26th, 2007 · No Comments

The legendary Fishbone plays tonight at Fitz’s with The Expendables, Supervillains, and Ryan Scroggins & The Trenchtown Texans. This is sure to be packed so make plans to get there early or get your tickets here. Fishbone’s new album, Still Stuck in Your Throat is available now.

Another packed concert tonight will be Clap Your Hands Say Yeah with Elvis Perkins in Dearland at Warehouse Live. My pick, however, is to catch Ragged Hearts at the Jet Lounge, which is next to the Engine Room. You can read my interview with CYHSY in the April issue of Envy.

Friday night is Deep Ella’s CD release show at Warehouse Live. Million Year Dance, The Wartime Social, and Five Dollar Friend are also on the bill.
