Lots of stuff going on around town this week. Enjoy.

On Wednesday, By the End of Tonight–a band I haven’t seen in a long time but find very interesting–play at he White Swan with Bomb the Music Industry!, Pegasus XL, and Lisa’s Son.

On Thursday, Paris Falls–former member(s) of Meowcifer if memory servces–play at Boondock, which is a decent bar near Montrose on Westheimer.
