Houston Calling

The weekend in Houston rock

August 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment

There’s a lot of good shows around town this weekend. Tonight (Thursday, 8.7.08) is American Sharks’ CD release show at Rudyard’s, with The Points and The Monocles. Also tonight is Balaclavas album release show at Walter’s, with Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and The Wiggins.

Orange Is In plays at The Continental Club tonight (Thursday) as well.

Numbers hosts another Free Press Houston Recession Thursdays, which this week Guitars, Alarma!, The Annoysters, & Lazy Horse. $5 cover. Doors at 8pm.

On Friday (8.8.06), you may be home watching Olympics coverage but I’ll be at Cactus to catch Hayes Carll’s in-store performance around 5pm. if you haven’t yet picked up his Lost Highway album, Trouble In Mind, you’re missing out. Then later–at 8pm or so–Carll plays out at The Showgrounds at Sam Houston Race Park (near Hwy 249 and Beltway 8).

Or, if you want to go out in-town, check out Tody Castillo (who’ll undoubtedly be playing songs from his forthcoming album) and buzz-band The Wild Moccasins at Rudyard’s for only $3.

Also on Friday, Paris Falls plays an in-store at Sig’s Lagoon. Sig’s is located in between The Continental Club and The Mink on Main St. near W. Alabama. And, funk-rockers Electric Attitude play at Last Concert Cafe.

Other shows this weekend include:

Friday, 8.8.08
Spiral Out (Tool tribute)/Sounds Under Radio/Hypernova/Evedies @ Fitzdown
