Well, I'm not as excited about one particular show this weekend as some probably are -- sorry, but I really don't think Cobra Starship's pseudo-theme to Snakes On A Plane is even all that entertaining, much less a good song. Needless to say, then, I'll be skipping the Cartel/Cobra Starship show @ The Meridian. Plenty of other good stuff going on, though:
Fri., February 16 @ Notsuoh: Slo Gun aka Indian X/Karina Nistal/Mic Skills/Nosaprise
Okay, so I like this show partly because of where it is; I haven't been to Notsuoh since it closed, and it makes me happy as hell to see that glorious bastion of weirdness reopened in downtown. Beyond that, though, this sounds like a decent little showcase of local hip-hop skill -- haven't seen any of the acts, unfortunately, but I have it from good sources that Nosaprise, in particular, is damn good.
Fri., February 16 @ Rudyard's: Broken Teeth/Hell City Kings/Whorehound
Been wanting to see this one; Broken Teeth are Austinites but are reportedly very cool in a full-on rawk kind of way. Haven't seen Whorehound, but locals Hell City Kings are one of the better local garage-punk bands I've heard lately.
Fri., February 16 @ The Continental Club: The Phantoms/Chadd Thomas & His Crazy Kings/The Octanes/Ghost Stories
Not a clue about most of these folks, but I dig the heck out of Chadd Thomas. I need to hear them more, come to think of it...
Sat., February 17 @ Notsuoh: The Wiggins/Donna Huanca/Sporatics/Faux Fox/Cry Blood Apache
Another Notsuoh show, and probably the strangest thing going on in town this weekend. The Wiggins are (er, is) bizarro but very entertaining, and I've heard the same about the other folks on the bill. Should be weird & fun.
