Put up two new reviews this afternoon, so they'd be up & readable & all in time for the especially neat bands in question to hit H-town this week (more later, hopefully)...
First, tonight we've got Georgia boys Moros Eros playing tonight (Tues., 11/20, if you're keeping track) up in Spring at the ever-lovely(?) Javajazz Coffee House. The band rides this weird line between Killers-esque New Wavery and all that old-school emo/screamo stuff (think Braid, in particular), and even if the lyrics are a bit doofy, eh, the delivery more than makes up for it. I honestly wanted to not like this disc, believe it or not, just 'cause I was feeling grouchy when I put it on, but dammit, I couldn't. Anyway, the band's playing with two other bands I don't know, The Stiletto Formal & The Ax That Chopped The Cherry Tree, which has to be one of the dumbest band names I've ever heard of. Don't hold that against Moros Eros, though. Check out the review here, then head on up to Spring, eh?
Next, on Friday, 11/23 you can drag your gorged self on up to Fitzgerald's (the downstairs area, I believe) to check out local boys Stadium (see the to the right), who are ex-Little Compass, ex-The Record Time, ex-The Belle Curve, ex-The Maria Project, ex-etc., etc., and are, as evidenced by their new EP Change of plans, we're coming home, utterly awesome. Sure, they're not breaking a whole lot of new ground here, mining the whole Jimmy Eat World/The New Amsterdams vein of sweet-voiced emo-pop that I, at least, happen to like so damn much. The band does a damn fine job, though, bringing to mind the best moment of bands like Mae, The Get Up Kids, & Armor For Sleep but also throwing in elements of early-'90s post-hc. You can read the review here, then mark your calendars. Oh, and they're playing with The Mechanical Boy (who we're intrigued by), Ethan Durelle (who we like), and Earnie Banks (who we think sound promising as all get-out).
More later in the week, barring attacks by flesh-eating zombie turduckens...
