Another busy night, and I'm late as always; sorry, the determined few who read this blog regularly. Tonight, Saturday, January 9th, is looking pretty good, though -- here's what I'm liking:
The Tontons/Roky Moon & Bolt/Ghost Mountain @ Walter's
The show of the evening, in my book -- a rare appearance by fiery psych-soul act The Tontons, a sighting of '70s revivalist rockers Roky Moon & Bolt, and what's bound to be an entertaining set of Ghost Mountain's quirky, nerdy electro-hop.
Free Press Houston Worst of Houston Release Party, featuring Dissent, The Handshake, & Guerilla Foco Clan @ Super Happy Fun Land
Dunno much about the bands playing, but hey, I'm all about the "Worst of Houston" deal the Free Press does each year. If you can't poke a finger at yourself, who can you do it to?
Houston Punk Revue: Helping Tim O Fight Cancer!, featuring mem. of The Texas Biscuit Bombs, Mydolls, Party Owls, Homopolice, Born Liars, Really Red, London Girl, Zipperneck, Anarchitex, & more @ The Mink (front bar; 8-10PM)
This one's a nice benefit-type deal, another one put on by David from Hot Punk City, and it promises to be unique -- the idea is to have the members of the Texas Biscuit Bombs back up the folks listed above for two hours' or so worth of old-school punk rawk mayhem. All to help out Tim O'Brien, longtime scenester, writer, and activist, who's fighting cancer. Go help, and enjoy the show in the process.
Elmwood/Ragged Hearts/Duncan, Johnson, and the Gentlemen @ The Mink (8:30PM)
Yep, this one's a reschedule, from the earlier Elmwood show that got cancelled a while back. Glad to see it's back, not so much for Elmwood but for local boys Ragged Hearts, whose Social Distortion-inspired roots-rock I truly dig...
We're Into Survival/Jason and the Punknecks @ Trash Bar
Kinda an oddball show, but I like what I've heard so far of Tennesseans We're Into Survival (and I really like their name), and I'm hoping they'll get a decent reception tonight. Only problem? I've got no idea where the Trash Bar is. Anybody?
Willie Nelson @ Arena Theater
Ah, Willie Nelson -- the last time I saw him, he seemed to be playing completely different songs from the rest of his band, and yet, it was still very entertaining.
Commie Hilfiger/Skeleton Dick/Dickey Hands/A Dream Asleep @ Warehouse Live
Monster Music "Rock Your Face Off" Showcase, featuring Necrofaith, Low Man's Joe, Chrome 44, Via Linda, Skeptikal, Ethreal, Metalloyd, Sol 34, & Black Queen Speaks @ Warehouse Live
Clandestine @ McGonigel's Mucky Duck
Odd Toddler/Luchsinger Bros./The Marble Brothers/Daniel Anderson @ Bohemeo's
Snit's Dog and Pony Show @ Cypress Saloon (Cypress)
