Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: When We Ruled H-Town Pt. 2 + Jaill (MP3s!) + The Coathangers + White Linen Night + Houston SunBurn + More

Day Two of the weekend, Saturday, August 4th, and there’s a ton going on, naturally. I’ve gotta keep it somewhat brief tonight, so let’s just get into it, eh?:

When We Ruled H-Town DVD Release, featuring 30footFALL, Monster Soup, Spunk, Dinosaur Salad, Vice Grip, Poor Dumb Bastards, & Humungus @ Fitzgerald’s
Day Two of the weekend, and Day Two of the official release of the Houston music documentary When We Ruled H-Town up at Fitzgerald’s. And yep, tonight looks as awesome as last night, with 30footFALL (a second time), Spunk, Dinosaur Salad (totally forgotten about those guys), Humungus, & more. Get on out and celebrate the Glory Days of H-town Music, y’all.

The Coathangers/Jaill/Lazer Cuntzz @ Rudyard’s
Nice, nice, nice. I’ve only heard bits & pieces of Atlanta all-girl punk band The Coathangers — who all go by the last name “Coathanger,” Ramones-style — but what I have heard has been extremely cool, in an over-the-top, middle-finger kind of way.

Jaill, on the other hand, I’ve heard a fair amount of, and they’re not bad. They’re very retro-rock-sounding, kind of like a warmer, cheerier The Dutchess & The Duke, mining those classic-rock sounds and making ’em into something new entirely. Check ’em out:

Plus, there’s unprintable local heroes {Lazer Cuntzz}, who I keep meaning to listen to — from what I’ve heard/read about ’em so far, it sounds like they’re pretty much a perfect complement to The Coathangers. The show should definitely be worth seeing/hearing.

I have to admit, I don’t really know the deal with the whole White Linen Night in the Heights thing; I think it’s gone on for a while now, but I’ve never been completely clear what it was actually for, y’know? I think it’s mostly a “get-to-know-the-Heights” kind of thing, with local food, music, fashion, & everything else, and that’s why all the showcases are going on tonight. Cool people playing, too, like The Wheel Workers, Cavernous, Poor Pilate, & The Tyburn Jig, to name a few. There’s still time to check out the festivities, so head on up to the Heights…
