Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Jealous Creatures + A Sundae Drive + 1836 Fest + Featherface + Glass the Sky + A Night with FYHA + More

1623478_626954180692322_219356260_nDangit; late again, I’m afraid… It’s now Saturday, March 8th, and despite my slowness in putting this up, there’s still plenty going on this evening. Here goes:

Blast DAD/Jealous Creatures/A Sundae Drive @ Rudyard’s
I found out about this one a bit last-minute (haven’t been able to check the email much this week), but it jumped up to the top of the list by virtue of having two of my absolute-favorite bands playing on the same dang night. Up at Rudyard’s tonight, there’s cool, quirky, fuzzy-edged shoegaze crew A Sundae Drive, who are truly awesome, and then there’s murky, just-distorted-enough rockers Jealous Creatures, both of whom are very much worth seeing.

1836 Fest: A Celebration of Texas, featuring Sons of Fathers, Band of Heathens, Shotgun Friday, J. Charles & the Trainrobbers, The Roomsounds, Sour Bridges, Free Radicals 2nd Line, & The Suffers @ Cottonwood (3422 N. Shepherd; 1-10PM)
I wish I’d posted earlier about this one, frankly, because it’s a cool idea; 1836 Fest a new must fest held in honor of Texas’ independence, and the idea is to bring together local music, local craft brewing, and local food trucks, all three of which things I am totally for supporting. Unfortunately, a lot of the bands I like the best have already played today, like excellent rocksteady outfit The Suffers, but I’ve heard very, very good things about headliners Sons of Fathers and Band of Heathens, so if you can get on up to Cottonwood, definitely do it…

Featherface/LYS/Growl/Glass the Sky @ Mango’s
Over at Mango’s tonight, ever-badass indie-pop heroes Featherface hit the stage in the headlining spot — always a good thing. They’re playing with French popsters LYS and Austin band Growl, but the openers are also pretty damn great; I haven’t seen Glass the Sky on the bill too often lately, and that’s a shame, because they’re a genuinely smart, subtle pop band, the kind you don’t find very frequently these days.

And last but not least, this one’s a neat-sounding little party for the Fuck You Houston’s Awesome folks, who’ll be releasing a few new designs tonight. Which is awesome, because FYHA needs to be known far and wide, representing H-town in the best way possible. And yes, it kills me that I can’t even buy a damn FYHA shirt; I can’t wear it to work or at home around the midgets. sigh.
