H-Town Venue News: Satellite Bar Is A Go, The Raven Tower Opens Soon, & Fitzgerald’s As Neighborhood Bar

First off: yeah, I know it’s been a while. This whole past year feels like a giant wave that washed over yours truly and never let up, and because of that, SCR has taken a definite back seat to a whole lot of other things. The plan, though, is to turn that around and get shit moving once again. Part of the reason why I’m dying to get things back to an even keel, I should note, is because there’s so much damn cool stuff going on right now in Houston’s scene…

Tonight: B L A C K I E, Cities Aviv, & Fat Tony at Notsuoh (for Free!)

Hey, all — short notice show time… This one kinda crept up on me, so I only found out about it today, but I wanted to make a mention of it, at least, since it’s damn cool. Bassman Pep of AR*V is putting this on over at the ever-entertaining bastion of Downtown strangeness, Notsuoh

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Riot Grrrl Dance Party + The Wrong Ones + Allen Stone + Indie! Or Die! + Roxy Roca + Grady Gaines + More

Hey, all — I know it’s been somewhat quiet over here in recent days; sorry about that, but yours truly’s been pretty well snowed-under by multiple things, and blog postings tend to fall by the wayside. sigh

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Clinic + No Joy + Adelaine + Holy Fiction + Square and Compass + Kristine Mills + Houston Celtic Festival + More

On into Saturday, April 27th, today, and again, there’s a crapload of good stuff happening. Here’s what looks/sounds good to me…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Bang Bangz + The Fox Derby + A Sundae Drive + Jimmie Dale Gilmore + Humungus + More

sigh. Been a crazy day, y’all — I’m bummed that I completely missed out on the first day of this year’s Haute Wheels Houston food truck festival, especially since they had very cool people like {The Wheel Workers}, {Craig Kinsey}, & {Southern Backtones} playing, dammit…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: the last place you look + Venomous Maximus + Thre3style Massive + The Tontons + More

Wow. Tonight’s the first night of the weekend, Friday, December 21st, and it’s not only the first day of Christmas/holiday vacation for some of us (okay, fine; mine was yesterday) but also — if you listen to people who think science is all made-up nonsense but paranoid ideas about aliens and magnetic pole reversal…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Creeperfest + Future Islands + Island Reunion + Other Lives + Spelling Bee (x2) + More

Yep, it’s Saturday, November 10th, now, and we’re back with the list of what all sounds cool to hear/see today & tonight. Here we go…

Yr. (Brief) Weekend, Pt. 1: Something Fierce + Glass the Sky + The Lotus Effect + Sunrise & Ammunition + More

Hey, all — sorry for the quietness all week this week. I foolishly believed the little touch of cold I felt coming on last Sunday was just a minor thing, but yeah, I turned out to be way, way wrong. I’ve been knocked-out flat all freaking week, unfortunately…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: !Yes Indeed! Fest + American Sharks + Illegal Wiretaps + Wine Fest + Touche Amore + More

And now, on to today — Saturday, September 29th — and holy crap, there’s a lot going on. Seriously, there’s so much happening this afternoon/evening that I’m pretty sure I’m actually missing a bunch of it. Damn…

!Yes Indeed! Fest Tiger Beat Rundown: Empty Shells

And on we go… The big day is fast approaching — Saturday, September 29th is the date of the bound-to-be-cool !Yes Indeed! Music Fest, so we’re back again with third installment of this little SCR Tiger Beat writeup thing…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Austin Rhoads Benefit + Muhammad Ali + The Wiggins (Video!) + Hearts of Animals + More

I’ve been a bit on the distracted side this week, trying to catch up from my time away — for some reason, I’d assumed I’d have lots of time on my hands in the evenings while up in Cambridge, and that didn’t happen, which was very cool, but means I didn’t get stuff done…

!Yes Indeed! Fest Tiger Beat Rundown: The Ex-Optimists

Here we are again, with the second installment of our SCR Tiger Beat Q&A with bands and musicians playing at this Saturday‘s much-heralded (and rightly so) !Yes Indeed! Music Fest up in downtown…

!Yes Indeed! Fest Tiger Beat Rundown: Bantam Foxes

As we mentioned a short while back, this coming Saturday, September 29th, marks the debut of !Yes Indeed! Music Fest. It’s up in Downtown…

!Yes Indeed! Music Fest, Coming This Month

Wanted to get a mention in relatively early on this one (although not earlier than the {Houston Press} it would seem), because it sounds like it’s going to be damn good…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: New York City Queens (Rev’d!) + Knights of the Fire Kingdom + Fiskadoro + Life as Lions + More

Whoo, yeah. It’s Friday, August 17th, and tonight’s looking like a good one. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Octopus Project + Benefit for Tim Young + Co-Pilot + Clory Martin + The Suffers + More

It’s gonna be a crazy one, y’all; this weekend is insanely busy, with tons of stuff going on each & every night, starting with tonight, 11/11/11. I swear, it’s just been like that lately — the weekends when not much good is happening have been few & far between…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Lords of the Universe + Illegal Wiretaps + Bang Bangz + Featherface + Chimaira + More

Coming into Saturday, October 29th, and it’s even more packed-tightly than Friday evening was. Plenty, plenty, plenty going on, not even counting all the haunted houses & parties & whatever…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Dead Horse Reunion + FPH Oktoberfest + BMC Block Party + SkateStock + Featherface + More

Wow. It’s another insanely-packed Saturday (October 22nd, specifically), with so much going on there’s no way I’ll be able to talk about all of it. Man….

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Reptar (Interviewed!) + Jet Lounge Anniversary + White Crime + Mikey & The Drags + More

Hey, all — running late, unfortunately, after spending the whole day cutting and measuring and cutting crown moulding for the hallways…gah. There’s quite a bit going on tonight (Sat., September 17th), though, so I didn’t want to miss out on it completely…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Balaclavas + Venomous Maximus + The Hunger + Faceplant + More

Sunday, September 4th, heading on into Labor Day, and there’re a few cool-ass shows still going on, despite everybody heading out of town for the three-day weekend & all that…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: #HelpAmy + Active Child (Rev’d!) + The Dodos + Andre Williams + /Crustaceans\ + More

As hinted at yesterday, there’s a veritable crapload of stuff going on tonight, Saturday, September 3rd. There’s so much I’m honestly having a hard time even talking about all of it…

Late-Notice Muhammad Ali Tour Kickoff Show, Tonight

Dangit, I knew I was gonna miss one… Somehow I totally overlooked tonight’s show up at Notsuoh — badass, wide-grinning indie-punk gang {Muhammad Ali} are headlining…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Prince Paul + Mikey & The Drags + Rock Portraits Afterparty + Muhammad Ali + Peloton + More

Holy crap, there’s a lot going on today. It’s a Saturday (August 20th, specifically), which generally tends to be busy to begin with, but damn. I’m afraid I’m not going to be able to talk about all of it…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Paris Falls + Grand Child + Anarchitex + Prison Soup + Kris Becker (Reviewed!) + Faster Pussycat + More

As we head into the holiday madness this weekend — believe it or not, I didn’t realize ’til this AM that I actually got Monday off from the Day Job — I wanted to mention some of the cooler of the many, many cool things going on…

Yr. (Late) Weekend, Pt. 2: Overflow Fest + Giant Battle Monster + The Tyburn Jig + Jealous Creatures + Gladys Knight + More

The site’s getting short shrift again tonight, I’m afraid; it’s been a crazy couple of days, trying to get a ton of stuff done while I’ve been technically on vacation, and right now I’m in the horrific throes of re-doing the back room, which basically means moving everything out of it…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Indian Jewelry + Roky Moon & BOLT Do-Over + Girls Rock Camp + Temporary Insanity II + Jesse Dayton + More

Day 2 of a busy-as-hell weekend… Today (Saturday, December 18th) is a pretty massive one, particularly on the local front — and believe me when I say that that’s nothing to sneeze at. Anybody who thinks nothing worth listening to…

This Weekend: Temporary Insanity Roars into Houston

Damn, damn, damn — I’d fully meant to post about this before now, but things got away from me, as they tend to do…sorry ’bout that, y’all. At any rate, following in this coming weekend’s “holy shit, how is all of this going on?” theme…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Pik-N-Pak Reunion Night #2 + Fiskadoro + Metal Summit 3 + The Kimonos + Winter Wallace + More

Good night coming up tonight, mostly due to the Pik-N-Pak Reunion deal, but also because of some other shows going on ’round the same time. Get on out the house; here’s where I’d recommend…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Omotai (CD release/kickoff) + The Manichean + Weird Party + Continental Club 10th + Colin Hay + More

Trying to get a little bit of a jump on the rest of this weekend, so here’s what looks/sounds good to me tonight, Saturday, July 10th — and yep, as you can see, there’s even more good shit going on than there was on Friday. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Suspects + Somosuno + Blackmarket Syndicate + Warsaw Opening + Dead Frail Honesty + More

There’s quite a bit of cool stuff going on this weekend, but I’ve got to break things up & just hit tonight’s highlights right now, I’m afraid… Here’s what looks good to me for tonight, Friday, June 25th: {The Suspects}! Ah, I love those guys, truly I do…

Notsuoh

314 Main Street was built in the 1880’s and was owned by Clark and Dean’s credit department stores until it was abandoned in 1950, leaving the storefront unoccupied…

The Little Show That Could: Last Night @ Notsuoh

UPDATE! Argh, I screwed up — ignore the art show stuff at the bottom & check the next post, instead… Yesterday evening I dragged homeboy Jowell on up to Notsuoh for the rescheduled, shifted-around, and somewhat downsized (Ex-)Keene St. Warehouse Party. I had some serious misgivings about the whole thing, I have to admit — […]
