Last week, Houston was saddened by the news that Mydolls guitarist and percussionist, Kathy Johnston, had passed away. Our hearts go out to her family, friends, and especially Diana Ray to whom she was married.  …

Friday, October 24
OK what the hell is with you, Friday? Talk about front-loading a week! OK fine! I’ll give you all of today and plug the rest of the week Saturday morning. For today here is what the citizens of Montrose will have to choose between.

Health / The McKenzies / B L A C K I E / The Wiggins / Female Demand / Rusted Shut / The Krinkles
@ Notsuoh
(Doors 8PM)
Ok let’s face it, the Wednesday deluge totally mucked things up. Robert from Indie Houston messaged me to tell me that The McKenzies were stranded then Omar said Health was stuck and soon the whole thing fell apart thanks the the wrath of mother nature. But you can’t keep a good show down and now it’s back and with a vengeance. Still only ten bucks but now (as if to thumb our noses at the gods) the show comes with the the sonic brutality of everyone’s favorite lovable scumbags Rusted Shut plus the melodic early punky styling of the Krinkles. Man, it’s going to be a freaking zoo on Main!

Here is the order as of 3:15Pm today.
Mckenzies
Female Demand
The Wiggins
B L A C K I E
HEALTH
Muzak John
Krinckles
Rusted Shut
plus 4 more bands (maybe)

Pierced Arrows / Rustler / Motion Turns It On
@ Rudyard’s

Fans of the eternally cool Dead Moon were pretty bummed when the band called it quits after 20 years. Of course, we didn’t believe it could be so - after all, the band had seemed to be one of rock’s purest expression of angsty driving rock and roll jitters - and clearly Fred and Toody Cole weren’t buying it either because here they are with their new band Pierced Arrows ripping it like the Dead Moons never died. To make this even more cool you have the ever clever Rustler who were wowing audiences a few months back with their instrumental whimsy only to disappear into the aether. Well, they’re back too! Motion Turns It On is a band that likely couldn’t stop if it wanted to. Like a shark, it has to move or die. And move they do with a wild crazy abandon of frenetic instrumentals that will leave you as breathless as running a marathon.

Art Opening:
Philip Durbin’s A Coarse Portal
@ ArtStorm

with DJ Ceeplus Bad Knives and PRKL8R
7-10PM
@ Artstorm inside Caroline Collective (4828 Caroline St.)

I’m not an art critic; all I know is there is free beer. I kid of course! There is more to Artstorm openings than just free beer. Artstorm openings are always great fun and the music tonight along with Philip Durbin’s “compilation of psychedelic paintings, prints and wearable art” will be a good way to kick off your evening. C’mon! How can you not go?!! OK, if for some inexplicable reason you can’t make it out for the opening, note that the exhibition is on view from October 24 through November 22, 2008. Got it? Good.

Watain / Withered / Book of Black Earth / Ritual Killer
@ Walter’s on Washington
