@ Numbers
DJ’s Shu and Michael will have you dancin’ like Divine on Saturday. Awesomeness!!!!

Mako Sika/Fist of Kong
@ Notsuoh

Improv at it’s finest with the mighty Fist of Kong. The funny thing is I didn’t realize FOK was still playing at (original) drummer Vaughn Boone had long ago left. So I called the band and they were like “Oh are we playing? Where did you read that?” Eventually it turns out this was set up ages ago. So go figure. Glad I called them up.

Texas Johnny Boy/Milton Hopkins
@ McGonigel’s Mucky Duck
Some sweet blues for the first day of November with Lightnin’s cousin Milton who’s a pretty solid blues guitarist himself.

The Beach Boys
@ Moody Gardens (Galveston)

The Beach Boys get aces points for playin’ Galveston. Hooray for them. Very classy cats.

Project H (CD release)/Nothingmore/Mother’s Anthem/Dremt The End/Sun Machine
@ Fitzgerald’s

This falls under -Meh, it’s a CD release so that’s the only reason I’m mentioning it.

Sunday November 2nd

Band Camp: Off Line Promotion @ Caroline Collective 1-3PM Free
Learn how to promote yourself…Eh, I’ll let Band Camp explain it:

“The topic will be OFFLINE PROMOTION and will be taught by Kerry Melonson of Satin Hooks, B-Boy Craig and Jacob Calle. These three gentlemen will give a talk on promoting using various methods that have nothing to do with the internet. Employing flyering, postering, word-of-mouth, traditional media outlets and subversive methods bands can promote both their brand and their upcoming shows. Following the formal talk the remaining time will be spent mentoring bands one-on-one to evaluate their current promotional methods and develop both short term and long term plans for these promotions.

While Craig, Kerry and Jacob will be leading the session, we ask that other superheroes of offline and street promotion attend this session to ensure that there is a knowledge share between bands and experts as well as a healthy ratio of experts to musical artists. We also look forward to listening to these experts weigh in on best practices alongside the day’s speakers.”

Monday, November 3rd

Sista Sekunden/Battle Rifle/PLF/ Fan Death/
@ The White Swan

Swedish Hardcore ass-whoopers Sista Sekuden head off an awesome bill of hardcore which includes the recently back from Europe PLF.

Tuesday, November 4th

Terradactyls/ Wild Moccasins / Buxton
@ Notsuoh
Oh forget the election; this is going to be an amazing bill. I haven’t had a chance to check out the Terradactyls but jeez the Wild Moccasins and Buxton -two of Houston’s best bands - are reason alone to go.

Savoy Brown
@ McGonigel’s Mucky Duck

All you late 60s British blues fans may be interested in this one. Only guitarist Kim Simmonds remains of the original line-up as the rest of the band took a Slow Ride to become Foghat in 1970. Really this is just an excuse to link to a video of Slow Ride which for some inexplicable reason is a song I’ve always found hilarious and terrible yet somehow charming. I mean seriously those are some awesomely bad lyrics! I’m sure though if it was the 70’s and you were driving your airbrushed van with huge quantities of coke and weed this song would be speakign to your very soul.

Wednesday, November 5th

Colour Music / Flowers To Hide / Giant Princess / The Quietest
@ The Mink

Personally I think the press bio for Colour Music is all manufactured bollocks but who cares the music is clever, fun poppy, whimsical and that is all that matters.

The Legendary Pink Dots
@ Warehouse Live

Oh man I know where John Muzak will be tonight! And with good reason as for nigh 3 decades this Anglo-Dutch experimental band has been pumping out some wonderful experimental music that ranges from the melodic to the more dense and textured stuff.

David Dondero
@ Walter’s on Washington

Portland singer songwriter David Dondero sings songs about everything from rotisserie chicken to the Rothko Chapel with a conversational style that seems like a very nice chell way to spend your Wednesday night

Thursday, November 6th

Deerhoof / Experimental Dental School / Flying
@ Numbers

California’s super fun indie popsters Deerhoof are one of those bands whose charms are impossible to resist. Upbeat and clever without being self conscious and bassist Satomi Matasuzaki’s vocals just the sweetest.

And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead / Heist at Hand / Spain Colored Orange @ Warehouse Live

Austin Melodic rockers AYWKUBTTOOD return with local faves Heist and Hand and Spainc Coloured Orange.

Cro-Mags /Iron Age / Your Mistake / Roots of Exile / On My Side
@ Walter’s on Washington

Holy Shit? Like the old early 80’s Hare Krishna metal/hardcore band from New York? That band? they’re still around? Awesome!
Aunt Dracula / TENSE / How I Quit Crack / :kai / ros: /dj suzi puke
@ The Mink
Aunt Dracula makes you wonder “Just how weird is Philly?” but in a good way. Tense is always fun and look who is DJing? Suzi Puke! Woooo, welcome back Domokos!!!!!!
