Houston media is a small, and always getting smaller, community. It’s not uncommon for Free Press Houston, Houston Press and 29-95 writers to share some words and a drink when we run into …

This week we’re still nursing a mild hangover from the Indie Houston New Year’s Eve party. So you should also check Space City Rock and Skyline Network for suggestions but we’re going to keep it brief and linkless this week.

Friday, January 2

Born Liars, Golden Boys, The Backalley Sluts
@ The Mink

Kick off this first weekend of 2009 with Houston’s rowdiest garage rockers, some dudes from Austin that everyone raves about, and some local glammy sluts.

The Sour Notes, Spain Colored Orange, listenlisten
@ Rudyard’s

If you want things a bit more nuanced then this show (an album release for Austin’s the Sour Notes) should be more your ticket with SCO and the understated cabin rock of listenlisten.

Also on Friday:
- John Evans (CD release), Rich O’Toole @ McGonigel’s Mucky Duck
- Go Go Garcia, Prepmode @ Boondocks

Saturday, January 3rd

Grand 1894 Opera House Birthday & Reopening, featuring Jerry Jeff Walker
@ Grand 1894 Opera House (Galveston)

Hooray Galveston Opera House is Reopening!!!! How can that not brighten your new year?

Caddywhompus, Searching For Signal, White Horse Tabernacle, Smiley with a Knife
@ Notsuoh

Caddywhompus has members of Rff Tiffs - That’s all I need for a recommendation.

Dirty Honey, featuring Brett Koshkin & Flash Gordon Parks
@ Boondocks

DJ’s at Boonnedocks means get yr heinie in gear.

Sunday, January 4th

Potluck Benefit for Airon Paul Dugas,
featuring Lenny Briscoe, Ellis and Hart, Rhett Burch, & Sew What
@ Stitched Tire House (1506 Caywood Ln.; 7PM, $5-$10 donation)

Second benefit for the beloved folkster who is recovering from a scooter vs. car collision, medical costs, and lost work. We’re all hoping that 2009 is kinder to Dugas. Help make it so by coming out.

Band Camp: Touring
@ Caroline Collective (4820 Caroline, 1-3PM)
Check out the link for deets. I think this is Band Camp III and they’ll have Gretchen Schmaltz of The Western Civ. share her experience with bands. Also someone from The Messina Group and some dude with a credit card machine you can use on the road. Our highly trained staff of researchers report the machine looks a lot like MST3K’s Tom Servo.

Monday, January 5th

Agartha, Darwin’s Finches
@ Boondocks
Galveston’s Darwin’s Finches ripped it up at the Indie Houston NYE party. Come out and see why.

Folsom, CDC, Call To Preserve, War Pigs, Wrong Again
@ The White Swan

Haven’t had a chance to check out these bands but all I can say is if your band is named after Sabbath’s War Pigs and you don’t kick-ass, may God have mercy on your soul!

Wednesday, January 7th

Sideshow Tramps, The Magpies
@ The Continental Club

From recently discovered tablets that present additional details on the Creation story in Genesis. “On the 8th day God found Adam and Eve to be horribly boring and yeah to liven things up God did create Sideshow Tramps to spice things up.” Though not fully translated at press time the tablets seem to suggest the true reason for Adam and Eve’s banishment from the Garden had to something do with the subsequent SST lead party.

Thursday, January 8th

The Kickback, Free Radicals
@ Notsuoh

Funky Funky Free Radicals! Hooray!
