This Week’s Spotlight is on…
Freaking 6 years of Danspac

Dansparc’s 6 anniversary party
@ Numbers (9:30 - 2 am: $4 cover until 11, $6 after 11)
Wooo, Danspac may have been down after Ike but it’s not out. It was charming to see DJ Shu Lateef not give up on the original date of this party back on the Saturday Ike hit. Bulletins proclaiming that Danspac was still happening (even as late as Friday) were horribly endearing for their tenacity. Thankfully Shu and Michael Harwell are back and with a vengence and are celebrating 6 years of making your ass shake with a tribute to ELO!

ELO? Like Xanadu ELO?

Yes!

Awwwwwwsomeness!

So get there early as they’ll be giving away freaking FREE(!!!) ELO T-shirts and mix CDs along with two lifetime passes to Dansparc.

ALSO THIS WEEK

Friday, October 3

KUHF Classic Film Concerts presents
Nosferatu (1922)
Music by The Golden Arm Trio
@ Discovery Green (7:30PM)

Wow, this is gonna freaking rule! First off the 86 year-old-film is still awesome, then the fact that there’ll be a live score by Golden Arm Trio? That’s is freaking cool! Stoked my friends is what I am! PS. I predict my 6 year old son will have nightmares like I did when I first saw this film.

Laurie Anderson
Homeland

@ Wortham Center’s Cullen Theater (8PM)
(Whoops this is next Friday Oct 10th - MY bad)
SPA brings Anderson’s newest work Homeland to Houston which they describe as a “portrait of contemporary American culture [that] explores the current climate of fear and the obsessions with information and security.” Anyone got $62 bucks they want to toss me for a front row seat? OK how about $22 for the balcony? Meh, I thought not. Anyhow, here is excerpt from a performance in São Paulo:

Friday October 3
Exter
minating Angels (Rotten Piece and Scott Ayers) / Anarchitex / Room 101
@ Rudyard’s

Quite the evening of noise and old school punk. Exterminating Angels is Shawn and Carol Kelly (whose home sadly was not spared during Ike) also known as Rotten Piece who are one of the most unpredictable experimental bands. Their music can range from the pure abstract to the more in your face rawk and while it’s always weird and clever it’s never self-conscious or a case of the “trying too hard.” The other third of EA is long time Houston music scientist Scott Ayers who was likely most well known for his work with the Pain Teens though his work with the Walking Timebombs and Truth Decay were also noteworthy. The combination of Ayers with the Kellys will surely open a very nasty dimension. The Anarchitex feature Ayers and other Houston punk/experimental/underground luminaries including Really Red’s Bob Weber as well as Happy Fingers Institute’s John Reen Davis and Tory Mercer. Nice to see that the old school Houston punks are hard to kill as we thought.

Quintron and Miss Pussycat / Golden Triangle
@ Walter’s on Washington

Sure Quintron is cool and always fun live with his crazy organ and retro electronics thing but man, I gotta say I’m always stoked about Miss Pussycat. I mean c’mon she’s got puppets! I freaking love puppets!

Generator House Party at the Something Fierce House with
The Young, Something Fierce, Teenage Kicks
(7-10pm at 1813 Marshall)

This just in from Hands up Houston. Gte yr pop punk kicks with three great bands all powered by the gas fumes of a generator! Hopefully this will please the gods of power and the will bestow the gift of electricity to Something Fierce.

Ryan Bingham & the Dead Horses/The Rustlanders
@ Warehouse Live (Studio)

Bingham is a pleasant enough Texas singer songwriter but his Spanish pronunciation could use some work.

The Kooks
@ Cactus (5:30PM)
UK pop dullards who are playing at the Meridian that evening. It’s criminally boring and pedestrian songwriting and execution but what the hell - Free beer from St. Arnolds makes it all better.

DIRB!, featuring Gracie Chavez, El Jeffe, G. Wizz, & Antonio
@ Boondocks

DJ’s Boondocks you know the routine - now dance!
The Vinyl Ranch
on The Revelry Report 6-7pm (91.7fm)
The ongoing series of Friday evening live broadcasts.

Henry Rollins (spoken-word)
@ Stafford Centre (Stafford)

Rollins is most well known for his years of playign the title role in Andrew LLoyd Weber’s Phanthom of The Opera and his star take in Rummy Tum Tum Tum. For years, through his poems, he has been a soft spoken voice of civility and American values.

Saturday, October 4

Deep Ella, Paris Green, Straightfork & Morgue City (12PM - 3PM) Ra Ra Riot (4PM) The McKenzies and Dune Tx (7:30PM - 10PM)
@ Cactus
Wow when I saw the line-up I first thought that Cactus had sent me their full month line-up of live shows because there were so many bands but nope this is all Saturday. Shop, Rock, and Free Beer from Saint Arnolds it’s like Moses just led us to the promised land. Oh and one word folks - Mckenzies! Shall We Booty Dance? Yes!

2nd Annual Rock for Houston’s Youth Concert, featuring
D.R.U.M., Studemont Project, Rowe, The Crisis, Electric Attitude, Advent Scars, Westborn, City of Sounds, Fulton Read, Sevi, & The Blue Poptarts
@ Warehouse Live ($11)
A nice show that will benefit child-advocate organization Children at Risk (http://www.childrenatrisk.org/).

Dayglo Abortions / The Accused / Filth Hounds / El Desmadre
@ Walter’s on Washington (8PM; $12)

Oh Canada, to me you are so … apparently easy to fuck with. At least that’s the way it seems for Victoria’s Dayglo Abortions who’ve suffered (or likely giggled trhough) investigations and criminal prosecutions for offensive content. Imagine the Poor Dumb Bastards except with a hankering for backbacon. Local hardcore awesomeness (who by the way are about to release a 7″) El Desmadre open .

Ra Ra Riot / Walter Meego / The Morning Benders/Spain Colored Orange
@ Rudyard’s

Local Faves SCO open up a night of indie pop.

Boogie Bandits, featuring Dayta, Prince Klassen, & Orion
@ Boondocks
More DJs at Boondocks

Saturday Secret Show

@ The Shady Tavern

Keep it like a secret.

LoneStar PornStar (CD release) / Chrome 44 / Energy Williams / Almost Sober
@ Fitzgerald’s

CD release. It gets mentioned. Nothing more to see here. Move along now.


Sunday, October 5

News on the March - EP release / The Wild Moccasins / Elaine Greer / Earnie Banks
@ The Mink
(Cancelled)
Well, I was pretty psyched about this show but it magically dropped off all but one of the bands’ myspaces and NOTM mentioned in a blog that the CD wasn’t going to be back from the plant by the release date. So was it happening was it not? Thankfully, Earnie Banks was good enough to not simply delete the show from the calendar but noted the show as having been cancelled. Thanks guys, I was pretty befuddled there. Anyhow, NOTM e-mailed me back to tell me they’d had to reschedule the release party due to post IKE issues. Hope it’s the same line-up as these are all great bands that deserve your attention.

Tuesday, October 7

listenlisten
on the KTRU Local Show - 91.7fm
(8PM)
The local show brings us the folksy melancholy quartet.

Kataklysm / Dying Fetus / Eluvitie / Keep Of Kalessin / Pinhed / Cerebral Rot / Cain Was Able / Predominant Mortification / Nhuvasarim @ The Meridian
Metal show …wait there’s a metal band with a Hurdy Gurdy? WTF? OK I guess that’s cool…I’ll let that go but there is one thing I can’t wrap my head around.. How evil and satanic can this metal tour be to be sponsored by Dell? Like Michael Dell!! You know - this Guy!!! —>

Somewhere in Hell, Satan is weeping.

Thursday, October 9

The Walkmen / The Little Ones / Young Mammals
@ Walter’s on Washington (8PM)

If youse likes the indie rock. I suggest you head down to this show. The Walkmen kick out some lovely emotive pop. The Little Ones have some horribly endearing vocals and guitars that left me a fan after their last show at Walters a few years back. Then there are, of course, the Young Mammals are one of Houston’s premier pop bands with energizing songs and shows that have no equal. Go!

Helios Creed / Chrome / Bible of the Devil
@ Rudyard’s
San Fransisco bad ass guitarist Helios Creed has been at it for quite some time both under his own moniker and under the name Chrome. If you are a fan of the Psych, this show is a must.

Bob Schneider
@ McGonigel’s Mucky Duck
Pleasant Austin singer songwriter. Much like Earth we file him under Mostly Harmless.
