This Week’s Spotlight
Is On Pizza!!!!!


Saturday, September 6
Indiehouston.org Benefit Show,
featuring
Paris Falls, The McKenzies, Giant Princess, & Harlem
@ Late Nite Pie (302 Tuam)

6-11PM $3 suggested donation

We’ve plugged the first three bands endlessly in these blogs before but, hey, why not do it again? Paris Falls are awesomeness and I’d argue that live they kick it even harder than on their excellent albums. The Mckenzies are super fun pop to make your day skip. Plus they have bubbles; Don Ho would be proud! Giant Princess may get cranky when you don’t recognize them from a crowd but their music is such clever pop that we can’t help but forgive them. Harlem is in Austin … err the band that is…and also worship at the altar of garagey pop. It’s gonna be a cool show that will benefit an ambitious group of people and you can eat pizza while your there! I’ll be there for sure! I predict fun music and full bellies!

Oh yes. If you don’t know who IndieHouston.Org is, read our interview with them. (Link)

ALSO THIS WEEK

Friday, September 5

Adventure / Wicked Poseur / Benjamin Wesley
@ The Mink (7PM)

Remember when video game music was video game music? You know with all those awesome midi sounds? Yeah? Well, Ben Boeldt does too and he’s crafted a 16-bit danceable world that sounds as clever and amusing as that old NES you have in the attic. [9am update] I just got word of the support but do I really need to explain to you again the awesomeness of Wiched Poseur? I thought not.

Thursday, September 11th

Witchcraft
/TK Webb and the Visions/Graveyard
@ Rudyard’s
Straight-up heavy-duty whip out the bong rock. I’m pretty stoked about the Swedes but TK Webb’s new album is pretty sweet and we’ll actually bring you a short 5 question interview with the dude next Wednesday.

Dr. Dog/The Delta Spirit/Seth Kaufman
@ Walter’s on Washington

Crap! two solid shows on the same day! Dr. Dog’s poppy psychedelia is always a treat and while I’ve never seen them live I’d trust it’d be a hoot to see the songs translated on the stage. The Delta Spirit is also aces and in fact I’m a little more psyched about them as, while less baroque in production, the music hits much closer to home. Just dig the poppy booggie-woogie funky goodness of the song Trashcan. Seth Kauffman will provide some pretty nice self-recorded low-fi pop.

Street Dogs /Hell City Kings/Los Skarnales
@ Warehouse Live
Boston punkers take on the Hells City Kings (tattoos, guitars, and Bill Fool) and Los Skarnales (Ska en Español).
