We’re having a party at The Kessler!

20 May

This Saturday, May 22, we’re presenting our first show since SXSW at The Kessler. Giggle Party, Manned Missiles, Noonday Morningstar and The Bizaroo Kids will all be playing and tickets are only $10.

The show will have a birthday party theme (not for anyone in particular, but just because birthday parties are fun) and we’ll be giving away free tickets to the Houston Free Press Summerfest. It will be an all-ages show and a good time for everyone.

We’ll see you there!

The never-ending NX35 track-by-track: Week 1

19 Feb

So here’s the deal: we’ve been fairly light on the NX35 coverage due mainly to, well, some “involvement” with the festival. In an effort to provide some level of “countdown” coverage, we are going to go through 20 tracks from 20 bands at a time every Friday until the weekend of the conferette. (For those of you who are a little slow, there are three weeks left until NX35, which means we will be sharing 60 tracks with you.) Let’s hope this helps all of you have a better understanding of the music that is quickly approaching. If you like any of the bands, check out when/where they’re playing and possibly find out more info at NX35.com. Continue reading

Month of List(s): The Best Things to happen Locally in ’09 part 1

29 Dec

It’s been a rather wonderful year locally. We’ve seen bands sign to labels and break through nationally and internationally. We’ve seen new bands pop up and bring something different to the area and established acts release work we always knew they had in them. With that in mind, we’re tossing out three days’ worth of things we found exciting. This list is in no particular order and we’re trying to cover as much ground as possible, so apologies for things we miss.

Enjoy.

Manned Missiles “Might As Well” album artwork

14 Oct

That’s all you get, but more details coming soon.

Snap Shot: Manned Missiles (with an “i”)

2 Sep

(ed. All this week we’re doing band “Snap Shots” of the groups we have performing on Saturday, the 5th. This is one of those.)

I talk about Manned Missiles all the time, so I decided to let the guys tell you about themselves.

Hello, we’re Manned Missiles (AKA Manned Jizziles AKA Ol’ Dirty Missiles). We play melodic noise from our mouths and corresponding instruments. We’re recording our second attempt at an EP with Joel from Small Time Ruffians (shameless plug) very soon. It will be called Might as Well and we will performing it in its entirety at The Schoolhouse (shameless plug #2) this saturday for all you degenerates to enjoy and dance to. Goodnight.

Also, they told me the other night that the new music is “T-Rex dance music” which if it’s the band is awesome, if it’s the dinosaur it’s even better.

Rundown:7/20 to 7/26

20 Jul

I can’t believe they’re letting Martellus Bennett host the DOMAs, it’s a slightly worse idea then CGI Guinea Pigs who fight terrorist. Really anyone who has paid attention to this guys exploits on the net over the last year knows that this is a disaster waiting to happen. In fact let’s set some odds for what he might end up doing

Forget he’s only getting to do this because he get’s paid to play a kids game: 1-2

Mispronounce one of the band names:even

Say something incredulous that shows he’s sort of oblivious to the sacrifices of his forebears: 3-1

Unknowingly insult the guy who’s checks allow him to act like an over sized 12 year old with a brand new copy of “The Complete Chappelle’s Show”: 5-1

Insist he be allowed to perform a freestyle/skit: 5-1

Mispronounce two of the band names: 8-1

Rhyme “Romo” with “Homo”…again: 12-1

Have a clue who any of the performers are: 50-1

I know I sound like an ass for this, but as someone of a similar age, and back ground I feel I can say youth is no excuse for ignorance.

Anyway, time to talk music. It’s abit of a calm week, other then the DOMA’s & our show on Tuesday, and the rather awesome show at the Handsome Kitten on Friday.
