Show Of The Week

September 9, 2015


Saturday is mega-packed when it comes to quality shows (see below), and I have no idea which one you should attend.  Maybe just run between all of them throughout the night?  I don’t know.  Also, I won’t be in town and will be missing all of it, so I’m admittedly pretending that none of it is actually happening.

Now about Friday, I expect to see you all at Holy Mountain for The Tontons, Fat Tony and Wrestlers.  The lineup is diverse – rock, rap and dance – and each of the acts easily rank as some of Houston’s best.  Not to mention it’s September, which means that we nearing the end of Holy Mountain’s existence.  Yikes!  So come out, indulge in an all-Houston jam session, hug the Holy Mountain staff and let’s have some fun.

Tix are $10 if buy them early, $13 at the door.  OR, if you want, you can WIN guest list spots through SOTO.  Just shoot an email HERE with HOUSTON in the subject line.  I’ll pick a winner on Friday!

Full Disclosure – I’m also excited for Friday’s show because I’ve worked with all of the acts through my gig at Red Bull Sound Select.  It’ll definitely be rad to have them in one place so that I can high five the hell out of them.
