For all you heads out there in Houston looking for something good to do, tonight is your lucky night. There are 2 awesome shows tonight that you should try to make it to.
First, there's a new band in town called Mezclan
. Kirk Madden (of Rhythm Room
fame) plays percussion in it, and the music style generally falls under the "world music" heading - guitar, percussion, didgeridoo, and a few other instruments. I've heard some of their music, and I can highly recommend them. They'll be playing their debut show at Brasil tonight, starting at 9:30, so go by and check it out.
Second, you've probably heard of a group called the Trade
. They're a confederation of jazz players who've been stepping up to the plate at Helios
every Monday night for years. 5 years, to be exact! Tonight is their 5 year anniversary. So, hey, go by and check that out as well. Things get fired up around 10 and go late.
See you there.
