We got there, only to find that a birthday party was going on for the guy that used to own Rockefellers. I was a bit sad to find out that it wasn’t going to be an El Orbits night like it generally is and wasn’t looking forward to the other bands (though, to be honest, I didn’t even know who was playing).
Boy, was I in for a treat. The first band that was up was Diunna Greenleaf & Blue Mercy. They were incredible. Diunna is this awesome, sexy as hell, blues singer. As Katie put it, it was like we got a birthday present, it was so amazing listening to her sing.
It turns out that Diunna & Blue Mercy are having a CD release party in Humble this Saturday, which is pretty close to where I live since I’m stuck out in the suburbs in Spring. I’m going to try and make it out, so send me an e-mail (kymberlieATneuroticfishbowlDOTcom) if you plan on going. Here’s the info from the website (no time is listed, though I’m sure if you called, you could find out):
Twin Oak Tavern
211 E. Main St.
Humble, TX 77338
Like I said, she was awesome, so it would be well worth checking her out if you can. According to her site, there isn’t another Houston show scheduled for months.
