With Hurricane Rita around, Houston lost out on some pretty cool shows. We missed Built to Spill, The Decemberists and Fiery Furnaces – just to name a few.
But let’s not pout about this too much – instead, try these shows on for size tonight:
** The Fruit Bats, Ghosty and Fishboy at Walter’s on Washington (4215 Washington Ave.) // $8 at 8pm
To be honest, I son’t know much about The Fruit Bats (although I hear they are rather Shins-like and cool), BUT let me hugely recommend Ghosty to you – a band from my former residence of Lawrence, KS. These guys are awesome and I am so stoked to see them again. Go go go go.
** Two Star Symphony with Landfall and The Mathletes at Helio’s (411 Westheimer Rd.)
** This Sunday (October 2), check out another Katrina Benefit show at the Mucky Duck (2425 Norfolk)
