Lineup survives while Guns 'N' Roses loads up

Breaking News Staff

Barring a last-minute cancellation, Guns 'N' Roses is set to grace the Compaq Center's stage Tuesday, and local lineups haven't seemed too appealing. But the music scene won't give up. This weekend's lineup offers concert-goers everything from the renowned Battle of the Bands to even Erykah Badu's little sister, Nayrok.


Fitzgerald's will play host to the semifinal round of Battle of the Bands. Spanish Inquisition, King Louie and the Swinging Monkeys, Graph Siva, and Walking 49 perform upstairs while Modern Day John, Blur Circle, Undefined and My Own Rival plug in the amps downstairs.

The Greyhounds will make a pit stop at the Satellite Lounge.


On Friday the 13th, Schrodinger's Cat hopes to charm the Satellite crowd.

Rudyard's welcomes the Fondue Monks to the stage while Deep 6, Vatos Locos, Ale and Tarantula storm the stage at Mary Jane's.

Foundry, Meanpeace, Scripnotics and Chrome 44 visit the upstairs stage at Fitz's while Steve Steele, House of Moist, Magdalene, Lemonenemy and The Spiders crawl onto the stage downstairs.


Nayrok brings her act to Numbers. As part of "Soul Rock Live," Corey, Stoot, Coalesce and Funk Fangez will also perform.

Mary Jane's offers a solid lineup with Megan's Birthday, The Groceries, The Kants and Drill Box Ignition.

Moses Guest is scheduled to perform at Rudyard's, while Shawn Pander, followed by Bob Schneider, will bring the Satellite's weekend music to a close.

Meanwhile, Latin's Juanes will spice up the H'Town Arena Theatre.
