About the Cougar

Murder of Crows, Ouroboros rock tonight

This weekend got off to an early start Thursday when I met up with the guys from the band FEEL for an interview at Rudyard's. Tune in later this week when The Daily Cougar brings that interview to you.

Friday I attended a horribly disappointing Coal Chamber/Type O Negative concert at the Aerial Theater. Luckily, the evening was not lost to the poor performance -- after the show I was able to check out a couple of cool local venues, and then finally settled on a dance club.

Local artist Carolyn Wonderland will be at Rudyard's on Saturday night to help Horseshoe celebrate its CD release.

As for the local music scene Saturday, at No tsu oH, (Houston spelled backwards!) an eclectic coffeehouse located at 314 Main, local band All Transistor celebrated the release of its new CD. Having prior engagements I was unable to personally attend the CD release party; however, I plan to check this band out in the near future and perhaps get my hands on a copy of that new CD for a review.

So what's in store for the local scene this week?

Tonight, Murder of Crows and Ouroboros will play at Rudyard's.

Rudyard's is located at 2010 Waugh. The shows usually get started around 10 p.m. Bring your ID because all shows at Rudyard's are 21 and older!

Wednesday, getting started early in the afternoon, local band Japanic is scheduled to play at the patio behind the UC at 11:30 a.m. That is, if the weather clears up. 

Wednesday night is "College Night" at Fitzgerald's. To get in cheaper bring your student ID. The band Brain Freeze 190 is scheduled to play.

Thursday night, D.R.U.M. will take over the house at Rudyard's. 

Friday, a show you won't want to miss is Simpleton Music, which will take over the house with its funk-infused, rock-rap sound at Instant Karma, located at 1617 Richmond. 

Also Friday, Pinkston and Pale will play Rudyard's.

That same night, Nothing (featuring former members of Deadhorse) will play upstairs at Fitzgerald's with the band Noise. The cost for this show is $6 for adults and $8 for minors. Downstairs, Joe 'Guitar' Hughes will play; the cost for this show is also $6 for adults and $8 for minors. Fitzgerald's is located at 2706 White Oak at Studemont.

Also Friday, Resurgance A.D. will play with the band Drone and Emo's, which is located at 2700 Albany.

Saturday, at Emo's the hard-core band Sinus is set to rock.

Also playing Saturday, Free Radicals will play upstairs at Fitzgerald's. The cost for this show is $6 for adults and $8 for minors. Downstairs, Global Village will play; the cost for this show is $6 adults and $8 minors.

That same night, Horseshoe will celebrate its CD release with Carolyn Wonderland at Rudyard's.

On Sunday, No Use for a Name, Mad Caddies, Good Riddance and The Ataries will play upstairs at Fitzgerald's. The cost for this show is $10.

Thank you to all of you who have been e-mailing me.
