Bust your eardrums just in time for finals

The Daily Cougar

Get your last dose of live music before you crash for finals.

Acid Mothers Temple will provide more sound than your ears can handle at Walter's on Washington, 4215 Washington Ave. The Japanese noise rockers are sure to give you an eardrum's full along with The Antarcticans and Jana Hunter. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $12. Call (713) 864-2727 for more information.

Southern Culture on the Skids will visit the Continental Club, 3700 Main St., with its country- and rock-infested boogie. Put your boots on, find a dance partner and call (713) 529-9899 for more information.

The all-female metal group Kittie will play at the Meridian, 1503 Chartres St. In the past, Kittie has requested that a fence be put in front of the stage so band members wouldn't get hit by the glass bottles that fans frequently throw at them during their set. I'm not encouraging this action, but I understand. Call (713) 225-1717 for more details.

Taproot will perform at Warehouse Live's Studio, 813 St. Emanuel St. Evans Blue will provide the opening entertainment. Call (713) 629-3700.

Legendary indie rockers Rainer Maria will play Walter's on Washington on Friday with The Happy Bullets and locals Buxton. Those who have missed one of Rainer Maria's numerous past performances should go to Walter's before the show opens at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12.

On Saturday, quirky rockers The Unicorns will return to Houston with a new name Islands. The new sound varies little from the original, but why change what works? Islands are supporting their latest release on Equator Records. The group will perform at 8 p.m. at Walter's with Why? and Cadence Weapon. Tickets are $12.

The International Festival continues Saturday with many performances including Steve Marley (yes, Bob's son) and the Skatalites, who are sure to deliver one of the best ska shows that Houston has seen in a while. For tickets, directions and more information, call (713) 654-8808, but it would be wiser to check out

Sunday, the festivities will continue with notable acts like Billy Joe Shaver and the Robert Cray Band bringing the festival to a close.
