We’re less than two weeks into 2022, and I’m already behind in my decision to watch more live music. But there’s always time to turn it around, and the recent announcement of RodeoHouston’s Star Entertainer Lineup should give a rather busy March. In the meantime, you can scroll down to see what’s in print next week.
Trampled by turtles
White Oak Music Hall – 01.13
Trampled By Turtles is known for its charming mix of folk, bluegrass and rock. Their latest album – 2019’s Life is good on the open road – so the Minnesota sextet reunited after a short break and the result was one of the group’s best records. Supported by Deer Tick, the beloved bluegrass rockers will play for the show tomorrow night at the White Oak Music Hall.
Stock Live – 01.13
Ernest Weatherly Green, Jr. – the singer, songwriter and producer better known as Washed Out – is the godfather of chillwave, a subgenre that loosely mimics 1980s electro-pop. He is known for recreating old dance music and reworking it into something more suitable for a modern crowd. On tour in support of his fourth studio album Little dinner, the native of Georgia will be visiting Warehouse Live tomorrow night.
The revival of the people’s family
Heights Theater – 01.15
Family Folk Revival’s last record marked the beginning of a new chapter for Houston folk rockers. The band’s third album, which was intended to reflect the energy of FFR’s live performances, told the story of two characters named Pro and Con. Anyone unfamiliar with the local outfit can pick up a copy of Electric Darlin Saturday night, where they play at the Heights Theater with Tony Kamel.
White Oak Music Hall – 01.18
For more than 20 years, Detroit’s Koffin Kats have been doing their part to keep psychobilly alive. Vic Victor’s bass-y vocals bring to mind Bauhaus’ Peter Murphy, while the band’s frenetic energy evokes people like Nekromantix. Supported by The Guillotines – a regional punk outfit – Koffin Kats is scheduled to perform at White Oak Music Hall next Tuesday.
