r/Houston Board Gaming at Rudyard’s Pub!

Every Wednesday Night

 

 

 

Come have a drink, meet some interesting people, and play some awesome board games. Our meeting place is Rudyard’s Pub on Waugh. They have damn good food and a decent beer selection. Three parking lots to the North, West, and South West and some street parking a block over.

If you are new to the world of modern board games have no fear, everyone is awesome and you’ll have a great time. We have all types of games; social games with easy rules and lots of interaction or more competitive games as well as cooperative ones. TableTop on youtube is a good place to get a feel for the types of games we usually play.

We average around 30 people and we’re upstairs in the private event area.

https://johnwayneisdead.bandcamp.com/

Johnwayneisdead is an punk/outlaw duo hailing from the sweat and sizzurp drenched third-coast that is Houston Texas. Theyhave been slinging their bare-bones approach to punk back and forth across the country in a series of tours over the last year.

The Smashed Idols hail from Houston, Texas where we rip up the scene with hooky guitar, bass, and drumz. We like to mix it up with hot space sauce and alien lyrics. The jam Bring The Invasion was influenced by Stephen Hawking’s warning that we need to colonize other planets before we get visited by our nasty neighbors.

Friday 18 January 2019 – Switchblade Jesus, Funeral Horse, Cactus Flowers

 

Switchblade Jesus (Corpus Christi, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/SwitchbladeJesus/

Hailing from the land of oil and tar Switchblade Jesus is a 5 piece equivalent of a heard of elephants slamming into a brick wall.  Jamming together since 2010 they had a killer ride so far – playing live nearly every week they were forged to a unbreakable live unit. They played a shitload of shows with great bands – just to name a few: Kylesa, Orange Goblin, The Sword, Wo Fat, Egypt, Baroness.   Asked what the fans can expect of the band, the guys state: Loud alcohol fueled heaviness laced with fuzz and slight hallucinations of tube amps piercing your mind. …that is a word!

“Upon first listening to Switchblade Jesus you may be hit with some conflicting reactions. They certainly play stoner rock and they sound like much of the rest of the stoner rock world available throughout the webisphere and beyond. But then you realize, hey, they play stoner rock and they sound damn good! There is deep, demonstrable musicianship and passion on each track. That combination is the hallmark of metal acceptability – the ability to not just play and sing, but to demonstrate a fierce, abiding aptitude as well as massively relishing the opportunity to play.” – Nuclear Dog, Heavy Planet

 

 

Funeral Horse (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/FuneralHorse/

“If judged on the merit of riffs alone, Texan tarnation masters Funeral Horse would be a holy grail of hard-rock. The constant shifts from road-rage solos to dusty blues riffs to pavement cracking noise-rock/hardcore to vintage 70s hard rock backed by a walloping rhythm section will keep you guessing and ducking for cover as to which direction the bombardment is coming from next. With band members lovingly named Paul Bearer (vocals/guitars) and Jason Andy Argonauts (bass), the entire project has the recipe for sheer global conquest via tongue-in-cheek humor laced into a serious, non-nonsense rock foundation.” Jay S. – Teeth of the Divine.

“Anyone who wants more from their stoner rock than chewed repetitions of a sound we heard countless times before can advantageously turn to the upcoming album from Funeral Horse. Where many others in the constant flow of riff-based rock band for a life in the absence of their own creative initiatives, these Houston-based men refreshingly disrespectful of genre boundaries and preconceptions about how it “should” sound.” Maria van der Lee – Slave State Magazine (Sweden)
