Best Open-Mike Comedy Night Houston 2013
With a decent amount of local talent, Houston deserves more stages to feature homegrown comics. Thankfully, Rudz has stepped forward to devote one night a week to nurturing newcomers and showcasing seasoned vets…you can check out a rotating cast of characters, for free — you’d be pretty hard-pressed to find a more fun way to spend a Monday night. Especially if your next Monday night involves going to a funeral. Trust us, this’ll be waaaay funnier.” – Houston Press
Our Free Comedy Open Mic Show Opens At 7:30. Show starts at 8:00

Mystery Loves Company (Houston, TX)

Mystery Loves Company is the result of an informal collaboration session between Carlos A. Machado and Madeline Herdeman. The two met while performing an open mic at the legendary Mucky Duck in Houston, Texas. Carlos, a self-taught guitarist and songwriter, had been touring the local open mic circuit for a few months after being encouraged by a friend to try out his songs in front of an audience. Madeline, conservatory-trained cellist, was in search of another performance outlet in which she could put to use her years of training and love for singing when she decided to arrange and perform some pop songs, also at the encouragement of a friend.

The result of that initial collaboration was a sound neither one expected. A couple of weeks later, they performed “Make it Stay”, “Stay Awake”, and “Worlds Collide” at JP Hops House, and the the following night at the Mucky Duck, and it was obvious then that the project deserved to be explored further. A number of Musicians have been a part of the Mystery Loves Company line-up since. Most notably, Alauna Rubin (clarinet) and Terrence Allison (drums) have been major contributors in studio recordings, songwriting, and live performances.

Mystery Loves Company tours regularly in Texas and yearly around the Midwest, and plans are always underway for new venues and locations. They have also kept a rigorous writing and recording schedule since its inception.

Insolvent (Houston, TX)
http://insolventmetal.com/

INSOLVENT is a death metal band from Houston, Texas, formed in 2014. The origins of the group lie with the stunninglybrutal vocalist Alice Lima, who traveled to Houston from her native Brazil to visit family in 2010 only to unexpectedly find love in the Lone Star State. Alice met her husband Joe Lovchik at a rock show in Houston and emigrated to the U.S. soon after, leaving behind her band Tharsis as well as a law career to explore the muddy blackness of Houston’s spirited underground.

As the culture shock of the big move began to wear off at last, Alice set to work putting her own band together, deep in the heart of Texas. With her husband locking down the low end, she turned to another recent Texas transplant, guitarist Tom Longnecker of the New York death metal band Bloodseeker, to help forge a histrionic new sound. Nate Smith of Houston stoner-rock instrumentalists Alone on the Moon was installed behind the drum kit, and INSOLVENT was born – a modern, mature outfit influenced by the entire death metal pantheon from Obituary to Origin and ready for all-out aural assault on a world of compromised authority and bankrupt ideas.

Started back in 2009 by Josue and Stephan, the band has it’s roots in straight-forward thrash metal with influences of death, black, and hardcore punk. They recruited Joshua on bass and main vocals and John Fernandez of local band Annihilist on lead guitar and released a demo in 2011. Not long afterwards, John left to join Legion (now Mastema). The band then welcomed long-time friend Miguel Quiroz on lead guitar and released another demo in 2013. With the addition of Miguel, the band took on a heavier, dirtier sound. Unfortunately, schedulingfactors got in the way and Miguel had to leave the band. He is still behind the scenes and helps with guitar work, photography, and graphic layouts. With the lead guitar slot open, the band enlisted the shredding talents of Camilo from neighboring locals Toxic Steel. Camilo’s addition brought a more speed metal vibe to the dark, heavy sound and the band released Descent Into The Abyss, the band’s first full length album in January 2015. The band is working on a self-recorded, self-produced demo (Age of Aggression) scheduled for release for Summer 2016.

Friday 02 December 2016 – An Evening with Super Robot Party, Electric Astronaut, and Slow Future

Super Robot Party (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/superrobotparty/

Super Robot Party was founded by… August of 2011.The band meshes glitch electronics with spaced out guitar and vocals. Super Robot Party conjures the likeness Mary Chain to form their …noisy indie rock.

I hadn’t seen Super Robot Party, but I know the guys from 10 years ago. Matt Crow was in mytwilightpilot, and there’s a definite mtp stamp on their sound, but the vocals take the band in a decidedly britpop direction, so it comes out a little like if you slowed down and then Americanized the sound of Doves. in other words, beautiful!- Jason Smith – spacecityrock.com

Super Robot Party: This new reverb-laden five piece crafts ethereal shoegaze drones, touched with tidbits of folk. The experimental mixture sounds a lot like someone’s garage in 1991, heck even a blend of several garages on the street, full of kids and guitars. The Pasadena group has nearly three dozen tracks available on Soundcloud, or for the full experience, catch them tonight at Dean’s with Jealous Creatures and A Sundae Drive.-Marc Brubaker – The Houston Press

Slow Future (Houston, TX)
http://www.slowfutureband.com/

SLOW FUTURE is a rock band from Houston, Texas.  The band originated in 2014 as a new beginning for guitarists/vocalists Joel Hoyle and Mike Starbuck, and drummer Koree Smith, who played in a previous band together.  Bassist Phil Jackson ran into Smith at a party and asked to join the trio’s new venture.  The quartet has created an instinctive blend of punk-inspired rock.  Their debut single, “Girl Gets Down”, echoes the grit of garage rock and the melancholic aggressiveness of ‘80s and ‘90s underground rock.  It’s all about making meaningful connections through real emotion translated into raw music. This group of self-styled, small town outcasts is releasing its debut E.P. in April 2016, and will be playing throughout the Southern region to support the release.  Let the music tell you the rest of the story!
