Best Open-Mike Comedy Night Houston 2013
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.

Super Robot Party (Houston, TX)
Super Robot Party was founded by… August of 2011.The band meshes glitch electronic
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
Electric Astronaut (College Station, TX)

Slow Future (Houston, TX)
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!
