Returning for the second year in a row, Mildred’s Umbrella (MU) is teaming up with Rudyard’s British Pub and Houstonia Magazine for ‘Women Rock,’ a fundraiser benefiting the theater company’s 2019-20 season. The benefit concert will feature local female-fronted bands and solo artists, a silent auction, and a VIP section with hors d’oeuvres from Rudyard’s celebrated chef, Jordan Economy.

“We had such a great time putting the concert together last year that we decided to make it our annual fundraiser,” said Managing Director Rebecca Ayres. “This year is going to be a bit bigger though, with more musical acts and silent auction items spread throughout the venue.”

Associate Artistic Director and Concert Coordinator Miranda Morris added, “This fundraiser is vital for Mildred’s Umbrella. It’s our largest fundraiser of the year and will kick start our 2019/2020 season. Partnering with these great female artists to present ‘Women Rock’ again this year, is an honor and we are so grateful for their support. We’re taking over both floors at Rudyard’s for the 2019 concert; it’s going to be huge!”

Signed on for the 2019 concert are: Miears, Pretty Vacant, Quinn the Brain, Marina Rocks, Annika Chambers Band, Sweet Mama Cotton, Benita, Lazer Kittenz, Alli Villines, and more.

The funds raised from the evening will support MU’s theatrical productions and reading series, which promote both emerging and recognized women playwrights and directors, and its outreach program, Partners for A.R.T., which puts theater to work for local women service organizations.

Project Grimm (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/Project-Grimm-121509194528707/

Appointed by the Great Black Wizard to rain sorrow down upon the feckless masses. Project Grimm is a dagger in the side of joy.

 

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

“Houston band Slow Future has its own recipe of punk-inspired and soul-baring rock ’n’ roll…  influenced by many forms of popular music, but their delivery and product is undoubtedly authentic. The result is more innovative than it is imitative — a feat rarely accomplished in modern rock music.” –Jake Hollier, The Beaumont Enterprise

“This fourtet culls from the same sonic gene pool as early 1990s groove-oriented, heavy alternative, bands.  This is also a band that does not shy away from vocal harmonies, pop smarts, or occasional balladry.” Kelly Minnis, 979Represent

“It’s nice to see there’s still a place in Houston for unruly indie-rock bands who embrace reverb-soaked guitars and thickly marbled riffs, and see no need to turn down the volume, but will hit you with a deep thought or two the second your head starts nodding a little too hard.” –Chris Gray, Houston Press

 

 

Cactus Flowers (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/cactusflowersband

 

Only Beast (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/pg/OnlyBeast

“On their latest album, Again, they not only forge their own path, they burn the bridge that got them there. Full of rock throttle and intense vocals, there are songs here that sound like pain and desperation chimed from the highest towers. This band always does things in a fresh and new way, and the end result of their characteristically novel approach is one of the most intriguing and engagingly different albums I’ve heard in a very long time.” – David Garrick, Free Press Houston

“Collectively, their name suits them – Salinas goes from nuanced to a frenzied, blood-in-the-water attack in a heartbeat; Bernick’s instrumental savvy drives the band’s sound, but there’s something wild and instinctual about his playing, too. Renee prowls the stage like a predator, waiting until the perfect moment to pounce with a big voice expressing timeless motifs. The trio’s dynamic live show has made them one of Houston’s premier bands …” – Jesse Sendejas Jr., Houston Press

“Houston’s Only Beast are a fascinating band, combining elements of post-punk, progressive rock, and goth rock into a sound all their own, with vocalist Danielle Renee wailing atop the mélange like a 21st century Siouxsie Sioux.” – Kelly Minnis, 979 Represent

Denim Demons
(No info at this time)

 

The Velostacks (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/Velostacks/

Motorcycles. Leather. Rock n’ Roll. Vive La Velostacks!!! Although originally starting in 2013, it was 2014 that saw The Velostacks transition from a nearly dead idea to a one of Houston’s hardest working rock n’ roll bands. Following a chance meeting at a motorcycle rally, Curtis W. DeGidio (Chrome Kickers, Chelsea Hotel, The Guillotines) and Donnie Stokes (UGH, Satanic Overlords of Rock n’ Roll) quickly went to work. Houston music scene legend, J.R. Delgado (Sugarshack, Humungos, Screech of Death) was brought aboard on bass guitar, with Arthur Hayes (The Next) jumping in on drums and Richard Crishock (Mister Pink, Texas Mod Crushers, Johnny Rioux and the Seven One Three) rounding out on lead guitar. After playing a fury of shows around Houston and Austin, Dave Ng (Latchkey Kids) was brought aboard to take over drums. Playing many gigs and constantly writing, The Velostacks recorded the “I Live and Die for Rock n’ Roll”, b/w “FU and Your Cocaine & “Brain Dead Cagers” single. As the undisputed kings of motorcycle leather rock n’ roll, The Velostacks, with help of their dedicated fan base ,The Sleazestack Militia, declared their intent of raising Hell and taking names. Late 2015 saw more personnel changes as Curtis moved from rhythm guitar to guitar and lead vocals. Bass duties were picked up by Houston’s rock n’ roll legend Christian “The GFN” Best (The Down and Dirties, Hell City Kings, Whiskey River Revival) and drums passed to Nate Bandor (The Grizzly Band). With this lineup, their first LP “Black Magic & Motor Oil” was released early 2017.

 

Whorehound (Houston, TX)
http://www.myspace.com/whorehound

Whorehound is Texas Roadhouse Metal. Diesel, one legged dogs, pickup trucks with nails in the bed and FM roads you don’t much want to change your tire .. sundown. The dirt on their boots is from a storm where it rained mud; they don’t have swagger – they have rust. Their set Sunday was the best we’d ever seen them put on. If you’re looking for something heavier that nails the metal fundamentals filtered through a punk aesthetic – be sure to check them out next time they play. – skyline.net

 

Hell’s Engine (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/HellsEngineRocks/

Under dogs of the scene with a very big, nasty bite…. These four Houston punk rock n’ rollas originally formed in 2004, and after both a hiatus and some restructuring, reformed in 2015. With only a self-titled demo recording to claim, they’ve recently hit the studio and released a new EP. If that’s not enough, their single “Chopper Slut” will be released on a 7-inch vinyl split with New Jersey’s Electric Frankenstein on Self Destructo records this fall, 2016. With influences like Turbonegro, Motorhead and D.R.I…… Hell’s Engine will surely not be running low on fuel anytime soon.

Poor Dumb Bastards (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/Poor-Dumb-Bastards-126350582202/

Poor Dumb Bastards were formed in March 1991 by long time hetero life partners and musical collaborators, Mike Porterfield and Byron Dean. The initial interest was to form a band and a sound that captured the twisted and bizarre sense of humor of the two. Drawing on their collective influences and experiences from some of their earlier work, bands like Cretinoid, Plutonium Flatheads and the Byron Weird Group, Mike and Byron created a genre all their own, hence “Texas Drunk Rock” was born. The now legendary live shows and creative duct tape use, has seen the band through some tough times. The death of Guitarist Hunter Ward in 2007 almost put an end to the journey. In 2008 PDB decided to get together and finish the album “Price of Rebellion” a fitting tribute to Hunter. PDB has won three Houston Press band of the year awards and one song of the year in 1997 for the at the time unreleased classic true story of “My Dad Two Whores and a Crackpipe”. Poor Dumb Bastard’s second ever show was opening for Smashing Pumpkins at the now closed Emo’s Houston. Playing with bands like Fear, Killdozer, Joan Jett, Marky Ramone, and many more. This enabled PDB to carve their initials on the bathroom door of the Texas music scene. Through the many years and many lineup changes, these Ill-minded sewer rockers have stayed true to their founding principals. POWER, PERFORMANCE, PERVERSION

Here is the lineup for tonight…

The Beaumonts (Lubbock, TX)
http://thebeaumontstx.com/

There’s something about Lubbock. Something other than the oppressive blue sky, the unavoidable cloud of shit-smell that occasionally engulfs the city, the flat, featureless landscape, or the preponderance of teen pregnancy, boredom, alcoholism, and God. There’s music. Yes, indeed there is. The Hub City has spawned music like you wouldn’t believe. Music loved by folks the world over. Even the real “King of Rock and Roll” came from Lubbock, and if you believe that (which you’d be a damn fool not to), then it ain’t too much of a stretch to believe Lubbock is also home to the greatest country band that ever existed. That band is THE BEAUMONTS.

It wasn’t too long ago that four of Lubbock’s most loved veteran musicians decided the state of Texas country music was dismal at best, and horrifying at its worst. Somehow, over the last twenty years, it became acceptable for a group of frat-boys to show up in thrift-store AC/DC shirts, play half-ass Lynyrd Skynyrd tunes about drinking Lone Star and smoking weed, and call that “country.” Well, good friends, THE BEAUMONTS didn’t think that was “all that damn country” and decided to do something about it. What resulted was a juggernaut of essence, the trooest of troo cvntry, something akin to the creation of the universe, but with Telecasters. Behold, good friends, and delight in the majesty of THE BEAUMONTS!

 

Killer Hearts (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/KillerHeartsOfficial/

 TKH – featuring members of Electric Frankenstein, Texas Terri & The Stiff Ones, Down & Dirties and The Wrong Ones
“Killer Hearts are a searing rock n roll band from Houston. – These guys are impressive to see live and they have the rock ‘n’ roll power ” -David Garrick, FPH

Satanic Overlords of Rock n Roll (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/satanicoverlordsofrnr/

Evil Rock N Roll in the vein of the Dwarves, Black Sabbath, Turbonegro and all of the other Devil loving rock bands you seem to enjoy!

 

The Cops (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/THe-Cops-1176247895781584/

There was a time when punk music didn’t make a statement, but it was more fun and politically incorrect. Acts like NoFX did kind of whatever they wanted while still dropping some quality punk records without apologizing for the sentiments expressed within their songs. Part of the aesthetic to punk music is to buck whatever the mainstream does, so it should come as no surprise that there’s a new punk band who is far from politically correct. Houston’s The Cops, featuring members of Talk Sick Brats, dress like police officers and sing songs from the cop’s point of view. Like the way KISS put on makeup and became the characters they portrayed, this four-piece dons police attire and become characters singing what you’d expect a cop to sing about. This year they dropped four singles that are tongue in cheek and far from serious, but they’re also some pretty solid punk jams that are catchy and hard to ignore. – David Garrick, FPH

 

SomethingFierce

Something Fierce (Houston, TX)
https://somethingfierce.bandcamp.com/

Something Fierce is a three-piece punk/pop band from Houston, Texas whose music combines the sound and attitude of first-wave 1977 punk with an energy and outlook that’s thoroughly contemporary, updating the attack of the Clash and the Buzzcocks for the 21st century.

Something Fierce were founded in 2005 by guitarist and lead vocalist Steven Garcia (ex-Gun Crazy and Born Liars) and bassist and vocalist Niki Sevven (formerly with the Neckbreakers); the group went though several drummers before teaming up with Andrew Keith, who they recognized from his frequent presence at local shows and parties.

In 2006, Something Fierce recorded their debut album, Come for the Bastards, which they released themselves. The release was followed by frequent touring through the Southwest, with occasional road trips into the South and Midwest; they group also recorded a handful of 7″ releases, including a split single with the Hangouts. In 2008, Something Fierce released their second full-length album, There Are No Answers; while the first pressing of the album was distributed by the band itself, the Portland, Oregon-based punk label Dirtnap Records liked the disc and reissued it after signing the band in 2009.

The band continued to tour extensively and released a 7″ on Action Town Records in 2010 before recording their third album, Don’t Be So Cruel, in 2011. The third album found Something Fierce’s sound evolving in a more sophisticated, pop-influenced direction without losing sight of their punk roots. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
