The Look Ahead: Heights Orchestra, Box 13 Reception, Rocky and Roky

Let’s get right down to it. You’re at work. You don’t want to be there. You’re dreaming of a better tomorrow.

Yep, that’s our mindset as well. So take a look below and don’t fret any longer.

We’re big fans of both Rocky Votolato as well as Matt Pond PA and we highly recommend checking out this show at Fitzgerald’s on Thursday night, but we mostly picked it for today’s post for continuity’s sake… as you read about another Roky below…

Roky Erickson w/ The Umbrella Man at Continental Club

Where: The Continental Club – The Fourth Ward [3700 Main St., 77002]
When: Saturday, October 1st | Doors at 8:ooPM

Roky Erickson’s 2010 effort made its way onto our Bestus Prospectus for local albums. Though the collaboration with Okkerville River won’t carry over to the Continental Club tour date this weekend, I’m sure you can expect nothing less than the best live music experience. Keep your ears open for “Goodbye Sweet Dreams.”
