The Look Ahead: Lance at Leon’s, Pale at Warehouse and The Literary Greats at Continental Club
Monday flew by and Tuesday is bearing down. That’s the way these weeks work. No point in complaining about it. Tuesday used to be our favorite day, because it always (and I mean “always”) signaled going to the Harp for trivia. One of these days we’ll make a return visit to our haunt. For now, there’s just way too much to tell you about.
Tuesday Night Acoustics at Leon’s Lounge: Lance Smith
Where: Midtown-ish [1006 McGown St., 77002]
When: Tuesday, April 26th | 7:00PM
How Much: Free
Scoop’d From: Email
Leon’s Lounge is under new management these days. The Under the Volcano folks took over a few months back. If you haven’t been since it’s recent renovation you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Especially tonight… The last time we caught up with Lance Smith was just about a year ago at Rudyard’s. We’ll have to see how this unplugged show turns out at Leon’s Lounge.
Pale CD Release Party at Warehouse Live
Let them tell it: “Pale, the critically-acclaimed rock brotherhood of four, is pleased to unveil its latest offering, IN THE TIME OF DANGEROUS MEN, at a special CD release show Thursday, April 28, 2011 at The Studio at Warehouse Live in Houston.” We told you about your chance for the first listen to the new album by Houston’s own. Don’t blame us if you didn’t take it. You can right your wrong on Thursday. Your openers will be The Shiny Darks and Come See My Dead Person.
The Literary Greats CD Release Party at Continental Club
The new album is Black Blizzard and I’ve only been listening to it for all of three days, so I’m gonna let them describe themselves here:
“The Literary Greats (Houston, TX) may not set out to make the kind of music that creates a stir in your very being, alas that is the card they have been dealt. This affable quintet has been making music since 2003, and when they finally started recording and producing their songs in 2007, something truly magical happened – they inadvertently made the kind of music that sticks with you for a lifetime. Each album holds a different truth for each respective listener. The songs tug at whatever strings need the most attention.”
The Orbans (pictured above) out of the DFW area will be batting clean-up for The Literary Greats on Thursday. Maybe this time I’ll stick around instead of bolting like I did when they pulled the late shift at The Wheel Workers’ release.
