During the largest crawfish fest. of the South, you’ll experience 25 tons of mudbugs; fun for the whole family (games, rides, karaoke contests ((!!!)) and more) plus live music from some great local musicians. A few bands on my list to check out are:

Texas favorite and master of the party-country genre, Roger Creager (5/14, 10:30 p.m.)

An eclectic mix of H-town Acoustic, Americana and Folk Rock, Come See My Dead Person (5/14, 5 p.m.)

Last year’s Battle of the Band winner, thus earning a spot at Bonnaroo, Tyagaraja (5/14, 4 p.m.)

Houston favorite sings classic country and 2-step, Miss Leslie and her Juke Jointers (5/21, 4:30 p.m.)

I am warming up to zydeco more than ever before but am not entirely familiar with it. Leave a comment telling me what bands I need to check out (zydeco or not)! I’m always down to hear new acts.

Early Warnings:

Tonight: Das Rascist at Fitzgerald’s; Surfer Blood at House of Blues

Posted on

Tonight’s gonna be huge!

Brooklyn joke-rap group Das Racist will headline tonight’s excellent lineup at Fitzgerald’s. Although I’ve heard of Das Racist before  – I never listened to their music til just now (All Tan Everything is currently playing). The subject matter is pretty rediculous (i.e. Combination Pizza Hut/Taco Bell) but this talented duo manage to execute each song cleverly & swiftly. Also performing are Houston favorites Fat Tony & Muhammadali as well as Simple Success – a group to definitely keep your eye on. Do this! And you can click ‘I like it’ for your chance at a free pair of tickets. Tonight, 8 p.m.

Floridian group Surfer Blood will grace our presence tonight at House of Blues. This indie rock group has a distinct sound – using a lot of octave strums & retro tones. It’s no secret that these guys are influenced by the Beach Boys. They do a great job of executing the kind of vibe that makes you want to lie on a sandy beach in their home state. A beach that isn’t shark infested. Tonight 8 p.m. Click ‘I like it’ for your chance to win a pair of tickets!

Rodeo ticket giveaways; Jack Ingram & The Trishas

Posted on

Join us tonight for the Do713 roundup! It’ll be a great way to kick off the weekend and get you into the Rodeo spirit. Live music from southern country/rock group The Captain Legendary Band, great drink specials and GIVEAWAYS! Do713 will be giving away  a $50 bar tab; rodeo tickets and concert tickets. All you have to do is show up and put your name on the list to win any of these great prizes. Chances of winning should be pretty good! Thanks to Study Break Magazine and Enchanted Rock Texas Vodka for sponsoring this event with us. Tonight from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. at Armadillo Palace.

If you haven’t been to Blanco’s bar & grille – you’re missing out on a great old-school joint in the heart of the Kirby area. The fastest shuffleboard table in town and great food too! Quite regularly they have live country music and generally it is more on the old-fashioned country side. This place is nothing but charm. If you go – let us know what you think!

On Friday night, Jack Ingram is performing with The Trishas at the Firehouse Saloon. Ingram sings happy-go-lucky country songs – makes you wanna grab a beer, a lady & shuffle that sawdust around the dancefloor! The Trishas are 4 beautiful and talented women that sing folksy blues music. Click the link above to see them rocking out acoustically! Yeehaw!!

Check the blog again tomorrow, I’ll fill you in on what’s going on this weekend. Don’t forget – Monday is that big day you’re supposed to buy chocolates and jewelry!
