It's nice to know there are still a few idealists around. The folks over at the Proletariat are hosting Commune Music, a weekly showcase of local bands. Promotional materials for the event emphasize that the show is not a competition but "an attempt to bring together artists from various genres." Today's lineup includes the Tie That Binds, Violin and the John Sparrow Band. (Though considering that former Tie member Kevin Richardson is now a member of the John Sparrow Band, it's likely those groups are already well acquainted.) 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. 903 Richmond. For information, call 713-523-1199 or visit www.theproletariat.net. $3 to $5.
