Built to Spill's Doug Martsch is the most laid-back guy around, except when talking about basketball.

"I kind of remember that," he says of that October 2010 night at House of Blues. "I think that was during my acoustic stuff. I had just started playing acoustically, and I wasn't very good at it yet.

"It takes a lot more concentration," he adds. "I don't think I'd usually do that. If people talk, they talk. But I think I got a little flustered by it because it was pretty loud. We haven't played Fitzgerald's before. I think we'll be fine at a club like that.

"Then again," he continues, laughing subtly, "If people are talking, then maybe that means we're not playing that great of a show."

"We've played some horrible rooms in Houston, but we've had some great shows there," Martsch recalls. "I remember we played at the Engine Room a bunch."

True to his casual nature, Martsch isn't really approaching this Houston show with any set goals or expectations.

"We're just going to play some songs, and try to play them without messing up," he half-jokes. "Maybe not having the crowd talk through the set again is a goal, too — though I can't guarantee either of these things."
