As far as Houston music goes, what do people know? The rap scene is nationally recognized, of course. We've shipped out more and more country and indie rock acts over the years, but what about the more esoteric and bizarre selections? They're here as well, and the Station Museum is showing them off with its Summer Sound Series. Mainstream need not even apply, and check all your expectations at the door because they're meaningless. ''Houston has always had a very strong and consistent underground music scene far outside the mainstream and has been brazenly unyielding to its trends,'' said curator Lia Blyth. ''Houston has relentlessly generated artists and music that has inspired major musical change and has influenced the rest of the country and the world.''
Acts in the current series include T.E.F., who've been a major player in Houston's noise scene for years, crafting bizarre and harsh soundscapes that unnerve and destroy everyone they touch. Alimanas will also be adding their extreme Spanish punk explosion to the mix. Also on the bill are Corporate Park, Future Blondes and Werewolf Jerusalem.
