With Skeleton Dick, Hell City Kings and the American Heist, 7 p.m. Friday, August 24, at Fitzgerald's, 2706 White Oak, 713-862-3838 or www.fitzlivemusic.com.
This summer, blistery local rockers A dream Asleep morphed into Bury the Crown, playing their first gig as a "new" band at the Abbey Pub in late July. Friday night, BTC and a few friends are giving both their new name and first EP as such a proper launch party with this upstairs-downstairs takeover of Fitz. Nine bands, including Skeleton Dick, Hell City Kings, the American Heist and War Master, invade the Heights for a show few people will remember if they play their drinking cards right. It's free for those of legal age, making it one of the best values you'll see this weekend. Bring earplugs.
