With Poor Pilate and Linus Pauling Quartet, 9 p.m. Saturday, January 5, at Rudyard's, 2010 Waugh, 713-521-0521 or www.rudyardspub.com.
On Saturday, Galveston surf-junk-garage trio the Escatones release a new seven-inch, "Out of Sight/East Beach Stomp," a teaser for fans while the group continues readying a full-length studio album for later this year. This offering is especially interesting because the Escatones were joined in the studio by Paul Leary of the Butthole Surfers, who contributed lead guitar to "Out of Sight." We'll have to see if Leary himself shows up at Rudz to sit in, but the Escatones will be joined by ubiquitous giggers Poor Pilate and the metallic cavemen of Linus Pauling Quartet.
