Haters gonna hate, but Houston's alternative-venue culture is thriving.

Houston house shows are no joke.

"The people that came to [Pisshaus] were never disrespectful, but the neighborhood fucking hated us, especially the people that moved into the condos right across the street," Schoolcraft recalls. "They were the reason we eventually moved. No one appreciates good music at late hours of the night anymore."

"House shows are the best because they are a place where an artist can perform completely uninhibited," Ruiz says. "There have been times when I've seen an artist have to turn it down or just stop the show at bars and venues. That just makes me think, what's the point of even having them perform?"

I haven't been much to any of the other "alternative" venues discussed here, but I've been to the Jenner several times, dragged along by a friend.

The Jenner house is comprised of a bunch of loser hipster alcoholics who do ridiculous crap and think that its wonderfully arty, quirky, and edgy. This would all be tolerable if they weren't realllly judgemental.

I'm paraphrasing of course:

"Yes, I work for a company to pay the bills and no I'm not pretentious enough to call myself an 'artist' "

"oh... we're all kind of artists, you know?"


effing kidding me??

I am almost certain that this picture is from the show at Baltazar's house (I don't believe it has a "name") and not the Dr. Office.

@jpineda1982 my bad. too much PBR over the years, maybe - but still a good pic of a vibrant Houston performer and people who know how to have a good time no matter where they are. -jesse
