The music of Houston-based indie rock quartet Sharks and Sailors navigates you through turbulent melodies, crashing rhythms and gusty harmonies before finally setting you down like a lost ship after a storm. The vocals of guitarist Al Hendrix and bassist Melissa Lonchambon who served time in the power-pop band Panic in Detroit recall the emotional weight of Sunny Day Real Estate, while heavy riffage, thick textures and odd time signatures are reminiscent of Polvo. With a stellar lineup rounded out by Mike Rollin on rhythm guitar and Phil Woodward on drums, their new eponymous EP which they release today and live show will take you on a Titanic-style voyage without all the messy iceberg stuff. Traindodge, God's Temple of Family Deliverance and Golden Axe open at 10 p.m. Rudyard's, 2010 Waugh Drive. For tickets, call 713-521-0521 or visit www.sharksandsailors.com. $8.
