Before We Go: A Thousand Cranes, the Muses, Johnny Bush, the Old Quarter, Katy Perry, a Numbers Documentary and More

The above cartoon - give it a minute; it'll show up - is somehow tied into Saturday's show at Avant Garden featuring A Thousand Cranes, How I Quit Crack and Metal Rouge. Rocks Off wishes he could tell you how, but he digs the

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

homage. Colorado traditional Celtic duo

the Muses

will play a free show Wednesday, May 27, on the plaza in front of the main branch of the Houston Public Library (500 McKinney) at 6 p.m. "Whiskey River" author Johnny Bush will play this weekend's official grand opening of


, the Marfa bar recently opened by former Houstonian and current Marfa City Councilman

David Beebe


The Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe in Galveston, which withstood serious damage during Hurricane Ike, had even more when a main pillar gave way last week (right). Owner Wrecks Bell was forced to move his Guy Clark show to the club next door, but says the Old Quarter will be open for Saturday's Bob Dylan birthday tribute featuring Vince Bell, David Fahl, Matt Harlan, Opie Hendrix and more. Proceeds benefit the Galveston Island Humane Society; pay what you wish. Katy Perry, who was too sick to play House of Blues Tuesday but not to appear on American Idol Wednesday, has rescheduled (for now, anyway) for August 3 at Verizon Wireless Theater. All tickets for Tuesday, as well as the show she postponed in March, will be honored; additional tickets go on sale 5 p.m. Friday at Shoe Latif, the Danceparc DJ and center of the recent Sarah Palin/ controversy, is making a documentary about Numbers (or #'s, if you prefer). She'd would like anyone who used to go to the lower Westheimer eyeliner landmark, as well as other places like Babylon and Million Dollar City Dump, to get in touch. Email her at
