The Axiom Reunion
This will be Houston's third major "scene" reunion this year, after the When We Ruled H-Town festivities this summer and The Island get-together earlier this month. Although Emo's shouldn't be discounted, the Axiom actually took over for The Island as Houston's refuge for punk, hardcore, and later what became known as grunge, functioning as a sort of clubhouse for alternative-minded individuals in the bleakly industrial eastern edge of downtown. This weekend Axiom alumni including the Pain Teens, Verbal Abuse, Dresden 45, Bark Hard, Sik Mentality, Toho Eiho and more return for some old tricks; see more on the reunion on our Rocks Off music blog.
