Three awards will be handed out to listeners - Online Contributor of the Year, Caller of the Year and the all-important Ultimate Gamer. The prize, a glass beer mug, will be ready for immediate filling. 7:30 p.m. Warehouse Live, 813 St. Emanuel. For information, call 713-225-5483 or visit www.warehouselive.com. $5 to $20.
