You can listen to song after song by Houston hip-hopperBabel Fishh
without realizing theres something missing: rhymes. Thats because even without them, this emcee can flow as smoothly as any other rhymesayer. Babel Fishhs words are backed by abstract beats sampling everything from loud banging sounds to creepy organs. This may sound like a hard-to-follow, avant-garde jazz project, but it all actually comes together into a listener-friendly sound that will no doubt be appreciated by the fans of headliners Zechs Marquise. El Pasos progressive rock quartet ZM stays true to the genres extended-jam style in songs like 34:26. The opus is divided into four parts, which youll no doubt hear in full today after Babel Fishh and fellow openers The Television Skies, Wolves at the Door, Yoko Mono and DJ Shilbalam. 7:30 p.m. Warehouse Live, 813 St. Emanuel Street. For tickets and information, call 713-225-5483 or visit www.warehouselive.com. $8.
