You cant help but disobey The Love Me Nots. In other (incorrect) words, you cant not love them. The Phoenix foursome rounds out a mix of sleek, fuzzy garage and surf ditties with riffs and beats too infectious to ignore. In true 60s/70s fashion, each song is driven by jangly guitars and distorted organs. Their sound borrows from the old without hacking it, making for an enjoyable and boogie-ful blast to the past. If thats not enough, singer Nicole Laurennes sexy alto will drive the boys mad, and she tops it off with go-go boots, a miniskirt and a beehive hairdo. (Grrr.) It all starts with local rockers Black Black Gold at 10 p.m. Rudyards, 2010 Waugh. For information, call 713-521-0521 or visit www.rudyards.com. $7.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
