Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Starting tonight, the weekly "They, Who Sound" creative music series at Avant Garden, 411 Westheimer, shifts its Sunday residency to Monday nights.

The May 1 gig that featured east coast sound sculptors Bonnie Jones and Suzanne Thorpe marked the last time "They, Who Sound" -- which features a gaggle of Houston improvisers, including David Dove, Sandy Ewen and Damon Smith -- will sound off on a Sunday evening.

Nameless Sound and other local experimental-music presenters are heading into their summer breaks, so Monday nights from 7 to 9 p.m. is going to be, more or less, "it" for this type of thing on a weekly basis.

In terms of monthly platforms, the Binarium Sound Series (which is also a podcast series) recently announced that they're moving to The Heights' 14 Pews, 800 Aurora Street, for its showcase that takes place the last Sunday of each month.

The series debuts at its new location from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday, May 29, with performances by The Core Trio, Robert Pearson/Carl Smith/Abel Cisneros/Damon Smith and Konstantinos Kouzas/Jonathan Jindra.

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.
