Almost Showtime for House of Blues

Photos by Chris Gray

Monday morning, a construction crew attached House of Blues' new sign to the exterior of the nationwide restaraunt/music venue franchise's new Houston location at 1204 Caroline in the Houston Pavilions complex. HOB's first show is Saturday with New Orleans revival-rockers Cowboy Mouth; other first-week shows include Presidents of the United States of America with Austin's The Black & White Years (Sunday); Ghostland Observatory (Oct. 14); Reverend Horton Heat with Asleep at the Wheel and Houston's Whiskey River Revival (Oct. 17); and the official grand opening with the dudes from According to Jim and Ghostbusters (Oct. 18). See www.hob.com/houston for ticket info and all that good stuff.

Rocks Off will have a slideshow of HOB's interior - including several custom murals by Houston-area artists - in the next day or two. A few more exterior-type pictures after the jump. - Chris Gray
