Bayou Beat: Half Price Live Nation Tickets, Last Call for Photo Contest, First Call for Poster Exhibit, Final "They, Who Sound" (For Now) This Sunday

Live Nation's weekly Wednesday "No Service Fee" ticket offer is pretty stiff this week: Buy one ticket for dozens of shows at House of Blues or Verizon Wireless Theater - such as Alice Cooper, O.A.R., Jewel, Goodie Mob, Bob Saget, Drive-By Truckers, Hanson, Peaches, Stryper, Zappa plays Zappa and many more - and get another one free. Or buy two and get 'em both at half price. (And they tell us we sucked at math in school.) As always, today only; more information at www.livenation.com.

Speaking of Live Nation promotions, we're still looking for pictures of our dear readers and their favorite rock stars - or just the rock stars who happened to be around - so we can give away these two "Club Passports" that sort of obviate the above item because they'll get you in to every non-sold-out HOB show from now 'til New Year's Eve. Email your photos (please include name and phone number) to chris.gray@houstonpress.com. These passports are burning a hole in our pocket, but we'll give you until 9 a.m. Friday and put all the entries up in a slideshow later that day.

KTRU Revelry Report hosts Matthew Wettergreen and Phillip Beck are looking for local concert posters - as in locally made; they can be for local or touring shows - for an exhibit at Caroline Collective that begins November 20 and runs through January 1. All mediums are welcome, such as silkscreen, wheat-paste, digital offset, photocopies, etc.; Rocks Off is just going to assume you graphic types know what all those mean - but should date from 2000 or later. Email digital files of your artwork to mwettergreen@gmail.com and/or pfbeck@gmail.com.

In other poster-art news, Uncle Charlie, the Picasso or Goya or Monet (you get the idea... he's good) of local music picture-painters, is hosting another exhibition of his work at 6 p.m. Saturday, November 7 at Sig's Lagoon. Meanwhile, another installment of Carlos Hernandez's "Day of the Dead" series of skeletal interpretations of deceased rock, country and blues figureheads opens Friday, October 30 - known to Rocks Off as "Drive-By Truckers Day" - at Cactus Music.

This Sunday is the final installment (for now) of the weekly "They, Who Sound" free-jazz/experimental/improvisational/underground concert series. TWS curator David Dove (trombone) and Grandfather Child's Lucas Gorham (lap steel, guitar) will be joined by bassist Thomas Helton and drummer Mike Mroz. Doors open at 7 p.m. and music starts at 7:45 p.m. at Avant Garden, 411 Westheimer. Cover is $5.
