Block 7 Looking for Local Bands for Compilation

Block 7 is a wine bar set to open in the next few weeks near Shepherd and Washington that is looking for a shot of good ol' Houston noise to break it in.

The owners of Block 7 have an ear for local music, and they're seeking Houston bands to be featured a compilation album that they'll play during their grand opening, slated for the end of this month, and distribute to guests. B7 is asking for at least two mp3 files, a brief bio, and any other pertinent details to be sent to [email protected]. The deadline for consideration is Monday, June 8.

The wine bar is also fully equipped with a sound system and there are also very tentative plans to build an outdoor stage. With that, Houston would have yet another venue where local cats can get their sound out to the masses. B7 is located on an 8,000-square-foot plot, with ample room for bigger shows down the line if an outer stage is constructed. For now, intimate sets will be the norm inside B7.
