Aren't ready to end the weekend just yet? Or really wanting to begin the week on a very toasted, mellow note? Every Monday night, Boondocks (1417 Westheimer) hosts a concert series upstairs. The best part? It's free.
Tonight, check out the Wild Moccasins. These Houston art kids do some very kind jangly folk-pop, with the cutest male/female vocals heard around here for awhile. If you find yourself humming those Kimya Dawson songs from the Juno soundtrack, then this is where you wanna creep tonight. Also on the bill is Sabra Laval.
We suggest staking out a spot early. At the bar, Joseph and Cotter are known to have a mighty heavy pour, so you won't be disappointed. At this point, Boondocks should just start making direct withdrawals from my paycheck. Insurance be damned. – Craig Hlavaty
(Ed. Note: a review of tonight’s show will be posted on Houstoned Rocks tomorrow.)
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.
