Friday Night: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart At Fitzgerald's

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart Fitzgerald's April 9, 2011

Houston's Friday show circuit was enough to make any music fan's head spin: While droves were at Toyota Center taking in the artistic freak show that is Lady Gaga, the city's alternative crowd was crammed into Fitzgerald's for one of two buzzworthy shows: Warpaint (upstairs) and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart (downstairs).

As if the live-music gods thought they dealt us a too-lucky hand, Pains' scheduled opener, Twin Shadow (an act we were equally, if not more, eager to see), canceled at the last minute, citing health problems. But the second openers, Houston's Watermarks, picked up the slack and set the stage for New York's indie darlings.
