Houston Music Is More Than Just Wallpaper

The block of music-related businesses at 3700 Main known as the Island - Continental Club, Sig's Lagoon, Big Top, etc. - will soon have some new neighbors. The Island's owners are currently remodeling the building due north of the Continental, a former wallpaper store, into a coffee shop and poster gallery, clothing/jewelry boutique and maybe a wine bar. (Rocks Off forgets.) At the moment, though, the exterior is an eye-catching mural of notable names in Houston music throughout the years, as painted by some talented local youth. Rocks Off took some shots of the mural on his way to work Thursday morning. Check it out the next time you're in the neighborhood.
