Tonight at AvantGarden, come celebrate the release of the second live compilation from KTRU (91.7 FM). Admission is free and the album only costs $5 but they are limited and going very fast. Doggebi, The Literary Greats and Ben from listenlisten will be on hand for live sets, with DJs from KTRU's Post-Punk and Mutant Hardcore Flower Hour shows filling in the in-betweens. KTRU Live Volume II includes tracks from B L A C K I E, Fat Tony, Ghost Mountain, Sad Gorilla, Robert Ellis, Secret Prostitutes, sIngs, The Literary Greats, The Sour Notes and a few others.
Event organizer Matthew Wettergreen also told us that the artist behind the disc's packaging will be on hand to draw bunnies on people's CDs for a small donation. So you will be supporting local music and the fine arts if you show up.
We were elated to see Fat Tony on this list, and not just because we enjoy his musics. It meant that we would have a reason to post this sweet pic of Mr. Obi riding a baby goat like the boss that he is.
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.
