More Local Music News Than Open Drummer Jobs

Magnolia City Mixtape might have taken the week off in order to cover SXSW last week, but Houston's music scene kept right on rolling. That means that we've got not one, but two full weeks of news wrapped up in this installment.

For our soundtrack this week, we've a brand-new album from Buxton collaborator Haley Barnes. It posted just hours ago, and if these bright tunes don't bring at least one smile across that face, well, you probably lack a soul.

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let's look at some upcoming shows. The big deal this week is tonight's Devo show at Warehouse Live, with goofy Austin noisemakers The Octopus Project opening the evening.

Tonight, MCM's high school chum David Ramirez makes a stop at The Mink. Some music rag called Paste has been streaming Ramirez's latest EP, Strangetown, so we're not the only one's thinking it deserves a listen.
