MP3 of the Day: Grandfather Child

Houston's Grandfather Child is an especially aptly named band - it's a bunch of young guys playing music their grandfathers would recognize (and probably tell them to turn down). The quartet of Lucas Gorham, Ryan Chavez, Robert Ellis and Geoffrey Muller swirls vintage honky-tonk, gutbucket blues and trippy '60s rock, making them a grizzlier cousin to other local neo-roots bands such as News on the March (with whom they share a bill at Mango's tonight) and Buxton (that's tomorrow).

But before you head down to Westheimer, get a taste of Grandfather Child right here with

the harrowing, Raconteurs-ish "Waiting for You."

With News on the March, Robert Ellis and the Gills, 8 p.m. at Mango's, 403 Westheimer, 713-522-8903 or www.mangoscafehouston.com.
