Detroit fuzz-punk-psych rockers Human Eye caught our ears as we walked down 8th Street last night, leaving TV On The Radio at Stubb's. First the sound reeled us in, naturally, and then the live show had us planted in front of them for the rest of their 1 a.m. set at Headhunters.
But the best part, other than the heavy screamy jams, was the lead singer, Tim Vulgar searching for a black garbage bag full of pizza on stage. At first we thought he would throw the contents of the sack onto us in the crowd, but instead, he shoved a huge slice in his mouth and continued singing. Needless to say, we want them to play in Houston soon. Your move, Frank's Pizza.
Also, remember this creepy-ass thing?
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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
