Tonight: Awesome Color at the Mink

"Eyes of Light"

Damn. Wasn't that something? Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore indirectly turned me on to Awesome Color, a terrifying trio from the wilds of northern Michigan. AC is one of the artists on Moore's Universal-distributed label, Ecstatic Peace, and released the self-explanatory LP Electric Aborigines earlier this year. Seriously, the band's sound is much easier to describe than Sonic Youth's, and maybe anyone else's: Imagine the Stooges took way, way too much brown acid. That's it. Ready to have your face melted? - Chris Gray

With Paris Falls and Guitars, 9 p.m. tonight at the Mink's Backroom, 3718 Main, 713-522-9985. Tickets available at pegstar.net.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

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.
