Tonight: Room 101 at River Oaks Theater

Update: This show was cancelled, but Room 101 plays Fitzgerald's Feb. 13.

No sooner than Rocks Off's good friend (and hella photographer) Rosa Guerrero rhapsodized about the River Oaks Theater's occasional (but always loud) music shows comes word that Houston/Chicago noisemaker Room 101 has a gig there tonight. Expect to hear the two new songs the enigmatic one-man band - probably the best-prepared musician for a chemical attack ever - just posted to his MySpace page, "New Rome" and "122 Hours of Fear" (a cover of first-wave California punks the Screamers), as well as selections from his 7-inch EP "Contemporary Programming," which Room 101 says is being pressed now and should be ready in about a month. Earplugs highly recommended. - Chris Gray

8 p.m. tonight at the River Oaks Theater, 2009 W. Gray, 713-866-8881.
