Thunderado's Paul Beebe (center) and friends at the Continental, Christmas 2007
The Small Sounds is another local project Beebe participates in, and the band has a somewhat higher profile than Thunderado due to regular gigging at Rudyard's and other local venues. The sound is a sparse mixture of pop, psychedelia and wispy alternative country, which makes them fit for a wide range of stages. Debut CD The Small Sounds is available now. - William Michael Smith
9 p.m. tonight at the Continental Club, 3700 Main, 713-529-9899.

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.
