Here’s my plan for a Houston outing

March 10, 2004

I went to to see if any cool bands are in town March 18-20.

Turns out there’s a joint called The Continental Club that offers not one but two intriguing possibilities: Mojo Nixon on Thursday night, or Southern Culture on the Skids on Friday and Saturday nights. I’m leaning toward the latter.

The club is less than 2 miles from the hotel, which makes it safe cabbing distance.

Please chime in if you’d like to have a Prints the Chaff get-together at this place or another one. If you know anybody in Houston, maybe you can get them to give us a ride. Or something.

    Well, Mojo says he’s hanging it up after this tour, so this might be your last chance to see him. I saw him way back (’89 or so, with Skid Roper) and he was great. That being said, SCOTS is pretty much all the kickass white trash rockabillyroll action you could want and then some. I’d try to catch both of ’em.

    I saw Nixon in 1988 or so and wasn’t moved. Have long wanted to see SCOTS. If the stars align (I can’t make promises now), I’d be happy to see either act in Houston.
    BTW, I’ll be driving to Houston in my Honda Civic, so I or someone who knows how to drive a stick could use it to take a few folks to the club if that seems wiser than getting a cab.

    I’m thinking one night of carousing and loud music would be enough for me … I see Mojo as a novelty act whereas SCOTS seems more, well, genuine.
    Maybe we’ll just make our minds when the time comes.
