THE RUNDOWN – 10.17.2016 – 10.23.2016

Rundown

Ooh wee we are just in the thick of October, aren’t we? Blood moon’s come, flannel’s out, Halloween is a week away, and the shows keep comin’. Wednesday gives you a slew of options between the obvious choice Lumpy and the Dumpers and the jam-off between Bob Weir at the Ryman and Phish at Ascend. Trouble In Mind recording artists OMNI play Queen Ave on Thursday while my dad’s favorite bluegrass dude (and truly a ripper in his own right) Larry Sparks is at Station Inn. Then it’s a weekend of album release shows with Savoy Motel celebrating their debut LP at a warehouse in Wedgewood Houston on Friday and Faux Ferocious celebrating their debut LP at Fond Object on Saturday. Fall delivers yet again on its tradition of new releases and that’s a-ok with us.
