THE VALERY TRAILS - IN-STORE PERFORMANCE

After almost a decade of operation as a transcontinental project, with members separated by an ocean, guitarist/vocalist Andrew Bower returned from Houston, Texas to his hometown of Brisbane Australia in 2020, joining his brother Sean Bower (bass) and Dan McNaulty (drums).

After navigating some pandemic-related complications, this increased togetherness resulted in The Valery Trails' fourth album, The Sky is Blue, released in August 2022. The album was warmly received on both sides of the Pacific, charting on US specialty and college radio and with strong support from Australian community radio.

A headline tour of Australia’s east coast also served to raise the band’s profile in Australia, and the band are enjoying the chance to play more shows, as live performances were a rare occasion while the previous geographic arrangements were in place.

**POSTPONED** THE MATHLETES - IN-STORE PERFORMANCE

The Mathletes were an indie rock band active in Houston from 2001 to 2011. Part solo project, part supergroup, they were led by lo-fi pioneer Joe Mathlete and featured a large rotating cast of musicians, most of whom played in other (often bigger) Houston bands. Their chaotic, high-energy shows developed a loyal following in Houston, and their dozens of home-recorded albums attracted fans internationally. After a decade-plus away from the stage, The Mathletes are reuniting for a show at White Oak Music Hall on Friday January 26 in support of three separate career-spanning anthologies: a fourteen song LP, a four disc CD box set, and a book-length zine featuring an oral history of the band as related by over a dozen Mathletes. Popular local band Swimwear Department opens. Tickets are $10. White Oak Music Hall is located at 2915 N. Main. The show will be fun.

JANE WOE - IN-STORE PERFORMANCE

Jane Woe is a group of Houston musicians that capture scenes and emotions through the bend of a guitar string, through a crescendo of a rolling cymbal, and most of all through words that paint a picture. Jane Woe is a woman sitting on her front porch with a shotgun, waiting for her lover to get home. Jane Woe is when singing the blues isn’t enough and howling them is the only way. Jane Woe is a repetitive drum beat with 2 ladies harmonizing and hypnotizing a room. Some describe the music as boot gaze, or dreamy sugary country music with a haunting vibe. One fan described, “if David Lynch did the music for Urban Cowboy.” I say they are ballads of love and murder, dripping with salty Texas sweat, and wrapped in a silk bandana.

Jane Woe is Scott Ayers, who’s pedal steel weaves and bleeds it’s way through each song like the gravy on top. Scott has had a long and varied musical career, and is best known as the guitarist and producer of the legendary, Pain Teens.

Jane Woe is cat wrangler, Carol Sandin Cooley on bass and vocals. She offers her musical talents to many bands like, Sad Pygmy, Rotten Piece, Black Leather Jesus, Cryptographers, and Illicit Relationship.

Jane Woe is the intuitive drumming of Kirk Suddreath. His diverse style allows him to play for several bands and organizations including, Two Star Symphony, The Catastrophic Theater, and The Houston Ballet.

Jane Woe is Erin Dance, the singer songwriter that plucks guitar strings and heart strings, that leave you with the feeling you have been there before. With tongue in cheek lyrics inside country arrangements, “you’ve got a humid mess of heartache that is tuneful and manages to find humor and hope in the middle of it.”

Jane Woe is Texas music.

THE HATES - IN-STORE PERFORMANCE

The Hates has been called "Houston's first and last punk band", and with over 45 years of blood, sweat, and that familiar mohawk, those words may be more true than their author ever knew. From his very first live show in 1978, Christian Kidd (aka, Christian Arnheiter, Christian Anarchy, Christian Oppression, and The Scooter Guy) has steered this legendary band through decades of disco, pop, new wave, hair bands, hip-hop, crossover country, and tribute bands to keep punk rock alive.

In a time when many early eighties groups are getting back together to play reunion shows, The Hates have the distinction of being the oldest continuously performing unsigned punk band in Texas. And despite the love/hate relationship the local music scene has had with punk rock over the years, The Hates will always be proud to call the Bayou City their home.

I gravitated towards country music more through California — Buck Owens, Gram Parsons, and the Byrds,” she told Rolling Stone earlier this year. “That was my foray into that. I went into RCA thinking that Dave and I were going to make more of an Americana-sounding record, but I had demoed all of the songs on my phone, and they had almost a Nineties, Tracy Chapman, R&B kind of vibe. He wanted to stay true to my demos. So we didn’t really hammer into the Americana stuff. It happened naturally.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thingstodoinhouston #livemusic #livemusichouston #freeconcerttickets #houstonmusic #jennylewis #jennydianelewis

Verses bring the dynamics down and build into a chorus that can easily be imagined as a mosh pit sing-along, with lyrics like, “I got nightmares up and down my walls/ I got some things that I should say/ Walk like a zombie up and down these halls/ Sleep like the undead, like the undead/ At the end of the day.”⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thingstodoinhouston #livemusic #livemusichouston #freeconcerttickets #houstonmusic #alkalinetrio #worriersmusic #drugchurch
