This coming Saturday, Warehouse Live will lay host to the Houston edition of Ford Fiesta Movement’s Battle Of The Bands. Team Houston, which consists of local photographers Mark C. Austin and Amber Roussel, are putting on the event that will hopefully send one lucky band to the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. Starting at 6 pm, the free event will host the likes of Black Queen Speaks, Peekaboo Theory, Robert Ellis & the Boys, The Tontons, Tyagaraja, VerseCity and Wayside Drive. While the event is free, you must RSVP which will get you an electronic ticket that must be printed out and brought with you day of show. Team Houston is encouraging as many people to RSVP to the event, as it will help out the fan vote that will allow them to win the second mission and grand prize which includes the winner of the Battle Of The Bands performing at Bonnaroo as well as two new Ford Fiesta’s, one of which will be donated to Noah’s Kitchen, a non-profit group that provides nourishment and nutritional education to the hungry and homeless. If you can’t be in attendance on Saturday, you can also show your support by sending a quick text message with the phrase “rockstar” to 44144. Standard rates apply.

EOTO @ Bourbon Theatre

EOTO @ Bourbon Theatre 

Ahhhhhh. Another night at Bourbon Theatre. As always, I had arrived about 20 minutes late for the April 20th show in Lincoln, NE. Rushing to get into the venue, I was instantly greeted by a hard hitting performance by the excellent sounds of EOTO with an extremely crowded Bourbon in front of me. As many of you music lovers know, EOTO consists of Michael Travis and Jason Hann of the famed String Cheese Incident. Mixing together several styles of music, while lying heavily on electronic, EOTO offers a much different feel than there days with SCI, yet they attract many mutual fans. Switching up roles from their roots with Cheese, each show is promised to be 0 improvised, making each evening a new experience.

Check out some more pictures from the evening, after the jump.

G. Love & Special Sauce @ George’s

G. Love & Special Sauce

BoT is ever-expanding, and I’d like to welcome Cafe Con Leche, my music-lovin friend B Gutierrez from Northwest Arkansas. She’ll be having musical adventures from that surprisingly well-traveled corner of the state.

It’s been three weeks after the intimate G. Love & Special Sauce show at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, AR on March 31st. But I still find myself singing to the songs they played, and telling everyone that cares to hear how fun and how refreshing that night was.

The set had a bluesy, sexy start with “Blues Music,” and it only got better from there. The crowd swaying in unison, along with G. Love’s torso while he sat owning the vocals, the electric guitar and the harmonica. The next hit, “Garbage Man,” showed the audience just how well he manages all three. But the magic happens when G. Love comes together along band mates Jeffrey Clemens (drums, vocals), Mark Boyce (keyboards), and wild-eye string bass man Timo Shank to form the very special sauce.

The Big Pink @ Warehouse Live

The Big Pink @ Warehouse Live
Another night, another show. This time it was a showcase by British indie electro-rockers The Big Pink at Houston’s Warehouse Live. I hadn’t heard much about the group prior to the show, but with a name like that, how could I pass it up? I made it just in time for the start of their set, and within moments they were filling the packed studio with their wall of rock. They definitely had a good sound, one that at times was a bit too heavy for my tastes, but they were at least really good at what they did. They filled their set with pure energy, jumping about the stage while rocking out. Their hit “Dominos,” which I was persecuted immediately for not knowing by several friends around me, served as the shows climax as well as the set closer. People in the crowd were at their rowdiest during the somewhat anthemic tune, and the energy leaving Warehouse Live was certainly infectious. While they are not a band I’m going to go out of my way to see again, their live show definitely was well worth checking out. With a big set at Coachella this weekend, followed by a nice run of shows throughout the UK and Europe this summer, expect to see bigger things from this burgeoning group of indie-rockers.

Check out a ton of my photos from the show after the jump.
