Project Grimm Annual Xmas Blowout with Clouded and Slow Future

Dear fan(s), our annual Xmas Blowout is coming up on December 23rd at Rudz. These yearly shows are always great fun, and we always enjoy new and old friend(s) alike. Expect some pretty cool special guests, as well as some fun stuff from us. Take the opportunity to escape your cloying, smothering family, and come participate in the cathartic power of guitar rock, in the emotionally unstable way that only PG can conjure. As this is our third and final show of the year, we've probably got about ten or so shows left in us before we escape this scatalogical whirlwind and enter the beyond.  We weren't cool when we started, we were less cool as the months turned into years, and we are now so far from cool we don't even know what that word means anymore. No matter, Houston has plenty of leather-vested geriatric-deniers available to satiate your need to feign immortality. Join us, won't you? Pagan holidays are utterly primed for rock!


Project Grimm (Houston, TX)

A decidedly less experimental group than its most direct predecessor, the Mike Gunn, Project Grimm was formed in 1995 by Gunn frontman and guitarist John Cramer to satisfy his urges to be a bit more straightforward in his approach to guitar rock. Interested in looking to build a band around this new direction, Cramer called local drummer Rick Costello (of Houston band Bleachbath) who volunteered his services straight away. Drew Calhoun joined on bass, and former Schlong Weasel (University of Houston "branch") member Jim Otterson rounded out the lineup as second guitarist. Their first show, on July 3, 1995 was followed by recording sessions that would result in their first album, Lying Down out on Linus Pauling Quartet's Ramon Medina (also a former Schlong Weasel-er) Worship Guitars label in 1996. The pace of recording and releasing would slow down considerably for the band, which wouldn't quite get around to releasing the follow-up until 2003. In the meantime, Bo Morris would take over on drums for the kicked out Rick Costello, and Cramer would work with former Mike Gunn colleague Scott Grimm on his Dunlavy project. July 2003 would see the release of Project Grimm's second album, Huge Beings (released on Camera Obscura's Australian sister label Camera Lucida), but it would also see the band split -- on the very day of the album's release. Leader John Cramer would later appear as a solo artist working under the name the Powers of Light & Darkness, and played sporadic shows around Houston.   --Chris M. True,




Slow Future (Houston, TX)

SLOW FUTURE is a rock band from Houston, Texas.  The band originated in 2014 as a new beginning for guitarists/vocalists Joel Hoyle and Mike Starbuck, and drummer Koree Smith, who played in a previous band together.  Bassist Phil Jackson ran into Smith at a party and asked to join the trio’s new venture.  The quartet has created an instinctive blend of punk-inspired rock.  Their debut single, “Girl Gets Down”, echoes the grit of garage rock and the melancholic aggressiveness of ‘80s and ‘90s underground rock.  It’s all about making meaningful connections through real emotion translated into raw music. This group of self-styled, small town outcasts is releasing its debut E.P. in April 2016, and will be playing throughout the Southern region to support the release.  Let the music tell you the rest of the story!



Clouded (Houston, TX)
Reunion show

Yeesh. I really got behind on updating these damn things... I wish I could say that I know what happened to one-time local indie-rock heroes Clouded, but I'm afraid that I'm in the dark -- all I can tell for sure is that they're definitely not playing any shows anymore, which is a shame. I'm a stubborn bastard -- meaning that I hate recanting my previous opinions. I do like to think I'm not entirely unchangeable, though, so here goes: Clouded were pretty damn cool. I wasdisappointed by some of their live shows, but they also had some really good ones, too, and their self-titled CD was verygood. Anyway, theyed play catchy, anthemic, full-of-melodies, alternative-type rock, with a lot of '70s arena-rock influences alongside (a la the Smashing Pumpkins, as an example). They sometimes engaged in a bit of guitar wankery, but they were pretty solid overall, with some interesting songs. They put out a tape, the Jessica EP (which I've never heard), and the aforementioned CD on 76.2% Records (now Ojet Records), and like I said, it kicks ass (keep listening after the last song listed, by the way). I'd heard that they were going into the studio to record a new EP for 76.2% at some point, but nothing ever materialized, as far as I know. - Space City Rock 5/2/2003
