Transcript SPB PRESENTS: $Ai,LLsT.Ge Okay, here's a riddle: What's green, smells bad, and is around when you need it even less than the boys in blue? Money! What is it that you need to survive even the most esoteric of philosophy classes as well as the most basic core classes? Money! What is necessary to even go out and enjoy yourself? Well, whatever that is, it sure ain't money. Well, not directly. Every Thursday night in the Cougar Den, the Student Program Board's Small Stage Committee sponsored free concerts (funded by our Student Service Fees, granted, but it's the thought that counts, right) from various "quaint local folk" who just happen to own instruments and know how to play them. The acts ranged from the "Band of the Year," Fab Motion (so named in a poll in Houston's al- Kevln Kujawa of Real Genius ternative press) to the hard-edged garage sound of the student band, Real Genius. Other featured acts included XOX, Mullberry Jane (with their now-infamous demand that all nudes be required to pay a $4 cover), the Kick (whose SPB intro quite possibly caused the demand), and the Austin import, Bad Mutha Goose and the Brothers Grimm. Music Fans could pick from the pop-rock funk sound of Goose, the roots rock and creative covers of the Kick, the jazz- influenced psychedelia of the Zealots, or alternative sounds from Hell with the Danny Bonnaducci Soul Explosion. The variety of songs was demonstrated well in just one night, with the Kick, when they managed to play "art" music, original rock tunes (lead singer Jimmy Jones must have the worst love life on the planet), and covers of everything from the Doors to the Clash to Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues" and Carole King's "Seasons in the Son." These songs had to be heard to be truly appreciated. Open to everyone, the shows ended promptly at midnight. They always left the audience hungry to hear more, usually at least the end of any song begun at 11:59, XOX is popular around the city. Although branded heavy metal by some, they say their own particular brand of rock defies description. All photos by Ed Davidson. Putting their hearts and souls into their music, HyTech provided an alternative to the processed, electronic sound of synthesized pop- sometimes even a whole new set. But from 8 to 12, lost in a swirl of Itza Pizza and Spud's suds, we could dance, we could slam, we could stage dive (quite a thrill from a six-inch high platform, let me tell you), or we could even opt for an injury- free evening just listening (if the band couldn't manage to either play you or shame you to your feet onto the dance -- x Jack Mays of the Zealots floor). Whatever happened, though, whoever played, one thing was certain: it was the best something for nothing to be had for miles around. And even if we weren't listening to the future U2 or the Beatles of the '80s, hey, who's complaining — you can't beat the price. — E. Hargis 10 University of Houston Jimmy Jones of the Kick displays the fashion sense of Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Edge and Johnny Cash all rolled into one.
