Transcript FOUR FOUR' s lead guitarist, Mike Haseman, plays a few riffs between sets at Sharkeys on Nasa Road. Most local bands, like Texas traveling FOUR, were very exited to have people download free MP3's of their music off the internet because it gave the public even more recognition of their work and new albums. -Dixie Ann Dalton WONVERLANV Carolyn Wonderland, falls into a soothing melody of blues while jamming with her band, Carolyn Wonderland and the Imperial Monkeys. The band was considered one of Houston's most popular artists sending them on tours and, since their beginning in 1992, winning them countless awards. -Dixie Ann Dalton Rockin' Out LOCAL BANVS PROV/VE CHEAP ENTERTAINMENT The Houston music scene found new life as the demand for hometown acts grew. With success of bands like Fenix TX and Destiny's Child, musicians and vocalists saw promise in the Houston scene, and continued to experiment and form new groups. All genres of music benefited from the expansion as many different types of music were created from these new acts. Students enjoyed such genres as heavy metal, hardcore, funk, alternative, jazz, blues and rap. "What I really like about local concerts is that you don't have to buy tickets months in advance. If you are bored some night, and really want something to do, there is always some thing happening around here," said freshman university studies major Vimal Patel. With the demand for local music on the rise, venues in and around the Houston area found themselves booking their weekends with more and more hometown acts. Fitzgerald's had catered to local music since 1977 and was the birthplace for many local groups. One show at Fitzgerald's, the Fall Core Fest, featured over 10 Houston area hard rock acts. Many local groups performed regularly at any of these venues and many more in and around the Houston area. Feasting off this growth, such local bands as Eyeagainst, Leaf, Faceplant, and I- 45 continued to expand their presence in the Houston scene. Students found that going to shows was a great source of entertainment. "Local shows, they are cool, cheap, and the bands rock," said sophomore health major Mark Sartain. -Kenny Powell Venues for bands included such hotspots as The Engine Room, The Sidecar Pub, Cardi's, Mary Jane's, The Java Jazz Coffeehouse, and Fitzgerald's. ONEMANBANV Harlem Slim, famous for his traditional Delta blues, plays at the Big Easy almost every Tuesday night. Venues like the Big Easy not only hosted regulars like Harlem Slim and UH's own law graduate Rick Lee, but they also hosted open mic nights for anyone to come join in and play their own blues. -Dixie Ann Dalton /wm^fwrnsmmm
