WE’RE TALKING LIVE MUSIC HERE! BELOW ARE SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FOR GREAT HOUSTON AREA VENUES SMALL IN SIZE BUT BIG ON THE MUSIC SCENE. CHECK OUT THE WEBSITES FOR Fitzgerald’s A veritable mainstay in The Heights, Fitzgerald’s has been holding court at the NW corner of White Oak and Studewood since 1977! Sara Fitzgerald kept the two wood floors of the original Polish center (Fitz has both upper and lower level stages) rocking after the Polish moved on, and now the Free Press Summer Fest guys are keeping the history running. Fitz specializes in many of the acts that Summer Fest is now known for, spanning most genres except country. Shows are all ages but the bar program has some solid drinks, so bring your ID if you are of age. No food but plenty of local restaurants nearby. Upcoming shows include Minus the Bear, Bad Suns, Toro y Moi and many, many more. www.fitzlivemusic.com MORE UPCOMING SHOWS AND REMEMBER TO KEEP THOSE CELL PHONES IN YOUR POCKET!!! e Cook By Mik Warehouse Live EaDo’s premiere concert venue since it opened, Warehouse Live has filled the warehouse with great live music. Like Fitz, Warehouse spans most genres and offers a little something for everyone. Warehouse also has a second stage (dubbed “the Studio”) for the smaller, more intimate shows. Ample with bars, 24 L O C A L | may 15
