Saturday, March 19: Houston Jones
It’s a familiar story: a group of hot young musicians get together, slam out a brilliant album and then begin a long creative slide as their talents and creative energies wane over the years. For Bay Area quintet Houston Jones, this process has worked in reverse. A group of road-tested musicians came together in their middle years, found a collective songwriting muse, and forged a unique and energetic chemistry.
