Tonight at Limelight, leave that 9 to 5 up on the wall dance your worries away at Coalescence DJ's Terpsi and Eri. Lori Martinez, aka Terpsi, is also the brains behind the wonderfully selected Club Curations, where Martinez hosts another guest DJ's mix and discusses the tracks and process surrounding a particular set.

Sweet Spirit, Holy Wave - Paper Tiger
TONIGHT, two Austin bands invade the Paper Tiger presented by Brooklyn Brewery: Sweet Spirit and Holy Wave. The nine-piece Sweet Spirit reportedly began as a solo project after the lead singer's previous band, Bobby Jealously, fell apart. Now, everything else is falling into place with Sweet Spirit and her other project A Giant Dog who has been grabbing the attention of the press, festival bookers, etc. More info here.

TONIGHT at 8 p.m. we have MC's The INF, Arkeologist, and Reek Savage as well as producers Jonah Conrad and 40 Hands. Recently Arkeologist and TIMEWHEEL launched an online BeatShop but more on that soon. The lead singer of Octahedron, Elena Lopez, was recently featured on a Jonah Conrad song "Underneath My Skin."
Nina Diaz and The Lost Project
The other week, Nina Diaz was streaming an acoustic solo set on Facebook and it was mesmerizing. I've seen her solo performances before and of course with Girl in A Coma, but that night, something about the DIY nature of the stream was hypnotic and ASMR. On Instagram the local rock celebrity told her followers she planned on performing an INXS cover in honor of Micheal Hutchence's birthday.
The Lost Project members have been busy building San Antonio's Lost Records momentum with a Kill Liberal tour and now a Harvey McLaughlin and The Bottomfeeders 7" album release at Hi-Tones and still find the time to rehearse and perform in Houston and now open for Nina Diaz at Hi-Tones. 502 Bar is gonna be hella packed, so get there early for this one and make sure you get your limited $5 tickets at Do210: http://do210.com/ninadiaz.

Devin The Dude
Stopping by San Antonio after postponing concerts back in Oct, Devin The Dude swings by Alamo City Music Hall presented by Score More Shows.
"Houston crooner with nostalgic rhymes and uncanny lyrics paved the way as one of the pioneers of underground Texas rap being part of Rap-A-Lot records with a tremendous catalog that involves working with greats such as Dr. Dre, Nas, Andre 3000, The Roots, Geto Boys and UGK"
Ska Implosion at Korova
The annual installment of Ska Implosion is back! Presented by Lost Records and Korova, this Saturday night will see a mix of bands playing ska and music influenced by ska. There 's a lot of hazy history behind people's understanding of the ska genre, but did you know ska came before reggae?
