Are you sick of being responsible? Does it annoy you to have to follow rules or be pro-social? Do you like basements? Well, if you are a goofy, degenerate weirdo who doesn't quite fit in anywhere else, you might consider our city's hardcore/punk shows. Your underlying anger problems can be brought out to their fullest potential (in a positive way). These are my recommendations for great local and national bands that don't play five-minute (marathon!) songs or remind you about drink specials. General rule of thumb: If you have five bucks and can show up by 9 p.m., then it's go time in the pit. One, two, fuck you!

Dress Code, Paranoid Chant @ Ask A Punk January 8 9 p.m. / $5

Word must have spread about the Sentenced show last week, because Texas just keeps coming back for more facetime with drunken Midwest mongoloids. Houston's Dress Code and Paranoid Chant are on the prowl and ready to give us a heaping helping of that one-two stomp brand of hardcore that would make any skinhead smoke dope. If you like 86 Mentality and/or buying eye patches to cover up a slam-based disfigurement, this might be the perfect reason to get a babysitter.
