Local Music Monday

We started Local Music Monday back up for locals to share videos and photos of local bands and musicians. We were doing it weekly but participation kind of died down after a few weeks. Many have asked about resuming it, and I am happy to announce we are resuming it Monday, December 3rd, 2018. We’ll try doing it the first Monday of every month. We were previously doing it on Facebook, but we are going to start adding it all on the website monthly as well. Stay tuned!

Here were some of the previous ones (in reverse chronological order). There are many genres on here, so scroll around until you find one you like. You might find something new today:


I’d commented: Thanks for all the posts and feel free to keep them coming! I’m checking them out now (as I encourage all of you to as well, you might find something new you like!). I’m going to go ahead and add links to the individual bands where I can find them in the comments below each one so those who are interested in liking and following any of them can go to their pages! 🙂
(And those who think there is not a good talent pool of local artists in Houston have surely not heard every local musician here. Keep your ears open – you might just hear something you like 😉 #MusicMonday on #AlternativeHouston  We hear new artists every time!
