Meet Mike Hutson! Our new writer and representative of the Houston area.
Greetings and salutations. My name is Mike and I live in the suburbs
of Houston, Tx. The gang at OMBg asked me to write a little something
on the webpage and assist in promoting the local music scene in my
area. I happily agreed. I have been hitting shows in the city here for
about 18 years now, Jesus that makes me old. I have had the pleasure
of seeing fantastic H town bands from Spunk to Sprawl to 30footfall
and Fuska and tons in between. I have played in bands, and love this
city and its eclectic scene.
I am a proud dad and self proclaimed geek. Lover of Star Wars and all
things horror. I was a writer long ago, then I forgot how. I am a
mediocre musician. I met the OMBG crew a little over a year ago and
have proudly watched them grow to a respectable drunken podcast. I
have been around since the beginning of their fantastic journey, and
was actually sitting at the table when they spawned the Old Man Bitter
Those are my creds.
I plan on welcoming the OMBG crew into my home in a few weeks for one
of their weekly broadcasts. We will be discussing and promoting the
When We Ruled H Town Showcase # 2 on October 14th at Fitzgeralds in
Houston. Some great bands are reuniting for this gig, and to promote
the incredible When We Ruled H-Town documentary. This doc is near and
dear to me. It showcases the incredible talent that ruled the Houston
music scene in the 1990s. Over the next few weeks I will plan on
putting down in writing my thoughts on the Houston scene then and now,
and try to explain why it should matter.
I wanna thank the OMBG crew for allowing me to write this thing. They
are super cool down to earth honest peeps. They LOVE music and LOVE
promoting Texas underground music to everyone that will listen, and
even to those who wont. I dont expect you to love everything we do,
but I hope you will give it a listen.
Support Local Music.
