As home to the weekly Thursday night party Popscene, the venue is the go-to place for off the moment music.

We’re happy to share with Texas, but since our loyalty is to the hometown team, here we offer a rundown of the showcase’s highlights, with contributions from Melissa Goldstein, Aaron Davidson and Nicole Beckley.

Full disclosure: I am currently readying to leave for SXSW in Austin, where I plan to report back on music news relating to places near (like Talking House Records’ SFxSXSW showcase) and far. So I’ll be keeping this dispatch short.
