Houston Live Music Clubs - The Axiom
The Axiom: 2524 McKinney Houston, TX 77003-3630 Phone: (713) 522-8443 Check out future shows and listings at the IBP/Axiom web site @ infernalbridegroom.com. The Axiom still houses live music, but it also serves as a theater venue as well for Infernal Bridegroom Productions. You can find out any info about both at the web site. IBP/Axiom is open on a show by show basis, so be sure to check the calendar as to not make a wasted trip.
Infernal Bridegroom Productions is a non-profit experimental theater group. They were founded in 1993 in Houston Texas and are a great venue for unconventional art of all types. Before 1993 the Axiom was a punk rock club and true to their musical roots the Axiom still has rock and punk shows a few times a week. When they aren't providing a nice venue for small live performances they host artists like Beckett, Shepard, Brecht, and Shawn. You might see anything from a short film to a play to a fashion show. With only 99 seats these shows are small and intimate, attracting a loyal following in the counterculture scene.
Located in the warehouse district the Axiom is a bit out of the way but that adds to it's charm. Keep an eye out for live oak street as your crossover. Shows usually go from 10pm-2am and dress is casual.
Houston Live is a free resource for local and touring bands to help them find great places to play in the Houston area. It is a impartial review and we receive no money for this service. We also refuse to accept advertising money from the clubs we review so that we may call it like we see it. All reviews are based on unannounced visits to the clubs in question. We have set for ourselves the lofty goal of creating a local music community in the Houston area to allow great bands who originate here to stay here and further their music career. To further this goal we must have great live music clubs to support these local artists.
