The Return of The Hates with Goat, Lizzie Boredom, and Room 101
Event on 2018-02-03 22:00:00
Yes, we can now confirm it. As first reported by The Chronicle's eagle eyed Adrew Dansby, The Hates are returning!
"The sign pictured above was easy enough to miss, being nondescript and DIY befitting one of the city's most beloved bands. But there it was just the same at the corner of Farnham and the Southwest Freeway feeder road. The Hates are returning. Apparently Feb. 3 at Rudyard's. The show will be a welcome return for the punk band, especially after a trying year. Hates frontman Christian Kidd had shoulder surgery in January, which is a heavy lift for a guitarist under any circumstances. Then later this year he was diagnosed with Stage 3 squamous cell carcinoma. I'd missed the announcement last month that his cancer was in remission, which is very good news. And now it appears he'll soon be back to playing short, sharp classic punk rock songs." – Andrew Dansby, Houston Chronicle, Friday, November 24, 2017
The Hates (Houston, TX)
The Hates has been called "Houston's first and last punk band", and with over thirty years of blood, sweat, and that familiar mohawk, those words may be more true than their author ever knew. From his very first live show in 1978, Christian Arnheiter has steered this legendary band through decades of disco, pop, new wave, hair bands, hip-hop, crossover country, and now the newest fad of tribute bands to keep punk rock alive.
In a time when many early eighties groups are getting back together to play reunion shows, the Hates have the distinction of being the oldest continuously performing unsigned punk band. And despite the love/hate relationship the local music scene has had with punk rock over the years, the Bayou City will always be their home.
