Weekend Listening: Liberty and Justice - Six Two (ft. Fat Tony)

Now that we have shared we will be leaving Texas soon, I'm starting to think about all the things I will miss. At the top of that list is the northwest corner of Telephone Rd. and Fourcade St. It's hard to overstate my affection for all that rests on this corner of Houston's eastside. On this corner is a great cafĂ© for gaming enthusiasts and others. Above, on the second floor is the studio where I met Steven, my Houstonian tattoo artist—who made mementos for meaningful moments of my time here; documenting the bad (injustice, hurricanes and pandemics) as well the good (my marriage and the Great Commission bell).

Also on this corner sits East End Barber where I got to know owner and creative Ryan Taylor. Ryan is a spiritual force to be reckoned with; creating businesses and music, building community through both. I met Ryan when one of his bands, Liberty and Justice played with The Adolescents here in Houston a few years ago. I've loved their stuff ever since and their latest, Pressure is a tour de force. Here's one of my favorite tracks off the album featuring local rap legend, Fat Tony:

So, now you know what I'll be listening to this weekend. What will you be listening to?

Support musicians! A great way to do this is on Bandcamp. Take a look at what I'm discovering there. You can find all my weekend listening tracks on the playlists I've created on Spotify and YouTube.
