If you haven't been to the Riff House concerts (a series of shows organized in the living room of Tim Slusher's house), let the living room come to you. This Friday, the series celebrate two years by uniting Riff House veterans (Chris Taylor Band, the Rosedale Highs, the Canvas Waiting, Mobley, and Little Brave) with a well-established local band new to the series, Pop Pistol. The event, hosted by singer-songwriter Melissa Ludwig (who's also played RH), starts at 8 p.m. at Sam's Burger Joint (all ages, $10-$15, 330 E Grayson).

Also on Friday, "The Double-Duty Show" at Moses Rose's Hideout (10 p.m., 518 E Houston) presents two all-female bands and four bands total sharing band members for the night. The bands include new, all-female Langton Drive (lesbian/queer indie rock), all-female SandoZ (melodic funk rock), the new two-piece Bean or Bear (featuring SandoZ guitarist Lauren Bergman and Accord of Dissonance drummer Roy Hernández), and AOD themselves. Hernández is actually doing triple duty by collaborating with SandoZ for the night; Dahzi plays drums for both SandoZ and Langton Drive. This will be Langton Drive and Bean or Bear's first show ever. No cover, 21 and up.

On the heels of Artslam 6 and the No Idea Festival, here's another show mixing art and music: Progressive Media Productions (a new nonprofit artist-run production company founded by artists Laura Varela, Fadela Castro, and Adriana M J García) is hosting two art/music events on Saturday, February 11. Things start with a launch party/fundraiser for a Youth Mobile Lab Project at 6 p.m. at Gallista Art Gallery (free, 1913 S Flores) featuring music by DJ Chacho, Alyson Alonzo, and Jeff Escamilla, and art by Supher Tejas, Cien Laws, Joe López, Alan Calvo, Ray the Tatooedboy, Deborah Kuetzpalin Vásquez, José Cosme, Jane Madrigal, Soup, Daniel Saldaña, Adriana M J García, and others. The "LOVE"-themed after party starts at 10 p.m. at the Korova ($5, 107 E Martin; red attire encouraged) and will feature music by Chisme, Henry and the Invisibles, Karim Zomar, and Beta Player. If only all nonprofits launched with strong lineups like these.
