Yr. Weekend: Quintron + FPH NYE Cataclysm + CSMDP + The Suspects + Bonanzarama + More

Argh. And now, I’m sick. I’d planned to post about all the festivities going on this weekend, but feeling as shitty as I do, I’m going to have to settle for hitting a handful of the big ones and leaving it at that. Here goes…

2011 Houston Music in Photos

I bought a used Nikon D80 in the summer of 2010 and was instantly discouraged by my photos. It took a lot of reading, looking at others’ photos, adjusting my camera, buying new lenses (most of these are taken with a 35mm f/1.8), and messing around to finally get in a photography groove…

Tonight: Caddywhompus + Sun Hotel + LIMB + Project Grimm

Alright, so I’m still dragging myself out of the lazy-ass, family-stuff, holiday-vacation slump (which is worse than my usual lazy-ass, procrastinate-about-everything slump), but I literally just heard about an awesome, awesome show that’s happening right now…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2/3: Roky Moon & BOLT! + 30footFALL + The Handsomes + More

Okay, yeah, so this is late, late, late; apologies for that, but y’know, the family thing & all that… Even worse, I flat-out skipped yesterday — what can I say? It was Christmas Eve, and as far as I was/am aware, there was only one single measly thing…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Wild Moccasins + The Tontons + Art Institute + The Dead Revolt + More

Dang. I’d originally planned to get a lot more posting & reviewing & whatnot done this week, since I’ve been off the whole damn time, but family stuff’s intervened, like sleepover trips to Surfside or last-of-the-year visits to the Children’s Museum…

Musician to Musician: The Manichean

The Manichean are one of Houston’s bands on the rise. They first got onto my radar a few years ago, when I went and saw them at one of those hodgepodge showcases The Meridian was known for, and their brand of drama-rock was an instant success to me…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: FOLXMAS + Rock the Shelter + Benefit For Jared + More

And now, it’s Sunday, December 18th, and what with some folks (like, erm, me) being off work, there’s still lots of stuff going on. First up, though, I wanted to mention the Anti-Christ Mass XIV show…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Jandek + Caroling at Caroline + El Birthday Metalfest + Jonathan Toubin Benefit + More

On to the next one… Saturday now, December 17th, and while yours truly is currently recovering from a very, very late-night party last night and gearing up for the next, there’s a crap-ton of stuff going on today that is flat-out awesome…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Joe & Alicia Get Married + Haven Benefit + Honky Tonk Blood Brothers + The Illegal Wiretaps + More

Wow. Gonna be a busy weekend, y’all, although tonight (Fri., December 16th) isn’t quite as insane as tomorrow night. Before I go into the big-ass list, just a couple of things I wanted to note…

Pterodactyl, Spills Out

I can’t believe psychedelic noise-rock band Pterodactyl are already on their third release, and I’m only just now giving them a try. The Brooklyn-based trio recently released said third album, Spills Out, in November…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Guilt Party + Dufay Collective + Winds of Plague + More

Getting a little bit more of a jump on things for tonight, Sunday, December 11th, and there’s still some good stuff going on, don’t worry. Here’s what I think looks good…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: MonstrO + Girl In A Coma + Finnegan + Sundress + Texas Massacre + More

Argh. Sorry, y’all — dropped the ball again tonight, I’m afraid. There’s a lot going on tonight, Sat., December 10th, and some of it’s still going on, so get on out…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: the last place you look + mr. Gnome + Scratch Acid + A Sundae Drive + More

sigh. Super-duper-extra late this evening, I’m afraid; it’s been a hell of a day/week, with computer issues on multiple fronts and seemingly every second of the day/night plotted out in advance, so I’m only getting to this now, sadly…

the last place you look Release New Song/Video (and Play a Show Tonight)

I have to say, it has been too damn long since post-emo heroes {the last place you look} released new music — hell, it’s been so long the {Houston Press} apparently thought…

H-Town 2011: The Ultra-Massive List of Everything Released This Year (That We Know About, Anyway)

Holy wow. Seriously? With the specter of 2011 top-ten lists looming not too far off on the horizon, yours truly started putting together a quick list of all the local, H-town-based releases that saw the light of day this year, and, well, it kind of got out of hand…

Tonight: Weird Party + Wicked Poseur + Cave @ Fitz

Quick one, right here — there’s a pretty damn neat show going on tonight (Wed., December 7th) up at Fitzgerald’s, with badasses {Weird Party}

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Red Fang + Ghost Town Electric + Hits from the Hill + The Droids + More

I’ve been letting Sunday slip by these past few weekends, I’ll admit it, but I honestly can’t this week, because there’s some stuff going on tonight (December 4th) that’s just as cool as what’s been on the past couple of days…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Montrose Winter Social + Linus Pauling Quartet + Rachael Yamagata + Adelaine + More

Alrighty, y’all, it’s now Saturday, December 3rd, and it’s time to hold on to your shit, because today/tonight is where it gets a little bit crazy. Before I get to that, though, I wanted to mention a few changes/odd things…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Crooked Fingers + Adelaine (Interviewed!) + Folk Family Revival + Invincible Czars + More

Yes, folks, it’s Friday once again — December 2nd, this time — and there’s some truly, truly good stuff going on at various spots ’round town. Here goes…

By Crom!: Linus Pauling Quartet Emerge Victorious From the Depths of Hell

Hail, mortals! We at SCR are pleased to hear that long-running/utterly badass stoner-rock dudes the {Linus Pauling Quartet} have returned, at long last, from what they say is a two-year hiatus/tour in the wilds of Hell…

Adelaine: Your Heart Is A Weapon

When I stumbled across post-emo rockers Adelaine a year or so ago, the band almost sounded too good to be true, honestly. I mean, c’mon; how could I not like a band that melds melodic-yet-heavy, very emo-influenced guitar rock…

Tonight: The Tontons Tour Kickoff + The Dead Revolt, Interviewed

Quick, quick, quick, y’all. Tonight (Thurs., December 1st) is not only the first show in a while for cool rockers {The Dead Revolt} — whom writer/musician Jason Smith interviewed…

Musician to Musician: The Dead Revolt

The Dead Revolt have quickly evolved into my favorite Houston band. They take cues from so many of my all-time favorite bands — Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Yes, and At The Drive-In, to name a few. And they do it all with just three extremely talented individuals…
