Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Houston Kickoff + Arum Rae + Jealous Creatures + Keeton Coffman + March to the Sea + Ruiners + More

Alright, so it’d be putting it lightly to say that the whole FPSF insanity this coming weekend has consumed my life this week & last, but dammit, there’s a whole world of musical things out there these next few days…

Tomorrow: Mark C. Austin’s Print Job Opens Over at Cactus

If you follow any of the music coverage in our fair city, you know Mark C. Austin‘s work, even if you don’t know the man himself. His work’s graced the pages of the {Houston Press}

FPSF 2013 Rundown, Pt. 4: Gogol Bordello + The Octopus Project + Machine Gun Kelly + The Niceguys + Alabama Shakes + Jandek + More

Alright, so I’m going to admit that at this point, four days in, my brain’s pretty much melting from staring at/listening to so many damn bands over the course of this week. But hey, the party can’t stop just because my head hurts, can it? Hell, no…

Quiet Company, A Dead Man On My Back: Shine Honesty Revisited

“You can’t go home again”; that’s the adage, anyway. Apparently nobody told the guys in Austin indie-rock outfit Quiet Company, however, because they’ve done that very thing. Back in 2006, the band released their debut album…

Musician to Musician: Buxton

My, how time flies! Looking through my articles and posts for Space City Rock, I realized that it’s been a long time since I’ve done a Musician to Musician interview. It’s not that I’ve interviewed everyone I’ve wanted to. It’s just that life took over…

FPSF 2013 Rundown, Pt. 3: Kashmere Stage Band + Emily Bell + Japandroids + SOJA + Savoy + Buxton + Social Distortion + UME + A Sea Es + More

Here we are again, folks, with the next installment of our randomly-selected rundowns of the bands and musicians playing Free Press Houston Summer Fest this coming weekend. As you’ve probably heard by now…

Live: Flying Lotus/Thundercat

Fresh off an appearance on the slightly insane but brilliant cartoon Adventure Time, LA’s experimental producer Steven Ellison, aka Flying Lotus, recently graced Houston with his presence at Warehouse Live

FPSF 2013 Rundown, Pt. 2: Mord Fustang + Baroness + John Michael Rouchell + Arctic Monkeys + Devin The Dude + Cat Power + UZOY + More

Yep, as promised, we’re back again with more writeups of the rapidly-approaching (and, as we’ve said before, completely sold-out) Free Press Summer Fest that’ll be happening this Saturday & Sunday (June 1-2) over at Eleanor Tinsley Park

FPSF 2013 Rundown, Pt. 1: Half Moon Run + The Mavericks + TV On The Radio + Of Monsters and Men + Hello Chief + Vintage Trouble + More

Alright, so this feels a little weird. Us SCR folks had fully planned to do the little Free Press Summer Fest writeup thing we’ve done the past few years all along, but it’s always been kinda-sorta with the thought…

The Hidden Cape Foundation: Convention Fundraising at Comicpalooza

Walking through the exhibit hall yesterday, I noticed a man in a Superman cape bouncing quarters off a slab of granite onto a table filled with drinking glasses and plastic cups adorned with superheroes. The man’s name is Ryan Dawson and his company, The Hidden Cape Foundation, is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families […]

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Sword + A Creeper’s Birthday + Left Of The Dial + Bazile + AThousandColours + Uncaged Festival + More

Well into Saturday, May 25th, now, and there’s quite a bit that’s either happening tonight or already going on — take a look below & then get on out into it. Here goes…

Comicpalooza Update: Scrub Club Records Show Tonight

I was able to make it to the George R Brown last night to get a peek at some of this year’s Comicpalooza offerings. If you follow SCR’s Twitter account, you might have seen some of the pictures I was tweeting…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Soundgarden + The Black Angels + Black Pistol Fire + Second Lovers + Paris Falls + Left Of The Dial + The Ancient Gods + More

I’ll admit it, I’m having a hard time focusing on shows coming up this weekend, considering that next weekend is Summer Fest, but okay, I’ll admit it — there’s still some really great stuff going on between now & then…

Comicpalooza 2013 Preview: Something For Everybody

The program schedule for Comicpalooza has me all a-twitter with excitement. This weekend, Friday, May 24th, through Sunday, May 26th, the George R. Brown will be the site of Comicpalooza…

Right Down to the Wire: Houston Press Music Award Nominations Close Tonight!

Yeah, yeah — I know I’ve been extremely remiss (again) in posting about this year’s nominations for the Houston Press Music Awards, to the point that, um, the deadline to submit your nominations is today…

The Milk Carton Kids, The Ash & Clay

I discovered The Milk Carton Kids in early 2012. As each year begins, I commence to researching the acts playing the SXSW festival coming up in March. One of my resources is a website called Operation Every Band, a blog written by a team of people…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Face to Face + This Year’s Tiger + Space City Revue + Born Liars (Rev’d!) + Brewfest + King’s X + More

sigh. This, folks, is what happens when House Stuff interferes with Other Really Important Stuff You Needed To Do Today (“Today,” in this instance, being Saturday, May 18th). The whole freaking day got away from me, despite my best efforts/intentions, and now it’s pretty damn late…

Born Liars, Show Some Couth

Ah, the Born Liars. No matter what else is going on in life, I can always, always, always count on these four guys to bring the raw, sharp-edged, snarling/spitting garage-rock/punk, and to do it well. And just like always, on Show Some Couth Jimmy Sanchez…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Riot Grrrl Dance Party + The Wrong Ones + Allen Stone + Indie! Or Die! + Roxy Roca + Grady Gaines + More

Hey, all — I know it’s been somewhat quiet over here in recent days; sorry about that, but yours truly’s been pretty well snowed-under by multiple things, and blog postings tend to fall by the wayside. sigh

TTNG, 13.0.0.0.0

There’s a strangely insectile feel to Oxford-bred trio TTNG’s newest album, 13.0.0.0.0, I think in part because the band (singer/guitarist Henry Tremain, guitarist Tim Collis, and drummer Chris Collis) never really stop moving

Yr. Weekend, Addendum Time: Valens, Tigerparty, & More at White Swan

Dangit, I knew I was going to do that; somehow I completely missed out on posting about a cool-ass show going on tonight (Fri., May 10th, that is). The White Swan‘s got a very cool lineup tonight, especially with electro-pop (I think?) crew Tigerparty and excellent, excellent newcomers Valens, who have a new album out […]

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Philip Glass’s Dracula + Titus Andronicus + The Lotus Effect + Tom Keifer + D.R.I. + More

Running behind due to family illnesses & whatnot, I’m afraid; it’s been a rough week yet again, and the past 24 hours has been pretty much the worst part…sigh. There’s still plenty going on, but before we get into it, I’m sad to report that tonight’s Art Car Ball over at The Orange Show has been cancelled…

David Ramirez, The Rooster

That voice right there, that’s the voice of a man who’s crawled through hell and up out the other side, and now he’s standing back on his own two feet, albeit a little unsteadily. With Apologies, Austin’s David Ramirez chronicled his recovery…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Houston Roxx Fest + the last place you look + The Devil Makes Three + El Desmadre + More

Hey, all — moving slow today, after a long, long, looooong day spent solo with our youngest, taking him to see snakes at the Zoo, taking him on the METRORail for the first time, up into downtown, wandering around inside the Exxopolis “luminarium” with him, letting him jump around in the water park at Discovery Green

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: New York City Queens + A Sea Es + Brand New Hearts + P-Funk + Summer Street Fest + Craig Kinsey + More

Busy, busy day coming up, on into Saturday, May 3rd — there’s a ton going on, so much that I’m not going to have time to really talk about even most of it. But hell, let’s hit the highlights; here’s what I’m thinking looks & sounds cool…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Alkaline Trio + Sing Your Life Showcase + Shabazz Palaces (MP3!) + Shellee Coley (MP3!) + More

It’s that time again — Friday, and this time it’s Friday, May 3rd, with a decent-sized pile of good stuff going on. Not as much as some recent Fridays, it’s true, but hey, quality counts…

Free Press Summer Fest Schedule, Now Online (and Yes, Fun to Play With, Too)

Got word today that yes, the official-schmofficial schedule for this year’s Free Press Summer Fest is now online…
