Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Buxton + Mikey & the Drags + The Tyburn Jig + March to the Sea + Fox & Cats + Pope + More

Another slow-moving Saturday, yes (November 30th, for the calendar-less), and yet another pile of ridiculously-late bands that you really, really ought to try and see anyway. If you aren’t already out and about, well, here’s where you ought to be…

Last Honky-Tonk Standing: Celebrate Blanco’s Last Hurrah, Tomorrow

I was lucky enough to catch the inimitable Miss Leslie today at Cactus, and midway through her set, she mentioned that Blanco’s, probably the longest-running country bar I’m aware of anywhere near the Houston city limits, would be closing its door very, very soon. As in, Sunday, December 1st. Damn. I’ll grant that country music […]

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Lincoln Durham + Lucas Gorham + Hometown Hoedown + Waterparks + Cashus + The Witherees + The Snow Indian + More

Hey, folks — hope everybody’s been having a good Thanksgiving/Hanukkah these past few days… I’ve been doing the family thing, myself, only leaving the house briefly today to catch Miss Leslie at Cactus and to check out Pop Shop Houston over at Silver Street Studios

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Via Colori Festival + CHVRCHES + Lindi Ortega + Brett Detar + Hardcore Matinee + More

On into Sunday, November 24th, now, and I’m trying to get this up a little bit earlier in the day, at least, since there’s some extremely cool stuff going on starting pretty early (and hey, the weather doesn’t look as terrible today). Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Business + The Western Civilization + Red Wanting Blue (MP3s!) + Will Hoge + The Lotus Effect + Artery Final Show + More

Well, it may be late on a rainy/drizzly/nasty Saturday (November 23rd, for those keeping score), but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of cool things happening. Here’s my list…

Color + Sound: Via Colori Rolls Into Downtown, This Weekend

From tomorrow, Saturday, November 23rd, through Sunday, November 24th, downtown Houston will once again play host to one of the coolest, most unique street festivals this city sees out of a fairly big pile of events each year…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Finnegan + Cavern Hymnal + Joe Pug + Sera Cahoone + Phantom Lakes + Punk & Metal Fest + The Rads + More

Yes, folks — it’s that time again, and yes, it’s also already pretty late. All I can say in my defense is that I’ve pretty much lost the past two days completely due to a nasty illness…sigh. Anyway, It’s Friday, November 22nd, and wow, there’s quite a big pile of awesome-looking/-sounding stuff going on…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Jealous Creatures + A Sundae Drive + Race to the Moon + David Ramirez + Swingin’ Utters + Blackmarket Syndicate + More

Gahhhh. Late, late, late, again; sorry, y’all, but I spent the day away from the computer hanging out with family & old friends I haven’t seen in half a decade (at least), so y’know… I’m bummed that I missed out on the Paste Untapped Houston fest downtown today…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Venomous Maximus + Featherface + New York City Queens + The Lotus Effect + Structures + Vildhjarta + More

Alright, y’all — running late-late-late tonight, I’m afraid…sigh. Which sucks, because tonight — Friday, November 15th — sure has a bunch of awesome stuff going on, and it’s not too late to get out for some of it. We’re gonna have to keep it brief, but here we go…

Venomous Maximus, Beg Upon The Light

It feels a little weird to say, but y’know, what I like best about Beg Upon The Light, Houston-bred doom-/dark-metallers Venomous Maximus’s first full-length album, is, um, the slow, quiet stuff. I know, I know — that’s a pretty damn…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Bun B & Houston Symphony + Mike Doughty + The Head and the Heart + Henry Kaiser + Polica + SCENE FEST II + More

Dang. It’s Thursday, November 14th, and despite not technically being “the weekend” just yet, it sure as hell feels like we’re already there. And hey, tonight’s ridiculously-large slate of cool-ass shows going on kind of bears that out, too…

[UPDATED!] Giveaway Time: Paste Untapped Houston, This Saturday

Alright, people — there’re some great, great shows happening this weekend, but the one at the top of the list for Saturday, November 16th absolutely has to be the Paste Untapped Houston mini-festival…

Dessa, Parts of Speech

First things first: yes, Dessa is a member of the ever-awesome Doomtree hip-hop collective out of Minneapolis, but that doesn’t mean she’s a rapper. Actually, scratch that; that doesn’t mean she’s just a rapper. She’s something else entirely…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Tron Sack + Peloton + Bonobo + Flatbush Zombies + OG Ron C + Shlohmo + The Blind Shake + More

Okay, so tonight’s a little odd, in that there is a lot of good-sounding stuff going on, but a lot of it’s stuff that, um, I can’t think of much to say about other than, “hey, it’s good!” So I’ll try to scrape the top, as it were, and mention the ones that I can actually say…

Fox & Cats, This is Your Brain on Love

I’d been wanting to say something on this little site about Fox & Cats for some time now, but while I procrastinated and got wrapped up in other things, the duo (Josh Willems on guitar and vocals and Nicole Wiggington on drums) continued right…

football, etc., Audible

Relationships are difficult things to handle; even the good ones, the ones that are worthwhile, take work and pain and struggle. And I’m not even talking about relationships with spouses or partners or whatever, but any relationship…

Tonight: Two Door Cinema Club + Bad Veins + Milk Carton Kids + Cults + More

Yeah, I realize it’s a mere, lowly Tuesday, of all things (November 5th, to be precise), but damn, looking at the calendar for this evening, my jaw just drops. There is a nice-sized pile of excellent stuff happening this evening; here’s what you should be doing…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Scale the Summit + Young Mammals (7″ Release) + Omotai + The Manichean + The Snow Indian + More

Late, late, late again — sorry, y’all, but Family Time has to take precedence… It’s been (and still is) a gorgeous Saturday, November 2nd, and there’s some excellent stuff happening either right damn now or starting shortly. Here we go with a few of ’em…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Co-Pilot + My Education + Lions of Tsavo + Funeral Horse + He’s My Brother She’s My Sister + Tyagaraja + Lone Star Rally + More

Argh. Even later than usual, I’m afraid — I got swamped earlier in the day and guilted/suckered into playing Lego Batman 2 with the little guy this evening…sorry about the lateness, all. Even still, though, if you hurry, there’s still time get out and about; here’s where you need to be…
