Texas Takes Over NYC, Today

For our East Coast friends, I figured I’d mention a very, very cool CMJ-related thing going on today (that is, Thursday, October 23rd). Indefatigable photog-turned-promoter Mark C. Austin‘s Convoy Group is among the organizers of the third-ever Texas Takeover CMJ showcase, and damn, it sounds pretty awesome…

Video Time: Brand-New Video Out Now From Glass The Sky (and Jerry Ochoa!)

Some cool news today that I wanted to share/disseminate/etc… After a while spent quietly working away on their forthcoming full-length, excellent indie-rock band {Glass the Sky} have resurfaced, not only with brand-new single “Touch,” but also a video for said brand-new single…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Suspects + The Lotus Effect + Allo Darlin’ + Beartooth + Vanna + Keeton Coffman + Cheetah Chrome + More

sigh. Alright, folks — first off, profuse apologies for dropping the ball completely last weekend. Got wrapped up just about totally in Family Stuff and, well, sometimes the non-Family Stuff loses out, y’know? But hey, we’re back again for this weekend, starting with tonight, Friday, October 17th

Temples Blaze Brightly, Tonight at the HOB

Fellow Space City Rock writer and photographer Jason Smith wanted me to let you know that his favorite new band of 2014 will be playing the Bronze Peacock Room at the House of Blues tonight. They’re a British band called Temples and they play psychedelic rock in the vein of the late 1960s, mixed with a bit of 1990s Britpop…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Quiet Company + Knights of the Fire Kingdom + The Wheel Workers + Lion Among Men + Peace, Love and Rescue + Runner of the Woods + More

Alright, people — here’s the big pile of stuff going on this weekend, pretty much centralized on today, Saturday, October 4th. And holy crap, there’s a lot of ‘em; here’re the ones I like best…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Young Mammals + Only Beast + Southern Backtones + Craig Kinsey + Interpol + Cavern Hymnal + Grisbee + After The Burial + Texas In July + More

Okay, so there’s not a huge list of cool shows going on tonight, Friday, October 3rd, but what’s there is definitely good, and you should get the hell out of the house and enjoy this gorgeous-ass weather while it lasts. Because, let’s face it, it never does, amirite? Anyway, here goes…

Yr. Early Weekend: Buxton + Wild Moccasins + JEFF the Brotherhood + Break Science + The Museum of Carnal Possibilities + More

Yep, I do know what day it is, don’t worry (it’s Thursday, October 2nd, derr). It’s just that since I completely blew last weekend’s writeups, I figured I’d attempt to get a jump on this weekend’s. Hence, a quick glimpse of what’s happening tonight. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Seahaven + Balance and Composure + football, etc. + The Lotus Effect + Caddywhompus + Muhammad Ali + More

Yes, yes, yes. I’ve been skipping a whole lot of Sundays lately, it’s true, but tonight — September 21st — there’s too much stuff going on for me to be able to shrug it off, and a lot of it is damn good. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: A Sundae Drive + Catch Fever + The Suffers + DJ Shadow + Cut Chemist + ’90s Burned Out + More

Alright, y’all — I’m still feeling like hell, but I’m at least vertical now (relatively, anyway), and I didn’t want to not mention the cool things going on this evening, Saturday, September 20th. I may have to keep the blather brief, but here we go, either way…

Right Now, Go Catch Deep Cuts at Cactus (for Free!)

Okay, so I’m guessing not everybody who reads this little blog managed to get out last night to see {Deep Cuts} at their EP release show up at Fitz — heck, I definitely didn’t, myself. If you hurry, though, you’ve got a second chance to catch ‘em this weekend, starting at 3PM over at Cactus Music

Awards to Vote For: Best of Houston 2014 & The 1st Annual Sammy Awards, Deadlines Coming Up Fast

Before I crash out for the night, though, I’d been wanting to post about these for a little while now, and the deadlines are coming up really quickly, so… There’re two different sets of awards you need to go and vote for, right damn now, namely the Houston Press Best of Houston 2014 Awards and The 1st Annual Sammy Awards

Yr. (Abbreviated) Weekend, Pt. 1 (aka Jeremy’s Sick & Can’t Do a Real Rundown Tonight)

Argh. Your Dear Editor, friends and gentlepersons, is currently sick as a dog. I’ve been trying to get a few things online today, even still, but when it comes to the show listings for tonight — Friday, September 19th, that is — I’m afraid I just can’t do much. If you’re not already out & about tonight, here’s where you should go…

Damn, Y’all: Rain and Flooding Washes Untapped Houston Away

Got some bad, bad news this afternoon from Mark C. Austin, one of the folks behind Untapped Houston, the very, very cool music-and-brews festival that we talked about just the other day, and which was scheduled to happen tomorrow, Saturday, September 20th

Coming Up: Untapped Fest Unfolds This Weekend (And Hey, A Giveaway!)

Alright, people — remember just the other day when I talked about Houston’s current bounty of music-type festivals? Well, another’s happening this weekend, and it promises to be pretty spectacular. This is the third (I think?) year of the Houston edition of the Untapped Festival

Yes, Indeed! 2014 Rundown, Pt. 2: Handsomebeast + The Trimms + After Nations + Another Run + Poor Pilate + Lion Among Men + Fake Believe

Yep, here we go again, for a second pile of preview-type things for Yes, Indeed! 2014, which happens tonight — i.e., Saturday, September 13th — all down the Mid-Main area of shops, bars, and restaurants. There’ll be stages at The Continental Club, Shoeshine Charley’s Big Top Lounge (aka The Big Top), The Alley Kat, and the Pachinko Hut, which is basically the back patio of the Continental Club…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Sour Notes + Jealous Creatures + The Wheel Workers + Delta Spirit + Fox & Cats + P.L.X.T.X + Super Friend Opening + More

Had some other stuff on my mind this week (coughYes,Indeed!cough), so I’m running a wee bit behind, um, as usual. But hey, it’s now Friday, September 12th, and there’s some great, great stuff happening very, very shortly. Away we go…

Yes, Indeed! 2014, This Saturday (Rundown, Pt. 1): RIVERS + Keeton Coffman + Belvoir + Megafauna + Ma & God + Sphynx + Sand Dollar Swing + Cassette Tape + A.J. Vincent + England in 1819

This is kind of turning into a weird musical season here in H-town. It may be my imagination, but it seems like there’s a whole crop of new/new-ish music festivals that’ve popped up these past couple of years (since the success of FPSF, maybe?), from Untapped to Something Wicked to No Limits CityFest to Whatever. And y’know what? That’s awesome…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Knights In Satan’s Service + No Limits CityFest + Barbarella Benefit for Autism + Freda Payne + the last place you look + More

Well, if I thought yesterday was busy, I hadn’t yet looked at the pile of stuff going on today, Saturday, September 6th, because yeah, there’s a freaking massive number of good, good things happening. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2(?): House Party Comedy! + Rivers + The Phlegmatics + Burn the Boats + Roxy Roca + Wings of the City Opening + More

Holy crap, people — there are a lot of good shows going on tonight, Friday, September 6th, and sadly, there’s no way in hell I’ll be able to talk about more than a small fraction of ‘em here (especially the EDM stuff). But hey, “some” is better than “none,” right? Right. Before we dive in, though, there’s a non-musical thing happening this evening that I wanted to mention, because it’s bound to be hysterically funny…

Yr. (Early) Weekend, Pt. 1: Mid Main First Thursdays + PartyUp Prince Tribute + Sucré + Lomelda + Adam Bricks + Race to the Moon + More

Hey, people — yeah, I know it’s only Thursday, September 4th, but dangit, there’s stuff going on this evening, and I didn’t want to let it slide completely by. Before I do that, though, I wanted to point a big-ass happy finger over at the {Free Press Houston} for their local show coverage as of late; writer David Garrick does a fine, fine job, and he’s a hell of a lot more timely than yours truly…

Tonight: Black Cobra + Lo-Pan + Omotai + Funeral Horse (New Video!)

Gotta keep it quick, I’m afraid, but I wanted to point to a particularly badass show this week that happens to not be on the weekend, but rather tonight, Wednesday, September 3rd. There’s a full, full slate of stomping, skull-crushing doom(-ish) metal goodness thundering onto the stage tonight at Fitzgerald’s, and honestly, every damn playing is pretty great…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: 30footFALL + The Suspects + Jody Seabody & The Whirls + We Were Wolves + The Wandering Bufaleros + More

Dammit, dammit, dammit. I’m ridiculously late on this again, but in case you’re not already out and about, here’s what’s going on tonight (Saturday, August 30th) that I think sounds cool. Away we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Cashus + Sunrise and Ammunition + Hoofprints + Closet Drama + Golden Cities + The Phlegmatics + Dax Riggs + More

Hey, folks — it’s now (late, sorry) Friday, August 29th, heading into a long (for some, at least) Labor Day weekend, and yes, there’s most certainly cool stuff going on. Granted, there’s not as much as some Friday nights, but what is happening is damn, damn good. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Suspects + Children of Pop + OBN III’s + Bang Bangz + Satellite D’Homme + Joe Pug + Beach Blanket Bingo + More

Late this Saturday, August 23rd, I’m afraid — spent the day doing house stuff with the munchkins — but I didn’t want to miss out on the excellent stuff happening tonight, even if I have to keep it a little brief. Here you go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Rudyard’s 36th Anniversary + BLSHS + Children of Pop + Roger Sellers + MFAH Mixed Media + I Declare War + Oceano + More

It’s kind of an odd Friday, at least for me — we’re moving offices at The Day Job, so I’m at home today while stuff gets transported and rewired and all that. So it feels weirdly like Saturday, especially with the kids not yet back in school. But even still, there’ll be a great big pile of cool shows happening tonight, August 22nd, all over our fair city. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Craig Kinsey Video Premiere + You Ain’t Punk + Soundgarden + MeltFest + Ian McLagan + The Dead Rabbits + More

Gah. Late, I know — sorry about that, folks; Family Time wins out — but I didn’t want to let today, Saturday, August 16th, slip completely past without pointing up a few of the good stuff going on. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: B L A C K I E + The Beans + Guess Genes + The Ones You Loved + Quiet Morning & The Calamity + Seabrook Music Festival + More

Hey, all — yes, here we are once again, making our way into the weekend, starting with tonight, Friday, August 15th. Holy crap; we’re halfway through August already. How in the hell did that happen? Argh… Alright, here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Wanda Jackson + Iva Dawn + Sara Van Buskirk + What Made Milwaukee Famous + A. Sinclair + Young Girls + The Lotus Effect + More

In a wee bit of a rush this evening (Friday, August 8th, for those without calendars), I’m afraid — promised to take Munchkin #1 to see Guardians of the Galaxy tonight, so y’know — but there’s some cool, cool stuff going on, so I’ll try to mention it as quick as I can. Here we go…

Tonight: The Houston Press Music Awards Steal the Show

Yes, yes, yes. Apologies for the quiet these past several days, folks — your humble Editor Guy Jeremy has been off on vacation in Southern California with the fam, seeing more LEGO sculptures than he ever imagined could exist in one place, and frequent writer/photo guy Jason has been computer-less of late due to some very bad technical difficulties. I (Jeremy, that is) am still recuperating somewhat from my sunburn/damaged legs, but nevertheless, tonight, Thursday, August 7th, promises to be pretty dang great…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Jeff Fest + Silver Snakes + Omotai + Clouseaux + The Coathangers + Peter Matthew Bauer + Guess Genes + Sphynx + More

It’s Friday night, people, and as always (well, almost always), there’s plenty of awesome stuff going on in our not-quite-fair city. Here’s what sounds cool to me…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Quiet Company (Does Weezer) + J. Roddy Walston + The New Mercies + Save Nance House + Handguns + More

Running late, as always, but yep, it’s Saturday, July 19th, and just like yesterday, there’s a ton of stuff happening tonight. I’m at home nursing a sore back after foolishly spending all day digging up the front yard, but here’s where you should be…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Second Lovers + Invincible Czars + The Wheel Workers + Ishi + Star Trek + Catch Fever + Hub City Stompers + More

Yes, folks — it’s Friday, July 18th, so once again into the mouth of madness (er, sort of) we go. There’s a lot going on and not much time to talk about it, so here we go…

Tonight: Rock Out for Literacy with Charity Gigs (and Only Beast, A Sundae Drive, Fire Moth, and Brand New Hearts, Too)

For it being a measly Thursday (July 17th, specifically), there is a whole hell of a lot of cool stuff going on — The Crystal Method are at Stereo Live tonight, for one, The Neighbourhood is at Bayou Music Center with White Arrows, and {The Wiggins} and {Deep Cuts} are playing at Walter’s

The HPMAs Are Here! (Kind Of!) Vote Now! Controversy!

Alright, so I’m way behind, naturally, on this, but I wanted to point out to the woefully-clueless who don’t already know that the justly-ballyhooed Houston Press Music Awards are once more upon us…

Helping Out: April 5K Needs to Breathe, and She Needs Us to Help Make It Happen

Argh. Okay, I’m a screwup and didn’t realize this was as time-sensitive as it is…sigh. If you’ve been around the Houston scene at all, odds are that you know, have heard, or have played in a band with April 5K

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Eastern Sea + Wild Moccasins + the last place you look + Change For Kayla + Jealous Creatures + Ian Moore + More

Whoa. There are a whole slew of damn, damn, damn good shows happening tonight, Sat., July 12th, so many that I’m only going to be able to touch on a handful of ‘em right now. Here goes…

Check Out Lotus Effect’s New Video & New Song, Then See ‘Em Live Tonight

Okay, so I owe a big, big apology on this one, bigger than my usual apologies for my usual slacker-ness. Way, way, way back in December of last year, I ran into Dre Giles, vocalist for alt-prog-rock dudes {The Lotus Effect} (and a good friend both of SCR and myself), at the now-annual {the last place you look} Christmas show up at Warehouse Live

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Hearts of Animals + LIMB + Young Mammals + Jeremy Messersmith + Second Lovers + I See Stars + Structures + Black Flag + More

Alright, people — let’s do this, dammit. Tonight (Friday, July 11th, for those somehow not keeping track) kicks off one hell of a weekend of shows, and I’m gonna do my damnedest to not drop the ball this week. sigh. Here we go…

Holy Freaking Whatever Fest, Y’all (Coming August 9th & 10th)

Yeah, yeah; I know, I still need to get my damn writeup online about this year’s awesome FPSF (soon, I swear by all that is good and holy…), but while you’re waiting for that — as I’m sure you all are, with bated breath and everything — there’s been some badass-sounding news this week about another music festival, which will be having its inaugural run August 9th and 10th

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Steve Earle + Square and Compass + Holder + Young Mammals + Cocker Spaniels + Venomous Maximus + More

Starting a bit early this weekend, partly because it’s a holiday tomorrow and partly because there’s actually a ton of stuff happening tonight, Thursday, July 3rd. Seriously, the list is pretty ridiculous for tonight; I’ll hit as much as I can, eh? Oh, but before I do that, I just want to aim a raised-in-approval thumb over at the {Free Press Houston}, where writer David Garrick has been doing a stellar…
