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…

Don’t Give Up.

Heard some sad, sad news via the Houston music grapevine (i.e., Facebook) today, and now I feel compelled to at least try to say something, in my own fumbling way. Bear with me, if you could… Back in May, at the supremely fun Madness on Main Street music festival, I was sitting and watching {Sand Dollar Swing} play their set at the patio of The Pachinko Hut. The duo segued into a gentle, bluesy waltz and encouraged people to dance, so a handful of folks did; most danced with other people, but one brave soul…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Nick Greer and the G’s + Giant Battle Monster + Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires + Swans + Will Play For Food + More

Damn, it’s late, but damn, there’s still a crap-ton of good-sounding stuff going on this Saturday, June 28th, if you’re not already out and about; I’m gonna try to keep it brief. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Phlegmatics + Valens + Darwin’s Finches + Hear You Me + Dustin Prinz + Yetlanezi + Dokken + More

Alright, y’all — here we are again, attempting to do our happy-little Yr. Weekend writeups; hopefully this weekend my laptop won’t decide to die on me (glad it was recoverable, at least). Anyway, there’s plenty of great stuff going on, starting tonight, Friday, June 27th. Away we go…

Technical Difficulties, (Hopefully) Now Resolved…

Hey, folks — thanks to the keen attention of two SCR readers/commenters, we learned of a fairly massive technical issue with the Website, one that’s been going on, apparently, since April. Argh.

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Los Skarnales (20th Anniversary!) + H-Town Beat Down + Resistance is Fertile + Springboard South + DevilDriver + More

Late, late, late, I know, but hey, better that than never, right? Sorry for the quiet recently; I feel almost like I’ve had to decompress and refocus somewhat after FPSF, so I’ve been staying away from things musical…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Houston Beer Fest + The Energy + Young Mammals + Etcetera + Keeton Coffman + Saint Arnold 20th Anniversary + More

On into Saturday now, June 7th, and there’s a pretty damn large pile of stuff going on, large enough that yours truly can’t cover all of it. I’ll hit as many as I can, though; here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Tontons Makeup Show + The Suspects + Ume + The Courtneys + Houston Hardcore Cover Show + Winger + More

Man. I honestly feel like I’ve spent most of this week recuperating from FPSF 2014 — when I wasn’t at the Day Job or doing jury duty, at least — just trying to regain my sanity and reconnect with the world beyond mud, music, and masses of sweaty, stoned/drunk people…

FPSF 2014 Rundown, Pt. 4: Lord Huron + Destruction Unit + CHVRCHES + Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros + tUnE-yArDs + Jack White + More

Okay, y’all — after a week of randomly-selected previews (see here, here, and here, plus interviews with {Venomous Maximus} and {New York City Queens} here and here (and there’s a more to come on that front), we’re nearly there…

FPSF 2014 Rundown, Pt. 3: The Chain Gang of 1974 + The Kills + Wild Moccasins + J. Roddy Walston & The Business + Wu-Tang Clan + More

Yes, yes, yes. We’re on Part 3 of our rundown series (here’s Part 2 and Part 1) for this year’s Free Press Summer Festival

FPSF 2014 Rundown, Pt. 2: Wildcat! Wildcat! + Los Skarnales + Cage the Elephant + Welcome to Houston + Classixx + Vampire Weekend + More

Howdy, all — back again with Part 2 of this year’s previews/rundowns/whatevers for Free Press Summer Festival, which will be exploding this coming weekend, Sat., May 31st, and Sun., June 1st, in the sweaty, muddy, noise-filled bowl formerly known as Eleanor Tinsley Park (i.e., just west of the big pointy parts of Downtown)…

FPSF 2014 Rundown, Pt. 1: The Orwells + Lizzo + Washed Out + White Sea + Ishi + Poolside + Eagle Claw + More

Yes, friends, it’s time. Well, almost time. This year’s Free Press Summer Festival is approaching fast, a mere handful of days away, and yeah, passes are running out — don’t be stuck like last year, when the whole damn thing sold out, right? I haven’t seen word yet that there are no more passes available, but odds are pretty good it’ll happen, seriously…

This Afternoon: The Caroline Sessions Rise Again (v.5.3!), for Music Therapy Center of Houston

Yes, the Caroline Collective may be dead and gone — long may she wave — but The Caroline Sessions ride again today, Sunday, May 25th. Earlier this year, organizer Tom Paynter resurrected the eponymous music series that used to be hosted at the co-working space, and that’s a very cool thing…

Yr. (Laaate) Weekend, Pt. 3: Bad Veins + Ian Moore + Kenyon White + Paul Pelc + More

Gah. Sorry, folks, for being so dang late tonight — I was out at Johnette Napolitano Thursday, then The Winery Dogs (in Clear Lake) last night, then spent the bulk of today roaming the halls at Comicpalooza, so tonight’s writeup kinda fell by the wayside…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Winery Dogs + Red Fang + American Sharks + Little Hurricane + Oil Boom + Journey + Steve Miller Band + More

Yep, here we are — it’s now Friday, May 23rd, and while tonight’s not as busy-full with cool shows to see/hear as a lot of Fridays, there’s still a respectable pile of excellent things going on. Here goes…

A Few Thoughts on Concrete Blonde, iPads, and Entertainment vs. Artistry

Earlier tonight, I was up at Warehouse Live, watching and listening to Johnette Napolitano, quasi-iconic singer/guitarist for Concrete Blonde. And yeah, she sounded great…

Yr. (Early) Weekend, Pt. 1: Johnette Napolitano + Quiet Company + Finnegan + Robert Ellis + From Beyond + Eagulls + More

Well, holy crap. I just happened to glance at ye olde calendar for tonight, Thursday, May 22nd, and realized that there’s a ton of things going on, way more than I’d thought there would be. I’m running short on time, but trust me, there’s pretty much something for everybody happening this evening…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: B.E. Godfrey + EELS + Dos + Houston Ink Society Grand Opening + Adam & the Ancient Gods + Katy Cajun Invasion + More

On into Saturday now, May 17th, and there’s still a ton of stuff going on, so much I can barely get a hold of all of it; going to have to pick and choose a bit for tonight. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Jimmy Eat World + Fire Moth (Rev’d!) + Keeton Coffman + PAWS + Slim Thug + More

Hey, all — kind of scrambling to get some things done this week, so this weekend’s rundown of shows is likely to be a little on the light side (yeah, like it hasn’t lately anyway? sigh). There’s still a ton of stuff going on, though; here’s a very late list of what looks cool for tonight, Friday, May 16th

Dinner with Dos, Tonight

Dangit, this one crept up on me, so I’m posting about it a wee bit late, I’m afraid… There’s a very cool-sounding event going on tonight (Friday, May 16th) called Dinner with Dos, which is essentially what it says: dinner, chatting, and hanging-out with all-bass duo Dos, possibly better known (to some, anyway) separately as California punk/post-punk legends Mike Watt (The Minutement, fIREHOSE, J Mascis and the Fog, The Stooges) and Kira Roessler (Black Flag)…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Toadies + Supersuckers + Art Car Ball + Institute + Back To Back + Loretta Lynn + Nathan Quick + More

Yeah, so I’ve been a wee bit preoccupied this week, but dammit, shows are still happening, even tonight — Friday, May 9th, to be exact — so I’m going to try to point to the good ones, at the very least. Here we go…

Madness on Main Street Rundown, Pt. 3: Electric Attitude + Cosmic Bug Loaf + Glass the Sky + Antiques + The Docs + Sphynx + Satellite D’Homme + The Wandering Bufaleros

Alright, folks — back again with installment #3 of the previews (see installments #1 and #2 over here and here) for the rapidly-approaching Madness on Main Street Music Fest, coming up this Saturday, May 9th over on the Mid-Main strip. Get your advance tickets now, BTW; I’m told they’re running out fast…

Madness on Main Street Rundown, Pt. 2: Children of Pop + Whiite Walls + Devil Killing Moth + Tom Lynch + Sand Dollar Swing + Muddy Belle

And here we are, friends, back with the second installment of previews for this coming Saturday‘s Madness on Main Street Music Fest, which — as previously noted — promises to be a badass, laidback night of music along the Mid-Main strip that contains The Continental Club

Madness on Main Street, This Saturday (Rundown, Pt. 1): Nathan Quick + LaTasha Lee and the Black Ties + dUNE.TX + Keeton Coffman + Deep Cuts

Now, just because there’s lots of blathering going on about FPSF, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing else awesome and festival-y coming up. In fact, I’ve been horribly, ridiculously remiss ’til now by not mentioning…

FPSF 2014 Schedule and App Now Live (Plus, Some Cancellations…)

Yes, yes, yes, yes. The kind folks who run the Free Press Summer Festival popped up today, less than a month before this year’s festival kicks off (Saturday, May 31st, & Sunday, June 1st), to release two very, very awesome things: the official schedule for the festival and the mobile app for the festival…
