Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Tontons + The Suffers + Lee Fields + The Sour Notes + Glass The Sky + Deep Cuts + End Of The World Fest + Molotov + Noisefest + More

Hey, all — it’s Friday, December 19th, and yes, we’re heading on into another busy, busy weekend as the holidays ramp up. There’s a decent-sized pile of excellent stuff going on; unfortunately, I don’t have time to talk about ‘em all, so I’ll have to pick a small handful. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Knights of the Fire Kingdom + Grizzly + Brand New Hearts + Young Mammals + Young Girls + Mustard Plug + Dan Potthast + Ian Moore + More

Getting a late start on this, unfortunately; it’s Saturday, December 13th, and it’s been a Christmas-y kind of day with the fam, so I’ve been offline for most of it… Which sucks, because there is a shit-ton of good stuff happening tonight. It’s not too late, though, so here’s a quick rundown of what I think looks/sounds cool…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Red Fang + In Flames + Opeth + The Brunson Theater + Fake Believe + Two Star Symphony + Before There Was Rosalyn + these days + More

Hey, y’all — it’s the weekend once again, with today being Friday, December 12th and all, and while the list of shows tonight isn’t massive (look at tomorrow’s list for that), it’s still pretty damn impressive. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Funeral Horse + Linus Pauling Quartet + The Ex-Optimists + Jealous Creatures + Asli Omar + East End Trillwave + Ma & God + More

Alright, folks — late again, I’m afraid, due to spending the day doing yet more Christmas-y-type stuff like getting & decorating a Christmas tree, but I didn’t want to let tonight (Saturday, December 6th) slip completely by… Like with yesterday, it’s a pretty massive damn list, but here’s a few brief highlights…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Death Threat + Will to Live + Creepers + Children of Pop + Jamestown Revival + Nikki Lane + Sebastian Bach + Theremin Fest + D.R.I. + More

Well, damn. There is a massive pile of good-sounding things happening tonight, so many that I’m only going to be able to scratch the surface, I’m afraid. And I’m late getting started, besides, after helping my dear wife set up for the ornament-exchange party from which I’ve been exiled… Here’s a quick blast of what I think sound like the coolest shows of the pile…

Tonight: Blackalicious + Knights of the Fire Kingdom + We Were Wolves + Theremin Festival + Shellee Coley + Mid Main First Thursday + More

Dang. Alright, I know I’ve been MIA of late; there’s a lot of reasons behind that absence, but I won’t go into ‘em right now. Instead, I’d rather just say that I’m attempting to catch up right now and hope to do better, and then point at some truly, truly cool stuff that’s happening tonight, Thursday, December 4th. I couldn’t let this stuff slip past, y’all. Here we go…

Tonight: The 1975 at Bayou Music Center

Okay, so I know there’re actually several very, very cool shows happening tonight, but the absolute top of my list is happening at Bayou Music Center tonight, where ridiculously great Manchester band The 1975 will be rolling through town. Others may disagree, but for my money, the band’s self-titled debut was one of the best damn things I heard all of last year…

Celebrate with A Sundae Drive at Their CD Release, Tonight

Dammit, dammit, dammit. Alright, y’all, here’s the sad truth: I had fully and completely planned on reviewing The Senseless & The Sound, the long-awaited full-length by awesome H-town shoegazers {A Sundae Drive}…and yet, it didn’t happen. sigh

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Swingin’ Dicks + Funeral Horse + Miami Dolphins + Cop Warmth + Jon Patrick + Adam Bricks + More

Yours truly is still recovering from hopping up and down and screaming like a teenager last night at Fitz for We Were Promised Jetpacks, but if you’ve got a tougher constitution than my old ass, hey, there’s still stuff to do tonight, Friday, November 14th

Tonight: We Were Promised Jetpacks & The Twilight Sad Up at Fitz

And here, folks, is where I will be tonight (specifically, Thursday, November 13th). I’ve been waiting very literally for years now to see/hear Scottish post-punk rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks, and when I saw their name appear on the list of upcoming shows over at Fitzgerald’s, I very nearly went through the damn ceiling in excitement…

Tonight: B L A C K I E, Cities Aviv, & Fat Tony at Notsuoh (for Free!)

Hey, all — short notice show time… This one kinda crept up on me, so I only found out about it today, but I wanted to make a mention of it, at least, since it’s damn cool. Bassman Pep of AR*V is putting this on over at the ever-entertaining bastion of Downtown strangeness, Notsuoh

Saturday: For the Community 8 Takes Over North Downtown

As I noted earlier, there’s a ridiculously large pile of cool stuff happening this weekend, especially tomorrow, Saturday, November 8th, but the biggest by far is the latest installment of For the Community

Yr. (Late) Weekend, Pt. 1: Rocket From The Crypt + Modest Mouse + Tinariwen + The Lotus Effect (Rev’d!) + The Octopus Project + Bastille + More

Gah. Sorry for the lateness, folks — there’s a lot going on tonight (that’d be Friday, November 7th), but yours truly is only now able to take a break from Munchkin Duty, so I’ll have to keep it quick. Here goes…

Coming Up: First Annual Scorpio Party Awesomeness, This Saturday

Alright, people — this coming weekend is going be insane, frankly, and I wanted to point a finger at a particularly cool show that’s going on, so it doesn’t get swallowed up in the giant pile of other Cool Things to Do… See, tomorrow, Saturday, November 8th, happens to be the day o’ birth of Ian Hlavacek, lead guitarist for badass indie-rock band {Jealous Creatures} (whom I love dearly)…

Yr. Week, Pt. 3: Gogol Bordello + Something Fierce + Shovels & Rope + By the End of Tonight + Handguns + More

Oh, wow. There is so freaking much going on tonight, Friday, October 31st, that I can scarcely wrap my damn brain around it, seriously. Unfortunately, seeing as I’ve got to man the door against the horde of undersized candy-grabbers soon to descend upon our unsuspecting neighborhood, I’m only going to be able to cover a few of ‘em; here’s what I like best…

Yr. Week, Pt. 2: K.Flay + Night Riots + The Suffers + Mac Lethal + J. Roddy Walston & The Business + Melvins + Le Butcherettes + More

Alright, people — it’s now Thursday, October 30th, and while I’m a bit under the gun right at this moment, I can’t let the cool-ass stuff going on tonight slip through my fingers; and yeah, there’s a fair bit of it this evening. Here goes…

Yr. Week, Pt. 1: LVL UP + Two Knights + football, etc. + Jay Farrar + Chase Hamblin + BRONCHO + Low Litas + More

Normally, I wouldn’t be posting on a measly Wednesday — nothing against the day, specifically, but just because of time constraints and Life In General — but y’know, I’m attempting to be a little more timely about these things, dammit, and just because a show doesn’t happen on Friday or Saturday doesn’t mean it’s not good, right?…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Linus Pauling Quartet + Something Wicked + The Ghost Storys + PUP + Houston Makerspace Benefit + More

Late, late, late, I know — had a day spent chasing the munchkins around nearly non-stop and am only now able to catch a quick breath. If you make it quick, though (and I make this quick), there’s still some very cool stuff happening tonight, Saturday, October 25th. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Tontons + Us. + PUJOL + Mike Doughty + Brand New Hearts + Project Grimm + Ex-Optimists + More

Alright, getting this up late, but there’s still plenty of good stuff going on tonight, Friday, October 24th; here’s a quick rundown of the stuff that I think’s particularly cool…

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…
