Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Omotai + Buildings + Fiskadoro + Art Institute + Mynabirds + Deep Time (MP3s!) + Mixed Media + More

sigh. Totally blew most of last weekend — being on the road between here & San Antonio sometimes makes the show-rundown thing problematic, as does being exhausted from dealing with two munchkins who are less like children & more like perpetual-motion machines…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: False Idols VU Tribute + Balaclavas + Plants and Animals + Peloton + SHFL Stage Benefit + More

Whoa. Tonight, Saturday, May 26th, is a full, full night of cool stuff, so much so that I’m having a hard time picking a favorite show. Damn. Here’s what I’m liking…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Literary Greats + Finnegan + Quiet Company + Balaclavas + Jealous Creatures + Wheel Workers + More

First night of a busy, busy weekend, y’all — tonight, Friday, January 13th, is packed full of awesomely cool things to do/hear/see. And yes, I know I’m running late; sorry ’bout that, folks, but that’s what spending a day/evening with an unwell toddler does to you…

Tomorrow: Balaclavas Prepares to Hit the Road (at Walter’s)

Okay — first off, ignore the bottom of that there flyer, mmmmkay? Since it was originally scheduled, the {Balaclavas} tour kickoff show has shifted location not once but twice. At the start, the show was supposed to be at The Mink

Tonight: Weird Party + Wicked Poseur + Cave @ Fitz

Quick one, right here — there’s a pretty damn neat show going on tonight (Wed., December 7th) up at Fitzgerald’s, with badasses {Weird Party}

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Balaclavas + Buxton + Mando Saenz + Weedeater + Robert Ellis + More

Hey, all — it is shaping up to be one busy, busy Friday (October 7th, to be precise). First off, though, a bit of news… In case you hadn’t heard already Adele has cancelled all of her U.S. tour dates…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Balaclavas + Venomous Maximus + The Hunger + Faceplant + More

Sunday, September 4th, heading on into Labor Day, and there’re a few cool-ass shows still going on, despite everybody heading out of town for the three-day weekend & all that…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Iceage + Balaclavas + The Energy + Invincible Czars + Illegal Wiretaps + More

Damn, there’s a lot going on this weekend, and yep, a lot of that pile’s tonight, Friday, July 15th. Houstonians, you’ve got some hard choices ahead of you for the evening (and the weekend as a whole), no lie…


Okay, so I’ve needed to add Balaclavas to this here list for a long time now. Beyond the perennial culprits that are my general laziness and slowness, there’re a couple of outside factors to blame…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Balaclavas + American Fangs + Featherface + RIVERS + Robbie Fulks + Cancellations + More

Coming into Day 1 of the weekend, Friday, May 13th, and there’s a decent-sized pile of good stuff going on, I have to say. Of course, it may also be that I’m just cheery today after finally getting to visit Bernie’s Burger Bus

Yr. Weekend: Indian Jewelry + Balaclavas + football, etc. + Benefit for Joey + Adelaine + Chuck Berry + More

Gotta make it a quick little rundown, yet again, but there’s a ton of good stuff happening this evening (Fri., March 4th) — you’ve pretty much got your pick, seriously…

Time to Recognize: Your Name [HERE] Media Wants to Put Your Name In Lights

Houston has always, always had awesome, amazing bands. Screw the naysayers; it’s the honest-to-God truth. Even in the lean times, even when 99.9% of this city thought “Houston music” was pretty much ZZ Top, Destiny’s Child, and nothing else…

Late Notice: Atari Teenage Riot, Interviewed/Tonight(!)

Sadly, I may not make it out to the show after all — grumble-grumble day job grumble-grumble — but I didn’t want to let it slip completely by that yep, tonight’s the much-anticipated Atari Teenage Riot show up at the new Groundhall

Dull Knife

Dull Knife is hands-down one of the neatest labels in town; I can’t claim to be a huge fan of every band whose music they release, but they do some really good stuff (all vinyl, naturally). The first {Hearts of Animals} 7″ was/is pretty excellent…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Holy Fuck + Indian Jewelry + Balaclavas + Binarium Sound Series + Lower Dens + More

Late, late, late, yeah, yeah, yeah. Sorry, had to dig a hole (well, expand an existing hole, actually) in the back yard and then couldn’t really move for a few hours. Anyway, it’s the end of the weekend, and a storm appears to be currently hammering parts of the city…

Update: Black Friday Shows (PB&J! Balaclavas! Stadium! Hellcats!) + “This Christmas” + New Reviews

Hey, all — hope everybody out there had a good Turkey Day and didn’t get too festively plump in the process… I know we already did one update this week, but we’ve got a few more new reviews up, including one for new holiday-ish movie This Christmas, one of the new (and surprisingly good) odds-and-ends […]
