Let The Bass Drop: Surviving FPSF 2013, Day One

If there’s anything I’ve learned in all the years I’ve spent doing critical writing, both in college and after, it’s that you can make anything have a theme. Not that everything actually has a theme, mind you, but rather that if you read…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: New York City Queens + A Sea Es + Brand New Hearts + P-Funk + Summer Street Fest + Craig Kinsey + More

Busy, busy day coming up, on into Saturday, May 3rd — there’s a ton going on, so much that I’m not going to have time to really talk about even most of it. But hell, let’s hit the highlights; here’s what I’m thinking looks & sounds cool…

Live: Mills-McCoin’s Rock and Roll Circus

I’ve been seeing John Mills-McCoin around at Houston shows for years now. I finally introduced myself to him at Mark C. Austin‘s Houston Invasion shindig at SXSW; anyone he meets is an instant friend. There are a handful of Houstonians that I see more than anyone else at shows I attend…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Mills-McCoin’s Circus + Kina Grannis + Scott H. Biram + SPC Anniversary + Spring Fandango + More

On to Saturday, now, April 14th, and if my goddamn HTML editor (thanks so fucking much, HyperEdit) will quit freaking crashing on me every 20 minutes, this’ll hopefully be an actual timely little mid-weekend writeup-type thing…

2011 HPMA Showcase Schedule Now Online

In case you hadn’t already seen it, yesterday Craig Hlavaty of the {Houston Press} posted the official (albeit somewhat tentative, apparently) schedule for this year’s Houston Press Music Awards Showcase

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Shonen Knife + Jealous Creatures + Hilary Sloan + The Toasters + Vandaveer (MP3!) + More

Alright, y’all, I’m just going to say it: this weekend’s just nuts. Too, too much to do, and that’s just music-wise, not even thinking about all the non-musical Halloween-y stuff that’s going on (which, having two midgets of trick-or-treat age…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Dharmageddon + Bexar City Bastards (Rev’d!) + Niceguys(?) + Mantis + DJ Craig H + More

Running behind again, sadly, which sucks, because there’s one hell of a show going on tonight (Friday, August 12th) up at Fitzgerald’s

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: the last place you look + Elaine Greer + Jon Dee Graham + Finnegan + Black Wine + Venue/Show News + More

Holy crap, y’all. Busy, busy, busy weekend coming up, seriously, starting tonight, Friday, June 24th (well, it actually started last night, really, but I’m afraid I neglected to post about those shows, sadly; the {football, etc.} show sounded pretty badass…)…

Dance Down the Rain: Surviving Summerfest 2011, Day Two

Damn. First off, yes, I do realize it’s been two freaking weeks since the end of this year’s Free Press Summerfest, and a week-and-a-half since the first installment

A Sweet Hot Hell: Surviving Summerfest 2011, Day One

After only the first couple of hours of being at this year’s Free Press Summerfest, I was feeling really freaking old. There was a time when I could pull off an all-day festival in the blistering heat of summer…

Also Tonight: Reprogram/Trills the Season Bash + The Dead Revolt + Rivers

If neither {The Manichean}‘s remix EP release show nor the Unsilent Night jambox-caroling thing sound good to you this evening…

Local(-ish) Press Stuff to Check Out

There’s been some good, good stuff popping up in the past few days on our local H-town music-media/etc. friend sites, and I wanted to take a sec to just point a wobbly finger at it and say, “Go! Read! Now!” (assuming you haven’t already, that is)…

Rogue Comedy with Craig, Tonight

Okay, this one’s so freaky-funny a concept that I can’t help but mention it, at least briefly… Tonight (Thurs., June 24th) the Avant Garden plays host to the Rogue Improv show (troupe?), which is doing this wacky improv thing they call “The Armando Show,”

A Writer — Er, Ten Writers — Walk Into a Bar…

Yours truly spent some quality time last night with his peers in the H-town music-writing community last night, thanks to Caroline Collective-izer and all-round cool guy Matthew Wettergreen, who cajoled and coerced nearly a dozen writer-type people into showing up at Cecil’s and hanging out for a few hours. And it was a hell of […]
