Day for Night 2017 Rundown, Pt. 4: Cardi B + The Jesus Lizard + Kimbra + Tyler Barber + Jamie XX + BOOTS + Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Yep, we’re coming down to the wire, friends — today, Friday, December 15th, is the start of this weekend’s Day for Night festival over at Post HTX, starting with this evening’s Friday Summit and continuing on into two full days of music & art…

Looking Backwards into Bright Lights: Photos from Day for Night 2016, One Year On

Here at SCR, we’re fortunate to have worked with some truly talented photographers over the years, and at the top of that list are Jason Smith and Marshall Forse Walker, both of whom are wonderful guys and both of whom have shot a whole lot of pictures for us…

Day for Night 2017 Preview: Hescher

The relationship between sound and pictures is fascinating to me; it seems counterintuitive to think these two, seemingly disparate sensory pieces would fit together so tightly, would mesh together so well. And yet, they do…

Day for Night 2017 Rundown, Pt. 3: True American + Shabazz Palaces + N N O A + Demdike Stare + of Montreal + Princess Nokia + James Blake + Faten Kanaan + Lil B

Annnnnd here we are again, y’all. It’s time for Round Three of our preview/rundown things for this year’s Day for Night, which is this coming Friday-Sunday, December 15th-17th at what used to be the old Downtown Post Office but is now the art/performance space Post HTX. The weekend promises to be packed full of all types of music — trending towards the odd, quirky, or experimental, mind you…

Day for Night 2017 Rundown, Pt. 2: Nina Kraviz + Pussy Riot + B L A C K I E + Narcons + Andy Stott + Pretty Lights + Perfume Genius + St. Vincent + XLX

Howdy, all — we’re back again with Round Two of our annual-ish bunch of randomly-chosen previews for Day for Night, Houston’s quirkiest music/art/technology/whatever festival, which is nearly upon us…

Day for Night 2017 Rundown, Pt. 1: Earl Sweatshirt + Solange + Bjarki + Collin Hedrick + Cashmere Cat + En Vogue + Kona FM + Acid Jeep + Rezz

Yes, yes, yes. Day for Night 2017 is right around the corner, just one solitary week away — it kicks off with a Summit session of talks & whatnot this Friday, December 15th, and then the music, art, and all the rest happens on Saturday, December 16th, and Sunday, December 17th, the whole deal unfolding over at Post HTX downtown…

Day for Night, Coming Up Fast: A Cool Discount Just For You + Set Times Now Live

Argh. Been fighting a nasty cold, y’all, and desperately hoping I kick it before the big day, so I’ve been slipping a bit on talking about the rapidly-approaching Day for Night festival, which happens just over a week from now, Dec. 15-17, at Post HTX

Last Chance to Get a Day for Night Discount & Help Planned Parenthood, Today (Plus Awesome Videoage)

You might recall that we posted a little while back that the good people behind Day for Night, Houston’s coolest music-and-other-stuff festival…

Day for Night Peeks Over the Horizon: Two Cool Pieces of DFN-Related News (+ Stupid Online Controversy!)

As mentioned a little while back, this year’s edition of Day for Night — which yours truly was lucky enough to check out last year, and which made me kick myself for not going the first year of the festival, as well…

Good Things Coming: Day for Night 2017 Lineup & Tickets, Just Released

It’s about goddamn time we got some good news, y’all. Half this city’s still ripping out its floors and walls and replacing every thing they own, schools and libraries are closed or relocated or damaged beyond repair, businesses are shut down until further notices, big, fun music festivals and conventions are rescheduling or just plain canceling, and every time it rains, we all cringe like a dog that’s been kicked…

Day for Night 2016 Rundown, Pt. 3: Time for Some Light (aka A Brief Look at the Visual Side of DFN)

I’m not an art guy. I tried to be, back when I was a kid, but it turned out I was pretty mediocre at it, so it fell by the wayside. And in terms of speaking about art, I’m largely clueless — I feel like I just don’t have the vocabulary for that, in a lot of ways…

Day for Night 2016 Rundown, Pt. 2: Wild Moccasins + Matmos + Daughters + Arca + Chelsea Wolfe + Liars + SOPHIE + S U R V I V E + DJ Windows 98 + Squarepusher

Hey, folks — back again with Part 2 of SCR‘s little rundown/preview things of as many randomly-selected musicians and bands performing this weekend —Saturday, December 17th & Sunday, December 18th — at Day for Night as we can cram in in the short time we’ve got left…

Day for Night Throws Some Badass Food into the Mix

Okay, so we’re hard at work on our whole set of previews/rundowns for Day for Night, which starts up tonight, Friday, December 16th, with its VIP-only kick-off party and runs through Saturday & Sunday, December 17th & 18th, but we couldn’t let this slip completely by…

Day for Night 2016 Rundown, Pt. 1: Lower Dens + Clams Casino + From Beyond + Jerk + MNYNMS + Vacation Eyes + Tobacco + RZA feat. Stone Mecca + Oneohtrix Point Never

Alright, people — Day for Night is very, very nearly upon us, with only a day or two until it explodes into new venue Post HTX (aka the former Barbara Jordan Post Office in downtown Houston). And I’ll admit to having some mixed feelings about it; on the one hand, I’m psyched…

The Future Is Coming: Get Yourself Ready for Day for Night

Oh, man. I got a bit wrapped up in the countdown to Yes, Indeed! 2016 last week, so I let this one slip a bit, and that means that unless you’ve been sailing a raft across the ocean for seven or eight days now — or, alternately, hate music and/or joy, in which case I don’t have a clue how you’re reading this — you know that the organizers of Day for Night, FPSF‘s quasi-sister festival in the winter months, released the official lineup…

Day for Night Rundown, Pt. 1: Kendrick Lamar + New Order + Indian Jewelry + Prismo + Dan Deacon + EFFIXX + Psychic TV + Kamil Nawratil + Work-Order

And now, here we are. After much hyping, Day for Night is finally here, bursting into life tomorrow, Saturday, December 19th, and Sunday, December 20th, over at Silver Street Studios (2000 Edwards St.). And to me, at least, said hyping looks very much justified…

Day for Night Lineup, Now Released

Today’s the day, folks — the official lineup for brand-new music (and other stuff) festival Day for Night, which takes place at Silver Street Studios on December 19th & 20th, was just released a short while ago. And yeah, it’s pretty damn impressive, both in scope and diversity…

Day for Night: FPH Delivers Us a Winter Music/Art/Whatever Extravaganza, At Long Last

Oh, yes. Ever since the very first-ever Free Press Summer Fest hit this city, there’s been grumbling and griping out there (and from me right here, it’s true) about why in the sweet fuck did Omar Afra and his Free Press Houston crew decide to schedule their big-ass music fest for the hottest part of the H-town summer? And could we please-please-please make it “Fallfest” or “Winter Fest” or something?…
