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…

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…

Live: Paste Untapped Festival Houston

I should know to always leave a little extra time between getting to a show and actually expecting to get in, but as usual, I was running on time instead of early. That nearly made me late — there was quite a line forming at about 4:30…

Yes Indeed! 2013 Rundown, Pt. 2: The Dead Revolt + FLCON FCKER + RIVERS + Ex-Optimists + Naughty Professor + Say Girl Say + Electric Attitude + Perseph One + Alkari + More

Alright, y’all — here we are, back again with the second set of previews for the Yes Indeed! 2013 Music Fest happening this coming Saturday, September 14th, over at the Last Concert Cafe, the Houston House of Creeps, & The Doctor’s Office

Electric Attitude, Skintight & Solid Gold

Alright, Electric Attitude, I’ll admit it: you got me. You made it work, and you got me, so much so that I’ve been humming along with the songs on Skintight & Solid Gold in my head for a straight week now. And to tell you the truth, I was pretty worried…

WE LIKE THINGS 2012: Telling you all about the awesome things you (maybe) missed last year.

Yes, another year gone by, and another (ridiculously-late) set of top ten lists from us folks here at SCR of all of the good/amazing/awesome things we ran across in 2012. Your intrepid writerly-type people have gone through literally thousands…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Haute Wheels Houston + Ghosts Along the Brazos + Houston Holi Mela 2013 + More

On into Sunday, March 24th, y’all, and there’s still some good stuff happening, although some of it’s relatively early in the day (er, afternoon), or even going on right freaking now. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Jealous Creatures (Rev’d!) + Quiet Company + Something Fierce + Band of Mercy + Artopia + Heights Vinyl + More

Whoa. Big, big, big night tonight — Saturday, January 26th, that is — with a whole heck of a lot of good shows vying for your attention. Here’s what I think sounds cool, at least…

Live: The Bright Light Social Hour/Ishi

I have Houston promoter Hector Del Valle to thank for my first exposure to The Bright Light Social Hour; he brought them from Austin to Houston for the Daniel Johnston 50th birthday party concert. I was actually there to see my friends…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Knights of the Fire Kingdom + Something Wicked + Bummerfest 2 + Something Fierce + More

Trying something a little novel tonight, namely posting about the shows this Saturday, October 27th, before, um, Saturday, October 27th. And if anything, there’s more going on tomorrow than there is tonight, and a lot of it’s flat-out…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Matt and Kim + Oberhofer + Burned Out 3 + SoundMass + Krewella (Video!) + More

Oh, yes. Into the weekend now, starting with tonight, Friday, October 19th, and there’s a truly impressive pile of things going on, all at the same time. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: !Yes Indeed! Fest + American Sharks + Illegal Wiretaps + Wine Fest + Touche Amore + More

And now, on to today — Saturday, September 29th — and holy crap, there’s a lot going on. Seriously, there’s so much happening this afternoon/evening that I’m pretty sure I’m actually missing a bunch of it. Damn…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Tom Carter Benefit #2 + Tyagaraja (Rev’d!) + Electric Attitude + The Pons + Grievous Angels + Ruby Jane + More

On to the next one… It’s Saturday, August 25th, and yep, there’s still a ton of great stuff happening, seriously. Get off your lazy ass and out of the house, eh? Here goes…

Today: Houston SunBurn Festival 2012 Hits Downtown

Just in case you thought the HPMAs were the only music festival-type thing going on in Downtown this weekend… Got word earlier in the week about a new(?) deal…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Knights of the Fire Kingdom + Co-Pilot + Bright Light Social Hour + Rammstein + Fox & Cats + More

Hey, folks — on to the Memorial Day weekend, and there’s plenty happening for those of us not heading out on beach trips or campouts or visits to relatives or wherever the hell else people go when it’s a holiday. The fun starts tonight, Friday, May 25th

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Alkari (Rev’d!) + Linus Pauling Quartet + Better Block + Benefit for Bill DeGidio + More

On to Saturday, May 12th, and if anything, it looks like there’s more going on today than there was yesterday. Before I get to that, though, I wanted to mention a couple of things. First, in case you didn’t see the very nice {Rocks Off} post about it

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Tontons + Wild Moccasins + listenlisten + Wheel Workers + Young Girls + More

I’ve got a crazy, crazy weekend ahead of me — not involving music, but involving multiple family birthdays — so I’ve got to keep this brief for now, but never fear, there’s a huge pile of good stuff going on this weekend, starting tonight, Fri., February 3rd

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Scale The Summit + Quiet Company + Buxton + Art Institute + The Shadow + Liberty Fest + More

Running up into the weekend, y’all, and I don’t have any extra-special show-related news to impart, so let’s just cut to the chase for once. Here’s what all’s going on tonight, Friday, January 27th, that I happen to think will be cool…

From The Heart: Chris Gray Day, This Saturday

Yep, you’ve probably already heard about this by now, but just to add to the chorus… As well as being the awesome {Latch Key Kids} show I’ve already blathered about, Saturday, January 14th is also Chris Gray Day, with festivities centered around the Midtown nexus…

2011 Houston Music in Photos

I bought a used Nikon D80 in the summer of 2010 and was instantly discouraged by my photos. It took a lot of reading, looking at others’ photos, adjusting my camera, buying new lenses (most of these are taken with a 35mm f/1.8), and messing around to finally get in a photography groove…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Rocktoberfest + Tontons + Colour Revolt + Ume + Roky Erickson + More

Saturday, October 1, as of a half-hour or so ago, and there’s plenty of good stuff going on, for sure. Before I get into that, though, there’ve been a small slew of changes and cancellations to the schedule…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Art Institute + Fitz Birthday + Sunrise and Ammunition + Bike to Party + Venomous Maximus + More

Yes, yes — it’s now the weekend, and there’s a lot going on. Things’ll get crazier as the weekend goes on, but even tonight, Friday, September 23rd, is pretty damn nuts. First off (and coming up pretty quick), those crazy art-punks in the aptly-named {Art Institute}

Yr. Weekend (& Beyond), Pt. 1: Black Congress + Weird Party + Diplo + Goodnight Summer + Jealous Creatures + Blaggards + More

Heading into the Labor Day weekend with Friday, September 2nd, and I have to say, I’m feeling pretty psyched, not just about the weekend and not just because it’ll be yours truly’s birthday this coming Saturday, September 3rd

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Venomous Maximus (Rev’d!) + Mason Lankford + The Handshake + Kashmere Stage Band + More

Diving headlong into the weekend, now, with Friday, August 19th, and there’s some great stuff going on across town. First, though, just a couple of changes and reschedulings coming… Tonight it appears that Days of the New have cancelled…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Warped Tour (MP3!) + Pride Fest/Prideapalooza + Other Lives + Oax (MP3!) + Gritsy + More

Yeah, I’m attempting to not let the rest of the weekend get the jump on me, this time; let’s see how it goes, eh? Cross yr fingers, y’all… The big item on the list, at least in the physical sense, is this year’s edition of the Vans Warped Tour

Yr. (Late) Weekend, Pt. 2: Young Girls (Revd!) + IFest + Dengue Fever + Bright Men + T.S.O.L. + More

Argh. Late, late, late, sorry — spent the day dealing with sick kids & family members, and it just plain got away from me, I’m afraid. Which sucks, because there’s a lot of very awesome stuff going on tonight, Saturday, May 7th

Yr. Early-Brief Weekend: Future In Stereo + GOBBLE GOBBLE (Rev’d!) + Bare Wires (MP3) + Ragged Hearts + More

Yeah, so I know the What Cheer? Brigade set at the SXSW Overflow Fest isn’t the only thing going tonight (Thurs., March 10th), but dammit, I’ve gotta keep this brief…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Main Street Block Party + NOFX + Latch Key Kids + One Mic Houston + Tattooed For Good + Metal Summit 4 + More

Aaaaand here’s the biggie of the weekend — Saturday, January 22nd, is looking like an awesomely busy, option-filled day, I have to say. Not sure if I’ll be able to make it out to any of this stuff, but hey, you definitely shouldn’t follow my example…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Daniel Johnston’s B-day + Sara Van Buskirk + Venomous Maximus + S.P.E.A.K. II + More

Weekend coming down, and there’s plenty to do & hear, despite the freezing-ass cold. (Seriously, y’all, we’re Texans. We’re adapted to survive the blistering, soul-melting heat of the Houston summer, not bitterly cold winds…)

Coming Up: Downtown Houston Music Fest

Okay, so I’m not entirely sure I’m getting the name right, but it sounds pretty cool, either way… A few weeks back, while emailing back & forth with Tim Shelburne of Austin band Mobley, Tim mentioned that the band would be back in town…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Lower Dens (MP3) + Paz Arts + Dr. Dog (Reviewed!) + Art Institute + The Queers + More

Holy crap. There are an insane number of cool-sounding shows going on tomorrow, Saturday, November 13th — I mean, seriously, a shitload of good shows, so many I’m pretty sure I’m missing some. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Fitz Relaunch III + Slayer (Reviewed!) + Electric Attitude + Fly Fest + Buxton + KTRU Benefit + More

I’ll be down at the beach tomorrow (Surfside in the house…) and celebrating Midget #2’s 1st-ever birthday the next day, so I wanted to point up the cool stuff going on the rest of this weekend at least relatively early — hell, extremely early, for me…

Benefit for Mareshah Shepard, Tonight at Walter’s

Man. I hadn’t heard about this ’til very, very recently, and I’m still feeling sick about it; I didn’t know Mareshah Shepard, but as somebody who’s dodged cars many times on Washington Ave

Tonight: Electric Attitude Hit the Road (And Yeah, Other People Do, Too)

I’m sure I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: as somebody who’s been a passionate observer of the music scene here in H-town for something like 15 years now, it does my soul good to see that these days nearly every damn band in town is attempting to hit the road and play to non-hometown crowds…

Update: Fake Believe (Tonight!) + Electric Attitude (Tonight!) + Behemoth + Dillinger is Dead + More

Hey, all — got a new bunch of reviews up this evening, so I wanted to put a quick note up here about ’em, especially since two of the bands, Fake Believe and Electric Attitude, both happen to be playing tonight (Sat., September 12th) at The Festival at Mink (which I already blathered about here, […]

Electric Attitude, Laser Laser Laser Beams

I’ve been dancing around it a while in my head, and I just can’t think of a friendly, nice way to talk around it, so I’m just going to say it: I don’t like the guitars on Electric Attitude’s latest EP, Laser Laser Laser Beams. At least, I don’t like ’em as much as I feel like I should…

Live: The Octopus Project/Diagonals/Electric Attitude

Often I find myself bemoaning the number of bands skipping Houston on tours, and with a recent history of poor show turn-outs and the Two Gallants incident weighted against the city, I know this unfortunate trend isn’t likely to change overnight. Even bands from our neighboring Austin seem to be giving us the cold shoulder from time to time, making me all the more grateful…
