Holy Freaking Whatever Fest, Y’all (Coming August 9th & 10th)

Yeah, yeah; I know, I still need to get my damn writeup online about this year’s awesome FPSF (soon, I swear by all that is good and holy…), but while you’re waiting for that — as I’m sure you all are, with bated breath and everything — there’s been some badass-sounding news this week about another music festival, which will be having its inaugural run August 9th and 10th

Color + Sound: Via Colori Rolls Into Downtown, This Weekend

From tomorrow, Saturday, November 23rd, through Sunday, November 24th, downtown Houston will once again play host to one of the coolest, most unique street festivals this city sees out of a fairly big pile of events each year…

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: Eric Clapton + SXSW Overflow + Sustainable Living Fest + Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside + More

On the road again today — Sat., March 16th — but I’ll try to get a quick post in while the wife oh-so/kindly drives (ah, smartphones & wives are awesome…). Here we go: Eric Clapton/The Wallflowers @ Toyota Center What can I say? I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t go see Clapton if […]

Something Wicked This Way Comes, Tomorrow

Not positive if it’s just me or what, but it sure feels like Houston’s been the recipient of a whole lot of excellent, high-flying electronic/dance/EDM/whatever the kids call it these days music lately. The now-happily-recurring Identity Festival aside, I’d guess it has a lot to do with…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Skatestock + The 71’s + Venomous Maximus + ZZ Top + We Scare Coyotes + More

On into Pt. 2 of our weekend, now, on Saturday, October 20th, with some weirdly warm but still pretty nice weather happening, to boot. Which is good, because there’re some cool festival-type things going on, among other musical-ness…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Via Colori + Katz Coffee Porter Party + Indian Jewelry + Folk-Punk + More

What the…? How the hell is today a Sunday (November 20th, for the calendar-less), with everything that’s going on? Damn… Here’s what looks good to me…

Live: IDentity Festival Houston

We came, we saw, we left early. We were berated for lack of press pass (thanks, booster club!). We rather unsuccessfully tried to reaffix our apparently fictional press passes back to our shirts, pants, sweaty legs, and, finally, camera bags. We jammed…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Haute Wheels + Smoking Popes + Art Institute + Middlefinger(!) + Crawfish Fest + Venomous Maximus + More

It’s a busy, busy Saturday (May 14th, to be exact) upon us, y’all, and there’s a ton of stuff going on… Since it’s a freaking gorgeous day outside, it’s the daytime-type things that are the most appealing to me, I’d say…

Tomorrow: Menil Community Arts Fest & Indie Book Fest

I’m about to fall down flat, I’m so freaking tired — it’s been a rough, rough week — but I didn’t want to skip past this one without at least a quick mention… Tomorrow (Saturday, April 2nd) is the return of the excellent-sounding Menil Community Arts Festival

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Roger Waters + Fallcore 2010 + Via Colori + Girl In A Coma + More

Day 2 of a fairly show-packed weekend — coming up on Saturday, November 20th, and it definitely is a busy day, all ’round. Here goes…

Paint The Street: Via Colori, This Weekend

Another of those H-town things that sound damn, damn cool and that I’ve always meant to check out… This coming Saturday and Sunday, November 20th & 21st, is the Houston installment of the Via Colori Street Painting Festival, once again benefiting the Center for Hearing and Speech

Get Ghoulish, This Weekend: Houston’s Newest Music Festival Kicks Off

Well, we are indeed there — tomorrow, Saturday, October 30th is the much-ballyhooed, impressive-looking, hopefully-badass Ghoulsfest. I’ve got a previous thing I’ve gotta do, so yours truly will unfortunately have to miss out…

Live: Terrastock 4 — Skip the Family Reunion Next Year

There are some things you should probably know going in. Terrastock 4 is, unsurprisingly, the fourth in a series of concerts. This and the previous three-day festivals (held in Rhode Island, England, and California) were all benefits for a fanzine called Ptolemaic Terrascope. Its focus is, as with any fanzine, whatever the editor likes, but can generally be condensed into the phrase “psychedelic music” without too much loss of intention…
