Folk Family Revival, Water Walker

Four years is a long time for anybody, and even longer for a musician, who’s liable to spend large chunks of that time on the road, scrabbling and scraping for any way they can somehow get ahead and avoid going broke doing what they love. It’s a long time in which you might stumble, might fall…

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. 1: Square and Compass + What Made Milwaukee Famous + Sunrise and Ammunition + Willie Nelson + More

Yep, into the weekend, now, and it’s Friday, January 25th, with plenty of cool stuff going on. Here we go…

Yup, it’s Saturday (December 8th, specifically), and there’s definitely good stuff happening. In fact, there’s pretty much a three-way tie for Most Badass Oh-Crap-Why-Wasn’t-I-There? Show Going this evening; here’s what sounds & looks good to me…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Axiom 25th Anniversary (Day One) + The Wrong Ones + Fox and Cats + Folk Family Revival + More

Gah. Fighting the post-Thanksgiving malaise — and feeling a bit cabin fever-ish, too, since there’s nowhere you can really go today and not hit massive crowds — this Friday, November 23rd, so this is a little slow in coming…

Tonight: Hot Water Music + OFF! + Grandfather Child + Folk Family Revival + Coog Radio Anniversary + More

Sorry for the recent quiet, all, but I’ve been out of town for Day Job work, meeting people & hiking around Cambridge, MA. (Which is very, very cool, incidentally, even if it’s more expensive than God to live here.) However, there is literally a heaping pile of awesomeness happening back on the home front…

Yr. (Early) Weekend, Pt. 1: Weird Party (Rev’d!) + Wild Moccasins (Rev’d!) + Dax Riggs + Web Awards + Broncho (MP3!) + More

What the…? Is it really only a Thursday (June 28th, to be exact)? Then how in the hell are there so many damn cool things going on tonight? Seriously, there’s more good stuff on the calendar tonight than there is on Friday

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Suspects + Blaggards + Houston Free Thinkers + Tyagaraja + Folk Family Revival + FlyFest + More

And on we go, to Saturday, May 19th, when there’s still plenty going on across our fair city; some of it’s earlier in the day than the rest, so get out there early. Here’s what looks/sounds good to me…

WE LIKE THINGS 2011: A ridiculously-late look at what was cool last year.

I feel like Rip Van Winkle. I’m not sure how the hell it happened, but one minute I’m sitting here watching the munchkins open presents at Christmas, and I blink, and what the fuck? It’s April? Wow. It’s like the start of 2012’s just zipped past…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Linus Pauling Quartet + Project Grimm + Blackmarket Syndicate + Record Store Day + The Features + More

Moving on to Saturday, April 21st, and there’s still plenty going on; got a crapload of stuff I need to get done this afternoon, so I’ll get right to it…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: ZenHill Night + George Clinton + SXSW Overflow + Folk Family Revival + More

Yep, it’s Friday, March 9th, heading into the weekend — a little late, I know, but heck, there’s plenty still going on. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Adelaine + The Soldier Thread + Open The Taps + Blues Museum Fundraiser + More

Yeah, I know — actually early on posting this one, even though tomorrow (i.e., Sunday, February 12th) is probably the lightest of the weekend. But hey, quality makes up for quantity sometimes, y’know, so here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Main St. Block Party + Something Fierce + CounterCrawl + Indian Jewelry + More

It’s looking like one hell of a Saturday (January 28th, that is), y’all. Not only is there the “biggie” of the bunch, the Main Street Block Party, but there’s also a ton of other stuff going on besides…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Crooked Fingers + Adelaine (Interviewed!) + Folk Family Revival + Invincible Czars + More

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…

Yr. Weekend: HPMA Madness! + Peter Wolf Crier + The Lotus Effect + hasHBrown + H.I.S.D. + More

Yep, yep, yep. We’re now onto Sat., November 12th, and obviously, there’s still plenty to do. To be completely honest, though, there’s one thing that pretty well overrides all the rest, at least for me…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Lords of the Universe + Illegal Wiretaps + Bang Bangz + Featherface + Chimaira + More

Coming into Saturday, October 29th, and it’s even more packed-tightly than Friday evening was. Plenty, plenty, plenty going on, not even counting all the haunted houses & parties & whatever…

Good News Time: Folk Family Revival (Maybe?) Nominated for Grammys & football, etc. Heads Overseas

Ah, how I love the good news — this year’s been weird, actually, in that for once the good news seems, at least, to outweigh the bad (although the bad, like blues legend Earl Gilliam’s recent passing…)

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: IDentity + DiverseWorks + Folk Family Revival + The Julys + Prairie Cadets + More

What is with the weekends, lately? Once again, we’re coming up on a Saturday (August 27th) where there’s literally so much going on I can’t even wrap my brain around it. Wow…

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. 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. 2: Folk Family Revival (Rev’d!) + Dax Riggs + Devin The Dude + Wails + Jealous Creatures + More

Day 2 of this fine weekend, today, Saturday, July 9th, and there’s definitely some good stuff going on. I’ve already mentioned a couple of things, like the benefit for Blues in Hi-Fi DJ Clint Broussard

Folk Family Revival, Unfolding

How old are these guys, again? That’s the thought that keeps replaying in my head, over and over again, as I listen to the Folk Family Revival’s debut full-length, Unfolding. It boggles my mind that at least a couple…
