Good Things Today: At the Drive-In + Football, Etc. + Ruiners + Saint Arnold 23rd Anniversary + Pop Shop Houston + More

Alright, folks — still recovering somewhat from last weekend (a combination of sogginess, tinnitus, and heatstroke), but there’s some truly, truly excellent stuff going on today/tonight (Saturday, June 10th), so I didn’t want to let ’em slip away…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Listen Around Your Way + Football, etc. + Ruiners + Since Always + Dead Leaf Echo + Emmure + Hip Hop Run Houston + Nikkhoo/P.L.X.T.X + More

Hey, there — it’s now Saturday, March 11th, and while the grand opening festivities that were planned for today over at the rechristened/remodeled Avenida Houston (i.e., the area of Downtown Houston around George R. Brown Convention Center) was postponed to a later date because of the weather, there’s still plenty going on…

Football, Etc., Disappear

Sometimes, even when I really, really like a band — like is the case with, say, Houston-dwelling emo purveyors Football, etc. — there’s just some little thing/person/whatever missing to shove the whole thing over the edge into “holy crap, this is amazing” territory. Going by Football, etc.’s new four-song EP, Disappear, it looks like that thing is badass producer J. Robbins. Okay, that’s not all that’s happening here…

football, etc., Audible

Relationships are difficult things to handle; even the good ones, the ones that are worthwhile, take work and pain and struggle. And I’m not even talking about relationships with spouses or partners or whatever, but any relationship…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Stars + California Wives (MP3s!) + Holder + B L A C K I E + Wheel Workers + David Ramirez + More

Dang, y’all — late as usual, I’m afraid, but there’s still lots going on tonight, Friday, October 12th. I’ll forego the chitchat, given the untimeliness of this; here we go…

Tonight: The Rebecca West at the Lanier Theological Library

It’s short notice, I know, but among the pile of pretty great shows going on tonight (The Cult/Against Me!, football, etc., Dr. Ralph Stanley, & Rel the Chosen are all very cool, too), there’s one that stands out for 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…

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…)

Tonight: football, etc. + Reverse the Curse + Pswingset + Yes, Inferno + Square & Compass, at Vinyl Junkie

While I’ll admit that part of me is desperately wishing I could hang with Mos Def & Talib Kweli at the House of Blues tonight…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: football, etc. (Reviewed!) + Koffin Kats + Fat Tony + SXSW Overflow + Sean Reefer + More

Apologies (as always) for the lateness of this one; spent the last two days having Family Time at the Rodeo (where I had to attempt to explain the origin of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday to an annoyed South African carny) & out at the Blue Bell factory in Brenham (which I’d never been to before)…

football, etc., The Draft

Look, I know definitions change. Hell, I work with words for a living, day in and day out — I’m well aware that a word can mean one thing and then shift into meaning something else. That doesn’t mean, however, that I have to like it…

Yr. Weekend: Indian Jewelry + Balaclavas + football, etc. + Benefit for Joey + Adelaine + Chuck Berry + More

Gotta make it a quick little rundown, yet again, but there’s a ton of good stuff happening this evening (Fri., March 4th) — you’ve pretty much got your pick, seriously…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Too $hort + Devin The Dude + Sleep Bellum Sonno + Perfect Future + football, etc. + Binarium 024 + More

Rolling on into Sunday, January 16th, and there’s still some good stuff to do for the weekend; here goes: Honestly, I had no idea Too $hort was even still around…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Muhammad Ali + Hell City Kings + White Rhino + Darwin’s Finches + Billy Wayde + ECHO Opening + More

Night #2 of a pretty darn good weekend coming up — even if it’s no NYE, Saturday, January 8th, still has plenty of good shit going on. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Laura Stevenson & The Cans (MP3s) + The Lotus Effect + Prairie Cadets + Sahara Smith (MP3) + More

More going on this weekend, as always; tomorrow, Sat., October 2nd, definitely included. And while it’s not strictly musical, I’m tempted to drag the midgets down to Sugar Land to check out the ARTernative Fest

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Lightning Bolt + Indian Jewelry + football,etc. + Bright Men + Darwin’s Finches + Tread + HPMA News + More

Yep, it’s that time again, and there’s quite a bit going on this weekend, starting tonight, Friday, July 9th. Assuming the weather holds, it’s looking like it could be pretty badass. Before we go there, though, I’d like to point y’all over to…
