Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: the last place you look + Knights of the Fire Kingdom + Vinal Edge Opening + Babelfishh + More

It’s Saturday now, July 7th, and there’s nearly as much cool, cool stuff going on today as there was yesterday. Here goes: Nava’s Beardy B-Day Bash, featuring the last place you look, Nothingmore, & Recovery Room @ Warehouse Live (Studio) Ah, yeah. I swear, those guys in the last place you look are flat-out great, […]

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Linus Pauling Quartet + Burned Out + Art Institute + Ruckus on the Railway + Gretchen Schmaltz + More

It feels like a slow-moving day to me, for some reason, but today (Saturday, January 21st, that is) is really anything but. There’s a crapload of stuff going on; here’s what I think sounds cool…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Kings of Leon Rescheduled + Finnegan + Skate & Rock + Roky Moon & BOLT! + Omotai + Julydoscope + More

Saturday (July 30th, you calendar-less bastards out there) is upon us, and there’s a ton of stuff going on. Before I go into that, though, a bit of bad news: tonight’s show out at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion with Kings of Leon

Houston Twestival 2011, Today!

Damn, damn, damn. I just about completely dropped the ball on this one, I’m sad to say. Indefatigable SCR contributor Robin (whose own very cool blog is up over here & well worth a read, btw) pointed me to this thing last freaking week…

Tonight: Mantis (Video!) + Sing Your Life + Nobunny + #RSAApproved + Saints & Tzadiks + More

Some good, good stuff going on tonight (Wed., February 16th), so I didn’t want to let it slip past without at least a mention… First & foremost, I’m psyched to see that the band Mantis has crept stealthily back out of the dark…

Update: Meryll (Tonight!) + Flight of the Conchords + PRE + Gretchen Schmaltz + more…

Yep, another week, another update — no new features this week, but we do have a fresh new pile of reviews for y’all, including yours truly pontificating on the 2nd full-length from Austinites Meryll. Who, I should say, not only happen to be really good in a catch-you-off-guard kind of way (I’ve had “Lightning Threatens” […]

Gretchen Schmaltz, Laced Up Tightly

Based on a cursory pass through Laced Up Tightly, it’d be easy to dismiss Schmaltz as just another indie-folkie left high and dry in the post-Lilith Fair America, but that’d be a mistake. Beyond the easy labeling, Schmaltz is a fine, emotive, heart-on-the-sleeve songwriter…
