Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Clinic + No Joy + Adelaine + Holy Fiction + Square and Compass + Kristine Mills + Houston Celtic Festival + More

On into Saturday, April 27th, today, and again, there’s a crapload of good stuff happening. Here’s what looks/sounds good to me…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Bright Men of Learning + listenlisten + The Business + Holy Fiction + D.R.I. + More

Well, it’s Saturday now, March 10th, and once again, there’s plenty going on — hell, more than yesterday, if anything. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Buxton (Rev’d!) + Bang Bangz + Co-Pilot + Holy Fiction/Orchestra (Interviewed!) + More

Well, folks, I am firmly stuck in the midst of February Birthday Madness (this is what happens when your wife and daughter have birthdays within a week of one another), so I’ve got to keep this pretty brief… Which is a shame, because tonight (Sat., February 4th) is looking pretty awesome…

More Than Ever: Holy Fiction Takes The Future As It Comes

Holy Fiction is a rare kind of band — they’ve got influences, to be sure, but at the end of the day, they sound like nobody but themselves. They’re the sort of band other bands get compared to; they’ve managed to craft a sound that rides the line…

For The Kids: Holy Fiction Plays with the Dulles Middle School Symphony Orchestra, Next Month

Got word about a very cool-sounding show coming up at the start of next month — Saturday, February 4th, specifically — and wanted to mention it up here so maybe-maybe folks will spread the word somewhat. The truly excellent {Holy Fiction}, whom I admire the heck out of…

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…

Tonight: The Tontons Tour Kickoff + The Dead Revolt, Interviewed

Quick, quick, quick, y’all. Tonight (Thurs., December 1st) is not only the first show in a while for cool rockers {The Dead Revolt} — whom writer/musician Jason Smith interviewed…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Holy Fiction (Reviewed!) + Sara Van Buskirk + Squishees + Rivers + Eric Dick + More

Got to make this somewhat quick, but I didn’t want to miss out on mentioning at least a few of the awesome shows going on this evening (Friday, July 29th, to be specific)… Top of the pile for me, at least, is the show over at Warehouse Live

Holy Fiction, Hours From Dance

My advice for listening to Holy Fiction’s Hours From Dance? Don’t even think about it in relation to the band’s “real” full-length, 2010’s excellent Hours From It; just forget that album even exists, at least for a little while…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Busy Kids + Manchester Orchestra + The Standells + Wails + Holy Fiction + Spin Doctors + More

A good, long (well, for me, anyway) Memorial Day weekend coming up, and it’s looking like a damn busy one, to boot, starting with tonight, Friday, May 27th. First off, there’s a cool-ass lineup of garage-y, punk-y goodness going on at the Big Star Bar

Yr. (Early) Weekend: Canned Acoustica 3 + Jealous Creatures + The Fox Derby + Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. + Generationals + More

There’s some very, very cool stuff going on tonight (Thurs., May 26th), so I wanted to pop on here & mention it; sorry for the quiet these past several days… First & kinda-sorta foremost, over at Warehouse Live

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Sour Notes + The Energy + The Manichean + IFest + Holy Fiction + May Day + More

Holy freaking crap, y’all. I’d thought last night was busy, but today (Saturday, April 30th) has turned out to be downright insane. There’s so much going on today & tonight that I’m not entirely sure where to start; I definitely can’t talk about all of it, I’m afraid…

WE LIKE THINGS 2010: Amazingness you need to hear & see from last year.

So, the Grammys are well and over, so I guess it’s about time to get the Official Space City Rock Top-Ten Lists of Amazingly Cool Things You Must See/Hear/Whatever (late, late, late, sure, but hey, we meant to do that, alright?). Read it, and obey…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: This Year’s Tiger + Born Again Virgins + Holy Fiction + The Canvas Waiting + Upcoming Stuff + More

Heading on into the weekend, y’all, so here’s our semi-regular rundown, again in its kinda-sorta-expanded form. (Although I have to admit that I did like doing last week’s quick blast-out of everything…)

A Little H-Town Music News Madness

I’ve been way, way behind on the local music news-type stuff, unfortunately. I have a stupid tendency to just kind of “collect” news I get for long periods of time, waiting ’til there’s enough (in my OCD brain, that is) to post about…

Tonight: Featherface (Reviewed!) + The Fox Derby + The Rocketboys + Holy Fiction + Misfits + Chase Hamblin + More

What? It’s Thursday, seriously? You couldn’t tell it by looking at the schedule, I swear… There’s a crap-ton of good-sounding stuff going on tonight; I don’t have the brainpower left to talk about all of it, but here’s what looks cool…

Holy Fiction, Hours From It

Wow. It’s always a funny thing when you’ve heard a band before, liked the bits and pieces you’ve run across, and been curious to hear more, and then when you finally do get a glimpse of the full picture, as it were, you realize that you’d previously had no freaking idea what they were really about…
