Tonight: Lucero & Robert Ellis Roar Through Stafford (No, Seriously)

I don’t get out much these days; it’s a sad, sad truth of my near-suburban Soccer-/Theater-/Cub Scout-Dad existence. When I see a show coming up, even one that sounds truly, truly awesome, my immediate, instinctual response is, “ah, fuck, I’m too damn tired, it’s gonna be too far away, too late a night; I should just stay home and watch TV or read.” So, in a lot of cases, that’s exactly what I do…

John Evans, Polyester

“A Tale of Two Elvises” — that’s what keeps popping into my head, weirdly, as I listen to John Evans’ new album Polyester. And it does make sense, kind of, as the album rolls on. I’ll explain how in a minute, but at the root, it’s because, see, Polyester isn’t much like what I’ve heard from Evans…

Bowie Elvis Fest: Celebrate The King & The Thin White Duke, Tonight at The Continental & Big Top

Yeah, yeah — technically speaking, Elvis Presley and David Bowie were born on January 8th, not January 9th, but what the hell, right? I seriously doubt either man would disapprove of all the good people who’ll be celebrating their joint birthday tonight, the 9th, up at The Continental Club and The Big Top

Help Make a Movie: The Hunchback of Mexico Trailer Release & Fundraising Party, Tonight

Cool, cool, cool. I hate to admit it, but I never got to see Honky Tonk Blood, the quasi-tongue-in-cheek B-grade (and intentionally so) comedy/horror flick by Hank Schyma of the {Southern Backtones}

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Defeat the Noise Ordinance Fundraiser + Southern Backtones (Rev’d!) + Lisa’s Sons + Darkest Hour + More

Argh. Late again, late again, dangit… It’s Saturday, February 11th, and there’s some very cool stuff going on; some of it I’ve already missed out on, sadly, like the 3PM show over at Cactus with {The Wheel Workers}

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Joe & Alicia Get Married + Haven Benefit + Honky Tonk Blood Brothers + The Illegal Wiretaps + More

Wow. Gonna be a busy weekend, y’all, although tonight (Fri., December 16th) isn’t quite as insane as tomorrow night. Before I go into the big-ass list, just a couple of things I wanted to note…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: BestFest + Dig Dug + Elliot’s B-Day + Binarium + Wine Fest + More

Sunday coming up — September 25th, to be precise — and somewhat surprisingly, it’s pretty damn busy, at least for a Sunday… Of course, tomorrow night’s the second day of the still-cool Houston Press BestFest

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Benjamin Wesley + Smithfield + Timothy Qualls + Black Joe Lewis + Hank Schyma + More

Just posted about a few of the benefit-ish shows going on this weekend, but there’s plenty more besides, starting today, Friday, September 10th. Here’s what I think sounds good that’s happening today/tonight…
