Pop Hero Arthur Yoria’s Back, and He’s Rescuing Stray Dogs Along the Way

So, it looks like Arthur Yoria has come back home to Houston, and oh, man, am I glad to see it. The last I’d heard from Arthur, back in 2010, he was moving up to Brooklyn to try out his sweet-voiced, sometimes stoner-like pop songwriting chops on the hipsters that dwell there…

Tonight: Two Door Cinema Club + Bad Veins + Milk Carton Kids + Cults + More

Yeah, I realize it’s a mere, lowly Tuesday, of all things (November 5th, to be precise), but damn, looking at the calendar for this evening, my jaw just drops. There is a nice-sized pile of excellent stuff happening this evening; here’s what you should be doing…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Quiet Company + Fight Cancer Benefit + Leroy Sibbles + Lager Rhythms + More

Ah, Sunday; usually the day so quiet and laid-back I don’t need to worry about posting about it, but that’s definitely not the case today, April 14th — there’s actually a fair number of things going on, although the bulk of ’em are somewhat outside-the-Loop. Here goes…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: MS Understood + Our Scene United + Local Live Houston + Young Mammals + The Suffers + The Fox Derby + More

It’s looking like one hell of a day/night today, Saturday, April 6th, so I’ll skip the usual blather and just get right to all the cool things happening. Here we go…

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. 2: Bang Bangz + The Fox Derby + A Sundae Drive + Jimmie Dale Gilmore + Humungus + More

sigh. Been a crazy day, y’all — I’m bummed that I completely missed out on the first day of this year’s Haute Wheels Houston food truck festival, especially since they had very cool people like {The Wheel Workers}, {Craig Kinsey}, & {Southern Backtones} playing, dammit…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: St. Patrick’s Day at the Mucky Duck + The Dead Rabbits + The Zombies + The Skatalites + George Strait + More

Ouch. I am sunburned and in pain, with a back that’s been tweaked over a week spent flying and driving and chasing children and sleeping in unfamiliar beds, and I’m ready to sit down and hang out at the house for a while. Today, however, there’s quite a bit of awesomeness happening…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Buxton + Jealous Creatures + The 71’s + American Fangs + Los Skarnales + Reagan Youth + More

Got some previously-scheduled stuff I’m trying to get to tonight, Friday, December 14th, so I’ve got to keep this brief, I’m afraid. There’s a lot of good shows happening, though, so I didn’t want to let ’em fall through the cracks…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Bright Men of Learning + A Sundae Drive + Thou Shall Not Kill…Except + Paige Lewis + More

Last day of the weekend, today, Sunday, January 8th, and yeah, it’s a little bit quieter than the other two. But hey, that doesn’t mean you have to sit at home tonight, lame & bored. Here’re a couple of ideas…

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. 2: Wild Moccasins + listenlisten + Jealous Creatures (Rev’d!) + Art Institute + More

Moving on into Saturday, October 8th, and it’s another busy-ass day, seriously… Some of what’s going on I’ve already mentioned, like the tour kickoff show up at Fitzgerald’s with {The Wild Moccasins}

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Carla Bozulich + Featherface + Brett Detar (Rev’d!) + Lita Ford + Deadmau5 + More

Dang. There’s a lot coming up tonight (Friday, September 16th, that is — and how the hell is it already mid-September? yeesh…), folks, so I’ll get to it as soon as I can & let you know what all looks good to me…

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

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: David Garza + Suzanna Choffel + After Party + Paige Lewis + C.J. Ramone + More

Today feels weird, for some reason; yesterday felt like a Sunday, which always makes the real Sunday (July 17th, to be precise) feel like an extra, added-on day. Usually, that’s a good thing, but it’s got me feeling unsettled this time…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Buxton + The Literary Greats + Biscuit Bombs + Glitch Mob + Alps + Sarah Jaffe + More

Whoa. Got a fairly substantial pile for tonight, Friday, July 8th, so I’ll attempt to get through as much of it as I possibly can… First off, this evening’s a one-two punch in terms of awesome rootsy/folky H-town rockers…

Yr. Weekend (& Beyond!), Pt. 3: Robert Ellis + Come See My Dead Person + Lance Higdon Returns + More

Crap, crap, crap. Late, late, late — sorry, y’all. Tonight (Sunday, June 12th) isn’t a super busy night, at least not compared to what we’ve seen lately, but hell, there’re a few things well, well worth talking about, at least…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Balaclavas + American Fangs + Featherface + RIVERS + Robbie Fulks + Cancellations + More

Coming into Day 1 of the weekend, Friday, May 13th, and there’s a decent-sized pile of good stuff going on, I have to say. Of course, it may also be that I’m just cheery today after finally getting to visit Bernie’s Burger Bus

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Art Institute + Satin Hooks + Black Lips + Weird Party + Pontiak + American Sharks + More

Gotta do this quick, y’all, but there’s plenty going on tonight, Friday, April 29th, even if I can’t give a detailed rundown on all of it… First up, there’s a cool show tonight at Walter’s, with the excellent {Art Institute} & {Satin Hooks}

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Something Fierce (Reviewed!) + The Hold Steady + Joe Pug + Del Tha Funky Homosapien + More

Man. It’s looking to be a crazy, crazy weekend, so I didn’t want to miss giving at least a brief rundown of what all’s going on, starting with tonight, Fri., April 1st

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: The Apples in Stereo + The Wild Moccasins + Magic Kids + Lepers of Melancholy + More

It’s Sunday now, October 7th, and in spite of the day’s usual quiet-ness, there’s actually quite a bit going on this evening. I’m still recovering from last night’s Hold Steady show, personally (seriously, you know you’re getting old when you don’t drink anything but a Coke…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Carolyn Wonderland + Robert Ellis + D.R.U.M. + No Power Fest + Houston Warfare + More

Day #2 of a very, very busy weekend coming up — there’s as much going on Sat., October 9th as there was on Friday. Here’s what I think looks cool, at least…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Like Trains & Taxis + Trout Fishing + Blackmarket Syndicate + IFest + More

Last day of the weekend coming up fast, Sunday, April 25th, and while it’s not quite as insane as the past couple of days, there’s still plenty going on — here’s the list of what looks good to me, at least: Like Trains & Taxis @ Dean’s Credit Clothing This one caught me somewhat off-guard, […]

McGonigel’s Mucky Duck

Man, this is a neat little place. It’s basically supposed to be like a nice, traditional-style Irish pub (although it’s more “Irishy” than most bars I visited…
