Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: American Fangs + Hell City Kings + Hello Chief + B.E. Godfrey + Frenetic After Dark + Lincoln Durham + More

Damn. This weekend’s really crept up on me, I have to say; I’ve been spending the past few weeks doing other things, and now I’m scrambling to pick up the pieces, both here and at The Day Job. sigh. Hope everybody out there had a good, safe, not-tragic holiday…

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…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Austin Rhoads Benefit + Muhammad Ali + The Wiggins (Video!) + Hearts of Animals + More

I’ve been a bit on the distracted side this week, trying to catch up from my time away — for some reason, I’d assumed I’d have lots of time on my hands in the evenings while up in Cambridge, and that didn’t happen, which was very cool, but means I didn’t get stuff done…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Inaugural Walter’s Bazaar + Something Fierce + The Wrong Ones + Brave New Waves + More

And here we are, heading into Sunday, May 27th; it’s a wee bit quieter than the past two days, but there is still some great stuff going on…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: False Idols VU Tribute + Balaclavas + Plants and Animals + Peloton + SHFL Stage Benefit + More

Whoa. Tonight, Saturday, May 26th, is a full, full night of cool stuff, so much so that I’m having a hard time picking a favorite show. Damn. Here’s what I’m liking…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Danneurysm + Shellee Coley (Rev’d!) + Drag the River + Megadeth + Mikey & The Drags + More

Crap, crap, crap. Running late, seemingly as always — been a hell of a week, y’all, and I’m still catching up, even though it’s now Friday (March 2nd, to be precise). sigh. Anyway, there’s plenty good going on tonight, so here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Peloton + Omotai + The Fox Derby (Rev’d!) + Poor Pilate + George Baba + More

Yes, folks, it’s now Friday, February 17th, and don’t let the rain get you down, because there’s a ton of stuff going on tonight, a lot of which is very, very cool. I’ll get right to it…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Main St. Block Party + Something Fierce + CounterCrawl + Indian Jewelry + More

It’s looking like one hell of a Saturday (January 28th, that is), y’all. Not only is there the “biggie” of the bunch, the Main Street Block Party, but there’s also a ton of other stuff going on besides…

Main Street Block Party, Tomorrow in Midtown

Holy wow, y’all. Tomorrow (Sat., January 28th) marks the 2nd-ever installment of the Main Street Block Party, a heavyweight pile of bands and musicians all spread out across a bunch of Midtown venues, including…

Yr. Weekend: Quintron + FPH NYE Cataclysm + CSMDP + The Suspects + Bonanzarama + More

Argh. And now, I’m sick. I’d planned to post about all the festivities going on this weekend, but feeling as shitty as I do, I’m going to have to settle for hitting a handful of the big ones and leaving it at that. Here goes…

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: Montrose Winter Social + Linus Pauling Quartet + Rachael Yamagata + Adelaine + More

Alrighty, y’all, it’s now Saturday, December 3rd, and it’s time to hold on to your shit, because today/tonight is where it gets a little bit crazy. Before I get to that, though, I wanted to mention a few changes/odd things…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Octopus Project + Benefit for Tim Young + Co-Pilot + Clory Martin + The Suffers + More

It’s gonna be a crazy one, y’all; this weekend is insanely busy, with tons of stuff going on each & every night, starting with tonight, 11/11/11. I swear, it’s just been like that lately — the weekends when not much good is happening have been few & far between…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Dead Horse Reunion + FPH Oktoberfest + BMC Block Party + SkateStock + Featherface + More

Wow. It’s another insanely-packed Saturday (October 22nd, specifically), with so much going on there’s no way I’ll be able to talk about all of it. Man….

Late-Notice Muhammad Ali Tour Kickoff Show, Tonight

Dangit, I knew I was gonna miss one… Somehow I totally overlooked tonight’s show up at Notsuoh — badass, wide-grinning indie-punk gang {Muhammad Ali} are headlining…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Prince Paul + Mikey & The Drags + Rock Portraits Afterparty + Muhammad Ali + Peloton + More

Holy crap, there’s a lot going on today. It’s a Saturday (August 20th, specifically), which generally tends to be busy to begin with, but damn. I’m afraid I’m not going to be able to talk about all of it…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Mathletes Album Release (Rev’d!) + Rock the Bells + Bummerfest + Fringe Fest + More

There’s plenty going on this weekend, but I’m afraid yours truly will be a bit occupied and is going to miss it, so I’m going to try to hit ’em all briefly, at least. It kills me, actually, because on Saturday (August 13th, that is), in particular…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Two Star Symphony + Co-Pilot + The Small Sounds + Square and Compass + White Linen + More

Holy crap, is there a lot going on tomorrow, Saturday, August 6th; there’s so much good stuff happening that I can’t entirely keep track of it, honestly… I’m gonna have to blaze through it somewhat, but that’s kinda-sorta okay…

Tomorrow: Jacob Calle Wants to See You Go Wild (On TV)

Ah, Jacob Calle — I love the guy, think he’s a lot of fun, but I’m never quite sure what to make of his various projects, and this one’s the latest…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Muhammad Ali + Wheel Workers + Featherface + Fired For Walking + Rainbow Dragon + Colourmusic + More

Saturday today (July 16th), and while the rain’s scuttled my own weekend beach-going plans, sadly, there’s a crapload of stuff going on right here that’s very, very cool besides. I’m honestly not sure where to start, there’s so much of it…

Muhammad Ali

One of the best rock bands in town right now, Muhammad Ali (also spelled variously “MUHAMMADALi” or “Muhammadali”) are at first glance just this raw, noisy, messy force of nature, howling and hammering away at their instruments to create a furious squall…

Dance Down the Rain: Surviving Summerfest 2011, Day Two

Damn. First off, yes, I do realize it’s been two freaking weeks since the end of this year’s Free Press Summerfest, and a week-and-a-half since the first installment

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Farewell to KTRU + Phosphorescent (Revd!) + Yppah + Venomous Maximus (Revd!) + Wilco + More

Yep, yep, yep — it’s a Friday (May 6th, to be precise), and here we are again, with a full slate of shows staring us (er, me) right in the face all damn weekend. I’ll try to hit some highlights, or at least what seem to me like highlights…

This Friday: Say Farewell to 40 Years of KTRU on the Air

I’ve always felt that grieving the dead by being all somber and quiet and melancholy is generally a bad thing; you shouldn’t celebrate the dead by acting like you’re dead, but rather by celebrating life and survival and all the other good things that continue on…

Calling All Drummers: Muhammad Ali & Giant Battle Monster Need You

Sounds like it’s been a bad week for local bands and drummer-type people… I dunno the details, but in the past few days both {Muhammad Ali} and {Giant Battle Monster} have parted ways with their respective drummers…

Tonight: Damien Jurado + Franz Nicolay + listenlisten + Square & Compass + Say Hi + More

Holy shit, y’all — what the hell happened to tonight? It’s a Wednesday (March 16th), but it sure looks like a Friday ’round town. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to point fingers at all of it; there’s just too damn much…

Tonight: Parts & Labor(!) + Black Congress + Davila 666 + Muhammad Ali + Toro Y Moi + Cloud Nothings + More

Busy night for a Monday (March 14th), and there’re some very cool shows going on, especially the Parts & Labor show up at Fitzgerald’s (which also happens to be the first show…

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…

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. 2: Main Street Block Party + NOFX + Latch Key Kids + One Mic Houston + Tattooed For Good + Metal Summit 4 + More

Aaaaand here’s the biggie of the weekend — Saturday, January 22nd, is looking like an awesomely busy, option-filled day, I have to say. Not sure if I’ll be able to make it out to any of this stuff, but hey, you definitely shouldn’t follow my example…

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: Clouded/Project Grimm Reunion (MP3s!) + American Fangs + Roky Moon & BOLT + Muhammad Ali + More

Now that the dust’s settled a bit, and all the shredded bits of wrapping paper have been thrown out (at our house, anyway), it’s time to run down the second night of all-out holiday insanity of the weekend — namely, Sunday, December 26th. Here’s what looks cool to me…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Indian Jewelry + Roky Moon & BOLT Do-Over + Girls Rock Camp + Temporary Insanity II + Jesse Dayton + More

Day 2 of a busy-as-hell weekend… Today (Saturday, December 18th) is a pretty massive one, particularly on the local front — and believe me when I say that that’s nothing to sneeze at. Anybody who thinks nothing worth listening to…

The Sour Notes at Mango’s, Tonight (Plus Muhammad Ali, Hiss & Hum, Zorch, & Review/MP3s!)

Wanted to give an extra-special shoutout to Austin (by way of Houston; singer/guitarist Jared Boulanger used to be in a bunch of bands down here, I know) quintet The Sour Notes

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: heyBABY! + Jason Webley + Cory Derden + Michelle Yom + Adam Butera + More

Well, it ain’t as crazy as it’s been, but tonight, Sunday, November 14th, still has some cool-sounding shows going on. Here’s what I’m liking at the moment…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Hold Steady + Polvo (MP3!) + Muhammad Ali + Loretta Lynn + Mathletes + Salt N Pepa + More

Um. Wow. That’s really the only thing that comes to mind when I just sit here & stare at the list of all the ridiculously cool shows going on tonight (Sat., November 6th, that is). It’s like somebody up there decided to torment me personally (real likely, I know)…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: listenlisten (Rev’d!) + Callers (MP3!) + Helmet + Somosuno + Invincible Czars + Ghostland Observatory (Rev’d!) + More

Late, late, late — if I’m ever actually early with one of these, it’ll be a damn Christmas miracle. But hey, that’s how it goes some (er, most) days… Anyway, there’s still time to get out & about; here’s where you ought to go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Holy Fuck + Indian Jewelry + Balaclavas + Binarium Sound Series + Lower Dens + More

Late, late, late, yeah, yeah, yeah. Sorry, had to dig a hole (well, expand an existing hole, actually) in the back yard and then couldn’t really move for a few hours. Anyway, it’s the end of the weekend, and a storm appears to be currently hammering parts of the city…

A Weekend of Benefits: Sedition Books + Weird Party + Nathan Hart + Pencils 4 Ghana + Wesfest

Man, there sure seem to be a ton of these types of shows lately; I can’t say that’s a good thing, since they arise in a lot of cases out of some kind of tragedy…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: George Clinton + Quintron + Leo Party + The Lotus Effect + The Dead Rabbits + Filter + More

Wow. The first of several busy-busy nights, looks like — tonight (Friday, July 23rd) is looking pretty epic, with a ton of possibilities for all you valiant show-going folk out there…
