An Ending & Two Beginnings: Pegstar Bids Farewell to Fitzgerald’s & Fitzgerald’s Gets Reborn

Ever since the news first broke about local booking maestros Pegstar opening their very own purpose-built venue, the sweet-looking White Oak Music Hall, it’s felt like it was only a matter of time before the other shoe dropped…

Friday, You’re In Love: Help the Numbers Documentary Get Made

In case you hadn’t heard already, some good-hearted souls out there — namely, director Marcus Pontello and producers Jeromy Barber and James Templeton (both of production company Dinolion) — are attempting to make a real-live documentary about longtime H-town venue Numbers

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Weird Party + The Mahas + Dex Romweber Duo (MP3!) + Woozyhelmet + Cancellations/Reschedulings + More

A good, good weekend of music coming up (the first day of that being today, Friday, August 5th, mind you), but before I get into all that, there’re a bunch of reschedulings, cancellations, and moves to mention…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Paris Falls + Grand Child + Anarchitex + Prison Soup + Kris Becker (Reviewed!) + Faster Pussycat + More

As we head into the holiday madness this weekend — believe it or not, I didn’t realize ’til this AM that I actually got Monday off from the Day Job — I wanted to mention some of the cooler of the many, many cool things going on…

Dead Horse Reunion Scheduled — Lead Singer Controversy Developing

Dead Horse is reuniting for a headlining show at Warehouse Live on Saturday, October 22. The news was announced as a routine Facebook post Monday afternoon. I immediately called the Warehouse Live box office to confirm…

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: Fired For Walking/Dead Mineral (7″!) + Graffiti Show + Glasnost + The Examples + More

Gah. Way, way, way behind on tonight’s rundown of Cool Things Going On — sorry about that, but Midget #1’s gymnastics “graduation” and then Game Night kinda win out… Anyway, there’s still plenty of good stuff going on this evening/night…

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. 3: Caroline Sessions + Bobby Long + Ragged Hearts + Lion of Wall Street + More

It may be Sunday (April 10th, to be precise), but that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck in terms of bands to see, shows to check out, etc. — there’s still a handful of cool things going on, even as the weekend winds down…

Yr. (Late) Weekend, Pt. 2: Overflow Fest + Giant Battle Monster + The Tyburn Jig + Jealous Creatures + Gladys Knight + More

The site’s getting short shrift again tonight, I’m afraid; it’s been a crazy couple of days, trying to get a ton of stuff done while I’ve been technically on vacation, and right now I’m in the horrific throes of re-doing the back room, which basically means moving everything out of it…

Tonight: Sarah Jaffe + Art Institute + Avant Garden Quinceanera + Animals As Leaders + Peter Murphy Announcement + More

Holy crap — what day is it, again? Thursday, you say? (January 20th, if we’re going to be exact…) Wow. There’s a crapload of excellent stuff going on tonight, so I wanted to at least drop the list in here…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Wu-Tang Clan + Pik-N-Pak Reunion + Rock the Shelter + Toys 4 Tots + Binarium + More

Believe it or not, this Sunday, December 12th, is looking, if anything, like a busier day (show-wise, that is) than the rest of the weekend. How often does that happen? Not real often, y’all. So take advantage, ’cause there’s some good shit going down…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Batusis (Cheetah Chrome/Sylvain Sylvain!) + Pik-N-Pak Pre-Party + Mink Anniversary + More

Folks, we have one heck of an amazing-ass weekend in front of us. Seriously, from everything that’s going on, you’d think it was some big holiday weekend or something, not just some random second weekend in December…

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…

Henry Rollins, Tonight at the House of Blues

Henry Rollins always seems to me to be pretty much a love-or-hate thing, and I’ll freely admit that I fall pretty much on the “love” side of the line. The guy drives my wife nuts — she’s thinks he’s a self-important idiot, and yeah, I can get how she thinks that — but dammit, I […]

Numbers

This place used to be the prominent “mid-size venue” in town, where bands who can’t (or don’t want to) pack the Woodlands or the Compaq Center…
