Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Tron Sack + Peloton + Bonobo + Flatbush Zombies + OG Ron C + Shlohmo + The Blind Shake + More

Okay, so tonight’s a little odd, in that there is a lot of good-sounding stuff going on, but a lot of it’s stuff that, um, I can’t think of much to say about other than, “hey, it’s good!” So I’ll try to scrape the top, as it were, and mention the ones that I can actually say…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Deafheaven + Peloton + MDC + Marriages + Verbal Abuse + Some Nerve + More

Yeah, I know I’ve been skipping a lot of Sundays lately; what can I say? Recently they’ve been pretty quiet, y’know, but there’s a handful of good things going on tonight, June 23rd. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Peloton + Knights of the Fire Kingdom + Chris Murray + Le Castle Vania + Will to Live + New York City Queens + More

Too much to do, too much to do, and time tick-tick-ticking away, but dangit, there’s a lot of stuff going on this evening (er, right now, as a matter of fact), Friday, April 19th. Without further ado, let’s go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Emmure + Kill Your Friends Club + Omotai + Harold Borup + Los Skarnales + Mikey & The Drags + More

Yes, folks, it’s now Friday, January 11th, and against all odds, the weekend is indeed upon us. And yes, there’s plenty happening, and a lot of it’s good, especially this evening. Here’s what sounds/looks cool to me…

Watch This Now: Knights of the Fire Kingdom’s “Chinese Dragon”

Sometimes I dread checking the Webmail the morning, fearing the flood of label/PR emails that’ve come in over the past 24 hours or so and cringing when I see stuff about the weekend just past that I totally dropped the ball on. Sometimes, though, that morning email brings awesomely cool things to my Inbox…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: False Idols + Peloton + A Sea Es + The Temper Trap + Two Star Symphony + More

Start of the weekend, folks, and yeah, it’s looking like a damn busy one, kicking off tonight, Friday, October 26th, and rolling on from there. Here’s what’s up for this evening…

Today: Houston SunBurn Festival 2012 Hits Downtown

Just in case you thought the HPMAs were the only music festival-type thing going on in Downtown this weekend… Got word earlier in the week about a new(?) deal…

Peloton Premieres New Video, Right Here

I swear, the more I hear of new-ish noisy, messy, too-smart-for-their-own-good rockers {Peloton}, the more I love ’em. They’re like a holdover from those mid-’90s days when a band could play music that was full-on noise, all sharp-edged guitars, crushing, bottom-of-the-sea bass…

Yr. (Belated) Weekend: The Suffers B-Day + Beer Fest + The Illegal Wiretaps + Mama Tried + Holder + Peloton + More

Damn. Blew it completely last night, sorry; I’m currently in the midst of handling some family-related things, and while I’d planned to post something for Friday, it sadly just didn’t work out. sigh. So here it is now Saturday, June 9th

FPSF 2012 Rundown, Pt. 4: Fitz and The Tantrums + Harts of Oak + Sundress + Jody Seabody + Primus + Small Sounds + More

And here we are, y’all, back yet again with the final pile of previews/whatever-you-wanna-call-’ems for the right-around-the-corner Free Press Summerfest this coming Saturday & Sunday — which, by the by, is where yours truly will be tomorrow & the next day…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Ghost Town Electric + Peloton + Runaway Sun + 13 Black Coffins + Vestibule + More

It’s Friday, June 1st, y’all, and while we’re teeting on the edge of Summerfest madness ’round these parts, there’s still other good stuff going on. Before I get to the “official” shows, though, I wanted to mention that I’ve heard rumors about at least two “secret” shows going on tonight, so keep your eyes peeled for those…

Friday Heaviness: New Music from Omotai & New Video from Peloton

In recent weeks the kindly folks in {Omotai} and {Peloton} (okay, “folk,” in the form of bassist Melissa (Lonchambon) Ryan, who plays in both bands) sent me some of their latest music, and seeing as I freaking love Omotai and am heartily impressed by Peloton…

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…

Pour One Out, Y’all: Bright Men of Learning & Sharks and Sailors Have Their Last Hurrah

sigh. The music scene in this city, as anybody who observes it for longer than six months or so, has a lifecycle all its own. Bands pop up, bands mutate into other bands, bands leave town, bands come to town (and yes, that one’s as much a mystery to me as it is to you…)

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…

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…

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. 2: BestFest + Literary Greats + Wine Fest + Peloton + Moon Tower B-Day + Mix Master Mike + More

Holy shit, there is a lot going on tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 24th. I can barely wrap my head around all of it, seriously, so I’m going to have to just hit the highlights, y’all. The biggie, of course, is the Houston Press Best of Houston BestFest

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…

Coming Up: Co-Pilot Leads an Atmospheric, Heavy Blowout, This Saturday

Another extremely cool thing schedule for this Saturday, August 6th{Co-Pilot} guitarist Brandon Lemons has put together an awesome, awesome show over at The Mink

Peloton, Peloton

I first took a listen to three-man instro-sludge-metal outfit Peloton’s self-titled debut EP on a whim, really, just curious to see what they sounded like. I’d missed seeing them a while back, and they’d come highly recommended…

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…

A Night of Heavy, Loud, Metal Music, Coming Up This Weekend at The Mink

Got a very cool show coming up this Friday, March 5th at The Mink that I wanted to mention before the weekend madness is upon us… Mink booking honcho Brandon and Jaron from {Fight Pretty} have put together an awesome lineup…
