White Supremacy Unaware of Its Own Existence

When blacks respond to continued injustice by peacefully protesting, many white people are annoyed, and say things like, “Ok, enough already,” or “They’re the ones with the racism problem, we’re already over it.” USA TODAY asked, “After Zimmerman Verdict, Can Nation Heal Racial Rift?”…

The Bright Light Social Hour Rocks Out for Wendy Davis

While I do try to keep the political stuff a little low-key on this blog, sometimes I can’t help it. So, here we go: I, like a lot of folks down here in Texas, apparently, spent Tuesday night (and parts of Wednesday) glued to the TV/Internet as Senator Wendy Davis

Locked Up in MoCo: SCR Contributor Aaron Brown Speaks About Being Arrested While at Ted Cruz Rally

Okay, so this doesn’t happen real often… A little over a week ago, on Saturday, July 28th, we got word that Aaron Brown, one of our SCR writers and our de facto political blogger, had been arrested

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Adelaine + The Soldier Thread + Open The Taps + Blues Museum Fundraiser + More

Yeah, I know — actually early on posting this one, even though tomorrow (i.e., Sunday, February 12th) is probably the lightest of the weekend. But hey, quality makes up for quantity sometimes, y’know, so here we go…

It’s Time to Take City Hall

I’ve lived in this city for two decades now, which is literally four times longer than anywhere else I’ve lived in my whole damn life. I grew up in a lot of places, but this place is my home; I’m a Houstonian. Believe it or not, I love it here…

For The Kids: Holy Fiction Plays with the Dulles Middle School Symphony Orchestra, Next Month

Got word about a very cool-sounding show coming up at the start of next month — Saturday, February 4th, specifically — and wanted to mention it up here so maybe-maybe folks will spread the word somewhat. The truly excellent {Holy Fiction}, whom I admire the heck out of…

Welcome to the Fightback: The Internet (and The White House) Wakes Up and Takes on SOPA/PIPA

Hey, folks. Those who visit the site regularly might’ve noticed that yesterday Space City Rock looked a little different (at least, erm, from 9AM or so ’til 8PM); specifically, it looked black, with words something like…

Go Get ‘Em, Hitch!

What if Christopher Hitchens was wrong? Suppose that immediately after exhaling his last bit of air at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston on the night of December 15th, rather than seeing a beautiful yet simplistic cut-to-black, not unlike The Sopranos series finale…

Haunt Wall Street, This Evening

If you read this site at all regularly, you’ll probably know by now that I (meaning Jeremy; I definitely do not speak for all our writers & contributors) am a big fan of the Occupy Together

Occupy Houston, Today (UPDATE: And Beyond, Too…)

I’m going to dive (briefly) into the political ocean here, folks, so be warned… In case you have yet to see it, today marked the beginning of Houston’s very own Occupy Together-themed protest…

Be a Hero: Give a Dollar.

If you’ve heard about the horrible injustices going on in Burma, you might think there is a lot of action being taken to help the incredibly oppressed Burmese people. I know I thought so, but to my surprise and disappointment, almost all of the advocacy campaigns we found…

Space City Rock Goes Inside the Campaign for Governor

2010 Texas Gubernatorial Race: In our first-ever SCR Election Preview, the pubishing/editorial staff of Space City Rock would like to officially endorse Bill White for Governor of Texas. Furthermore, we call on Rick Perry to debate his opponents in an open forum…

The Progressive Forum: Presenting Speakers with Sack!

To a sold-out crowd of raging liberals in Houston on Wednesday, a former conservative probably got the best reception anyone of her ilk could ever hope to garner from this city’s well-intentioned, aristocratic revolutionaries. In my humble opinion, Arianna Huffington is a PILF (the “P” stands for pundit)…
