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. (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…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Spring Forward (Plus Reviews!) + South By Due East + Los Skarnales Tour Kickoff + More

Running out of time yet again, unfortunately, so I’m going to have be kinda brief about what all’s going on today/tonight, Saturday, March 12th… I had been hoping to be able to make it out to the Spring Forward Music Festival

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. 2: Pik-N-Pak Reunion Night #2 + Fiskadoro + Metal Summit 3 + The Kimonos + Winter Wallace + More

Good night coming up tonight, mostly due to the Pik-N-Pak Reunion deal, but also because of some other shows going on ’round the same time. Get on out the house; here’s where I’d recommend…

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. 1: Suspects + Somosuno + Blackmarket Syndicate + Warsaw Opening + Dead Frail Honesty + More

There’s quite a bit of cool stuff going on this weekend, but I’ve got to break things up & just hit tonight’s highlights right now, I’m afraid… Here’s what looks good to me for tonight, Friday, June 25th: {The Suspects}! Ah, I love those guys, truly I do…

Yr. Weekend: LIMB (Reviewed!) + B L A C K I E (Reviewed!) + Raekwon + Paris Falls + Screwtape + Resonant Interval + Tool + More

It’s shaping up to be quite a handful of days, coming up. Starting tonight, Fri., June 18th, there’s good, good, practically unmissable shit literally each night…

B L A C K I E, Spred Luv

There is nothing about B L A C K I E that is not singular. Despite his undeniable affinity and devotion to his native geography and his home in Chemical City (Pasadena) in particular, the solo endeavor of the man born Michael LaCour stands out as stark as the all-caps-with-spaces typography of his name…

LIMB, The Shape of Punk for Some

The only time I’d ever seen or heard LIMB before now, the “band” consisted solely of primary instigator James Templeton, a laptop, a vintage-looking keyboard, a mixer, and a bunch of effects pedals. And while it was interesting, definitely, I can’t claim that it blew me away…

Summerfest Rundown, Pt. 1: Hell City Kings + Givers + Rusted Shut + Saviours + The Small Sounds + Cro-Mags + More

Okay, so if you pay any attention at all to music-related happenings in this city — unlike, apparently, the folks who run those Washington Ave. bars that are right across the street from one of the best bastions of live music in H-town, and the guy who writes about ’em with a straight face (see Jeff Balke‘s excellent rejoinder here) — you’ll know that this coming Saturday & Sunday, June 5th & 6th, is the much-anticipated second installment…
