Help The Suffers Make A Record, Right Now

It’s been a big, big year for ska-soul outfit {The Suffers}, and from where I sit, they fully, truly deserve it; they’re a damn fine band, and they’ve worked their asses off to get to where they are. Despite the ridiculous highs of 2015, though, they’re not done yet — next up, they want to make their first full-length album. And they want you and me to help ’em do it…

FPSF 2015 Rundown, Pt. 3: Seratones + Steve Angello + St. Vincent + Freeman + The Suffers + The Band of Heathens + GTA + Ben Kweller + Tears for Fears + Weezer

Annnnnd here we are, once again, with the third installment of SCR‘s forever(?)-annual FPSF rundown deal, where Jason Smith and Jeremy Hart yammer and gush about a randomly-selected pile of bands that just so happen to be playing this coming Saturday, June 6th, and Sunday, June 7th, over at the festival’s backup venue…

Missed The Suffers on Letterman? Then Here You Go…

So, if you live in a small hole in the ground and only communicate with squirrels or something (or alternatively, if you just plain hate music and joy), you may not have heard that H-town’s own awesome soul-rocksteady crew {The Suffers} just happened to make their big-time network TV debut this past Monday, on The Late Show With David Letterman

Live: REI Summer Fest

With the majority of Houston’s social circles out and about, seeing and being seen wearing white at White Linen Night in The Heights, it wasn’t a huge surprise that REI Summer Fest became the ultimate (nearly-) private party of the weekend. For a little background, “REI” stands for “Real Estate Investing.” During the day, the attendees went to what I assume was…

The Suffers, Make Some Room

You can’t resist The Suffers; seriously, it’s impossible. Their music is just so infectious, so warm and mellow it’s like one of those rare perfect spring days when the sky’s bright and blue and cloudless, the weather’s warm but not yet hot, and all feels right with the world…

Texas Takes Over NYC, Today

For our East Coast friends, I figured I’d mention a very, very cool CMJ-related thing going on today (that is, Thursday, October 23rd). Indefatigable photog-turned-promoter Mark C. Austin‘s Convoy Group is among the organizers of the third-ever Texas Takeover CMJ showcase, and damn, it sounds pretty awesome…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: A Sundae Drive + Catch Fever + The Suffers + DJ Shadow + Cut Chemist + ’90s Burned Out + More

Alright, y’all — I’m still feeling like hell, but I’m at least vertical now (relatively, anyway), and I didn’t want to not mention the cool things going on this evening, Saturday, September 20th. I may have to keep the blather brief, but here we go, either way…

Coming Up: Untapped Fest Unfolds This Weekend (And Hey, A Giveaway!)

Alright, people — remember just the other day when I talked about Houston’s current bounty of music-type festivals? Well, another’s happening this weekend, and it promises to be pretty spectacular. This is the third (I think?) year of the Houston edition of the Untapped Festival

Tonight: The Houston Press Music Awards Steal the Show

Yes, yes, yes. Apologies for the quiet these past several days, folks — your humble Editor Guy Jeremy has been off on vacation in Southern California with the fam, seeing more LEGO sculptures than he ever imagined could exist in one place, and frequent writer/photo guy Jason has been computer-less of late due to some very bad technical difficulties. I (Jeremy, that is) am still recuperating somewhat from my sunburn/damaged legs, but nevertheless, tonight, Thursday, August 7th, promises to be pretty dang great…

Live: Paste Untapped Festival Houston

I should know to always leave a little extra time between getting to a show and actually expecting to get in, but as usual, I was running on time instead of early. That nearly made me late — there was quite a line forming at about 4:30…

Color + Sound: Via Colori Rolls Into Downtown, This Weekend

From tomorrow, Saturday, November 23rd, through Sunday, November 24th, downtown Houston will once again play host to one of the coolest, most unique street festivals this city sees out of a fairly big pile of events each year…

Think Like A Photographer: FPSF 2013, Looking Through the Viewfinder

I’m supposed to be on vacation! And here it is July, and I’m finally finding time to write about my Free Press Summer Festival experience. Right after FPSF I headed out on an incredible California and Oregon trip to surprise my sister for her birthday, as well as see…

The Suffers, “Slow It Down”/“Step Aside”

First of all: it’s about damn time. I know The Suffers haven’t been around that long, it’s true, but ever since I first ran across ’em in 2011, I’ve been dying to get my hands on an actual, decent-sounding release. Call me paranoid if you want…

FPSF 2013 Rundown, Pt. 5: The Suffers + Matt & Kim + Geto Boys + The Bronx + Midnight Norma Lane + Orents Stirner + The Postal Service + More

Alright, folks — this is it, right here. We are nearing Go Time for Free Press Summer Festival 2013, and I’m both excited as hell and more than a little freaked out. I’ve never been a big fan of crowds, honestly…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: MS Understood + Our Scene United + Local Live Houston + Young Mammals + The Suffers + The Fox Derby + More

It’s looking like one hell of a day/night today, Saturday, April 6th, so I’ll skip the usual blather and just get right to all the cool things happening. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Bang Bangz + The Fox Derby + A Sundae Drive + Jimmie Dale Gilmore + Humungus + More

sigh. Been a crazy day, y’all — I’m bummed that I completely missed out on the first day of this year’s Haute Wheels Houston food truck festival, especially since they had very cool people like {The Wheel Workers}, {Craig Kinsey}, & {Southern Backtones} playing, dammit…

Tomorrow Night: Help Out Lucas Gorham of Grandfather Child

I’ve gotten info about a bunch of different benefit-type shows lately, and while I fully intend to post about all of ’em at some point, this one really grabbed hold of me, in large part because it’s a benefit for awesome, insanely talented cool dude Lucas Gorham, a mainstay of the Houston scene and the […]

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Suffers + The Ex-Optimists + Action Frank + Pre-Holiday Slaughter + The Blistering Speeds + More

It’s Saturday, December 22nd, now, and yours truly’s just having a quiet night at home, savoring Modern Society giving the middle finger to those pesky Mayans and their goofy prophecies and introducing the 8-year-old to Doctor Who. Been that kind of weekend…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Grandfather Child + The Suffers + the last place you look + B.E. Godfrey + More

Damn; it’s looking like a good weekend, folks. Admittedly, tonight — Fri., August 31st — isn’t looking as jam-packed as tomorrow night, but it’s still pretty great. Here we go…

2012 Houston Press Music Awards, Right Around the Corner (i.e., This Sunday)

Yes, folks, it’s happening this very weekend — this coming Sunday, August 5th, to be exact. I’ve been sadly, sadly remiss in mentioning it, but the 2012 Houston Press Music Awards is indeed looming close…

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

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Featherface + New York City Queens + Snow Patrol + Guilt Party + The Suffers + More

Looking like a crazy, crazy evening tonight, Friday, May 18th, and a damn good one, besides. In the interest of getting this online quickly, though, I’ll skip the chitchat and get right to it…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Alkari (Rev’d!) + Linus Pauling Quartet + Better Block + Benefit for Bill DeGidio + More

On to Saturday, May 12th, and if anything, it looks like there’s more going on today than there was yesterday. Before I get to that, though, I wanted to mention a couple of things. First, in case you didn’t see the very nice {Rocks Off} post about it

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Manichean + Bang Bangz + The Suffers + Now, Now + The Tyburn Jig + 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…
