Yr. Week, Pt. 2: Bad Religion + Elvis Costello + Keeton Coffman + Shane’s BDay + Lincoln Durham + KTRU x SoS + Only Beast + Craig Kinsey + Eisley + More

This weekend, y’all — I mean, seriously. There’s so much going on that I’m having to split it up and skip a whole bunch of stuff…or else I’ll never have enough damn time to post about any of it. Not a bad problem to have, all things considered. So here’s what’s happening just tonight, Friday, October 14th

Tonight: Rock Out for Literacy with Charity Gigs (and Only Beast, A Sundae Drive, Fire Moth, and Brand New Hearts, Too)

For it being a measly Thursday (July 17th, specifically), there is a whole hell of a lot of cool stuff going on — The Crystal Method are at Stereo Live tonight, for one, The Neighbourhood is at Bayou Music Center with White Arrows, and {The Wiggins} and {Deep Cuts} are playing at Walter’s

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…

Tomorrow: MS Understood Benefit Full of Awesomeness Up at Fitz

There’s a small pile of benefit-type shows coming up, and hey, each one’s excellent and worthy in its own unique way, certainly. I must confess, though, to being somewhat biased towards one particular benefit concert going on tomorrow, Saturday, April 5th

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Chase Hamblin & The Roustabouts (Rev’d!) + Murder the Stout + Clouseaux + The March Divide + More

Getting a late start tonight, unfortunately; sorry ’bout that. It’s Friday, March 29th, y’all, and there’s definitely some good stuff going on tonight, even starting right now. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: St. Patrick’s Day at the Mucky Duck + The Dead Rabbits + The Zombies + The Skatalites + George Strait + More

Ouch. I am sunburned and in pain, with a back that’s been tweaked over a week spent flying and driving and chasing children and sleeping in unfamiliar beds, and I’m ready to sit down and hang out at the house for a while. Today, however, there’s quite a bit of awesomeness happening…

Yr. (Abbreviated) Weekend, Pt. 2: Red Cross Benefit + Stevie & Tara Benefit + Ruiners + DJ Sun + Indian Jewelry + Metalachi + More

Okay, so I probably should have written this up last night, rather than opting for sleep and thus being forced to do this where I am now. Which is sitting in a hotel in Galveston, trying to type quietly in the dark as Munchkin #1 tries to whisper Munchkin #2 to sleep…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Benefit for The Freakouts + Tax the Wolf + Sleeping Ancient + Ska vs. Punk + Black Coffee + More

A little later than I’d hoped, today; ended up having an, um, interesting day of running errands, being barred from apparently-private parks, and fishing misfired arrows out of the neighbor’s yard with a rake, so I’m a bit behind on the show writeup for today, Saturday, December 15th. Even still, there’s time to get out […]

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: When We Ruled H-Town Pt. 2 + Jaill (MP3s!) + The Coathangers + White Linen Night + Houston SunBurn + More

Day Two of the weekend, Saturday, August 4th, and there’s a ton going on, naturally. I’ve gotta keep it somewhat brief tonight, so let’s just get into it, eh?…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Wheel Workers (Rev’d!) + Alkari + Harold Borup + Escatones + Rivers + More

First “real” day of the weekend today, Friday, June 29th, and while it’s not quite as jam-packed as last night was with good stuff, there’s still plenty going on…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Manichean at The Alley + Free Radicals + The Tyburn Jig + Sheer Terror + More

It’s Saturday, June 16th, and unfortunately, the little guy decided not to take a nice, long nap this afternoon, so I’ve got to keep this one a little on the brief side, too. I didn’t want to miss out on tonight’s shows, though, because there’s some awesome stuff going on. Here we go…

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: Mills-McCoin’s Circus + Kina Grannis + Scott H. Biram + SPC Anniversary + Spring Fandango + More

On to Saturday, now, April 14th, and if my goddamn HTML editor (thanks so fucking much, HyperEdit) will quit freaking crashing on me every 20 minutes, this’ll hopefully be an actual timely little mid-weekend writeup-type thing…

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

On to Saturday, Marc 24th today, and there’s plenty going on; I’ve got to keep it brief, I’m afraid, but here’s what sounds gool to me…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Wild Moccasins + The Tontons + Art Institute + The Dead Revolt + More

Dang. I’d originally planned to get a lot more posting & reviewing & whatnot done this week, since I’ve been off the whole damn time, but family stuff’s intervened, like sleepover trips to Surfside or last-of-the-year visits to the Children’s Museum…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: the last place you look + mr. Gnome + Scratch Acid + A Sundae Drive + More

sigh. Super-duper-extra late this evening, I’m afraid; it’s been a hell of a day/week, with computer issues on multiple fronts and seemingly every second of the day/night plotted out in advance, so I’m only getting to this now, sadly…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Jealous Creatures + Street Dogs + Murder the Stout + Fallcore XI + Wheel Workers + More

Late again, I know — sorry about that, y’all, but the family stuff’s really knocked me out this week, which is why I’m typing this late in the evening, while watching Cupcake Wars & the so-far-excellent Rare Exports

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Lords of the Universe + Illegal Wiretaps + Bang Bangz + Featherface + Chimaira + More

Coming into Saturday, October 29th, and it’s even more packed-tightly than Friday evening was. Plenty, plenty, plenty going on, not even counting all the haunted houses & parties & whatever…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Wild Moccasins + listenlisten + Jealous Creatures (Rev’d!) + Art Institute + More

Moving on into Saturday, October 8th, and it’s another busy-ass day, seriously… Some of what’s going on I’ve already mentioned, like the tour kickoff show up at Fitzgerald’s with {The Wild Moccasins}

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Rocktoberfest + Tontons + Colour Revolt + Ume + Roky Erickson + More

Saturday, October 1, as of a half-hour or so ago, and there’s plenty of good stuff going on, for sure. Before I get into that, though, there’ve been a small slew of changes and cancellations to the schedule…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Two Star Symphony + Co-Pilot + The Small Sounds + Square and Compass + White Linen + More

Holy crap, is there a lot going on tomorrow, Saturday, August 6th; there’s so much good stuff happening that I can’t entirely keep track of it, honestly… I’m gonna have to blaze through it somewhat, but that’s kinda-sorta okay…

The Tyburn Jig, High Noon Moon

Welcome to the Wild New West, folks. Despite their English-derived name, with High Noon Moon, The Tyburn Jig have carved what sure seems to me like a brand-new little musical niche; they’ve wedged themselves in this strange, half-spooky corner…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Something Fierce (Reviewed!) + The Hold Steady + Joe Pug + Del Tha Funky Homosapien + More

Man. It’s looking to be a crazy, crazy weekend, so I didn’t want to miss giving at least a brief rundown of what all’s going on, starting with tonight, Fri., April 1st

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 (In Brief): Featherface + Ladysmith Black Mambazo + Progressive Collective + Freezerfest 4 + “When We Ruled H-Town” + More

Don’t have a lot of time to go into the details, unfortunately, but there’s plenty of cool stuff to do this weekend, should you be out & about in the freezing cold winds/rain/possible snow. Yours truly will be, um, a little out of the area for the time being (quite possibly some place warmer), but hey…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: listenlisten (LP release) + Two Star Symphony + Bright Men of Learning + The Tyburn Jig + Sabra Laval + More

Day #2 of the weekend, Sat., December 4th, and damn, it’s a busy one… Can’t talk about all of it, unfortunately, but I’ll hit the highlights, below…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Ghoulsfest + Ka-Power!Ween + The Eastern Sea + Colour Revolt + The Tyburn Jig + Co-Pilot + More

Holy crap, there are a lot of things going on today (Saturday, October 30th). So many, in fact, that it almost feels like there’s no way I can even begin to write about ’em. Damn… And yet, I have to try; here goes…
