The Wiggins, Greater Minds

Jon Read may not have been born in the sweaty, swampy, dirty depths of Houston, Texas, but the city fits him like a (tattered, weird-smelling) glove. There’s just something about that raw, ripped-open, messy, muddy sound Read’s crafted over the course of his 15 years or so of his musical career…

WE LIKE THINGS 2012: Telling you all about the awesome things you (maybe) missed last year.

Yes, another year gone by, and another (ridiculously-late) set of top ten lists from us folks here at SCR of all of the good/amazing/awesome things we ran across in 2012. Your intrepid writerly-type people have gone through literally thousands…

The Wiggins, The Myth of Man

Believe it or not, the songs on The Wiggins’ latest full-length, The Myth of Man, are pop songs. Trust me on this; once you scrape away the noise and grime and work your way past one-man-band…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Indian Jewelry (Rev’d!) + The Wiggins + A Place To Bury Strangers (MP3!) + Ben Sollee + Public Image Ltd + More

sigh. Another late, late Friday (November 2nd) evening, and I’m running far beyond due to having promised our ailing 8-year-old a took-way-too-long game of Scrabble. Apologies, all, for this being so damn late; I’ll have to keep this short…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Austin Rhoads Benefit + Muhammad Ali + The Wiggins (Video!) + Hearts of Animals + More

I’ve been a bit on the distracted side this week, trying to catch up from my time away — for some reason, I’d assumed I’d have lots of time on my hands in the evenings while up in Cambridge, and that didn’t happen, which was very cool, but means I didn’t get stuff done…

Also Saturday: All Dread Set @ Cardoza Fine Art

And now, yet another thing to do this coming Saturday, January 14th — seriously, that one single night is breaking my freaking heart… This one’s a wee bit more on the art/experimental side than the rest, I’d say, so heads up, fans of all things strange and oddball…

Yr. Weekend: Quintron + FPH NYE Cataclysm + CSMDP + The Suspects + Bonanzarama + More

Argh. And now, I’m sick. I’d planned to post about all the festivities going on this weekend, but feeling as shitty as I do, I’m going to have to settle for hitting a handful of the big ones and leaving it at that. Here goes…

Tonight: Atmosphere + Jacuzzi Boys (Rev’d!) + Blueprint + The Handsomes + More

Hey, all — been offline most of this week, sadly, trying to get many, many things handled on various fronts, but I didn’t want to let tonight (Thurs., September 22nd) totally slip through the cracks, because there’re some very cool shows going on…

Next Saturday: Raise Some Fun(ds) with DiverseWorks (& Jana Hunter, & Wild Moccasins, etc.)

Gotta love those DiverseWorks folks — the place has brought forth some truly, truly amazing things, things you’re not likely to find/see/hear anywhere else in this city, and they do it while remaining down-to-earth…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Mathletes Album Release (Rev’d!) + Rock the Bells + Bummerfest + Fringe Fest + More

There’s plenty going on this weekend, but I’m afraid yours truly will be a bit occupied and is going to miss it, so I’m going to try to hit ’em all briefly, at least. It kills me, actually, because on Saturday (August 13th, that is), in particular…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Rock Baby Rock It Day 2 + Young Girls + Hearts of Animals + Sade + Don’t Fuck With Texas + More

Saturday, now, July 23rd, and there’s so much going on I can hardly keep track of it… Tonight’s Night #2 of DJ Big E‘s 11th annual Rock Baby Rock It fest, and I have to say that this evening’s a bit more enticing, at least to me…

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…

Tonight: Mantis (Video!) + Sing Your Life + Nobunny + #RSAApproved + Saints & Tzadiks + More

Some good, good stuff going on tonight (Wed., February 16th), so I didn’t want to let it slip past without at least a mention… First & foremost, I’m psyched to see that the band Mantis has crept stealthily back out of the dark…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Indian Jewelry + Roky Moon & BOLT Do-Over + Girls Rock Camp + Temporary Insanity II + Jesse Dayton + More

Day 2 of a busy-as-hell weekend… Today (Saturday, December 18th) is a pretty massive one, particularly on the local front — and believe me when I say that that’s nothing to sneeze at. Anybody who thinks nothing worth listening to…

Needless Records

Okay, I’ll be honest: I’m not entirely sure this label’s based in Houston, but it sure seems like they are, at least. (If not, let me know, and I’ll take it off the list…) They’ve released stuff by {The Wiggins}, which is a damn fine thing…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Lightning Bolt + Indian Jewelry + football,etc. + Bright Men + Darwin’s Finches + Tread + HPMA News + More

Yep, it’s that time again, and there’s quite a bit going on this weekend, starting tonight, Friday, July 9th. Assuming the weather holds, it’s looking like it could be pretty badass. Before we go there, though, I’d like to point y’all over to…

Tonight: The Wild Moccasins Tour Kickoff (Reviewed!) + Muhammad Ali + Spain Colored Orange + The Watermarks + More

Caveat, caveat, caveat, before I mention anything else: since every freaking road in this city currently appears to be flooding, I make no guarantees that anything scheduled for this evening will be happening. Seriously, if you can get home from work right now, you’re doing pretty well..

Memorial Day Rock @ Khon’s: Fugitive Kind + Muhammad Ali + The Wiggins

Memorial Day, tomorrow (Mon., May 31st, obviously), and despite the distinct possibility of being overwhelmed by the barbecueing and swimming and picnicking and family and remembering and all, don’t fret…

The Wiggins, Greatest Apes EP

Though the dog days of summer are past, there’s a certain musical reddening still available to us — the Wiggins’ Greatest Apes EP is a summer record in the best of ways: it’s loud, euphoric, and indifferent to taste…
