Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: the last place you look + Knights of the Fire Kingdom + Vinal Edge Opening + Babelfishh + More

It’s Saturday now, July 7th, and there’s nearly as much cool, cool stuff going on today as there was yesterday. Here goes: Nava’s Beardy B-Day Bash, featuring the last place you look, Nothingmore, & Recovery Room @ Warehouse Live (Studio) Ah, yeah. I swear, those guys in the last place you look are flat-out great, […]

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Bright Men of Learning + listenlisten + The Business + Holy Fiction + D.R.I. + More

Well, it’s Saturday now, March 10th, and once again, there’s plenty going on — hell, more than yesterday, if anything. Here goes…

Pour One Out, Y’all: Bright Men of Learning & Sharks and Sailors Have Their Last Hurrah

sigh. The music scene in this city, as anybody who observes it for longer than six months or so, has a lifecycle all its own. Bands pop up, bands mutate into other bands, bands leave town, bands come to town (and yes, that one’s as much a mystery to me as it is to you…)

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Radiohead + Other Lives + Shearwater + Flogging Molly + Young Girls + Hank Schyma + More

Hey, all — on to Day 2 of your weekend (Saturday, March 3rd, specifically), and it’s another good one. Before I get into it, though, I wanted to mention something about this year’s Vans Warped Tour

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Peloton + Omotai + The Fox Derby (Rev’d!) + Poor Pilate + George Baba + More

Yes, folks, it’s now Friday, February 17th, and don’t let the rain get you down, because there’s a ton of stuff going on tonight, a lot of which is very, very cool. I’ll get right to it…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Main St. Block Party + Something Fierce + CounterCrawl + Indian Jewelry + More

It’s looking like one hell of a Saturday (January 28th, that is), y’all. Not only is there the “biggie” of the bunch, the Main Street Block Party, but there’s also a ton of other stuff going on besides…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: the last place you look + Adelaine + AThousandColours + Suffers + Sergio Trevino + More

Rolling up on the evening of Saturday, January 7th, now, and there’s definitely some good stuff going on. Here’s what I think looks badass…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: FOLXMAS + Rock the Shelter + Benefit For Jared + More

And now, it’s Sunday, December 18th, and what with some folks (like, erm, me) being off work, there’s still lots of stuff going on. First up, though, I wanted to mention the Anti-Christ Mass XIV show…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: BestFest + Dig Dug + Elliot’s B-Day + Binarium + Wine Fest + More

Sunday coming up — September 25th, to be precise — and somewhat surprisingly, it’s pretty damn busy, at least for a Sunday… Of course, tomorrow night’s the second day of the still-cool Houston Press BestFest

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: BestFest + Literary Greats + Wine Fest + Peloton + Moon Tower B-Day + Mix Master Mike + More

Holy shit, there is a lot going on tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 24th. I can barely wrap my head around all of it, seriously, so I’m going to have to just hit the highlights, y’all. The biggie, of course, is the Houston Press Best of Houston BestFest

Tonight: football, etc. + Reverse the Curse + Pswingset + Yes, Inferno + Square & Compass, at Vinyl Junkie

While I’ll admit that part of me is desperately wishing I could hang with Mos Def & Talib Kweli at the House of Blues tonight…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: football, etc. (Reviewed!) + Koffin Kats + Fat Tony + SXSW Overflow + Sean Reefer + More

Apologies (as always) for the lateness of this one; spent the last two days having Family Time at the Rodeo (where I had to attempt to explain the origin of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday to an annoyed South African carny) & out at the Blue Bell factory in Brenham (which I’d never been to before)…

Roky Moon & BOLT Prepare to Burst Forth Into the World — Be One of the Lucky Few to Bear Witness

A bit late on this, unfortunately, but I wanted to give these guys a shout-out, even still… Back on Monday, the cool, cool people in Roky Moon & BOLT officially announced the kickoff show for their forthcoming West Coast tour, which’ll start Fri., April 8th

Tonight: Occult Detective Club + Something Fierce + The Busy Kids + Noguey, at Vinyl Junkie

Tuesday, March 1st, and there’s some awesome pop-punk goodness going on tonight up at Vinyl Junkie. Denton’s Occult Detective Club are the headliners, and they’re pretty damn good, I have to say, in a seriously Ramones-y vein…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Too $hort + Devin The Dude + Sleep Bellum Sonno + Perfect Future + football, etc. + Binarium 024 + More

Rolling on into Sunday, January 16th, and there’s still some good stuff to do for the weekend; here goes: Honestly, I had no idea Too $hort was even still around…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Muhammad Ali + Hell City Kings + White Rhino + Darwin’s Finches + Billy Wayde + ECHO Opening + More

Night #2 of a pretty darn good weekend coming up — even if it’s no NYE, Saturday, January 8th, still has plenty of good shit going on. Here goes…

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…

This Weekend: Temporary Insanity Roars into Houston

Damn, damn, damn — I’d fully meant to post about this before now, but things got away from me, as they tend to do…sorry ’bout that, y’all. At any rate, following in this coming weekend’s “holy shit, how is all of this going on?” theme…

Vinyl Junkie, Now Open

Very cool. It’s always struck me as weird just how few honest-to-God indie music stores this city has; I mean, we’re Houston, for crying out loud, the fourth-largest city in the damn country, and yet I can think of maybe eight record shops in the whole freaking Houston metro area that sell punk or indie-rock stuff…

Tonight: The Futureheads (MP3) + The Soft Pack (MP3) + Accept + Andrew WK + Art Institute + Vinyl Junkie + More

What the hell? It’s a Wednesday, for crying out loud, but tonight (October 13th) is looking like a Friday, instead (or at least a Sunday). There’s quite a bit going on, and a fair amount of it’s good. Here’s what I like, anyway…
