Tonight: Action Bronson Serves It Up at Warehouse Live

Harrison Ford is an Action Bronson fan. No, seriously; granted, I’ve got no clue whether he likes Bronson’s music, but in a recent GQ interview (which you should absolutely read, by the way), the bullshit-hating, laconic actor apparently likes Fuck, That’s Delicious, Bronsons food-themed show…

Yes, friends, neighbors, Houstonianites, it’s just about time again for the “other” half of the bi-annual music festival extravaganza that’s known either as the Yes, Indeed! Music Festival or Madness on Main Street, both put on by super-organized people Jason Smith and Phil “Bassman Pep” Peterson

An Ending & Two Beginnings: Pegstar Bids Farewell to Fitzgerald’s & Fitzgerald’s Gets Reborn

Ever since the news first broke about local booking maestros Pegstar opening their very own purpose-built venue, the sweet-looking White Oak Music Hall, it’s felt like it was only a matter of time before the other shoe dropped…

Almost Down to the Wire: Vote for the HPMAs Now, If You Haven’t Already

Yep, I’m waaaay late to this party, unfortunately, but not quite too late, which is always good. The ever-excellent Houston Press Music Awards are still open for voting, right up until August 12th (i.e., tomorrow), at 11:59PM (i.e., midnight). If you have not yet cast your vote — you can only do it once, sorry — well, you’re in luck…

Come And Take It (The Funny, I Mean), This Weekend

Generally speaking, I’m terrible when it comes to comedy. Don’t get me wrong; I like comedy, it cracks me up. Unlike music, though, I just don’t follow it like some people do, y’know? I’ve got friends I swear know and have seen or heard every comic working professionally today; my comedic knowledge basically includes stuff I listened to in high school…

Live: Band of Skulls/SACCO

Back in the spring, I was pretty swamped, but I made a concerted effort to get out and see some very good shows, like this one, where Band of Skulls and opener SACCO made a great to of it up at Warehouse Live. I have a good friend named Sacco — Chris Sacco, from the Houston band dUNE.TX, to be specific — so when I first saw the name…

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…

Holy Freaking Whatever Fest, Y’all (Coming August 9th & 10th)

Yeah, yeah; I know, I still need to get my damn writeup online about this year’s awesome FPSF (soon, I swear by all that is good and holy…), but while you’re waiting for that — as I’m sure you all are, with bated breath and everything — there’s been some badass-sounding news this week about another music festival, which will be having its inaugural run August 9th and 10th

Live: Catch Fever/American Fangs/Featherface/BLSHS

Houston, yes, we’re rocking these days! There must have been four concerts I wanted to attend on this particular night, but I chose the Catch Fever Shiny Eyes CD release party…

A Few Thoughts on Concrete Blonde, iPads, and Entertainment vs. Artistry

Earlier tonight, I was up at Warehouse Live, watching and listening to Johnette Napolitano, quasi-iconic singer/guitarist for Concrete Blonde. And yeah, she sounded great…

Wow. Tonight’s the first night of the weekend, Friday, December 21st, and it’s not only the first day of Christmas/holiday vacation for some of us (okay, fine; mine was yesterday) but also — if you listen to people who think science is all made-up nonsense but paranoid ideas about aliens and magnetic pole reversal…

[UPDATED!] Giveaway/Upcoming Show Time: The Manichean Releases New Album LOVERS, This Saturday (and You Could Be There!)

Yeah, where’re still a few days away from it, but I didn’t want to miss out on mentioning it amidst all the Thanksgiving madness… This coming Saturday, November 24th, awesomely dramatic, utterly intense art-rockers {The Manichean}

Bad News Time: Guided by Voices Cancels Houston Date

Dammit, dammit, dammit. Just heard the news tonight that Guided by Voices, that awesomely shambolic psych/pop/whatever band from Dayton, OH, who are currently playing with their Bee Thousand-era “classic” lineup…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: The Tontons + Featherface (Rev’d!) + Blackmarket Syndicate + The Mink Last Call + More

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…

Tonight: Grandfather Child Hits the Road, at Warehouse Live

It may just be me, but it seems like it’s been awful quiet lately over in the {Grandfather Child} camp. For a year or two there, Lucas Gorham, Ryan Chavez, Robert Ellis, and Geoffrey Muller seemed to be freaking everywhere

Holy wow, y’all. It’s Friday, July 6th, which means the weekend’s started, and damn, it’s a busy, busy, busy one, in the best possible way. Before we dive into it, though, I just want to give a heartfelt thumbs-up to {The Tontons}

Live: Say Anything

I can’t recall the last time I saw Say Anything live — it must’ve been at least three years ago, maybe more — but I finally got to see them again in April, the first time since then, and let me tell you, they put on a heck of a show…

And My ’90s Indie-Rock Soul Rejoices: GBV Come to Town & Afghan Whigs Release New Music

Got word about two different little bits of good news today, and since both hit that same general nostalgia-fueled ’90s indie-rock region of my black little heart, I figured I’d lump ’em in together. First off, I’m psyched as hell to hear that the reunited Guided By Voices will be coming back through Houston…

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

Good News on The Eastern Sea Front: Show Back On

Okay, so it wasn’t ever truly “off,” but yeah, I was a little worried when the previously-scheduled show with The Eastern Sea, Quiet Company, & {The Literary Greats} was in limbo…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Cursive + Cymbals Eat Guitars + Dick Dale + John Lefler + Balance and Composure + More

Got plenty going on this weekend, y’all, starting with tonight, Friday, April 13th — and holy crap, I just realized what today is — but before I get into that, there’s some show-related news to impart to those who’re into this sort of thing…

Tonight: fun. & Avalanche City @ Warehouse Live (with Videos)

Okay, so after their song “We Are Young” ended up in a Super Bowl commercial, I’ll admit that fun. don’t need my help in terms of promotion, but hey, what can I say?…

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. 3: The Lotus Effect @ Warehouse Live

Sunday coming up (January 22nd, to be exact), and no offense to anybody else who’s playing, but there’s only one show I’m really psyched about. I honestly wasn’t sure this one was going to happen…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Mountain Goats + In Flames + Alvin Fielder + Square & Compass + Megafauna + More

Back around to another Friday (January 20th, this time) and yep, busy as ever. I’m personally pretty damn psyched about a couple of tonight’s shows, but first some update-y things…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Literary Greats + Finnegan + Quiet Company + Balaclavas + Jealous Creatures + Wheel Workers + More

First night of a busy, busy weekend, y’all — tonight, Friday, January 13th, is packed full of awesomely cool things to do/hear/see. And yes, I know I’m running late; sorry ’bout that, folks, but that’s what spending a day/evening with an unwell toddler does to you…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Joe & Alicia Get Married + Haven Benefit + Honky Tonk Blood Brothers + The Illegal Wiretaps + More

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Montrose Winter Social + Linus Pauling Quartet + Rachael Yamagata + Adelaine + More

Alrighty, y’all, it’s now Saturday, December 3rd, and it’s time to hold on to your shit, because today/tonight is where it gets a little bit crazy. Before I get to that, though, I wanted to mention a few changes/odd things…

Tonight: The Tontons Tour Kickoff + The Dead Revolt, Interviewed

Quick, quick, quick, y’all. Tonight (Thurs., December 1st) is not only the first show in a while for cool rockers {The Dead Revolt} — whom writer/musician Jason Smith interviewed…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Concrete Blonde + Anthrax + Ghetto Dinner + Fiskadoro + Boots Electric (MP3!) + More
