Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Stars + California Wives (MP3s!) + Holder + B L A C K I E + Wheel Workers + David Ramirez + More

Dang, y’all — late as usual, I’m afraid, but there’s still lots going on tonight, Friday, October 12th. I’ll forego the chitchat, given the untimeliness of this; here we go…

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. 3: The Rocketboys + England in 1819 + White Ghost Shivers + Phul Court Opening + More

And now here we are at Sunday, May 20th, and it’s a little slower than previous nights this weekend; there’re only a couple of things going on that sound good to me, really. Here’s what I’m liking…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Venomous Maximus + Haute Wheels + Black Bananas + More

A bit of a quieter day today (Sunday, May 13th, that is), which makes a little sense, both in that it’s a Sunday and Mother’s Day, and hell, musicians have mothers, too. Well, most of them, at least. There’re a few that I’m pretty sure were hatched in a lab somewhere…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: ZenHill Night + George Clinton + SXSW Overflow + Folk Family Revival + More

Yep, it’s Friday, March 9th, heading into the weekend — a little late, I know, but heck, there’s plenty still going on. Here goes…

Tomorrow: ZenHill Records Night at Fitz

Yep, we’re pretty darn impressed with the good people over at ZenHill Records. It’s partly because, hey, they’re from here and are working to support bands (mostly) from here, and we dig that…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Tontons + Wild Moccasins + listenlisten + Wheel Workers + Young Girls + More

I’ve got a crazy, crazy weekend ahead of me — not involving music, but involving multiple family birthdays — so I’ve got to keep this brief for now, but never fear, there’s a huge pile of good stuff going on this weekend, starting tonight, Fri., February 3rd

2011 Houston Music in Photos

I bought a used Nikon D80 in the summer of 2010 and was instantly discouraged by my photos. It took a lot of reading, looking at others’ photos, adjusting my camera, buying new lenses (most of these are taken with a 35mm f/1.8), and messing around to finally get in a photography groove…

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

Bad News Time: Winter Wallace Passes Out & Gary Crawford Gets Hit by Lightning

Got word late last night from SCR contributor/man-about-town Dre Giles about a couple of tragic/scary things going on with folks in our sprawling, hard-to-pigeonhole scene here, and I wanted to pass along the word….

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…

Winter Wallace, Holiday

There is no easy way to describe the experience of listening to Holiday, the latest full-length by Winter Wallace (who, as their Facebook page is careful to note, is a band, not just a singer with backing musicians). On the one hand, there’s the music…

This Friday: Say Farewell to 40 Years of KTRU on the Air

I’ve always felt that grieving the dead by being all somber and quiet and melancholy is generally a bad thing; you shouldn’t celebrate the dead by acting like you’re dead, but rather by celebrating life and survival and all the other good things that continue on…

Spring Forward Fest, This Weekend

Of all the festivals and pseudo-festivals floating around lately, this one’s probably at the top of my list; I’d posted about it a while back as the “Downtown Music Festival” one of the guys from Mobley mentioned…

WE LIKE THINGS 2010: Amazingness you need to hear & see from last year.

So, the Grammys are well and over, so I guess it’s about time to get the Official Space City Rock Top-Ten Lists of Amazingly Cool Things You Must See/Hear/Whatever (late, late, late, sure, but hey, we meant to do that, alright?). Read it, and obey…

Coming Up: Downtown Houston Music Fest

Okay, so I’m not entirely sure I’m getting the name right, but it sounds pretty cool, either way… A few weeks back, while emailing back & forth with Tim Shelburne of Austin band Mobley, Tim mentioned that the band would be back in town…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Pik-N-Pak Reunion Night #2 + Fiskadoro + Metal Summit 3 + The Kimonos + Winter Wallace + More

Good night coming up tonight, mostly due to the Pik-N-Pak Reunion deal, but also because of some other shows going on ’round the same time. Get on out the house; here’s where I’d recommend…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Orbans + Sara Van Buskirk + Art Institute + Jody Seabody & The Whirls + Winter Wallace + More

Behind tonight, I’m afraid — Midget #2’s been sick, so it’s been a rough few days… There’s still some cool stuff going on tonight (Fri., December 3rd), if you hurry-hurry out of the house asap…

Update: The Soldier Thread (Tonight!) + Paul Weller + Winter Wallace + The Fresh & Onlys + Obits + Late Saturday Shows(!)

Well, thanks to fucking Blogger fucking not fucking posting the damn posts it’s supposed to, the past 24 hours or so were blown clean out of the water. Argh. I swear, things will be changing on that front, and hopefully soon… At any rate, we got a bunch of new stuff up on the site […]

Winter Wallace, Winter Wallace

Pre-emptive caveat time: the copy of Winter Wallace’s self-titled EP that a friend handed off to me isn’t technically her full four-song EP; all it has is the first two songs on the actual EP…
