    Robert Cray - Shoulda Been Home (Rykodisc)

    Robert Cray is like one of those sluggers who bats .300, knocks 30 homers and steals 30 bases year after year. In 13 albums over two decades, Cray has consistently put up great numbers. He's given us album after album of clear, precise and emotional ...

    Twenty Four Count - Depth of View (Self-released)

    It's hard to knock a band for trying, which Twenty Four Count certainly does here. From sensitive balladry to nice-guy rockers, this quintet makes a noise that's fairly accessible. But unlike the acts that appear to influence them (matchbox twenty, B...

    Playbill - California Guitar Trio with Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto

    While all of these are worthy artists, it's easiest to get psyched up about Tony Levin's presence on the bill. One of the great bass players, bar none, Levin arrives heavily armed for this gig with the California Guitar Trio and drummer Pat Mastelo...

    Playbill - Crosby, Stills and Nash

    The vocal rockers with a name like a law firm continue to bear aloft the Original Woodstock Nation banner, seemingly at peace with their elder-statesman status and with one another. The core trio seemed re-energized during its hugely successful 200...

    Playbill - Blood Drained Cows

    In a time of eyelinered glam-punk throwbacks like the Black Halos and the no-budget, Detroit garage rock, dance-beat mayhem of the White Stripes, the Blood Drained Cows are a perfect antidote to pretension and self-conscious anachronism. The ramb...

    Truth Be Told - Lee Roy Parnell finds his roots everywhere but Nashville

    For Texas music royal Lee Roy Parnell, it's odd to have a town like Macon, Georgia play such an important role in his development. After all, Parnell's dad was a close friend of and performed with Bob Wills. Lee Roy debuted at age six with Wills an...

    Midnight Pumpkin - Toni Price glows on her best album yet

    Like a father nervously awaiting his daughter's return from her first date, the smitten, fiftysomething berfan paces around the Continental Club, leaning on a cane. Occasionally, he ventures onto the sidewalk on Main Street. She's running a bit late...

    Racket - At Tim Murrah's Metropol, it's about music, not style

    For Tim Murrah, Metropol's eccentric owner/DJ/Britpop guru, it's not about style. Most downtown clubs try to create buzz with their exclusivity, high covers, dazzling lights, and flavor-of-the-minute dance trax piped in direct from New York and LA...

    Playbill - Lucky Boys Confusion

    No one is more aware of a trend's limited shelf life than a record company executive. Lucky Boys Confusion learned this fact when its blend of ska, punk, rap, and reggae attracted the attention of Elektra. Since ska hybrid bands are so 1996, the la...

    Playbill - Bare Jr.

    People who are surprised by Bobby Bare Jr.'s post-punk leanings must not have been listening when his daddy was recording. Papa Bare was pretty hip himself, having released what is perhaps country music's first concept album in 1973, a collection o...

    Sumpin' Filthy - Local punker/chef Filthy McNasty is the Ginuwine article

    Filthy McNasty is one of those performers you can't keep to yourself. Hell, you're kinda pissed no one has told you about him sooner. McNasty, also known as Brian Michael McManus, hasn't been around quite long enough to be considered the city's dirt...

    Prodigal Sons - The Man in Black claims his Bastards

    When Johnny Cash speaks to you in your dreams, you better pay heed. That's exactly what Mark Stuart did after several nocturnal visits from the Man in Black, who spoke to the San Diego musician about, well, stuff, and also about playing country music...

    Racket - Pinpointing when Texas music jumped the shark

    One of the more engrossing sites on the Web is www.jumptheshark.com. On this site, which takes its name from an episode of Happy Days in which the Fonz water-ski jumps over a Great White to win a battle of wills with some California toughs, Web surfe...

    The Turn of the Screw - In which a narcotic, native-born music finds a nightclub home

    A few weeks ago, club owner Jay Ferrero gave his Richmond Strip sports bar Club Chico's a total overhaul. Named after the moniker he was given when he was stationed in the army in San Antonio (apparently he was the only Puerto Rican around), the New...

    Our Lady Peace - Spiritual Machines (Columbia Records)

    From the land of the deep freeze, and apparently the home of the deep thinkers, comes the latest release from Toronto post-grungers Our Lady Peace. It seems you won't find these brainiac musicians grappling over skateboard 'zines or drooling over the...

    VuD Caf - VuD Caf (Self-released)

    At first listen, it's easy to find shades of Marc Anthony, Chris Perez, Santana, Man, even a little Ricky Martin, to VuD Caf. But the truth is VuD sounds like only VuD. VuD Caf was formed by guitarist Jesse Flores and drummer Steve Salazar in...

    Playbill - Mem Shannon

    True triple-threat talents are very rare in any music, and to this general rule the blues is no exception. While thousands can play the blues on the guitar, perhaps only 10 percent of those can also write great songs, and a smaller fraction of those...

    Playbill - Ian Moore

    There was a day when MTV's Unplugged segments were actually worth waiting for through the myriad of ads for pimple cream and shampoo. Yet in 2001, any young stud or studette with one cool rock song in their repertoire gets a shot at playing acoustic...

    Though they prefer to categorize themselves as "melodic hardcore," this Orange County-birthed quartet solidly melds punk and metal, finding the common ground between early Green Day and early Metallica (and especially that Kirk Hammettesque guitar). ...
