    Amplified - Out In Sight

    Everybody has probably been through this scenario once or twice: It's Christmastime. You're at the local Cactus Music looking for that new one from Calvin Owens or Ezra Charles or any other of your favorite Houston-based artists. You cull the racks...

    Playbill - Big Mouth: Beth Hart. Also, L'Amico Fritz and Gianni Schicchi

    Beth Hart comes across as the type of woman who, if you tried to pick her up at a bar, would drink you under the table and beat you at pool, telling dirty jokes the whole time. She has guts, swagger and ovaries. No wonder she was selected for the tit...

    Platinum Dreams - Local Latium Records rides pop Latin wave to success

    In an office on Old Katy Road is a black wall-sized banner that reads in big-ass gold letters: "LATIUM RECORDS: Latin's Goin' Platinum." The statement, in a way, says nothing new, as the success of national Latin artists such as Ricky Martin and Je...

    Monday, Monday - The blues make the first day of the week seem less so at Miss Ann's Playpen

    More than 75 people are packed into a dimly lit room, drinking beer and wine coolers purchased on premises or mixing BYOB drinks from their large bottles and pocket flasks. Equal parts men and women sit and laugh together around 16 blue cloth-covered...

    Playbill - Living Blues: Tommy Castro

    Tommy Castro's advice to all wanna-be "guitar heroes" would probably sound like this: If you all would just shut the hell up for a second, maybe you'd be in a band somewhere instead of in your basement, blindfolded, trying to play the E-sharp-minor-a...

    Ladies in Blue - You think you like the blues? You ain't seen nothing yet.

    It is 5 p.m. on a Sunday, and both blues and barbecue are really cooking. In a southeast Houston establishment that epitomizes the organic link between this sound and this food, Rena Singleton is seated at her regular table. And in her own words, she...

    Sophomore Flops - Record companies to artists: "What have you done for me lately?"

    Sophomore slump. Sophomore jinx. One-hit wonder. The idea that a band can release one record then either fade into oblivion or fail miserably with its next is so common it's clich. The story goes something like this: Band writes and rehearses song...

    Playbill - Elvis Incarnate: Mojo Nixon

    Mojo Nixon's appeal comes from a riotous combination of his rockabilly-inspired adolescent humor and his disdain for icons. For the better part of 15 years, Nixon has laid his cards out on the table. It's all there in the song titles: "Debbie Gibson ...

    In Hebrew mythology, Asmodeus is the king of demons who is as evil as he wants to be. Sometimes, though, Asmodeus is seen as the impish deity who brings carnivals, fashion and music to mankind. This latter description is appropriate for the goth band...
