    MC 900 Ft Jesus Brings the Noise - A new label allows Dallas' Mark Griffin to expand his quirky vision

    Mark Griffin is the kind of guy who spent a good amount of time in high school thinking, "Wow, I want to be a high school band director, because that's the coolest thing in the world to do." (He got over it). He's the sort who, after graduating colle...

    Rockefeller's Return - The venerable bank-turned-club is spiffed-up and awaiting your presence

    It almost hasn't seemed like Houston these past months, with Rockefeller's missing in action from my monthly rounds of local venues. As much as I loathed paying "premium room prices" for something to sip during the shows I've seen there, the old bank...

    Karp, the Good Crap

    Don't get me wrong -- I'm not complaining or anything -- but this job ain't natural. The music comes at you in huge, curling waves of no logic and crashes over your head in a senseless muddle of dance-club remixes sharing shelf space with New Age jaz...

    Ecstatic Static - Guided By Voices' low-fi revelations

    At the beginning of the song "Expecting Brainchild," from Guided By Voices' 1993 LP Vampire on Titus, a woman's voice intones: "Bob, will you and Living Praise Choir lead us in 'To God Be the Glory?'" It's a silly gag, nothing more than a found ...
