    Famous Amos - Bad girl Tori becomes more than a Kate Bush manque

    Tori Amos' song-time embodiment of "the bad girl, the self-righteous virgin, the prostitute" and self-proclaimed pursuit of self-empowerment themes seem a tad on the theoretical side for my taste. But all the same, there's no use denying the magnetic...

    Lounging Around - Flowing back to the '50s with The Naughty Ones

    In Austin, The Naughty Ones' weekly gig at the Continental Club has become a semi-legendary outpost of loungy sleaze, circa 1959, in a town otherwise far removed from the sort of Vegas bowling alley/cocktail bar The Naughty Ones' music conjures. Here...

    Big Mike Attack - The sinister turns serious with a new take on rap

    In person, Big Mike isn't quite as menacing as his publicity shots would have you think. In the photos, the 22-year-old rapper is usually shot from below, adding the illusion of towering stature to his already beefy frame. He wears a thin line of bea...

    Miss Molly and Mattress Mac, Too - The Houston Press has its very own blowout extraordinaire

    We hate to blow our own horn (well, actually, we don't hate any such thing, we just hate to admit that we don't mind blowing our own horn), but if we didn't think the 5th Annual Houston Press Music Awards was worth your time on a Monday night, we sur...

    Turn Up de Heat - The Reverend Horton Heat is only the baddest-ass live band coming your way

    The scene's not difficult to imagine. The Reverend Horton Heat -- the Lone Star State's most aggressively high-profile Texan export to the rock world since ZZ Top toured the globe with live Longhorns and rattlesnakes in tow -- is holed up in a Dallas...

    Torch Song Trilogy - One woman's mission, and a three-night stand, benefits AIDS organizations

    Short People - The lowdown on 2-Low and kid rap

    It's one thing for Cypress Hill's B-Real to rap "A to the muthafuckin' K, homeboy," but put the same phrase in the mouth of a child and it complicates matters. Is it cool for a kid to compose rhymes about "sippin' 40's" when he/she is still a good fi...

    Flop Like an Eagle - Brad Tyer checks out of the Hotel California after five songs

    I'm at something of a loss here, folks. To the best of my knowledge, no clubs closed down. As far as I know, no clubs opened. No bands moved to Austin, and nobody got arrested. The week was a huge spinning void of columnar nothing, punctuated by some...

    What a Long, Strange Trip... - The Missiles cap ten years with a farewell. Their manager remembers.

    Retro Grade A

    When North Carolina's Southern Culture on the Skids are hungry, they scarf pork and fried chicken. When they're at home, they're pickin' and grinnin' in a trailer park. And when they're feeling romantic, they write an ode to hillbilly love called "Pu...

    Yiddish Yahoos - The Austin Klezmorim's clamorous eclecticism

    "Klezmer," I'm told by Bill Averbach, leader of The Austin Klezmorim, is Yiddish for "musician," which goes some way toward explaining the wide-open eclecticism of the musical genre of the same name. Eastern European in ancestry, klezmer music is mor...
