    Snowboarding in L.A. - Planet Shock! shoots for the big time beneath the glitzy eaves

    Adventures in LaLa Land... Those big-guitar-soundin', herb-worshippin', one-lovin' hip-rockers in Planet Shock! are back from their latest field trip to Los Angeles, and if they still haven't signed on anybody's dotted line, that's not to say they di...

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

    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...

    Punk, but Not Stupid - Manhole stays angry for all the right reasons

    Houston's no easy town for aspiring musicians, and no town is easy when those musicians are holding down serf-wage day jobs and trying to a make a serious go of the music business at the same time. Unapologetic punk rockers playing in a town where pu...

    Ray Stevens Lives!!! - Todd Snider's novelty tunes will tickle your jaded fancy

    I don't know about you, but I've got vivid memories of sitting in the back seat of the family car, driving down some long road to visit some East Texas relative or another, and during the course of the trip we'd always hear at least two or three nove...

    Two Guys on a Goof

    One of the joys of listening to early Ween tapes such as God Ween Satan and The Pod was the self-flattering illusion that hey, I could do this if only I were holed up on a Pennsylvania horse farm with my best friend, two pounds of pot, three cans of ...

    A Way with Words - Inherited Road is another good thing from Houston's Kimberly M'Carver

    There's a lot of talk about the Townes Van Zandt/Guy Clark/Nancy Griffith triumvirate of Texas songwriters, and how they all came up through the Anderson Fair-anchored Houston folk circuit way back in the good old days, when the folk clubs were fille...

    Street Song

    If the progression of tunes on Ted Hawkins' recently released The Next Hundred Years (DGC) reads like an emotional rags-to-riches story, that's because the life it documents is just that. To compress a long story into a blurb, Hawkins was born to a f...

    Halloween Hangover - NIN was an unexpected treat, but Hole was a sorry trick

    I never considered myself a Nine Inch Nails fan; listening to The Downward Spiral reminds me of the unhappy coincidence of noise that hits me when the Federal Express trucks start rumbling past my bedroom window at the same time the ratty static from...
