    "It feels like a minor miracle." That's how Jason Ringenberg, the Jason of Jason and the Scorchers, describes his band's reunion. Houston fans of high energy, country-tinged rock and roll should thank heaven that the age of minor miracles isn't o...

    Getting Past the Goo - Their name's a drunken joke, but the Goo Goo Dolls' music is serious

    Utter the name Goo Goo Dolls to most people, and the response you get in return is automatic. "Who?" the person asks, suppressing fits of laughter. To the uninitiated, the Goo Goo Dolls sounds like the punch line to a bad joke. But to longtime f...

    Kicking the Genre Habit

    Pete Anderson's solo debut, Working Class, brings to mind a couple of local quotes. Joe Hughes has some great lines about how his goal was to be a musician, not a bluesman, and Gene Kelton claims he learned the blues from frequent ass-kickings during...

    Folk the Odd, Old Way - Palace makes new songs that sound like they've been around forever

    It's interesting to wonder what the folks who went to Lollapalooza last year -- folks who were seeking out the pop-friendly likes of Green Day or perhaps Smashing Pumpkins -- thought when they wandered to one of the side stages and discovered Will Ol...

    Even the Normal (Get Lucky Sometime) - Craftsman Tom Petty uses the right tool for the right job

    After 20 years in the rock and roll business, Tom Petty still hasn't really made it. Unlike a Springsteen or a Dylan, Petty has yet to elevate to first-name status. Bruce is Bruce, and Bob is Bob. But Tom is definitely Tom Petty. Yet Petty is ev...

    Sounding Out Mary - Mary Karlzen doesn't want to be anyone but herself

    Over the phone from Miami, you can almost hear Mary Karlzen wince as it's suggested that she fits into a trend -- waifish female singers with a mouth-of-the-South voice who delve into personal experience from a woman's perspective. Though she brighte...
