    There Is No Enemy - Built to Spill regains 90s form on new album.

    Even though Built to Spill's Doug Martsch sounds proud of his band's newest album, There Is No Enemy, he's aware of its typical critical appraisal. "First good record they've made since the 1990s," he mockingly spits in a dumb- ass drawl. That ...

    Jason Moran, HSPVA Jazz Ensemble

    Jason Moran is a genius. We suspect that was evident to the Houston native's classmates at HSPVA (he's been playing since age six), but now it's official. Last month the Mac- Arthur Foundation named the pianist, now 35 and living in New York City, a...

    Frightened Rabbit

    Boldly seizing a moniker his mother hung on him when social anxiety held him back a year in nursery school, Scott Hutchinson's Northern Scotland quintet Frightened Rabbit plays earnest, self-searching paeans that ring with the sonorous indie-pop echo...

    Paul Oakenfold, Calvin Harris, Kenneth Thomas

    Paul Oakenfold is getting long in the tooth. Although the 47-year-old British-born trance superstar isn't ready for AARP membership just yet, he's been bringing forth the beats since the Studio 54 era and has outlasted his peers from London's early-'...

    Moon Tower Inn - Second Ward has first-class venue.

    It's easy, and convenient, to lump bars into archetypal categories when you're describing them. This bar is a Dive Bar, that bar is a Glitzy Nightclub, this bar is an After-Hours Lounge. That bar is where 21-year-olds hang out, so don't go there ...

    Linus Pauling Quartet

    For a band that flies the "stoner-rock" so proudly (and loudly), the Linus Pauling Quartet sure is industrious. Sort of. Although the long-running Houston band hasn't released anything since the vinyl-only All Things Are Light -- "Southern rock, swor...

    John Anderson

    Depending on your age bracket, your first memory of Florida country singer John Anderson was either 1983's "Swingin'" or 1992's "Straight Tequila Night," which we used to sing in the car to our family, oblivious that it's about a heartbroken woman's ...

    Valient Thorr

    Mix equal parts Alex Jones and Gene Roddenberry, with a healthy dash of MC5 and a scoop of AC/DC, and you get Chapel Hill's Valient Thorr. The band's live shows are sweaty, draining, lusty rock and roll affairs with lead singer and former schoolteach...
