    Last Night: Michael Bolton At Jones Hall

    Michael Bolton with the Houston Symphony Jones Hall September 8, 2010 It was a little over a year ago that Aftermath saw Yanni, and just a few months back that we saw Kenny G. Wednesday night we saw Michael Bolton, forming a power-trio of artists th...

    Rockin' His Life Away, Jerry Lee Lewis Shows Signs Of Age

    Would he be so drunk he'd make a pathetic fool of himself? We were so relieved when they managed to drive their way through an hour and a half without anything untoward to spoil the event. After receiving a Facebook alert from BP Fallon late Tuesda...

    Wanted: Creed Tribute Band

    Codi Rowe (right) with Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti Rocks Off is not generally a fan of tribute bands, and even less so of Creed. We did have one guy hear who was a fan, but we left his body in the lobby as a warning to others who would embrace S...

    Gaslight Anthem

    The Gaslight Anthem sound harks back to the Jersey Shore of yore -- a place that's about as far away as you can get from the grotesque excesses displayed by MTV's Jersey Shore and, um, Pauly D's hair. For ever-earnest singer Brian Fallon and his band...

    Vampire Weekend

    The National

    Matt Berninger's warbling baritone has the gruff, amber warmth of whiskey. As intoxicating as his band's songs are, it's arguable that his voice is at least 80 proof by itself. Berninger is front man of The National, a gorgeously morose band that has...

    Two Cow Garage

    When Two Cow Garage burst out of the unlikely burg of Columbus, Ohio, onto the alt-country scene with 2002's Please Turn the Gas Back On, we have to admit we didn't expect these young Midwesterners to last long with a name like that. They were young,...

    Inanimate Objects

    The Inanimate Objects may be new to us, but they're hardly new. Like first-wave stalwarts the Hates, the local trio has been around since the early '80s, when they opened for Hsker D, San Francisco's Los Microwaves and Pearland's The Judy's at long...

    Blitzen Trapper

    Tailgating in Midtown - A trendy Everyman bar? Can that even happen?

    Houston's 10 Favorite Rainy-Day Albums

    Weather like Houston had this past week seems to make everyone "sad panda" and turn to lusher, less upbeat music. Snuggle-rock, dad-rock, beard-rock - music you hear in coffee shops seems to be ruling our city's personal airwaves. As Tropical Storm...
