    Salt In The Wounds At Washington Avenue Open Mike

    Several commenters on that blog seemed to imply that LOM shouldn't have opinions about the event unless we had actually been there to see it in all its wonderful-cality. Well, guess what? LOM and Rocks Off dropped in for a toddy at Salt last night. O...

    Five '90s Musical Fads We Remember Well, But Don't Really Miss

    It started with the release of the film Swingers, which still miraculously holds up 14 years later, and ended with Lou Bega's "Mambo No. 5," which effectively and swiftly made us look down at our wingtips and trade them for shell-toe Adidas. Friday...

    V-Zilla, Shunned By HPMAs, Has A Lot To "Talk About"

    "There should be a "Best Lyricist category." Yeah, we won't argue. And if someone were to say that V-Zilla would be a front-runner for that category, again, we wouldn't argue. Zilla didn't make this year's HPMA ballot, and Rocks Off was prett...

    Behind The Cover: Trae Stars In His Own Old School

    ? Today's Trae cover story was nearly a year in the making. As noted, the whole Trae vs. The Box thing can be traced back to the 2009 Trae Day shooting. Rocks Off was actually at that event and happened to be none too far from where the bu...

    Rocks Off Blogger Writes Book. Seriously. For Real.

    It is a book wholly devoted to defining the enigmatic scene that is Houston music, particularly the scene frequently overlooked by local critics as well as local musicians -the scene around which music and melodramatic make-believe get married. Black...

    Why So Serious? Let 'Em See Your... Joker Face!

    Now, the video is very amateur, but honestly, there's some kind of genius in its execution. Followers of the various Batman canons will feel right at home in the portrayals of DC's characters, and the looks on some of the normal folks' faces as the c...

    They Might Be Giants - D&W Lounge takes the East End's sudden trendiness in working-class stride.

    The East End's D&W Lounge (911 Milby) looks like it's an awful, tedious, dreadful spot for nightlife. It's an unattractive building on an unattractive road in a part of town that, despite whispers it's becoming the "new Heights," is still pretty unat...

    Book Learning - Houston's Literary Greats sail onto the college-radio charts with Ocean, Meet the Valley.

    The Literary Greats don't keep an especially high profile in local music circles. Between day jobs, families and once-a-month weekend tours to nearby cities, the Houston quintet that describes its sound as "the Pixies meets Kenny Rogers" only plays i...

    The Mother Truckers

    You know the old saying "a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll?" Austin's Mother Truckers are more like a whole lot of country, a shit-ton of rock and roll, but the two halves of that soon-to-be clich aren't mutually exclusive. Sure, the ...

    Fleshtones

    Almost 35 years since starting out in the wilds of Queens and soon after landing on the wild stage of CBGB, the Fleshtones are still out in the garage thrashing out raw, perhaps surprisingly vital rock and roll ensnared in a serious time warp. The Fl...

    Summer Swoon - Proudly independent, recent Grammy nominees Silversun Pickups aren't ready to hit the "Panic Switch."

    Since releasing a rhapsodic, fuzz-laden debut, Carnavas, in 2006, the Los Angeles-based Silversun Pickups have assiduously chiseled a name for themselves in modern rock's pantheon. Carnavas's hissing kickback set against lead singer Brian Aubert's b...
