    Last Night: Adam Lambert At Hobby Center

    Adam Lambert Sarofim Hall, Hobby Center September 8, 2010 For more images from the show, see our slideshow here. It doesn't matter that Adam Lambert is gay. You might think it does, but it doesn't. What matters is that he's not straight. Because we...

    Texas Tornados

    Bands replacing their front men is hardly uncommon these days, but we can't think of too many that do so with their original singer's offspring. If there would be one to do it, it would be the Texas Tornados. Shawn Sahm, who appeared with dad Doug on...

    Drive-By Truckers

    As time goes by, it looks less and less likely that the Drive-By Truckers will ever make a truly bad album. The Georgia six-piece's previous studio effort, 2008's Brighter Than Creation's Dark, was longer and more uneven than usual (but plenty dark),...

    Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, ZZ Top

    This show has been making local classic-rock fans salivate all summer long, but aside from the umpteen songs that might be playing this very minute on the Arrow or the Eagle, it's really the biggest blues blowout the Houston area will probably see al...

    Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax

    Abandon all hope for being able to hear anything at work the morning, or the next two days, after Sunday's show. Along with the absent Metallica, these three bands helped make up the Big Four of '80s thrash-metal; all four spawned a multitude of stra...

    Rush

    For one of the most successful bands in history, Rush remains a pretty cryptic bunch. Formed in 1968, the Canadian trio of guitarist Alex Lifeson, drummer/lyricist Neil Peart (who joined in 1974) and singer/bassist/keyboardist Geddy Lee began as a Ze...

    Atari Teenage Riot's Empire - Techno-punks have a new MC and a new message.

    Atari Teenage Riot is practically its own genre. Honestly, not many bands combine danceable techno with impossible sheets of near-painful noise, and somehow blend them into a sweaty, ear-bleeding mess that actually bears repeated listens. Those w...

    Live Music in Pearland - Can suburb support a concert venue?

    Pearland has always been viewed as unhip by inner-Loopers. And it makes sense, really. For one thing, its name is centered around pears. Pears. A pear isn't cool. Nobody's ever been handed a present and been like, "Oooh, I hope this box is filled ...

    Houston's 10 Favorite Rainy-Day Albums
