    Scarface Endorses Music Rights Now's Anti-Piracy Campaign

    When it comes to the music industry, there's never been more of a need to be vocal to policymakers. Piracy has plagued the music industry for years, and the only way to protect the intellectual property of hard-working artists is to get Congress to p...

    The Top 10 Coolest Music-Video Explosions

    ? We like fireworks and explosions, and with July 4th right around the corner, we are sure to get our fill. Things burning or blowing up are pretty cool, except of course if it's your house, car or business. In that case, it's an awful, horr...

    Opera: The Video Game

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    No one pairs vintage soul and Americana with the fiery heart of punk rock better than Delta Spirit. Singer Matt Vasquez writes songs from the perspective of an observant traveler who's seen his share of back-alley drama, sketchy characters and fellow...

    Scumbag Karaoke

    Toadies

    With 1995's Rubberneck, the Toadies became radio mainstays across the country and hard-rock icons at home in North Texas. But somehow they couldn't keep the attention of label Interscope Records. As was the plan, the band went into the studio, sure ...

    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...

    Weird Al Yankovic

    If you dig around on YouTube long enough, you'll find footage of Weird Al Yankovic's first-ever television appearance on NBC's Tomorrow with Tom Snyder back in 1981. It's a strangely harrowing version of "Another One Rides the Bus" done solely on acc...
