    Twitter You've Heard Of (Grrr), But What's a Drobot?

    ? Rocks Off's sister music blogs have been kicking ass on music analysis lately. At The Sound of The City, critic Christopher R. Weingarten talks about how Twitter and search-engine optimization (SEO) are ruining music journalism. And if y...

    A Day At The Beach For Beyonce, Dad

    Glee: Marking Time

    But just when you thought Fox had gone overboard in reacting to everyone saying Jane Lynch was the best part of the show, she disappears until the third act. In the meantime, we got an episode that did little to advance the overall plot, whatever tha...

    Idol Beat: Twice the Twain

    There's an unmistakable air of fatigue in the American Idol proceedings at this point in the season: "Idol Gives Back," which raised $45 million for worthy causes, has come and gone; the judges' save has been used; and we're down to just six contesta...

    Ex-Box DJ Klean Cutt Talks About Kracker Nuttz's Firing

    The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place -lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good- so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Have something you always want...

    R&B Legend Ivory Joe Hunter To Get State Historical Marker

    ? Rocks Off's predecessor John Nova Lomax, who normally reports on much more sordid goings-on in East Texas, tipped us off to a story in today's Beaumont Enterprise that reports late Texas R&B legend Ivory Joe Hunter will have an official Te...

    When Animals (And Tornados) Attack: Touring Edition

    The Hickoids, Dash Rip Rock

    The Hickoids have now been a pain in Austin's smug, image-conscious ass for 25 years, and show no signs of mellowing with age. Half Jason and the Scorchers cowpunks, half deranged Monty Python satirists and 100 percent don't give a fuck, Jeff Smith a...

    Jungle Rockers

    As the name implies, Austin's Jungle Rockers are way into the primitive. Theirs is music for Tarzan's effort to woo Jane -- if Bo Diddley played Tarzan, or if Tarzan played electric guitar. The band's recently released EP may be titled Cool It Out, b...

    The Walking Dead - Texas City's Come See My Dead Person is very much alive.

    Texas City seems like an unlikely place for an eight-piece neo-folk, indie-rock, gypsy-influenced musical conglomerate to form. Even more unlikely is the name: Come See My Dead Person. First brought to our attention by George Banks, the Humble arc...

    Everybody Was in the French Resistance...Now!
