    Armadillo World Headquarters - The Goode family's shrine to all things Texas could use a shootout or two.

    Texas Renegade is onstage at Goode's Armadillo Palace (5015 Kirby), but the most renegade thing about the San Marcos country-rockers is a solo by harmonica stud Kasey Klepfer that squirts its way to sampling Violent Femmes' "Blister in the Sun." ...

    Bonnie "Prince" Billy: Beware
