    Bob Dylan: Together Through Life

    Nearly as interesting as his musical progression is Bob Dylan's vocal progression: the nasal whine of Freewheelin'; warm tones of Nashville Skyline; full-throated roar of the Rolling Thunder/gospel years; the phlegmy throat of Time Out of Mind and th...

    Creep Show - O Pioneers!!! turns growing up into unrelenting punk rock.

    Minimalist Houston punk-rock trio O Pioneers!!! creates a pulsating, unrelenting, yet thoroughly engaging wall of sound. The trio tours throughout the southern U.S. pretty regularly, so Chatter was stoked when guitarist/vocalist Eric Solomon agreed ...

    Frat Friendly Fun - Relive those Greek glory days (if you had them) at Midtown's Vintage Lounge.

    Half an hour isn't much time, but sometimes -- in Night World, especially -- it can mean a world of difference. Get to Vintage Lounge (2108 Kipling) around 11 p.m., for example, and the sprawling, two-year-old venue near Shepherd and Westheimer i...

    Vinyl & Compilations - Alternatives to the full-Length CD are back with a vengeance.

    It seems like the last thing local guitar-type bands or musicians want to do these days is release a full-length CD. So far this year, the lion's share of notable Houston indie and punk releases has come on either vinyl LP (Born Liars' Ragged Island...

    Live

    In the beginning of its nearly three-decade career, the almost un-Googleable Live was hailed in late-'80s college rock circles as the second coming of U2, or at least a more muscled Smithereens. Front man Ed Kowalczyk led the York, Pennsylvania, cr...

    Steve Earle: Townes

    Considered by many to be the best Americana songwriter, living or dead, Townes Van Zandt certainly never made it the way Steve Earle has. But on Townes, Earle mines Van Zandt's prolific songbook to pay homage as only a true student of the master coul...

    Olga Tan

    Early in her career, Puerto Rican singer Olga Tan was the queen of merengue, but with an expanded repertoire that includes ballads, pop and all types of tropicalia, she's pretty much shaken off that title and is now simply known as la mujer de fue...

    Edgar Winter

    If you have a thick skull, nimble feet and a proclivity toward violence, you become a prizefighter. If you have a bluesman's soul, a musical family and a tendency toward paleness, you become '70s icon Edgar Winter. Not a bad shake. Three decades on, ...

    Jason Aldean

    The riff in Jason Aldean's latest smash, "She's Country," as far as I can tell, comes from AC/DC. He's easily got the hackiest cowboy hat in today's crop of country hunks, but what sets him apart are frequent hooks that don't just feel hard - they fe...

    Fischerspooner

    In hindsight, the idea that people once considered Fischerspooner an electroclash act is laughable. NYC duo Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner have always been a synth-pop band with a penchant for flamboyant glam and performance art. The proof is in en...

    The Dears

    Montreal's The Dears have always been a curiosity. While front man Murray Lightburn ignored pesky "Black Morrissey" comparisons, the rest of the band was reshuffled in a dramatic lineup change for the recording of newest album Missiles. Not quite Bro...

    The Vibrators

    The Vibrators are year-zero godfathers of singalong punk who shook the world in ten days; that's how long it took to record their iconic, hook-filled 1977 debut Pure Mania. Outlasting safety-pin peers such as the Clash and Sex Pistols, they toured wi...

    The Littlest Morrissey Fans and More

    Eyeballin': Rory Gallagher Live in Cork

    Live in Cork shows a clearly enthused--and still potent--latter-day Gallagher playing for an appreciative hometown in 1987, a smile breaking across the baby face for much of the show. It's easy to see why fans often feel that his prolific studio reco...

    Tonight: Gavin DeGraw at House of Blues

    DeGraw's lyrics swerve into the bitter areas of the male experience, like on 2008's jealousy-ridden "Cheated On Me." At first glance, he may seem cut from the same cloth as other pretty boys with guitars, but DeGraw isn't exactly what he seems and is...

    Saturday: KTRU's Free Outdoor Show with Ted Leo and More

    Each year this festival doesn't disappoint, and it's for a good cause. KTRU is one of the coolest college radio stations around, playing all manner of obscure thrash and indie jams, so we would be kind of uncharitable if we didn't go. Thankfully we w...

    Aftermath: Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band at Toyota Center

    Bruce Springsteen missed the Great Depression - which no doubt bugs him every time he thinks about what a wealth of material those years provided for one of his idols, Woody Guthrie - but he seems determined to make up for it during these days of mas...
