    The Collector: Going Backwards - How Mack McCormick put the z before the y and created z-y-d-e-c-o

    "Did you know I was in the Oxford Unabridged?" asks McCormick. "I coined the spelling for the word 'zydeco.' Z-Y is mine." When the music was first trickling out of Fifth Ward, there were numerous phonetic spellings for the French words les haric...

    Devin the Dude: Landing Gear

    Devin the Dude, Houston's sleepy-eyed hip-hop savant, seems to exist in a perpetual state of mania. For the breadth of his decade-long career, the Dude's content has focused on the holy trinity of slack: pussy, weed and alcohol. His music has been i...

    All Houston Nightlife is Onscreen at Joystix's Pac-Man Fever - Insert Coin(s)

    Joystix (1820 Franklin) is not a bustling nightlife spot by nature. As a matter of fact, it operates Mondays through Saturdays as a retailer of classic video-game and pinball machines. It's done so since 1987. But for the past 18 months or so, on ...

    Me and Mr. Jones

    To paraphrase one of his favorite Iggy Pop songs, Noise is now the passenger. So for all of his Facebook friends wondering why his "status" is now a quote from Wilco's A.M. gem "Passenger Side" ("I don't like riding on the passenger side"), wonder no...

    Rhett Miller

    As front man for Dallas' Old 97's, who dragged a punk-influenced rock sensibility through the boozy, outlaw country bars and bleached landscapes of the Southwest, Rhett Miller was a forerunner of the so-called "alt-country" movement that peaked in t...

    B.B. King
