    "Gulf Coast Beach Boys" the Coastliners Return...with the Beach Boys - Still 'Alright'

    By the mid-1960s, the Beach Boys' sunny California harmonies had swept the nation. The Malibu group's songs about the beach, surfing, cars and girls were something every kid could either identify with or simply wanted to. The Houston area was no exce...

    The R&B timeline in reverse via Cotton Exchange and The Real Sammie - Franklin Mint

    There is never an appropriate time to play Nick Cannon's five-year-old single "Gigolo." It's a corny, brainless, flute-laden mash-up of a song that even a catchy chorus from the pied piper of R&B couldn't save. Ergo, its presence at Cotton Exchange (...

    Music to Shuffle Off This Mortal Coil

    Hank Williams and Jim Morrison knew it. Did they ever. Temple-born bluesman Blind Willie Johnson had a pretty good idea, owning up "Dark Was the Night -- Cold Was the Ground" (a crucifixion song based on the old hymn "Gethsemane") in 1927. Most peopl...

    Grace Potter & the Nocturnals

    Grace Potter has jammed the antiwar streets enough to get arrested. But if she showed any politics on last year's This Is Somewhere, the protest was mostly veneered by the Nocturnals' adult-alternative rock and Southern-boogie blues, though she cut...

    Willie Nelson

    Willie Nelson has had quite the 75th birthday year. He's been feted in print -- Joe Nick Patoski's deluxe biography Willie -- and on Columbia/Legacy's outstanding four-CD anthology One Hell of a Ride. And he shows no signs of letting up -- must be a...

    Rabbit in the Moon

    If your Halloween isn't bizarre enough already, consider the sensory overload of Rabbit in the Moon live: strobe lights, lasers, smoke machines and a sea of costumed bodies writhing in (and perhaps on) ecstasy. Formed in 1991, the three-man Tampa-ba...

    Los Skarnales

    Talk about a dynamite mix: Da de los Muertos, Los Skarnales, art crosses and MECA (Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts). That's the formula for Under the Volcano's annual Day of the Dead benefit. While local artists hand over de...

    Legendary Pink Dots

    A music store's status as "eclectic" is defined by one thing, and one thing only: Does it carry music by the Legendary Pink Dots? Quite possibly the most avant-garde of the avant-garde, the Holland-based psychedelic minstrels have never skipped Hous...

    Colourmusic

    What to do with a hopelessly pretentious but inarguably catchy band like Colourmusic? Though the Stillwater, Oklahoma, natives claim a bloodline to Sir Isaac Newton and a mission to make records based on the principle of synesthesia -- where hearing...

    Roy Orbison: The Soul of Rock and Roll

    The leg up Roy Orbison had on fellow founding fathers of rock Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly was that he could be all of them at once. His bodacious voice, mad guitar skills and nerd-chic look rocked around the clock. These combined powe...

    Saturday: Don Caballero at Meridian

    While there are still nods to classic Don Cab via smatterings of syncopation, and occasional needlepoint guitar work, Che and his new family are moving in a markedly different direction, and one which is likely to confound unwary fans. The new Don Ca...

    Aftermath: Dr. John at House of Blues

    It must be getting close to Mardi Gras, because Aftermath swore he could smell gumbo during Dr. John and the Lower 911's roux-thick mambo "Goin' Back to New Orleans" Thursday night. (Either that or he really needs to eat more.) Too bad more people di...
