    Tonight: Scott Miller and Mike McClure at McGonigel's Mucky Duck

    Long ago, Scott Miller had a brief essay on his website about playing writers-in-the-round gigs. In his eyes, such shows come down to you, the one good, talented, brilliant songwriter sitting there silently wishing these other hacks would finish thei...

    The Kanye Is a "Sharp Dressed Man"

    Pretty cool, although if Rocks Off were Kanye, he'd lay off the Vocoder just a little on his next album. But he's not, so he has to use both names when referring to himself. "Love Lockdown" is currently No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Sharp Dres...

    Scarface Schools MTV News Editor on the Links

    Hell, Rocks Off, who accompanied 'Face for part of a round at Hermann Park last year (above), could have told him that. While he was in town for September's Ozone Awards, Reid joined Scarface on the links and even took a practice swing. "After my g...

    Things That Make Us Feel Old: Pearl Jam Reissuing Ten Next Year

    Yeah, that's right. Pearl Jam is almost 20. Eddie Vedder and the gang have been in our lives for two decades of Who-worshipping, flannel-waving, grunge-fathering rock. Ten still stands as the band's definitive statement; the singles - which you can s...

    Album of the Week: Christmas a Go-Go

    It's a Little Steven production all right. No Springsteen, but Keith Richards kicks things off with his appropriately ragged rendition of mentor Chuck Berry's "Run Rudolph Run," followed quickly by the Ramones' leather-jacket Yuletide classic "Merry ...

    Tonight: Eugene Chadbourne and Walter Daniels at Rudyard's

    If Jimmy Page had been born a smart-assed, ham-handed hillbilly, he would play much like this. Chadbourne started his Tuesday show in Austin (which featured Texas Tornados drummer Ernie Durawa) with a low-key political lament, shuffling names a...

    Retro Active: The Five Best '80s Christmas Songs

    Musicians in the '80s were certainly not exempt from this need to whip out their yule logs, and, as with most things back then, the results were often mediocre and pastel-colored. However, there are a few Christmas songs from that decade that were no...

    The Specials and the Heyday of Houston Ska

    They co-existed with the punks and the non-racist skins in harmony (somewhat). Drinking always played a big part in scuffles. The skins had more in common with the rude boys, tracing their true lineage back to the youth cult in England in the late '6...

    Can't Get It Out of My Head: "Ain't Livin' Long Like This"

    Rocks Off is a big musical-phase guy. It's not unusual for him to get stuck - if "stuck" is indeed the proper word - listening to an artist or genre for weeks or months at a time. This summer it was Tom Petty (which he's still far from over) and the ...
