    Tonight: Lowell Thompson at Rudyard's

    Burlington, Vermont, singer-slinger Lowell Thompson has that angst-ridden delivery that screams "this is alt-country." A pointed No Depression/Jeff Tweedy-ness abounds on Thompson's 2004 EP Turn, which is full of steel guitar and generic but pleasant...

    Tonight: Old Farts Early Show at the Mink

    "Houston is known for many things, especially bands needing to lug their gear up a flight of stairs and being forced to play late in the [weeknight], when far too many folks must take a pass due to having work or school the next morning," says the Sk...

    Mechanical Boy: Play Along

    At first blush, Houston five-piece Mechanical Boy's debut Play Along doesn't sound too far removed from indie-dance bands like the Rapture or the Bravery, but scratch the surface and there's a rock band under there -- and a potent rock band at that....

    SPC Weekend Plumbs the Roots of Houston Rap - South Side Symphony

    To pinpoint the birth of rap music in Houston is to place a number of pins along a scattered timeline of the late '70s and early '80s. You could trace it back to when the legendary Houston DJ Darryl Scott was first mixing rap into his funk and soul s...

    Seth Kauffman

    With so much ramshackle funk and lo-fi soul spilling out of Seth Kauffman's sophomore effort, Research, Beck is the immediate comparison on paper. But in reality, Kauffman sounds like no one else out there, whipping up a sort of world music from ano...
