    Aftermath: Madonna at Minute Maid Park

    "Did you cry?" Aftermath asked a new friend during the mass exodus from Minute Maid Park after Madonna's first Houston show since she opened 1990's Blonde Ambition tour at the Summit. "Yes," she said, and from what Aftermath could gather from an inf...

    Lil Keke: Loved by Few, Hated by Many

    Lil Keke is a Houston legend; that point is inarguable. But, despite perfectly capturing the late '90s zeitgeist on geographically charged 1997 hit "Southside," he has never had anything the mainstream could really latch onto. He's never been seen a...

    Chinese Democracy's Liner Notes Upstage Axl Rose's Would-Be Magnum opus - Amuse Your Delusion

    We can all agree that November 23's eons-delayed, punchline-defying, free-Dr Pepper-triggering release of Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy marks the death of something -- some combination of the music industry, "the album" as a unit of cultural impo...

    The Toasters, Los Skarnales

    The Toasters bill themselves as the U.S.'s longest-running ska band, which, given the ups and downs of the genre's popularity on these shores, is a little like winning a tallest midget contest. Still, the New York band paved the way for countless l...

    Duran Duran

    Duran Duran's attempt to contemporize its sound by collaborating with the likes of Justin Timberlake and Timbaland on last year's Red Carpet Massacre didn't quite pay off; both sales and critical reception were disappointing (and disappointed). The ...

    I Set My Friends on Fire

    Not long ago, South Florida teenagers Matt Mihana and Nabil Moo, formerly of a more by-the-numbers post-hardcore band, wanted to form a new project. They thought it would be funny to do a cover of Soulja Boy's "Crank Dat," with Matt screaming the vo...

    News on the March

    Although the last place anyone might expect to hear News on the March's harmonically rich Grand Ole Opry rock is when surrounded by bikinis, towels and crashing waves, there's an essence of the Beach Boys in the local quintet and sand among the sawd...

    Anthony Hamilton

    If Anthony Hamilton's R&B seems grittier than the airbrushed variety common to today's charts, it might have something to do with his biography. It took Hamilton a decade of hook-singing -- for Eve and the late Tupac, among others -- and failed solo...

    Over its nearly 30-year career, this diverse ska/metal/punk/reggae L.A. band never really got the recognition it deserved. The specific reasons are hard to pin down, except that upon founding guitarist Kendall Jones's departure, Fishbone bounced fro...

    Kanye West: 808s & Heartbreak

    Despite what's been written, Kanye West's new style on fourth album 808s & Heartbreak, which incorporates "tribal"-style drum machines and auto-tuned vocals, doesn't sound especially shocking. Immediately satisfying singles like "Robocop" and "Love ...

    Think Buckcherry Has Mellowed? Crazy Bitch... - All Lit Up Again

    Drinking, drugging and crazy bitches sounds like more fun than the law would allow, but playing in a red-hot rock band is not always an all-you-can-eat orgy. "I think people realize there's a lot more to this band than just fucking and partying," ...
