    Bronx Cheer - Ten years in, Bronx Bar is still the Rice Village slickster club

    With regard to masculinity, a beard is the penultimate facial accessory. Less hipster-clichd than a mustache, more intentional than a scar, it's, we suspect, the sole reason 28-year-old Matthew Swulius has been allowed into Rice Village's Bronx Bar...

    Fund-raiser Blues

    Every day seems to bring more bad news. "Consumer Spending Tumbles," blared last Friday's Houston Chronicle, two days after the Federal Reserve lowered the benchmark interest rate -- again. A subsequent Google News search for "economic crisis" yielde...

    ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead

    The body count keeps rising for ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. The Austin-via-Olympia noise-rockers scored one of the decade's best albums with 2002's ferocious, forbidding Source Tags and Codes, the beginning of a bittersweet tenure...

    Cro-Mags (jam)

    NYC's Cro-Mags are usually credited as one of the first bands to have played hardcore punk with heavy-metal influences, helping to create the fusion variously referred to as "hardcore metal," "metalcore" and "crossover thrash," and which helped lay...

    Annuals, Minus the Bear

    Annuals are at the forefront of indie-rock's New Density movement. Comparable to contemporaries Gang Gang Dance, Islands and Yeasayer, the ADD-affected North Carolina sextet is a jubilant centrifuge of influences, compacting aspects of stadium rock,...

    The Hickoids are to country music what a stick of dynamite is to firecrackers. Back in the days when no one had to worry much about keeping Austin weird, the Hickoids were doing their best to make it the weirdest place in Texas, if not on earth. Win...

    Jad Fair

    As a founding member of oddball noise rockers Half Japanese, Jad Fair made a living off of his quirky music. His solo efforts over the years have mostly been more restrained affairs, however, and recent collaborations with sometimes better-known mus...

    Sugar Shack, Teisco Del Rey, Neptones, etc.

    This is the story of Johnny Romano, a Galveston surfing prodigy who succumbed to leukemia September 23, days after his family lost its home to Hurricane Ike. He was ten years old. Romano was a regular in the island's "grom" -- surf-speak for tykes -...

    Parts & Labor: Receivers

    Dan Friel and B.J. Warshaw of Brooklyn's Parts & Labor are known for wearing their punk influences on their sleeves, but both 2006's Stay Afraid and last year's Mapmaker contained elements that suggested the band was outgrowing its hardcore-rooted n...

    Oasis: Dig Out Your Soul

    Here's a dirty little critical secret: Many times when reviewers describe an album as being a veteran band's best since "fill in the blank," they remember zilch about the discs that appeared in between. That's certainly the case when it comes to Oas...

    Lucinda Williams: Little Honey

    "Throw a wide loop," my dad used to say, and Lucinda Williams has certainly thrown her widest musical loop yet with Little Honey. After 2006's dull, disappointing West, Williams sounds like a woman with her groove back, mixing blazing steroidal rock...

    Aftermath: The Walkmen, Little Ones and Young Mammals at Walter's on Washington

    Photos by Chris Gray The Walkmen look like such nice boys. They strode onstage at last night's sold-out Walter's show mostly clad in tucked-in button-down Oxford shirts, like they had just gotten off work - or, these days, just been fired - from so...

    Laurie Anderson: "The World Has Turned Itself Inside Out in the Last Few Weeks"

    For almost three decades, Laurie Anderson has been America's most recognizable performance artist. Some of this no doubt stems from the fact that, with Lou Reed, she's been half of New York's No. 1 art/rock power couple for about that long (the two...
