    Artist of the Week: Peekaboo Theory

    Each Wednesday, Rocks Off arbitrarily appoints one lucky local performer or group "Artist of the Week," bestowing upon them all the fame and grandeur such a lofty title implies. Know a band or artist that isn't awful? Email their particulars to intr...

    A SugarHill Supergroup of Sorts

    Photos by Chris Gray Watching musicians in the studio is like watching meat processors make sausage: it's tedious and there's lots of blood. But it's worth it to watch the innards of one of the all-time classic Houston psychedelic songs, Fever Tree...

    An Hour in Sunny 99.1's Holiday Hell

    Most people I know hate Sunny 99.1, but not me. And I should really hate it. Any radio station supported by the American Dental Association has to suck. But every time I listen to it, I either hear something so corny and half-baked that I can't turn ...

    Duran Duran Still On... for Now

    Although Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor is battling a pernicious ear infection that makes travel impossible, forcing the '80s icons to cancel last night's show in San Antonio and tonight's in Dallas, the band's publicist says Friday's show at Veriz...

    It's Britney, Bitches!

    (the ninth of her decade-long career) and set a new record for first-week downloads with 286,000. Personally, Rocks Off hasn't enjoyed a Spears song this much since, hell, at least "Toxic." Spears was on the ABC morning show to announce her "The Ci...

    Get Lit: Beatles for Sale by John Blaney

    Well... no. And as long as interest in the band continues to flower - and pass along to new generations - Ye Olde Beatles Bookshelf will continue to groan under the accumulated weight of its tomes. Beatles for Sale, though, is the first one to make a...

    2008 in Plastic: Seven inches at a time...

    Two thousand seven was a banner year for the album in Houston indie rock; with recession looming in 2008, local bands adjusted their ambitions, rediscovering the pithy charms of the 7" -- or, as R.E.M.'s Peter Buck once put it, the "piece of crap us...

    Samantha Ronson

    It's not easy traveling the world with your tarnished sex-symbol girlfriend Lindsay Lohan while you are trying to DJ at dance clubs all over the world, but somehow Samantha Ronson does it, every single night fueled on Red Bull and Marlboros. The bro...

    Chris Masterson & Eleanor Whitmore

    Anyone who saw 13-year-old Chris Masterson shredding a Strat at the Fabulous Satellite Lounge or Big Easy in the late '80s probably had a clue the little guy was going to grow to have some serious stature in the world of guitars. And Masterson hasn'...

    King's X

    Simply put, King's X is a marvel. The Katy-based trio has been hanging around the margins of hard rock for nearly 30 years; next year marks the 20th anniversary of Gretchen Goes to Nebraska ("Summerland," "Over My Head"), one of the pivotal albums o...

    Aterciopelados: Rio

    Ludacris: Theater of the Mind

    Ludacris's strength as a rapper has been, and always will be, an unfortunate irony: he's a schizophrenic mess of disputatious bravado and wit. It serves him well on guest appearances and mixtapes, when his bawling spit is leashed by time restraints ...

    Caught in a Mosh at The Pitt - Teen metal aggression finds an outlet in Pasadena

    It's just gone nearly pitch-black inside Pasadena all-ages metal stomping ground The Pitt (109 N. Spooner), and all things considered, we'd prefer it hadn't. We're not trying to be all cutesy-ironic, like, "Oh, look at us, we're afraid of clowns, ...
