    Reverberations Extra: The Love Me Nots, etc. Live at Rudyard's

    When, like Black Black Gold, they're helping carry on the legacy of Texas garage, nothing at all. BBG may lack polish, but they make up the difference with energy and a fine set of ears, and Thursday night at Rudyard's played a solid 20-minute set. T...

    Exclusive: Craig Kinsey's "Montrose Boulevard Blues"

    I've been feeling pretty down about a bunch of crap lately - the march of condos all over town and the douche-ification of Washington Avenue, among other things -- but the Sideshow Tramps' Craig Kinsey has gone and cheered me up with this here jazzy ...

    Drenched in Blog: SXSW Bitchin' Band Alert: Magic Bullets

    The name Magic Bullets at first had me excited because I thought they may be some JFK assassination-themed band. You know, with a tatted-up Lee Harvey Oswald doppelganger on bass or something. But instead I got really chilled-out Scot-Pop ditties fro...

    Looks Like There's At Least One Houston Historical Marker For Music

    A couple of weeks ago, we groused in Racket about the complete lack of music-related state historical markers in Houston, and even cited Frenchtown as an appropriate spot to put one up. I am happy to report that since some time last year, the lack ...

    The Return of the Kashmere Stage band

    Maybe it's some mysterious cosmological force that, outside the movies, only allows storybook endings to happen around Super Bowl Sunday. However, this particular story had nothing to do with the undefeated New England Patriots allowing the 11th-hou...

    Young experimental punk trio Balaclavas are part of the reason 2007 was a banner year for Houston indie rock. Released separately, last year's Balaclavas and Inferno EPs are close enough in tone, sound and time to effectively be two parts of a full-...

    Cat Power - Jukebox

    It's easy to dismiss Jukebox, Cat Power's second covers CD, as Matador's lazy way of dealing with head kitty Chan Marshall's latest bout of writer's block, but any indie-rock hipster knows she always stuffs her live shows with other people's songs. ...

    Black Mountain: In the Future

    Rock nostalgia doesn't always result in great art, but it can sound pretty bitchin' blasting from a car stereo. In the Future, Canadian group Black Mountain's second album, provides further proof (after 2007 single "Druganaut") that for these five V...

    Steve Poltz
