    The Year in Albums

    Don't believe the hype. The album is alive and well and procreating furiously. Too furiously. Printed out, the Wikipedia entry for albums released in 2008 -- itself far from a complete list -- spans 29 pages. Noise got maybe a fifth of those in th...

    Robert Earl Keen

    For the past 25 years, Sharpstown's own Robert Earl Keen has been every bit as influential a songwriter and performer as his onetime College Station porchmate Lyle Lovett. Just ask George Strait, who recorded Keen/Dean Dillon co-write "West Texas To...

    New Year's Eve

    Known to those in the biz as "amateur night," New Year's Eve is nonetheless a near-guaranteed full house for bands and clubs, and a boon to local music fans -- often with free champagne. Throw in the occasional ringer or two, and you've got a party ...

    Asylum Street Spankers

    Over a decade ago, this Austin-based group allegedly came together after far too many drinks in a Llano hotel, and remains best appreciated by those not easily offended. The Spankers' all-acoustic, Vaudevillian songs poke fun at everything they poss...

    Winter Wonderglam

    The fourthish installment in the annual-so-far Winter Wonderglam series, held this year at the River Oaks Theatre, splits a dingily decadent evening between garage rock and hard noise. Dead Roses headlines with retro glam-punk that's deceptively tas...

    Tonight: Scott Miller and Mike McClure at McGonigel's Mucky Duck

    Long ago, Scott Miller had a brief essay on his website about playing writers-in-the-round gigs. In his eyes, such shows come down to you, the one good, talented, brilliant songwriter sitting there silently wishing these other hacks would finish thei...

    The Kanye Is a "Sharp Dressed Man"

    Pretty cool, although if Rocks Off were Kanye, he'd lay off the Vocoder just a little on his next album. But he's not, so he has to use both names when referring to himself. "Love Lockdown" is currently No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Sharp Dres...

    Things That Make Us Feel Old: Pearl Jam Reissuing Ten Next Year

    Yeah, that's right. Pearl Jam is almost 20. Eddie Vedder and the gang have been in our lives for two decades of Who-worshipping, flannel-waving, grunge-fathering rock. Ten still stands as the band's definitive statement; the singles - which you can s...

    Album of the Week: Christmas a Go-Go

    It's a Little Steven production all right. No Springsteen, but Keith Richards kicks things off with his appropriately ragged rendition of mentor Chuck Berry's "Run Rudolph Run," followed quickly by the Ramones' leather-jacket Yuletide classic "Merry ...

    Tonight: Eugene Chadbourne and Walter Daniels at Rudyard's

    If Jimmy Page had been born a smart-assed, ham-handed hillbilly, he would play much like this. Chadbourne started his Tuesday show in Austin (which featured Texas Tornados drummer Ernie Durawa) with a low-key political lament, shuffling names a...

    Retro Active: The Five Best '80s Christmas Songs

    Musicians in the '80s were certainly not exempt from this need to whip out their yule logs, and, as with most things back then, the results were often mediocre and pastel-colored. However, there are a few Christmas songs from that decade that were no...
