    The Mars Volta take Manhattan - Bedlam at Terminal 5

    If there were a word that got at it better than "masturbatory," I'd use it, but there's not, so "masturbatory" it is. The Mars Volta have been onstage for two-and-a-half hours. Another minute longer and they might go blind, and we deaf. The din h...

    Spazmatics = Revenge of the Replicants - Did you know that '80s cover band the Spazmatics has clones from coast to coast?

    Ah, Houston. Increasingly, we seem to be a city that loves its chain stores, a franchise-friendly haven where people get their groceries at Wal-Mart and will drive right past places like Lankford Grocery to get their burger fix at Mickey D's. And n...

    Reverberations: Opening Up the Garage

    Culturcide: Year One

    Culturcide was a pop band that liked to play around with noise. Sometimes that noise overwhelmed their pop's shimmer and spark; other times, it lurked just under the surface. Year One, a re-release of the Houston band's 1982 debut, is awash in pop r...
