    Santana, 3 Doors Down, Carlos Mencia Postponed or Cancelled

    Most of the music venues in the Houston area seem to have weathered Ike without much damage - with the notable, terrible exception of Galveston's Balinese Room - but the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion wasn't so lucky. The outdoor amphitheater was ...

    Another Bar Update

    Rocks Off did his civic duty last night and checked in on a few Montrose watering holes. Boondocks was open by candlelight, cash only, and a few of the dozen or so patrons had shed their outergarments. (Why not?) Rudyard's and the Next Door were both...

    Thanks in no small part to his throaty wail and sturdy songwriting, Nathan Willett has expertly steered his Orange County quartet Cold War Kids from mere blog buzz to a sweet record deal, worldwide attention and now a domino-like series of sold-out ...

    Alkaline Trio

    Not really a threesome -- tour manager Nolan McGuire often plays guitar for live shows -- Alkaline Trio is one of the best purveyors of catchy, thoughtful punk/hardcore at a time when fashion sense and well-applied eyeliner have sadly become the mod...

    Carl Cox

    The world of dance music is a fickle place; today's sick DJ or superproducer is a has-been tomorrow. Hardly anyone seems to carry any kind of continued weight amongst the clubbers, but those select few who do are gods among men. British DJ Carl Cox ...

    Kings of Leon: Only By the Night

    Able to sell out 20,000-seat venues in the UK, this Tennessee-born band of three brothers and a cousin has mystifyingly never achieved anywhere near that status in its homeland. Unfortunately, while the group's fourth record is certainly its most ex...

    TV on the Radio: Dear Science

    Over the last five years, Brooklyn's TV on the Radio has succeeded in making weird sounds relatively accessible, garnering that much-coveted "art-rock" designation. Yet seemingly cognizant of how "played" that distinction may be, the band's third fu...

    50 Cent, "Get Up": "You got a Bentley coupe booty, baby / I wanna drive" -- 50's a smooth ladies' man, at heart! "I have the savoir faire / I'm the reason everybody here" equals an excuse, finally, to include Fitty and Pavement's Steve Malkmus in th...
