    Tha Fucking Transmissions Are For the Children

    As you can well see from this photo (ain't they cute?) from last Saturday's Westheimer Block Party, where the boisterous local rap-rockers killed Avant Garden's outdoor stage. TFT vocalist Cornbredd, by the way, will be a contestant - repping the H...

    Drenched in Neil: More from the Diamond Mine

    Photos by Craig Hlavaty You know, at least they're not at a Jonas Brothers show. Which is like saying, "Well, at least they're smoking hash and not mainlining speedballs into the veins between their toes." They get a free pass tonight. I bet whe...

    Aftermath: The Cardinals at Verizon Wireless Theater

    Photos by Chris Gray Ryan Adams is not difficult. Not onstage, anyway. Clad in a surely unironic Dokken T-shirt, the wafer-thin Adams - who by all accounts has been clean and sober for a while, but still needs to eat something - went out of his way...

    Tonight: The Sian Alice Group, Also at Walter's on Washington

    True to its name, Sian Alice Group's debut album 59.59, which came out early this year on the Social Registry, clocks in at just under an hour and marvels in the cold contours of time and space. But if the four- to six-piece London ensemble comes o...

    Tonight: A Place to Bury Strangers at Walter's on Washington

    Aftermath: Neil Diamond at Toyota Center

    As I walked into the Neil Diamond concert last night, I was already bathed in decades of derision. Years of being told by popular culture that he was a corny and trite leftover from the coked-over '70s. A sad relic of popular music history, when me...

    Johnny Cash Up In Da Club

    That sound you hear is Johnny Cash spinning in his grave as remixers from all over the 12-inch spectrum get their mitts on "Folsom Prison Blues," "Country Boy" and ten others on Johnny Cash Remixed, out today on Houston's Compadre Records. Or might...

    Tonight: Awesome Color at the Mink

    Damn. Wasn't that something? Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore indirectly turned me on to Awesome Color, a terrifying trio from the wilds of northern Michigan. AC is one of the artists on Moore's Universal-distributed label, Ecstatic Peace, and released t...

    Lonesome Onry and Mean: Kiss My Ass, W

    A few months back I played Steve Poltz's "Street Fighter's Face" (video above) for my daughter and her husband (he's a USAF lifer too), and they both liked the tune a lot. Told from the point of view of a Marine in Baghdad -- "with a swagger and a pr...

    Four Lost Neil Diamond Covers

    Few musicians polarize critics like Neil Diamond, but, love him or hate him, you can't deny his ability to write unforgettable pop numbers. Just consider how many of Diamond's songs have become standards and then, as covers, became standards again....

    Aftermath: Citizen Cope at Verizon Wireless Theater

    Photos by Kris Ex It's impossibly hard to talk about Citizen Cope. His allure is rooted to his ability to remain a closed cipher. His music - old-timey folk, modern-day blues and gully street tales full of the uncounted and forgotten - is at once a...

    Grace Potter & the Nocturnals

    Grace Potter has jammed the antiwar streets enough to get arrested. But if she showed any politics on last year's This Is Somewhere, the protest was mostly veneered by the Nocturnals' adult-alternative rock and Southern-boogie blues, though she cut...

    Rabbit in the Moon

    If your Halloween isn't bizarre enough already, consider the sensory overload of Rabbit in the Moon live: strobe lights, lasers, smoke machines and a sea of costumed bodies writhing in (and perhaps on) ecstasy. Formed in 1991, the three-man Tampa-ba...
