    Balaclavas: Inferno

    "Before me nothing but eternal things / Were made, and I endure eternally." These two lines, inscribed on the gates of Hell in Dante's Inferno, precede the more memorable "Abandon every hope, ye who enter here." But the former lines lend the latter ...

    Drive-By Truckers, A to Z - Alabama Ass Whuppin'

    Houston's Austin City Limits festival spillover season gets underway Wednesday with an overdue visit from Alabama-born, Georgia-dwelling brigands Drive-By Truckers. Wrongly pigeonholed as the thinking man's Lynyrd Skynyrd (who are pretty thoughtful t...

    White Swan Runs Red - The Second Ward hardcore venue got a little too punk last month

    Every time Road House comes on TV, we watch it no matter what. As a matter of fact, Patrick Swayze has been the subject of more arguments in our household than should reasonably be expected. We mention this not because it's particularly pertinent,...

    In Need: Signal to Noise - Houston experimental-music journal needs a hand

    Recently, one of Noise's contributors forwarded me an e-mail from Pete Gershon, editor and publisher of Houston-based experimental-music journal Signal to Noise. Facing rising production costs, slow-to-pay advertisers and, well, just being a print pu...

    The New Year

    A band taking four years between recordings is cause for both anticipation and dread, and on The New Year's The New Year, the results bring equal parts frustration and relief. Kadane brothers Matt and Bubba continue to anchor the Dallas-based band, ...

    The Queers

    The Buzzcocks and Ramones may have laid the groundwork for pop-punk, but the Queers helped make sure the genre would never grow up. After 25 years, Joe Queer still pines for that girl in third period, still appreciates a good party and still sings a...

    Flaco Jimenez

    Rumor has it Flaco Jimenez has been known to take a drink or two. There are also those who claim, "That cat is messed up all the time." Whatever his state of mental impairment (or improvement), there's no denying the 69-year-old San Antonio accordio...

    These Are Powers

    There are certain sonic signatures within Chicago and Brooklyn's prevailing indie scenes that collide oh so colorfully in These Are Powers, a trio that's at once rhythmically tight and freakishly blurry. The band's hypnotic scrawls and sprawl were e...

    The Smokin' Joe Kubek Band with Bnois King

    One of the more unlikely musical pairings in contemporary Texas blues -- or any other genre -- is also one of the longest-lasting. If there was any doubt, the Smokin' Joe Kubek Band and compatriot Bnois King cement their bond with the title of rece...

    The Faint: Fasciinatiion

    Cut Copy and Hercules & Love Affair have been burning up dorm-room dance floors. Then there's the rise of the more richly histrionic LCD Soundsystem, not to mention the textured Burial and grotesquely distorted Justice. It all makes Omaha quintet th...

    Juliana Hatfield: How to Walk Away

    Solo or with one of her bands (Blake Babies, Juliana Hatfield Three), Juliana Hatfield's moody MOR jangle-and-coo always anticipated an indie-rock styled for Jay Leno. While that's not necessarily a diss, her sweet child-voice requires a bitter trad...

    Irma Thomas: Simply Grand

    File Irma Thomas's new Simply Grand under "Why didn't I think of this?" Pair the New Orleans vocal icon/national treasure with great pianists and top-shelf songs; it's like that Guinness ad: "Brilliant!" What could be more New Orleans than Irma Thom...

    Tonight's show with San Francisco indie-dance trio Xiu Xiu (above), ex-Geraldine Fibbers screecher Carla Bozulich's new band Evangelista and Common Eider, King Eider - the only band I can think of named after a duck except, well, the Duhks - has be...

    Wax Museum: MP3s from Allison & South Funk Blvd., the Royal Masters and the Chocolate Glass

    Sometimes history is a funny thing. You look back and all of a sudden there's something in the past you don't remember happening. One case in point would be this Allison & South Funk Blvd. single. When the TSU Toronadoes finally reached their breaki...

    Tonight: The Melvins and Big Business at Warehouse Live

    True underground-rock royalty, the Melvins have been soundtracking lung-busting bong marathons for more than two decades. All Music Guide calls the trio's music "one massive, oozing pile of dark slime," but it's some pretty resilient, influential s...

    Aftermath: Steely Dan at Verizon Wireless Theater

    Compared to their live shows, most classic rock bands may sound a bit constrained on their studio albums, but the brainy boys behind Steely Dan have always had the opposite challenge. Vocalist/keyboardist Donald Fagen and compadre guitarist Walte...
