    Alicia Keys and Jordin Sparks

    The spring's biggest R&B tour got off to a rocky start, with American Idol champ Jordin Sparks sitting out the first run of dates thanks to a vocal hemorrhage and Alicia Keys canceling two shows last month as a result of swollen vocal cords. That sa...

    Fire on the Strings Bluegrass Festival, featuring The Claire Lynch Band

    About 13 years ago, on a deep dark summer night, I was perhaps unwisely attempting to coax a 1979 Malibu Classic station wagon up and over Monteagle Mountain, halfway between Chattanooga and Nashville in southeastern Tennessee. I was tuned in to AM-...

    Culturcide: Gigs for an Imaginary Audience

    Back in the early and middle '80s, Culturcide bypassed then-prevalent synth-pop in favor of a form of electronic punk rock that evolved into industrial. This odds-and-sods collection offers 12 demos, live jams and unreleased tracks for the coroner's...

    No Age: Nouns

    Everybody has a different definition of "indie rock." For this American dude who smoked mad weed and aimlessly wandered some Midwestern campus in the mid-'90s, it will always be about shattered pop buried in temperamental noise and lo-fi amateurism....

    Marcia Ball: Peace, Love & BBQ

    A stalwart specialist in Gulf Coast blues/R&B/zydeco, Marcia Ball is already familiar to Texas audiences for her clear-toned vocals and pounding piano -- the imaginary musical daughter of Irma Thomas and Professor Longhair. And though she rarely dev...

    An evening with perennial Houston street hustlers Big Body Click - Square Business

    There's something strangely endearing about someone selling you a hand-packaged, homemade CD. It may seem like just another ho-hum "artist" looking for a way to make ends meet. When you really think about it, though, the artist is trying make somet...

    What's in a Name? - Sammy's at 2016, now with less Sammie

    The size of a man's hands and feet is related to the size of his, er, penis, if you catch our drift. (Wink.) Or so claims singer Faye Robinson. "If a man has fat hands and long ol' feet," bellows Robinson during a Saturday-night performance of th...

    Grand Theft Auto X: The Screwston Chronicles

    As many if not most of my literally dozens of longtime readers know, it's safe to say that I am not a fan of the vast bulk of Houston radio. Outside of KACC's unrepentant rock from the saltgrass prairie down in Alvin, occasional moments of clarity o...

    Smoke, Mirrors and Rainbows - Overcoming chronic Radiohead fatigue

    Dear Radiohead, It pains me to say this, but I'm afraid that, unlike several thousand of my fellow Houstonians, as well as people from all over Southeast and Central Texas, I won't be attending your concert this Saturday in The Woodlands. Let me ...

    Lelia Rodgers's Matagorda Island Discs

    This week's Matagorda Island Discs comes to us from Lelia Rodgers. Officially, she's the owner of Rudyard's Pub, but if America was a monarchy, she'd also be the Duchess of North Montrose. "My first album was a greatest hits compilation (Time Pie...

    Mp3: Jon Cartwright's "Plural Girl Blues"

    The song might not make mention of all the recent developments, but with its "what's your name again?" and "I got 13 pages of honey-do's," it definitely has some fun. -- Keith Plocek...

    Q&A: Little Steven Van Zandt

    With James Brown no longer around, Steven Van Zandt might just have the title of the Hardest Working Man in Show Business. In addition to hosting/producing the syndicated 2-hour weekly "Underground Garage" radio program (heard locally on Sunday night...

    Mp3: The Tontons, "Sea and Stars"

    That said, this Zeppelin-conjuring song as a whole has the feel of a demo. There's a nice guitar solo, but in the end the song lacks the epic finale Asli's voice requires. But putting on my fantasy record producer's cap, I'm damned if I have any id...

    Last Night: Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige at Toyota Center

    You could literally smell Mary J. Blige from like ten feet away. It was insane. It must have been all the product on her. If I didn't know what "fabulous"smelled like before, I do now. It was amazing, like a separate presence onto itself. She must ...

    Marty Stuart's American Odyssey Does Houston

    Marty Stuart is definitely one of the more interesting also-rans of Travis Tritt-era popular country. He only had a couple of real hits - "Hillbilly Rock" and "Little Things" both reached No. 8 in 1990 - but he's got a great pedigree. He was married ...

    Mp3: Studemont Project's "Mont Rose"

    I dunno, this track makes me nervous, and I guess that's the point seeing as how it's all about the ongoing Fat Cat developer's rape / destruction of Montrose. And I like the guitar interlude. But overall this feels too hectic and jittery and I'...

    Is Johnny Guitar Watson's "Telephone Bill" the First Houston Rap?

    What's the first rap song by a Houston artist? It's debatable but most cite a few records that came about between 1985 and 1987. But there's another much older often forgotten candidate - Johnny "Guitar" Watson's "Telephone Bill." By 1980, when he...
