    Stageside Blogging: A Brief Interlude

    We're on a break right now, waiting for Arthur Yoria, and some more awards, but the John Evans Band (above) was all shook up a minute ago. Now it's Arthur Yoria's turn (below). I hear a little Coldplay in there, and a lot of harmonica. Beetle ju...

    Civil Disobedience at Scout Bar - A place to feed Clear Lake's passive-aggressive rock needs

    Scout Bar (18307 Egret Bay Blvd., Clear Lake) is not what we were expecting. See, the combination live-music venue and dance club was opened by Thomas Wilson in 2004. Wilson is keyboardist and vocalist for The Hunger, the still-performing local...
