    Tonight: Teresa Kolo at Waldo's

    A few years ago, when Kolo was a regular on the acoustic scene (open mics, small showcases), she put out an album called Carapace (I warned you she's smart!) that former Press music editor John Nova Lomax once remarked was "so weird I really didn't k...

    Indian Jewelry: Free Gold

    There's something inherently oceanic about Indian Jewelry's Free Gold, the densely layered second disc from the (mostly) Houston-based collective headed by ex-Japanic/Swarm of Angels provocateur Tex Kerschen and wife Erika Thrasher. The rolling, tri...

    Born-Again Shock Rocker (and Golfer) Alice Cooper - Spider Man

    As he writes in his highly readable autobiography, Alice Cooper, Golf Monster, the father of shock rock credits the game for helping him maintain his sobriety, replacing a fondness for heavy boozing with the decidedly healthier obsession of birdies a...

    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...

    Who Stole the Roll?

    Say I could stick my pen in my heart and spill it all over the stage. Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya, would you think the boy is strange? Hopefully you recognize those lines as the opening verse to the Rolling Stones' 1974 hit "It's ...

    The Mighty Hannibal, Barbara Lynn, Archie Bell

    Maybe it's throwback acts like Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and Amy Winehouse pricking the ears of a younger audience (and more than a few older listeners), but it's clear fresh interest is now stirring in the soul sounds of yesteryear. Fortunately,...

    Jeremy Enigk

    The chance of a conversation about emo not including an in-depth analysis of Sunny Day Real Estate's impact on the genre is slim indeed, because Jeremy Enigk and his SDRE co-conspirators completely revamped the way indie kids listened to music. That...

    Ludo

    Even though Ludo's theatrical strut "Love Me Dead" screams novelty hit, the Moog-buoyed, pop-rock quintet is no flash in the pan. The St. Louis band formed in early 2003, when ex-theater kid Andrew Volpe and metalhead/meditation enthusiast Tim Ferre...

    GZA

    Wu-Tang Clan is the closest thing rap has ever had to the Beatles. As Please Please Me kick-started the British Invasion and flipped the meaning of rock and roll on its axis, the Wu did the same for '90s New York rap. Featuring nine rappers gunning ...
