    She & Him: Volume One

    With the possible exception of the three people who look back fondly on Bruce Willis's recording career, we're well acquainted with the eardrum damage that can occur when actors live out their rock-star fantasies. But don't shy away from She & Him's...

    The Mighty Orq: To the Bone

    They must hear it every single show, so it was downright gracious (and no doubt ironic) of the Mighty Orq to thank the people who "yelled 'Play some Stevie!'" in the liner notes of To the Bone. In truth, the Bayou City blues-rockers are much less in...

    SXSW: Percee P at Habana Annex Backyard

    Attending hip hop shows can be a real drag, no matter if it's SXSW or not. You got the over zealous DJ warming up the stage, playing the standards. You have the hype men, who come out and attempt to work up the crowd with the same old call and respon...

    SXSW: Mala Rodriguez at SESAC Day Stage Cafe

    Maybe it's the steady diet of the Geto Boys I was raised on, or maybe it's that my Spanish is pretty shabby these days, and I don't speak any other languages. But I've never been able to digest hip-hop in other languages very well. Even the phonetica...

    SXSW: Guitar Shorty and Kimya Dawson

    Two free parties on South Congress this afternoon presented a study in opposites. Down at Yard Dog Gallery, Guitar Shorty tore it up, searing through the blues, all with a half-crazed, white-toothed grin on his face. Dude even played with those te...

    SXSW Extra: What's In My Pockets?

    Good thing I didn't wear my skinny jeans... I've never been a big fan of the SXSW tote bags, decorated though they are by noted artists like Mike Judge and Daniel Johnston. I think they scream "tourist," and save the odd lighter or notepad, there's...

    Wednesday Night SXSW plans: Saul Williams and Lick Lick

    After a 20-minute power nap I'm heading out to let poet/hip-hopper Saul Williams get my blood flowing and my mind exploding. If you didn't catch Williams when he was on tour with At the Drive-In or Mars Volta, then I suggest joining Lunchbox and me a...

    Do See Headlights at SXSW, Don't See YACHT
