    Reverberations: Phenomenauts and Black Angels

    It's once again time for a Reverberation at Boondocks, so be there this Saturday, and be careful on the stairs. And if you're the sort who likes to start early (and what really constitutes "early" on a Saturday?), you won't do much better than sho...

    Mister Beebe Goes to Marfa

    It's official, the votes are in, and David Beebe is the newest member of Marfa City Council. He won by a razor-thin two-vote margin. Anyone want to bet on how long it will be before he's the mayor?

    Last Night: Scott Miller at the Mucky Duck

    Miller opened with an instrumental from his upcoming, untitled record and then proceeded to play five more vocal numbers from the same. "Freedom's a Stranger," Miller's very own "Night Moves," was the first song I could sing along with and it came ab...

    Lonesome Onry and Mean: An Open Letter to Ed Shane, Publisher of Best In Texas

    In a rambling full-page editorial slyly couched in terms of his deceased mother's instruction "if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all," publisher Ed Shane (the Shane of Shane Media Services here in Houston) claimed I was "an insen...

    T.H.E. FLY and Rooster: The Smoke CD

    As we all know, rappers do not lie. They're like the George Washingtons of the music industry. But when T.H.E. FLY and Rooster say they're destined to be bigger than Thriller during "Mphatigo" on their latest LP, The Smoke CD, we tend to believe the...

    The Roots Will Not Apologize - ?uestlove and company: Those who don't like our angriest album can step right off

    Precisely 88 mph at Etro Lounge - Montrose Throwback

    People who listen to '80s music do not like to fight. It's weird. Like, when was the last time you were sitting around listening to Depeche Mode and thought, "I feel like kicking some ass right now"? It just doesn't happen. That's why you can feel sa...

    Tremoloco

    Even though they are from East Los Angeles and have close ties to Los Lobos, there are few repertoires that scream "Gulf Coast" like Tremoloco's. No matter whether the language is Spanish or English; the style honky-tonk, Tex-Mex or rock and roll; t...

    Nosaprise

    Nosaprise, the trebly-voiced poet-rapper born Nosa Ebedor, is the antithesis of Houston rap; at least, that's the skin-deep evaluation you'll hear about him from most. And we suppose the "Not Typical Houston" label is correct. After all, he's th...

    Mates of State

    Usher : Here I Stand
