    Okay, so actually it's just our favorite shows from the past few months, and no doubt we missed a few, but read it and bitch. -- Keith Plocek

    O Unholy Strife: The Worst Christmas Carol Ever

    This apparently unreleased version of "O Holy Night" we found on the Web starts badly, and ascends farther and farther into ever more inglorious strata of crapulosity. Yes, I fell on my knees, but not because I was hearing angels' voices. Not safe...

    Drenched in Blog: Lily Allen Plus One

    Now, I wake from slumber to find that Mrs. Drenched in Blog, Lily Allen, is pregnant. Not with a new album, but with a baby. Inside her body. That apparently one of the Chemical Brothers put in there. All the British press is aflutter today over the ...

    Rap-a-Lot's J. Prince Sues Apple, BET

    We would just like to make one thing clear upfront: To the best of our knowledge, Rap-A-Lot Records owner J. Prince is neither a murderer nor a member of a Chicago gang called The Gangster Disciples. Now then: J. Prince has filed suit against Apple,...

    Drenched in Blog: Top Five Videos of 2007

    These are my favorite videos of the past year. This was the first year when we all stopped waiting on people like MTV and Fuse to give us what we wanted; now we all just YouTube everything. We don't have to sit through Tila Tequila sifting through po...

    Battle of the Dimes: What's in a Name?

    Sometime in the near future, Houston indie-rock fans will have to get used to calling one of their favorite bands something else entirely. Actually, some people will probably always refer to the Westside quartet as the Dimes, but management for anoth...

    Drenched in Blog: Listing 2007

    Yeah, it's that time of year again when all of us people in the rock journo cabals start telling you what we liked this year. Then we make little lists and try out-obscuring one another. It's fun, in a very sad and angry nerd sort of way. Anyway, thi...

    Scarface, M.A.D.E.

    "I write in tears and pray till it hurts," Houston rapper emeritus Scarface offers on the excellent "Who Do You Believe In" on the grim, mournful M.A.D.E., an album that's as much Old Testament as old school. Paranoia is pervasive, vengeance sweet a...

    The Art of Noise - Signal to Noise founder Pete Gershon turns his private collection into art

    Music writers tend to be pack rats, accumulating all sorts of memorabilia over the years: gig posters, flyers and handbills; promotional trinkets and T-shirts; autographed album covers. Pete Gershon is no different, except next week the editor and p...

    Kobain Lounge - Insert Nirvana joke here

    You should have to be at least six feet tall and weigh 195 pounds to be allowed to drive a Ford F-150. Having some facial hair wouldn't hurt either. That's the basis of a somewhat off-kilter but entertaining argument being waged by Louis Wilcott...

    Six Organs of Admittance

    Of all the artists associated with the freak-folk movement, Six Organs of Admittance's Ben Chasny sounds most like a "normal" folk musician, largely because he's a much better guitar player than most of his peers; he's more Jimmy Page than John Fahe...

    The Toasters

    For many people, ska died in the late '90s, around the time it graced the opening credits of the Daisy Fuentes-hosted incarnation of America's Funniest Home Videos. Fortunately, not everybody got the message. Arguably responsible for popularizing Tw...

    MGMT, Yeasayer

    If LCD Soundsystem is the Sound of Silver, then MGMT strikes solid gold. Essentially the duo of former art students Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden, MGMT's disco-glam combines the Bee Gees' Saturday Night Fever with David Bowie's futuristic v...

    Foo Fighters

    Foo Fighters have been many things to many people over their 14-year career. Everyone knows their history: beginning as Dave Grohl's studio project (1995's Foo Fighters), becoming modern rock's last bastion of hope (1997's The Colour and the Shape) ...

    Turtle Island Quartet

    San Francisco's Turtle Island Quartet looks like any other well-scrubbed chamber ensemble, with one crucial difference: Onstage, the group can improvise like seasoned Blue Note veterans. Since forming in 1985, TIQ -- violinist/founder David Balakri...

    Chuck Prophet

    Lately, former Green on Red guitar hero Chuck Prophet has been getting as many props for his producing talents as his own music. That's both good and bad. Prophet, lately working on a new album with Alejandro Escovedo, produced Kelly Willis's Transl...

    Secret Saturday Shows at The Shady Tavern - Rocking the afternoon away

    If it seems that Racket, whether penned by Chris Gray or me, has all too often been a depressing read, that's because lately there has been a mess of bad news to report. Last week's closure of the Proletariat was just the wilted cherry on top of a r...
