    Hayes Carll

    I suspect there is a contingent that will howl long and loud that Hayes Carll's third album (and first on the Lost Highway label) is too slick, too Nashville, not raw enough. In their way they will be right, but I don't want to get into that argumen...

    British Sea Power, with Film School, Colour Music and the Watermarks

    UK indie-rockers British Sea Power were Ivy League smarty-pants way before Vampire Weekend came on the scene. On their 2003 debut, The Decline of British Sea Power, they penned melancholy songs about old-school Russian literature and obscure histori...

    Dionne Warwick

    Dionne Warwick has disproved that old "no second acts in American lives" saw famously. With a voice both honeyed and dusky, Warwick was frontwoman for one of the greatest partnerships in pop history, Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Their 1960s chart r...

    Streetlight Manifesto, with Dan Potthast and Zox

    Everybody indulges in a guilty pleasure or two. For some, it's eating mayonnaise with a spoon; for others, made-for-TV movies fit the bill. For my wife it's the emotional trash of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Some noble souls choose to brave the judgmen...

    The Bobcat Benefit

    Local bands love benefits. In fact, like the kid in class who needs to pee, they'll hold up their hands and scream "me, me" until they are booked onto the thing. The reason is simple: benefits pay the same as most of their regular gigs, but at least...

    Sitting Down with La Porte's Buxton

    La Porte quartet Buxton are fresh off their most successful tour to date, a weeklong all-Texas jaunt that took them as far west as Marfa, as far north as Lubbock and as close to home as College Station. Seated at a table at the Black Lab five days a...

    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

    Do: Check out Headlights if you're into jangly, upbeat, keyboard-infused rock. I'd heard about this Illinois quintet but had never heard them until today. They live up to all the compliments; lovely female vocals with a Feist(y) feel are complimented...
