    Darrell Scott

    No less an icon than Guy Clark once scolded a Rockefeller's audience for being rude to his opening act, who also happened to be his guitarist at the time. "You were complete assholes to Darrell," Clark said. "You'll live to regret that." Now Darrell...

    The Return of Cactus Music and Video - A beloved local institution returns from the grave

    Early last year, with good reason, we called March 31 "a day that will live in Houston music infamy." That was Cactus Music and Video's last day of operation. Social scientists speak of "third places," by which they mean informal anchors to commu...

    Kid Rock, Rock n Roll Jesus - Rock n Roll Jesus

    Lucky for Kid Rock he's an egomaniacal dipshit, because otherwise his music would be about as memorable as a Molly Hatchet eight-track sans "Flirtin' with Disaster." Still, the former Mr. Pamela Anderson's good-humored salutes to his own cocksmanshi...
