    Reverberations: Amplified Heat, Born Liars, Black Black Gold and The Contrast

    The Westheimer Block Party is this Saturday. Here's the line-up. Be there. Then, Sunday morning, drag yourself out of your stupor and over to Rice for the KTRU Outdoor Festival. Is there much "garage rock" at either of these events? Not really...

    A Stopover in Strait Country

    Muxtape Monday: African Diaspora

    Editor's note: This muxtape no longer exists in its current form. Have you ever heard of www.muxtape.com? Apparently, it's this new site where you can share whatever songs you want legally. Or something. Apparently. At any rate, I made my very firs...

    The Lowrider Band - You might take War's name, but you can't take away their music

    While the name "Lowrider Band" may not be familiar, their set-list certainly is, as a sweet harmonica riff wafts through funky material like "The Cisco Kid," "All Day Music," Slippin' Into Darkness," "Why Can't We Be Friends?" and "Low Rider." It's ...

    Steve Earle and Allison Moorer

    Her husband might be the headliner with his name in much bigger print in the ads, but Allison Moorer could very well steal the show. She'll certainly be more enchanting, with the languidly melodic way she interprets songs from her 2007 collection of...

    Band of Heathens

    Austin's Band of Heathens has a nice little notch on its belt: being named the best new band in Austin at last year's Austin Music Awards. Not too shabby. But maybe it was just an off year? Nah, the fellas in the Band of Heathens bring it just...

    Elf Power, with Lazy Horse and the Missing Files

    Before amorphous Canadian musical collectives like Broken Social Scene rose to prominence (in certain circles, anyway) with forever-changing rosters and deadly pop hooks veining a mountain of free-form jamming, a tribe of wayward Americans known as ...

    Genghis Tron, with Converge, the Red Chord and Coliseum

    In addition to having possibly the coolest moniker ever conceived, Genghis Tron is blessed with a genuinely idiosyncratic electro-metal sound. Fusing the synth-driven sensibilities of electro with metal's brutal crunch has led most acts toward the l...

    Monotonix: Body Language

    It used to be that a band's records enticed you to the live show. Though a studio recording, Monotonix's Drag City debut EP Body Language, on the other hand, is best appreciated as a memento of the delirious tumult this band puts on live. You kno...

    She & Him: Volume One

    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...
