    Drenched In Blog: Broing Down with the Hives

    The Hives are one of the best live shows going, even if they got wrangled into opening for Maroon 5, a monstrosity that hits Houston October 26 at the Toyota Center. I can only imagine the blank stares from margarita-swilling moms and daughters givin...

    Cheeseburgers Al Fresco: The Fondue Monks' Speeding Van vs. a Herd of Cattle

    Bands have van wrecks on the road all the time. Most are just expensive and time-consuming pains in the ass. Few, however, are as strange as the one that Houston's own Fondue Monks were just involved in over the weekend. Monks manager Chris Harkne...

    Drenched In Blog: Gold at the End of Radiohead's Rainbows?

    Just like any other elitist music writer out there, I like Radiohead. I bought OK Computer in ninth grade and listened to it a week straight while I was sick from school. I loved it, as did pretty much all of us. Each album since has been a resoundi...

    The Axiom Lives (for a Weekend)

    By anyone's yardstick (or any other measuring instrument), this weekend's Axiom reunion at Fitzgerald's was a rousing success. The 600-capacity club was packed both nights - I stood in line for 15 minutes waiting to get in Friday - with people old ...

    Misfits, a Love Story - Punk for uncool kids in Nowheresville

    I was 16 years old when my older cousin started dating the guy who would turn me on to "punk rock." This was in a very backward Pennsylvania town during one of my transitional teenage years. By this time, 1996-97, most of the cool kids in my school ...

    Dooney da Priest: "Pull Your Pants Up" - Dallas struggles with saggy drawers

    South Dallas rapper Dooney da Priest (real name: Duwayne Brown) has produced two songs of note in the past couple months. The latest one, "Vote No!," is his foray into politics, a crunk anthem supporting, um, a toll road. Guess writing "Vote no, so ...

    Tool

    Tool's appeal has always been about escapism. The seminal four-piece's alt-metal lurks in the shadows, exploring the darker aspects of society through a calculated mix of complicated rhythms and ambiguous, esoteric lyricism. "There's a third dimensi...

    So much about Coheed and Cambria's work cries out for ridicule: the '70s-art-rock-derived instrumental wankery, the skyscraping, get-your-Geddy-on vocals... Somehow, though, the act's fourth album, No World for Tomorrow, works in spite of itself. Wo...
