    Weekend Music: No Money, No Problem

    This is a good weekend to be broke. Not only is the Westheimer Block Party tomorrow afternoon, but Sunday brings Rice Radio's 17th annual Outdoor Show at the university's Intramural Fields 2 and 3, somewhere near the business school. Brooklyn indie-r...

    Mp3: The Tontons, "Sea and Stars"

    That said, this Zeppelin-conjuring song as a whole has the feel of a demo. There's a nice guitar solo, but in the end the song lacks the epic finale Asli's voice requires. But putting on my fantasy record producer's cap, I'm damned if I have any id...

    Last Night: Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige at Toyota Center

    You could literally smell Mary J. Blige from like ten feet away. It was insane. It must have been all the product on her. If I didn't know what "fabulous"smelled like before, I do now. It was amazing, like a separate presence onto itself. She must ...

    Marty Stuart's American Odyssey Does Houston

    Marty Stuart is definitely one of the more interesting also-rans of Travis Tritt-era popular country. He only had a couple of real hits - "Hillbilly Rock" and "Little Things" both reached No. 8 in 1990 - but he's got a great pedigree. He was married ...

    Mp3: Studemont Project's "Mont Rose"

    I dunno, this track makes me nervous, and I guess that's the point seeing as how it's all about the ongoing Fat Cat developer's rape / destruction of Montrose. And I like the guitar interlude. But overall this feels too hectic and jittery and I'...

    Is Johnny Guitar Watson's "Telephone Bill" the First Houston Rap?

    What's the first rap song by a Houston artist? It's debatable but most cite a few records that came about between 1985 and 1987. But there's another much older often forgotten candidate - Johnny "Guitar" Watson's "Telephone Bill." By 1980, when he...

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

    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

    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...

    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...
