    A Glimpse of the Future in Hermann Park?

    Last night's Solid Blues show at Miller Outdoor Theater might have been the start of something promising. Not so much for what it was (though it wasn't bad), but for the untapped potential demonstrated by a couple thousand Houstonians - with plenty o...

    Texas Gave Birth to the Worst (Scottish) Album Ever

    See, some Scottish dudes launched a Web site asking their fellow Scots to name their least favorite Scottish albums ever. And an album called White on Blonde, by a group called Texas, took first place. To give you an idea of how much the Scots despis...

    Rotation: Chicago, The Best of Chicago: 40th Anniversary Edition

    Of the fact that Chicago jumped the shark there can be no debate. Few bands have ever done so with such appalling clarity. It still seems hard to believe that even some of the people who were involved with such toe-cringingly vile schmaltz as "Hard t...

    Chamillionaire: Not So Dirty

    Chamillionaire says he uses all that green to, among other things, sometimes bail friends out of jail or pay their rent ("I might be a little too nice like that"), but that's hardly the only place he comes off as the H-town rap community's resident d...

    It's always a good idea to judge people by the way that they look, right? Well, it turns out that once-infallible methodology may be kind of, well, wrong. At first glance, the GRiT Boys appear to be more of the stereotype-reinforcing thug rappers wh...

    There's absolutely nothing complicated about Peter Bjorn & John. Comprised of three guys named -- you guessed it -- Peter, Bjorn and John, the Swedes wear this simplicity on their sleeves. That sort of unself-conscious, and very Nordic, unfussiness ...
