The Houston area has been graced by the wildly opinionated Waco resident Ted Nugent and his grindingly satisfying rock and roll revue twice in the past year alone, in Pasadena last summer and at Nutty Jerry's in Winnie this past April. This is the Nuge's first Inner Loop gig in quite some time, though, and this current run features a reunion with Nugent's late-'70s vocalist/rhythm guitarist Derek St. Holmes. This House of Blues stop will no doubt bring out the self-professed patriots from all corners of the Bayou City to hear hits like "Stormtroopin'" and "Wango Tango," and the smattering of soul and rock covers the Nuge has been trotting out live. Uncle Ted's live shows and his conservative ideals are a package deal and have been for some time, so if you are at all squeamish about anti-Obama rhetoric, you should probably stay home. If you just want to rock out, then you will be justly rewarded.
