Hello friends. You shouldn't have to guess too hard where my musical heart lies this weekend. Tonight, of course, it's at the Woodlands. If you're going, do yourself a favor and get there early for openers Back Door Slam and Reverend Run (no kidding)...
Kid Rock, "American Badass"
Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Call Me the Breeze," live in 1976
There's a lot more than that this weekend, though...
Almost as far out as the Woodlands, Katy's own Clint Black kills some time at Sam Houston Race Park. Don't worry, I won't subject you to "Iraq and Roll," and I hope he doesn't either...
...Craig Kinsey steps away from Sideshow Tramps to sing the "Montrose Boulevard Blues" at the Continental Club with Ryan Scroggins and the Trenchtown Texans and Clouseaux. Excellent local bill...
Craig Kinsey, "Big Old Tree" (sorry about the sideways view; it was the only thing I could find)
Locals Glass Intrepid, seen here covering the Shop Boys' ridonkulous hit from last year, swing by Meridian with Earshot, Subversa and Another Day...
Glass Intrepid, "Party Like a Rock Star"
Austin's ever-popular, all-acoustic Asylum Street Spankers dirty up McGonigel's Mucky Duck...
"The Scrotum Song"
Southern rock of a slightly more recent vintage, Montgomery, Alabama's Trust Company blows up Scout Bar...
...and finally, recently outed former corrections officer Rick Ross tries to prove "I'm So Hood" at Warehouse Live.
"Street Money," (feat. Flo Rida)
Ex-Fu Manchu interstellar stoner-rockers (interstoner?) Nebula, also part of the Kyuss family tree, warp Rudyard's with Bay Area bad boys Totimoshi...
"Smokin' Woman," live at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland
Houston's Hamilton Loomis brings his Bo Diddley-bred soul to the Mucky Duck...

"What It Is"
...and Atlanta snowman Young Jeezy, one of about a million rappers in town this weekend for Monday's Ozone Awards, cracks up the Arena Theater with Big Tuck. Have fun, wherever you hit up!
