But the movie that in many ways put Houston on the map in the world's eyes -- how come nobody ever brings up Terms of Endearment, though? -- frankly hasn't aged all that well. Pulpish B-movie fare to begin w ... More >>

    Five Great Musical Duos-In-Waiting

    Last month at Starbucks, waiting on my Grande Pike, I spied on the sales counter a curious item. It was a CD featuring duets by the dude from Green Day and Norah Jones.

    The Best Concerts In Houston This Weekend

    Terry Allen McGonigel's Mucky Duck, January 19 It doesn't take long to notice that country-folk musicians from Lubbock are a little different. Whether it's all that flat surrounding them, the supposed UFO visits, or something else, they always seem a little more metaphysical than their peers. With ... More >>

    All of 31 years old (growl), Jackie Greene's preternatural resemblance to hip '70s roots-rockers like J.J. Cale and Little Feat has already led The New York Times to dub the San Francisco singer-songwriter "the prince of Americana." He has already sang lead with Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh's gro ...
