New Mexico: Heather Nova, "Out in New Me ... More >>

    The Electric Six Is On Tour To Fund Live DVD Project

    In my eyes, one of most underrated rock albums of the past decade has been Electric Six's Fire, released in May 2003. It remains a solid set of thirteen, smutty, decadent rock cuts, and personally I find it hard to find a favorite after all these years. "Gay Bar", "She's White", "Naked Pictures (O ... More >>

    Artist Suggestions For A New Saturday Morning Tribute CD

    On of the few CDs I still listen to in this amazing digital age is Saturday Morning: Cartoon's Greatest Hits.

    He Said She Said: Fire In The Earhole!, Part 2

    ​To be honest, She Said can't really remember the last time she stepped foot inside Mai's. It was definitely several years ago, before she left Houston and then came back again, and it was probably with this guy, probably after a show. She Said probably had some Thai curry and hot tea, but she can ... More >>
