    I Tried to Explain Transgender Doom Metal to My Three-Year-Old

    I wasn't really in a very good mood on Sunday. Taking the Daughter With One F out of the house so the wife can study for nursing school is my task every weekend, and though my daughter is an angel, I would remind you that so was Lucifer.

    Saturday Night: The xx at House of Blues

    The xx, Austra House of Blues February 9, 2013 For a band that revels in bringing icy silence to post-punk, it could be relatively easy for The xx to lose all of that so-called "negative space" when playing to a cavernous venue packed to the gills with Houston concertgoers who love to talk.

    Omotai's Terrestrial Grief Shows Daring Steps Towards Masterpiece.

    Even though Omotai is always on the list of Houston's top metal acts, this is the first time I've really had the opportunity to check them out.

    Project Armageddon: The Phillip Glass Of Metal

    Project Armageddon has an album out, an eight-song collection of a particularly unique brand of stripped-down metal called Tides of Doom. As you may have judged from the name, it's not a sunshine-and-daffodils opus, but rather a bald, stark look at a world careening towards a destruction that it mor ... More >>

    Seven Modern Bands We'd Like To See At The Symphony

    ​This evening at Jones Hall, the Houston Symphony will be playing the music of Queen. Pretty fitting, considering the grand, orchestra-friendly nature of many Queen songs.
