    Mumford & Sons at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, 9/17/2013

    Mumford & Sons Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion September 17, 2013 It's hard to think of a band that's been so heavily vilified over such a short period of time as Mumford & Sons. Even perennial doormats like Nickelback and Coldplay were given a pass for an album or two, but almost from the moment t ... More >>

    One Grumpy Editor. Houston's No. 1 Hit Music Station. All Damn Day.

    Generally I become more and more skeptical about what's "hot." This is also known as "getting older" or, to paraphrase Chris Rock, not wanting to be the old guy in the club. But for me that skepticism has always come with a certain morbid curiosity about what makes some songs so popular and why. Thi ... More >>

    The Best Concerts In Houston This Week: Carrie Underwood, Filter, Paramore, etc.

    Carrie Underwood Toyota Center, April 23 Seemingly shoved off the queen-of-country throne by Taylor Swift's ascendancy, Carrie Underwood may have taken the title right back now that Swift has crossed over completely into the pop realm.

    Your Easy Guide to Purchasing Houston Concert Tickets... In 1983

    I went to see Paul McCartney at Minute Maid last year. A friend bought the tickets, and I asked if he'd mail mine so I could hold it in my hand and marvel at this new, treasured souvenir. He said he would just email it to me as a PDF once he'd received a confirmation in his inbox. Rewind: Last Nig ... More >>

    Killing the Music: The Mumfordization of Top 40 Radio

    Twenty-eight. That is the amount of times in one day that I heard the songs play. Between my daily morning routine, my various commutes throughout the city, and a quick visit to CVS, "Home" came on eight times, "Ho Hey" seven, "Little Talks" also seven, and "I Will Wait" six. Phillip Phillips and c ... More >>

    Opening for Clapton Makes the Wallflowers Glad All Over

    When listeners first heard the hypnotic, disco-inflected "Reboot the Mission," the first single off the Wallflowers' recent Glad All Over CD, they could probably be forgiven for the momentary shock.

    Your 2013 Music Festival Outlook (Texas Edition)

    I don't know about you, but I am not totally in love with winter weather. Yes, it affords you the ability to wear beanies and cool fingerless gloves and dress like a hoodlum, but it's the heat that I love the most. That's why I love thinking about music festivals, because that's where we all get t ... More >>
