    Houston Elementary Schoolers Tell Us Their Favorite Songs

    Tonight, Australian children's band The Wiggles premiere their "Taking Off!" world tour at Bayou Music Center. The group has been performing together for more than 20 years, and tonight reveals a brand-new cast, as well as their first female member, Emma Watkins. That's a waste of time, as a recent ...

    Boogie Nights: How Surviving Disco Helped Me Understand EDM

    Some kid I know asked me if I ever plan to write an article about electronic dance music. I told him yeah, probably I would. I guess that seemed too cavalier an answer. He wanted to know if I had something against EDM. Naw, it's all right, I told him. What was I, he wanted to know, some kind of ... More >>

    Hipster Garbage: The Indie Band Drinking Challenge, Round 2

    It's no longer a secret that I hold a deep disdain for most of the hipster music that runs across my desk. I try to give it a fair shot, but I just can't get into it.

    6 Unsolicited Suggestions About the Astros Fan Experience

    The Houston Astros sent me a little fan survey last week, wanting my thoughts on the so-called fan experience at Minute Maid Park.

    Pop Rocks: Your KIds Probably Hate The Muppets

    Don't even bother.​We had some friends over Saturday night, those with children brought theirs, because when you're my age and you want to interact with your age cohort, it's easier to just throw all the rugrats into a room filled with toys and books and let them Battle Royale it out rather th ...

    Pop Rocks: The Worst Part Of Parenting? The TV Shows.

    Don't believe the hype.​Being a parent is tough, especially when the kids are toddler age or thereabouts. You're basically on 24-7 suicide watch while the little hobgoblins cram everything they find into their mouths and clamber to the top of the bookshelves, while at the same time you try to ...

    Idol Beat: Haley Freezes Over

    Suspenders with heels? What were you thinking?​In addition to going on the Idol tour, one of the "perks," if you want to call it that, of making it to the Top 13 or whatever is that you get to come back and sit in the audience during the final selection. I only point this out because of the nu ... More >>

    No, this is not Vampire Weekend.​Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight a battle will be waged for your musical souls.

    Can Anyone Out-Twee Owl City?

    ​Owl City (really just a guy named Adam Young) is a bit of a conundrum. He's perfectly fine to listen to, as long as you pretend that his music is specifically intended for very young children, like the Wiggles or Raffi. Then you pay attention to the meticulous production and catchy hooks instead ... More >>
