  • Only Hope For Me: My Chemical Romance at HOB
    Watching a band develop is a lot of fun, and My Chemical Romance have done just that. Yet, they have managed to stay true to their roots while doing so. Sure, their new album The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys sounds nothing like any of their prior work, but the familiar themes are all...

"Have a Nice Day?" "Keep the Faith?" You wonder sometimes if JBJ eats a lot of fortune cookies. But what...

  • Third Coast Cooking at Bootsie's Heritage Cafe
    A colleague and I were enjoying the bluesy rock on the hi-fi at Bootsie's Heritage Cafe when our genial waitress delivered our lunch entrées. The music faded in my head as I eyed the chicken-fried rabbit perched atop a creamy bed of grits. My first forkful delivered a succulent bite of thigh...

  • Astros Vs. Mets: Minute Maid Parkour
    The biggest news from Friday's Astros game against the Mets wasn't the fact that the team was sold, or Carlos Lee's 2,000th hit, but a renegade fan who rushed the field, then evaded police by climbing, Spiderman-style, onto the roof of some covered seats. Our photog didn't catch the guy, though...
