Well, the Justice Department has approved the

Live Nation/Ticketmaster monopoly merger.

What does this mean for you, the average concertgoer? Well, even more inflation on the already-ridiculous $6 Lone Stars at House of Blues.

Free Press Houston

had a well-written cover story last spring about

the other possible pitfalls

of the deal. New music videos from local artists abound. Here's

Flowers to Hide


Benjamin Wesley


Peekaboo Theory

(loves it).

Muhammad Ali

wants to see you nekkid for theirs, and

Hell City Kings'

video should be out soon.

Houston's music scene got some coverage in national blogs last week too.

Street Boners and TV Carnage

linked to

Late Nite Pie

as an awesome music venue, but MCM hasn't seen a show there since the restaurant was in the old garage on Elgin. But they do praise Whataburger, so all is forgiven. And Minnesotan fanzine blog Cultureal Sindicate recently ran a


story on Houston's underground hip-hop scene. If you missed MCM's current obsession Roky Moon & BOLT at Rudz this past weekend, here's their un-glittery leader in Joe Mathlete's living room, playing

a touch of Bowie

. Speaking of the BOLT crew, they'll join

the Wild Moccasins at SXSW

in March. And here are the Moccs, along with Tyagaraja,

Live from SugarHill

. Yo La Tengo is playing Warehouse Live on Thursday. Ten years ago (give or take), they played in Houston at Rudys. If you missed


, have a listen to the live concert audio, courtesy of

Hands Up user jvan

. MCM thinks this is awesome and should happen more often. Do you have your tickets for


yet? Forget all that artsy fartsy crap. Runaway Sun, Ryan Scroggins and the Trenchtown Texans, Benjamin Wesley and Ceeplus Bad Knives are all playing. Plus, you could meet some hawtsome art-school lover there and be freaks for the rest of your young lives together. Speaking of art plus music, local artist

Jenny Schlief

has incorporated inspiration from Michael Jackson, DJ Screw and low-rider culture into her most recent exhibition, on display through February 13. One more art thang. Houston's eventual successor to the throne of

Uncle Charlie


Jason McElweenie

, is having a

poster show at Warehouse Live

Thursday night, before the Yo La Tengo show. While supplies last, he'll be giving away some of his prints and

selling others

. And if you ain't got plans for Sunday night, Something Fierce is having their

7" release party at the Mink. Isn't that cover perty?Have something that should be included in Magnolia City Mixtape? Leave a comment below or email brittanieshey (at) gmail (dot) com.
