It's been said that if you have lived in Texas for at least a decade and haven't at least been in the vicinity of a Bob Schneider show, you are probably lying. Our introduction to the Austin-based Schneider was kind of heartbreaking, but that's another story for another blog, or maybe we've already told that one. If we did, Google that shit. Either way, he's a solid dude.
He plays here in Houston. A lot. Like, every few weeks, including a show Saturday night at the House of Blues, and another one at McGonigel's Mucky Duck August 4. He has a rabid following that doesn't get sick of his tales of love and woe. He manages to meld those feelings into catchy nuggets of pop-rock and folk. Not too hard, not too soft, with his familiar voice pulling the songs right into the living room of your brain. His newest album, A Perfect Day, came out in April.
