Houston's Gone Gaaga for Haaga

15 years ago by John Nova Lomax
The votes have been counted and the shows have been played. The deal's gone down, and the winners have their wonderful trophies. Houston's finest musical extravaganza -- one day in which Houston's downtown is transformed into Sixth Street during South By Southwest -- has come and gone, and a few...

Louis XIV T-Shirts for Sale. Cheap.

13 years ago by Houston Press
Some years back, Michael Haaga played a bill with Hot Hot Heat and Louis XIV at the Engine Room. Haaga thought that Louis XIV, a then-buzzed about band, was pretty good. “I liked what I heard from them at the sound check,” he remembers. And backstage, Haaga told them so,...

Best Band to Break Up in the Past Year

Michael Haaga's Plus and Minus Show

Frog Hair Emerges From the Shadows

4 years ago by William Michael Smith
Frog Hair is a relatively new rock project by four grizzled Houston scene veterans: Pedro Yruegaz (drums), J.J. White (guitar), Scott Ayers (guitar, lap steel) and Michael Haaga (bass). Begun a year ago as a two-piece guitar and drums experiment, Yruegaz and White eventually asked former deadhorse guitarist Haaga to...
