Mojo Nixon and the Toadliquors – Continental Club – Houston, TX

Written by Samuel Barker Mar 18, 2004 at 08:00 PM So, Mojo Nixon is calling it a career. Do I believe he is honestly done? No way in hell will I believe it. An opinionated loudmouth like Nixon will never hang it up for good, but there will be a lot less Mojo in the…


Sonic Youth – Club V – Houston, TX

Written by Samuel Barker Mar 17, 2004 at 08:00 PM Normally, I’m the first person to feel a bit cheated when I go see a band that plays mostly songs from a soon to be released album. However, that is when I’m dealing with a normal band that doesn’t spend a good part of the…
