Dinosaur, Jr. – Warehouse Live – Houston, TX

Written by Samuel Barker Mar 31, 2006 at 12:00 AM For a while there, the world was without Dinosaur, Jr. Sure, life pretty much went on the same without them, but the music world was a bit less interesting in their absence. Luckily, the band is back. The best way to sum up the performance…


Fall Out Boy, All-American Rejects and more – Reliant Arena – Houston, TX

Written by Todd Spoth Mar 26, 2006 at 08:00 PM For me at least, this show was a last minute effort of sorts. Up until just a few days before I had a quiet night of rest and relaxation planned, needless to say hundreds of Houstonians, young and old, had been waiting for this night…


The Strokes w/ The Eagles of Death Metal – Verizon Wireless Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Samuel Barker Mar 15, 2006 at 08:00 PM For a band that was viewed as a fad band way back in late 2001, The Strokes have proven an amazing ability to keep their sound fresh and their shows sold out. With their latest trip to the Verizon Wireless Theater, the band was promoting…


Shirts for a Cure Tour – Java Jazz – Woodlands, TX

Written by Todd Spoth Mar 15, 2006 at 08:00 PM When this assignment was handed down to me, I admit I was fairly excited. Thursday has always been one of those guilty pleasures and Minus the Bear is one of those “heard of them, but never heard them” bands. For a number of weeks now…


Take Action Tour! – Warehouse Live – Houston, TX

Written by Todd Spoth Mar 14, 2006 at 06:00 PM The Take Action Tour. A genuine cause or just another “cause” to justify the over marketing of the genre? In the past years we have experienced an influx of tours hitting the road under the blanket of a cause, addressing such evils as cancer, war…


The Cult – Warehouse Live – Houston, TX

Written by Samuel Barker Mar 11, 2006 at 08:00 PM For the first time in nearly 5 years, The Cult made their way to Houston, TX to show the city what rock and roll is all about. The band has seen some line-up changes, including the addition of Rob Zombie/Helmet drummer John Tempesta, but in…


Motion City Soundtrack – Meridian – Houston, TX

Written by Todd Spoth Mar 09, 2006 at 08:00 PM Before we engage in a rousing discussion of the night’s events, proper respects should be afforded to the staff of the Meridian for providing me with free, close and safe parking. It’s nice to be able to enjoy (or not enjoy) a show without the…


David Gray – Verizon Wireless Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Abel Longoria Mar 09, 2006 at 08:00 PM David Gray is currently on tour promoting his seventh studio album entitled “Life In Slow Motion” which brought the British singer/songwriter to Houston. Early on while trying to make a name for himself here in the U.S., Gray found himself touring with the Dave Matthews…


Death Cab For Cutie w/ Franz Ferdinand – Verizon Wireless Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Todd Spoth Mar 30, 2006 at 08:00 PM This marked my 9th and last show for March this year and I can say with 100% certainty that it was the best. Seeing Minus the Bear and Jonezetta were both amazing, but Death Cab for Cutie’s set was by far the most entertaining in…
