Written by Samuel Barker Mar 31, 2007 at 08:00 PM It was 9 years ago that I walked into the dimly lit Satellite Lounge here in Houston, Texas to see my first Bottle Rockets show. As I walked up to the bar, I stood next to a pudgy bearded guy drinking with a straw hat…


Todd Snider & the Nervous Wrecks – Warehouse Live – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Mar 29, 2007 at 08:00 PM “B-Double E-Double R-UN”! That’s what kept resonating in my head after enjoying a fun evening covering Todd Snider the other night in H-Town.

Written by Abel Carmona Mar 16, 2007 at 08:00 PM What happens when your wife ask you to cover a show and you have no idea who it is, I’ll tell you. You end up at a Scissor Sisters show and once I looked them up and found out who they were, I really wasn’t…


Toadies – Verizon Wireless Theater – Houston, TX

Snow Patrol, OKGo – Verizon Wireless Theater – Houston, TX

Written by James Dillon Mar 11, 2007 at 08:00 PM The first thing I noticed when I got to the Verizon Wireless Theater on Sunday, March 11th, was the line outside. The show was completely sold out, and everyone with a ticket was waiting in line in hopes of getting a good spot close to…


Deerhoof w/ Macromatics – Numbers – Houston, TX
