Los Lonely Boys w/ Alejandro Escovedo – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Oct 30, 2008 at 08:00 PM Got to break my cherry at the latest new music venue in H-Town recently. The latest House of Blues opened in downtown with a bill that I personally thought was ass backwards. With no disrespect to Los Lonely Boys, a stalwart like Alejandro Escovedo is…


Kings of Leon w/ We Are Scientists & The Stills – Verizon Wireless Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Oct 28, 2008 at 08:00 PM Slid into a gig recently like a hot knife thru butter in Houston. I had read an interview in the Rolling Stone with Chrissie Hynde, who is one of my all time idols in rock and roll history, and in that interview she was asked…

Wild Moccasins w/ David Vandervelde – The Mink – Houston, TX

Written by James Dillon Oct 13, 2008 at 08:00 PM This time of year is always pretty good for shows in Houston, even though this is when school tends to kick everyone’s ass, and jobs take up even more time. But only a few days after the stellar Walkmen/Young Mammals show, and only two days…


The Walkmen w/ The Young Mammals – Walter’s On Washington – Houston, TX

Written by James Dillon Oct 09, 2008 at 08:00 PM Nights that involve either the Walkmen or The Young Mammals aren’t simply shows. They are hot and sweaty, full of debauchery, and you may or many not remember parts of it. The first time I saw The Walkmen was back in 2005 when the opened…
