Ted Nugent – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Aug 25, 2011 at 08:00 PM One of the nicest things about being involved with Houston Music Review is all the types of music I get to chew on in the underated music market of Houston, Texas.  My good music buddy Rick  recently told me me: “I never know where you’re at. You go…


Blue October – House of Blues – Houston, Texas

Written by Abel Carmona Aug 22, 2011 at 08:00 PM Hello boys and girls, Houston’s own Blue October made their way through H town for a pair of shows. While the first was a sellout show, we at HMR didn’t get a chance to cover. We did make it in to the second show that…


The Dear Hunter – Warehouse Studio – Houston, Texas

Written by Daniel Barker Aug 22, 2011 at 08:00 PM  When you hear that the music industry is dying, how does that make you feel? I believe that the older you are the harder it hits home. The vise grip that “the industry” had on artist and fans long ago has faded to the point…


Shinyribs – Miller Outdoor Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Aug 19, 2011 at 08:00 PM ‘Shinyribs’ is a spin off band project of the ‘Gourds’ figurehead Kevin Russell.  Rose & I had the pleasure of seeing him by his lonesome at Piney Woods Performances in 2010 and we we’re stoked to see what he could do with a full band in tow. …


Matisyahu – House of Blues – Houston, Texas

Written by Daniel Barker Aug 16, 2011 at 08:00 PM I watched a 32 year old American born Hasidic Jew stage dive onto a crowd of his adoring fans who identify with the gospel he delivers thru a blend of rap, reggae, hip-hop, scat, and Hassan prayer. I searched for the words to describe the…


The Goo Goo Dolls – Woodlands Pavilion – Spring, Texas

Written by Tanya Pedersen Aug 14, 2011 at 08:00 PM It was a pleasantly cool evening for the GooGoo Dolls show at Cynthia Woods. A rare late afternoon storm brought a nice breeze and had me in a great mood to see a show. I didn’t even know that I was going to get a…


Stevie Nicks – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

Written by Tracy Brandon Aug 13, 2011 at 08:00 PM When now veteran HMR photographer Mike Pittman asked me to accompany him to the Stevie Nicks concert on Saturday, August 13 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion to write a review of the concert I was extremely excited. I thought to myself what a great…


Unity Tour – Cynthia Woods Pavilion – The Woodlands, Texas

Written by Tanya Pedersen Aug 12, 2011 at 08:00 PM The Unity Tour was finally here, and this HMR girl headed to the show. After an extra hour’s worth of traffic on my way to the Woodlands, I got to the security gate at the Pavilion just as Sublime with Rome went on, which means…


Matt Harlan / Brian Hudson – Heights Live – Houston, TX

Written by James Killen Aug 12, 2011 at 08:00 PM It’s always a nice evening to spend Friday night at Heights Presbyterian Church listening to some great Texas songsters perform, and Friday was just such an evening. If you’ve not been, the church offers a spacious setting for a “house-like” concert, bringing in the likes…

Written by Abel Carmona Aug 10, 2011 at 08:00PM What’s up boys and girls, been a while since I hit up a show. So I made the long 15minute drive down to the Scout  Bar to catch Richard Patrick and his latest ncarnation of Filter. Haven’t seen Filter do any touring since Buzzfest a few…
