Experience Hendrix – Arena Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Jim Bille Mar 22, 2012 at 08:00 PM Jimi Hendrix music was on the bill for at least three hours last week as the Experience Hendrix tour made a stop at The Arena Theater. I have wanted to see this show for a number of years now and believe this may have been…


Shiny Toy Guns – SXSW – Austin, TX

Written by Robert Johnson Mar 17, 2012 at 06:00 PM A couple years ago, I read a review about a Shiny Toy Guns concert. It said, the “shine” had come off. That’s totally bogus. I saw Shiny Toy Guns twice during this year’s SXSW festivities in Austin, TX and I can attest that this band’s…


Bonnie Bishop – Dosey Doe – Spring, TX

Written by Michael Pittman Mar 15, 2012 at 07:00 PM I’ve been trying to get to this review for some time now and I hope I’m not too late, but I moved. I don’t need to tell you that it’s like throwing all your stuff up in the air and watching it land all over…

Written by Traci Rogers Mar 13, 2012 at 07:00 PM I finally had an opportunity during my spring vacation to visit Houston’s Natachee’s Supper’N Punch for my first Troubadour Tuesdays happy hour, emceed by FM 90.1/KPFT’s Rick Heysquierdo.  On the second Tuesday of each month, Americana music enthusiasts and novices gather for a no-cover-charge party…


Whitehorse – Mucky Duck – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Mar 13, 2012 at 07:30 PM We nearly missed a killer Canadian duo when they slid into H-Town under the monikor of ‘Whitehorse’ instead of Doucet & McClelland! Rose & I caught Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland in January 2011 at this same intimate venue, McGonigel’s Mucky Duck, and we were…


KPFT’s Birthday Bash – Mucky Duck – Houston, TX

Written by James Killen Mar 11, 2012 at 02:00 PM I have had Sunday March 11th set aside for months in anticipation of what has proven to be one of the best music values of the Houston entertainment calendar year after year. I even dragged an old friend in from San Antonio, promising him a…


Tommy Womack w/ Lisa Oliver-Gray – Almost Austin – Pasadena, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Mar 10, 2012 at 07:00 PM Customer appreciation is a term that mainly just gets lip service in today’s greed filled world, but, fortunately, for Rose and I, that was not the case this evening in Pasadena, Texas. Kenny Pipes runs a house concert series called Almost Austin for six years…


Melissa Manchester – Dosey Doe – Spring, TX

Written by Dave Clements Mar 10, 2012 at 08:00 PM What a surprise my wife and I had at Dosey Doe in The Woodlands this past Saturday night!  And I really shouldn’t have been surprised if I’d thought about it.  Melissa Manchester’s performance was ‘off the charts’.  Steve & Joan Said, owners of Dosey Doe…


Big Head Todd and the Monsters – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Traci Rogers Mar 02, 2012 at 08:00 PM Colorado’s Big Head Todd and the Monsters won a welcome as big as Texas when they played to a packed House of Blues in Houston on Friday, March the second. It was almost a year ago that NASA’s Johnson Space Center hosted BHTM’s “Blue Sky”…
