Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines – Anderson Fair – Houston, TX

Written by James Killen Feb 22, 2013 at 08:00 PM If this show had been anyone but Terri and Lloyd, I’d have stayed home to nurse my respiratory infection. But then, what kind of a stalker would I be, if I let a little fever and cough keep me away? Its part of the anticipation…


Leeann Atherton – Maria’s Taco Xpress – Austin, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Feb 22, 2013 at 06:00 PM Tradition seems to be taking a back seat these days in our ever busy, overly-connected world. That’s not a good thing to an old-fashioned “tradionalist” like myself and my better half, Rose. Part of my life since the early 90’s has been to make a…


Dave Mason – Dosey Doe – Spring, TX

Written by Dave Clements Feb 21, 2013 at 08:00 PM If you are a Classic Rocker, live anywhere in the greater Houston area, and  don’t work the night shift I sure hope you were one of the almost 250 music lovers that joined me at Dosey Doe’s Big Barn in The Woodlands this past Thursday…


Ray Bonneville – Almost Austin – Pasadena, TX

Written by Samuel Barker Feb 16, 2013 at 08:00 PM A couple of years ago, I stepped outside of a gig we were playing down in Galveston to watch who was on-stage next door at the Old Quarter Acoustic Café. No better way to spend a break than watching someone through the window. The man…


Soulhat w/ Thunderosa – Continental Club – Houston, TX

Written by James Killen Feb 15, 2013 at 10:00 PM I remember friends from high school graduating from UT in Austin with marketable degrees and remaining in Austin, working as waiters or landscapers just to avoid leaving town and starting their adult lives. Austin might as well have been Never-Never Land for those Peter Pan…


Imagine Dragons – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Robert Johnson Feb 12, 2013 at 08:00 PM It may be hard to believe, but Imagine Dragons had its first release just over three years ago. Although the five-song EP helped the band generate some buzz, it went largely unnoticed by the mainstream audience. It was with follow-up EPs, Hell and Silence and…


Simpson, Good and Harlan – JP Hops House – Katy, TX

Written by James Killen Feb 09, 2013 at 08:00 PM It’s been a while since I’ve seen Matt Harlan, so I opened a spot on my calendar when Eddie Ferranti told me that he’d be appearing at the Hops House on the ninth. It was also a good chance to check out a couple of…


Wendy Colonna, Bruno Deneckere and the Lazybones – Anderson Fair – Houston, TX

Written by James Killen Feb 08, 2013 at 08:00 PM Eddie Ferranti and I were talking back and forth the day before Wendy Colonna’s Anderson Fair Show about how we had just covered one of her gigs back in September and how nice it would be just to kick back and listen to some great…


Testament: An Interview with Chuck Billy

Written by Ken Simmons Feb 06, 2013 at 12:00 PM HMR: Chuck, I want to thank you for your time and let you know it’s an honor and privilege to interview the Leader of the Legions and one of the best frontmen ever. Chuck: Thanks man, I appreciate it. HMR: First of all, I want…


The Hems – Barnes House Concerts – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Feb 02, 2013 at 08:00 PM Dusty McClellan and Jamie Zanelotti traveled different roads to get to the musical hotbed of Austin, Texas and wound up finding each other along the way. Dusty came from Houston in 2010 and Jamie from Maryland, then they got together playing in a roots rock…
