Will Sexton Trio – Mucky Duck – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Mar 29, 2013 at 10:30 PM Good Friday is a special day for Rose and I. It is always a grounding experience to participate in the Stations of the Cross. Growing up Catholic and being an altar boy has enhanced the spiritual effect; making me feel grateful for the good life…


Gurf Morlix – Anderson Fair – Houston, TX

Written by James Killen Mar 29, 2013 at 08:00 PM Gurf Morlix appeared Friday night at Anderson Fair to promote his latest album, Gurf Morlix- “Finds the Present Tense”(He never says the title of the album without preceding it with his name). Throughout the evening, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, Gurf repeatedly referred to…


Soul Asylum w/ Recovery Room – Scout Bar – Clear Lake, TX

Written by Samuel Barker Mar 28, 2013 at 10:00 PM Part of the humor in getting older is seeing how quickly the time fades away and how vividly some of the memories remain. One of the first concerts I ever attended was the MTV Alternative Nation Tour. Remember back when MTV had videos? And not just…


Gordy Quist, Owen Temple and Adam Carroll – Mucky Duck – Houston, TX

Written by James Killen Mar 26, 2013 at 07:30 PM Some of my favorite shows at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck over the years have been song swaps between various singer/songwriters. Gordy Quist has been a favorite of mine for several years and I have been trying to catch up with Owen Temple and Adam Carroll for…


Chuck Mead and the Grassy Knoll Boys w/ The Black Lillies – Dosey Does Music Cafe – Conroe, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Mar 16, 2013 at 08:00 PM Doubleheader, 2 for 1 and Double Dip are terms you rarely see anymore, especially when referring to a music show these days. Well, up in Conroe, Texas, we were treated to just that in the form of Chuck Mead & The Grassy Knoll Boys with…


The Grizzly Band – Scout Bar – Clear Lake, TX

Written by Samuel Barker Mar 14, 2013 at 10:00 PM When you see a few hundred concerts, you know that sound. It comes pretty early in the show, normally before the first words are sung, definitely before the first chorus. The sound is a unified band that hits the changes like they’re sharing the same…


Bad Religion – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Robert Johnson Mar 13, 2013 at 08:00 PM It has been a long time since I last played a Bad Religion album. Back in 2000, I couldn’t take The New America out of my CD player. It was catchy and thoughtful, and it turned me into a Bad Religion fan. Because of that…


The Hollisters – Natachee’s – Houston, TX

Written by James Killen Mar 12, 2013 at 06:00 PM I really love those quiet listening rooms where it’s all about the music and there is no flash photography and you get cold stares and shushed if you ask directions to the men’s room. That’s not what happens at Troubadour Tuesday on the second Tuesday…


Two Cow Garage – Ashford Pub – Houston, TX

Written by Samuel Barker Mar 11, 2013 at 10:00 PM Probably my favorite band from Columbus, OH, Two Cow Garage takes elements from all the music I love and mixes it into tunes that find you singing along triumphantly with each word Micah Schnabel and Shane Sweeney belt out. With SXSW going on, we here…


Scarlett Fever – DNA Lounge- San Francisco, CA

Written by Jim Bille Mar 10, 2013 at 08:00 PM The DNA Lounge in San Francisco was the place to be last week when the Road Lords Car Club hosted their Scarlett Fever Charity Event for Retts Syndrome awareness with some of the West Coasts finest rockabilly, punk and psychobilly bands in attendance. The afternoon’s…
