Barry Manilow – Woodlands Pavilion – Spring, TX

Written by Dave Clements Jun 30, 2013 at 08:00 PM Barry Manilow was coming to The Woodlands earlier this year, however, he got sick and had to postpone his show. Perhaps he should have just cancelled it, depending on your point of view. He didn’t cancel so let’s fast forward to this pre-4th of July Sunday…


The Association – Dosey Doe – Spring, TX

Written by Dave Clements Jun 29, 2013 at 08:00 PM If you don’t know the music of the 60’s and 70’s and I mentioned THE Association you might think I was making some reference to organized crime or the mafia. Hmmm, actually when I look at my photos from the show, it occurs to me…


Leon Russell w/ Bonnie Bishop – Gruene Hall – New Braunfels, TX

Written by Dave Clements Jun 28, 2013 at 07:00 PM It was a three and a half hour, slow going, pre-fourth of July holiday drive to get to Gruene Hall. Despite all of that, there was no doubt in this writer’s mind that there  was absolutely no place in Texas he’d rather be than watching…


The Package Tour w/ NKOTB, 98 Degrees & Boyz II Men – Toyota Center – Houston, TX

Written by Dave Clements Jun 27, 2013 at 08:00 PM Eight Boys and Thirteen Thousand girls…how bad can those odds be? That was the audience at the Toyota Center attending ‘The Package’ Tour. If you were to interview any of the 13K ladies who were there to see the New Kids On The Block, Boyz…


Howie Day – Dosey Doe – Spring, TX

Written by Robert B. Johnson (@RobertSatellite on Twitter) Jun 27, 2013 at 07:00 PM An Exceptional Talent To simply call Howie Day “talented” would be greatly understating his abilities. In fact, he may be the very best acoustic singer-songwriter in music today. He is the perfect blend of musician, combining superb vocal chops, stellar timing,…


Pitbull w/ Ke$ha – Woodlands Pavilion – Spring, TX

Written by Dave Clements Jun 22, 2013 at 07:00 PM It was a hot and steamy night in Houston, and everything that these co-headliners attempted to do was also hot and steamy. What a combination for this very large assembled group of patrons of the arts! After considerable reflection each appeared to be very successful…

Written by Robert B. Johnson (@RobertSatellite on Twitter) Jun 22, 2013 at 09:00 PM Interview Before the show, I had a chance to catch up with Shiny Toy Guns. Check out the interview below! A Full Year It had been a full year since I last caught up with Shiny Toy Guns. Back then, the…


Days Drive w/ Tom Lynch – Fitzgerald’s – Houston, TX

Written by James Killen Jun 22, 2013 at 08:00 PM I slipped over to Fitzgerald’s Saturday night to see Days Drive while they were part of a five band line up on the downstairs stage. My son is the bass player in the band that has been playing under that name for about 8 years….


Danny Everitt – Acoustic Souvenir

Written by James Killen Jun 15, 2013 at 12:01 AM I had the opportunity to listen to one of the latest discs to come out of Jack Saunders’ White Cat Studios, Acoustic Souvenir by Danny Everitt. Everitt grew up in Houston and put out several LP’s in the 70’s, and worked with Eric Burden and…


Anne McCue – Almost Austin House Concerts – Pasadena, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Jun 15, 2013 at 08:00 PM Under the radar is a perfect way to describe the artist that is Anne McCue. She was recently brought to town for a gig at Kenny Pipes’ Almost Austin House Concerts via a reliable tip from his bud, Sergio Webb. It led to a full…
