The Pixies – Bayou Music Center – Houston, TX

Written by Robert B. Johnson (@RobertSatellite on Twitter) Still Going Strong These days, it’s rare to catch a popular act from yesteryear. Many bands have broken up, gotten old, or simply moved on from music. Thankfully, a handful of groups still put out fresh tunes and tour to this day, giving the current generation of…


Chris Knight – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Samuel Barker I must admit that I am a little late to finding Chris Knight. For nearly 2 decades, Knight has been release great albums that have received attention from critics, fellow musicians who cover the songs and, most importantly, music fans everywhere. For the past 2 years, since I heard his latest…


Eagles – Toyota Center – Houston, TX

Written by Dave Clements How many bands get to a point in their career where they can go out on tour and NAME that tour the history of their band? Only one I know of – The Eagles, none better! And I had the pleasure of being part of the sold out crowd at The…


Pat Metheny – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Michael Pittman The new album is called Kin and comprised the bulk of the 2nd half of the show. If you’ve never seen Pat Metheny or even if you have you know he’s a complex musician and artist who is constantly evolving, yet somehow magically manages to maintain the gravity of his guitar…

The Hollisters – Continental Club – Houston, TX

Written by Samuel Barker There was a time back in the late-90s when I lived at the Satellite Lounge. Not literally, but if I was going to a show or going somewhere to drink a beer, it was the Satellite. One of the best times to be there was when The Hollisters were going to…


Gordon Lightfoot – Cullen Performance Hall – Houston, TX

Written by Dave Clements Houston’s weather had turned nice for what seems like the first time in months.  I had my beautiful wife by my side, two tickets, and a photo pass for the Gordon Lightfoot concert at Cullen Performance Hall on the U. of H. campus. What a very nice way to spend Valentine’s Day!…


Rankin Twins – Barnes House Concerts – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti House concerts have been part of our life for going on 7 years or so now. It is cool for Rose and I to have the occasion when an artist is doing their first experience at the house concert deal. This night one of the better ones in Houston area, Barnes…


The Grahams – Riverman’s Daughter

Written by Samuel Barker Feb 08, 2014 at 08:00 AM For years, I held a pretty strong prejudice against the “married couple” bands. Normally, they were gimmicky groups filled with bad duets advertising the fact that they were a married couple. However, in recent years, those feelings have faded as more musicians have gravitated towards…
