Journey w/ Steve Miller and Tower Of Power – Woodlands Pavilion – Spring, TX

Written by Dave Clements I certainly didn’t try to interview people as they left The Woodlands Pavilion this Friday night. I’m willing to bet, though, that if I had I wouldn’t have found these two things to be true. One, it would have taken a very long time as it was a sold out house,…


Reading a Blonde: Johnette Napolitano’s Rough Mix

Written by Samuel Barker May 21, 2014 at 12:00 PM Sometimes you’re late to the party. You arrive, the scene has broken up, only the crappy beer is left and most of the revelers have headed home. Usually, it is a bummer to roll up on, but sometimes, amongst the folks hanging until the bitter…


Paul Thorn – Dosey Doe – Spring, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti “Ginormous” is not really a word, but it describes a few things that happened to Rose and myself recently in a good way.

Lady Antebellum, Billy Currington & David Nail – Woodlands Pavilion – Spring, TX

Written by Dave Clements I’m sure glad Lady Antebellum didn’t roll through The Woodlands the night before their scheduled show. Mother Nature was doing her thing as a strong line of thunderstorms rolled through. However, as fate would have it the nearly sold out crowd that came out this Mother’s Day Eve to see the…
