Southwest Regional Folk Alliance – Austin, TX – Review

Written by Eddie Ferranti – September 26-29, 2019 It is always great when the calendar flips to September for me. Football is back, major league baseball is heading towards the playoffs, and the anticipation of fading the Texas heat finally comes into focus.  That is all great, but the main thing about late September is…


Wilderado – White Oak Music Hall – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Dave Clements For some time now I have wanted to get a closer look at The White Oak Music Hall(s) and outdoor amphitheater. This venue has existed on the northern perimeter of Downtown Houston for just over three years. Before this past Friday night I just haven’t found the occasion to go.  Somehow…


Aaron Lee Tasjan – McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – Houston, Texas – Review

Written by Jane Ponte I’ve been a fan of Aaron Lee Tasjan’s for several years now, and I honestly did not know what to expect when I found out he was finally coming to Houston. The former lead guitarist of the New York Dolls breezed into Houston on Friday afternoon, and after a free record…


Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors – Heights Theater – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Jane Ponte – 10/11/2019 A long-overdue and delightfully cool breeze blew into Houston yesterday, and I’m convinced that Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors rode directly into town on that most-welcomed change. Their nearly 2-hour performance to a packed house at The Heights Theater last night was nothing short of magical, and indeed a…


STYX -Smart Financial Centre – Sugarland, TX – Review

Written by Kevin Black – October 3, 2019 Smart Financial Centre hits another home run. Everyone loves a good opening act, but when you have a stellar line-up like James “JY” Young, Tommy Shaw, Ricky Phillips and the Classic Rock Drummer of the Year 2019, Todd Sucherman, writing, arranging, recording and performing over four decades…


Roots n Blues n BBQ Festival – Stephens Lake Park, Columbia, MO – Review

Written by Jane Ponte – September 27th –29th, 2019 Ask anyone who knows me well, and they’ll tell you that two of my favorite things to do are to travel and to go see live music. When the option of combining these 2 things presents itself, you can color me gone. And when the place…


The Who – Toyota Center – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Dave Clements September 25, 2019 Who knew that this Wednesday night would become one strange evening of live rock. It was unlike any one that I had ever experienced. I’ll explain shortly. I was so pumped that I was going to have the opportunity to see The Who in Houston’s Toyota Center and not…


Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival – American Airlines Center – Dallas, TX. – Review

Written by Jim Bille Crossroads Guitar Festival – September 20-21, 2019 Just when we might have thought that Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festivals were a thing of the past EC resurrected the event yet again in the city where it all began, Dallas, Texas. Clapton once again assembled some of the world’s greatest guitarists and…


Peter Frampton / Jason Bonham – Woodlands Pavilion – The Woodlands, TX – Review

Written by Dave Clements I have never met anyone named Imelda and not sure I want to after seeing what Tropical Depression Imelda did to our fine city leading up to an evening of Jason Bonham and Peter Frampton at The Woodlands Pavilion. There were moments that I thought it would take a boat to…


KISS – Toyota Center – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Dave Clements If I hadn’t been there to witness it first hand I would not have believed it. How could that many people have been out on a Monday night, a work night, a school night, at Houston’s beautiful Toyota Center?! These thousands of people who came to the Kiss ‘End Of The…
