Emiliana Torrini

The new album, Me and Armini, came out in early September and everyone has been posting “Big Jumps.” Buuuut I’m gonna go with something older. I only caught wind of Emiliana back in 2005 when I was living in Florida and my roommate Christina (a.k.a TBA because she lived in the Tampa Bay […]

Tuesday Night at Warehouse Live

Well, if you’re interested in seeing a band who’s lead singer does not articulate one word, therefore, you cannot understand a single thing he says, I would suggest going to see a group called Dear and the Headlights. They did a ballad towards the end of their set which was disastrous considering the words to […]

House of Blues Concert Reviews

Brace yourself, I have two concert reviews for ya’ on this beautiful Friday. Actually, it’s only 65 degrees in Houston today. Chilly!

On Tuesday night I saw The Ting Tings at the new House of Blues in Houston. First of all, I got in for free! I was waiting in line around 8pm to purchase my […]

“Be The One” by The Ting Tings

Tonight I am going to see The Ting Tings at the Houston House of Blues. Yes, Houston now has a House of Blues. Its’ grand opening was on Friday and unfortunately I had to work that night. This British indie-pop duo has released four singles off their debut, We Started Something, and […]

“Mighty Storm” by The Duhks

I heard this song today on the NPR program “The World Cafe.” I wish I had known about this one for my IKE post. It’s a remix of an old song titled “Wasn’t That A Mighty Storm.” It was about the last major storm directed at Galveston in 1900. The Duhks […]

“The Perfect Boy” by The Cure

Ok, seeing as we’re getting closer to the album release date and I have ignored the other three singles off 4:13 Dream, AND because I have no other ideas for today, I think I’ll give ya’ the fourth single “The Perfect Boy.” In all honesty I really like this song. I’ve always just […]

"Oh My Life" by Beth Rowley

Today I thought I’d go with a little rhythm and blues by the sweet Bristol born diva, Beth Rowley. Little Dreamer is the first full studio album by the English singer-songwriter who is now on tour supporting David Gray. It was released on May, 20 2008. She sings a handfull of cover […]

"The Shock of the Lightning" by Oasis

Just had to post this one cuz the album came out today. This is the first single from Oasis’ seventh studio album, Dig Out Your Soul. Is it just me or is this song similar to “Lyla” off the 2005 Don’t Believe The Truth?

“Right Hand On My Heart” by The Whigs

On Friday night I went to the Meridian to see the Kooks. After checking the website hours before the show I learned that the Kooks cancelled due to illness and that the opening band, The Whigs, were going to play for free as the Headliner. So, I went. I couldn’t turn down […]
