Aftermath of Bands, Fans & Cans

Using ones area of expertise as a benefit platform is both a generous and convenient effort. Aspiring to help hungry Houstonians during the holiday season, Houston-based band The 71’s used music as the gateway to entice a charitable deed. The Deal—Bring 5 canned goods to the show and get a free CD. […]

Shinedown at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre

I saw Shinedown on Saturday night at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. I typically listen to less hard rock acts but Shinedown qualifies as one of my exceptions. They have the majority of their fans tricked into buying their hardcore façade but they can’t fool me. From his platform, lead singer Brent Smith’s […]

Saturday ACL Brief

12:45PM- The Virgins
Frontman Donald Cumming was wearing green eye shadow and, clearly apparent on the jumbotron, it was dripping down his face in the rain. They did most of their 2008 album with “Rich Girls” of course receiving the greatest of the applause.

1:20PM- Cotton Jones
I had reviewed this Maryland duo’s latest EP on Dryvetyme […]

Houston Press Awards 2009

Rocks Off concert promoters present the Houston Press music award nominees each year with a showcase in downtown Houston. Several bars and clubs participate hosting performers from the ballot. First, I saw Runaway Sun, up for the Best Blues Group award. This summer they released The Bridge, a ten-song LP recorded at […]

Meese, Jack’s Mannequin, and The Fray

At the Woodlands Pavillion for the second time in one weekend, Linds and I went to see The Fray. The line-up included three piano fronted bands, as Meese and Jack’s Mannequin preceded The Fray. Meese’s Frontman, Patrick Meese, once part of a band headlining The Fray, has contently found himself invited to […]

Rod Stewart: Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

Yes, I was late to a friend’s birthday party because I went to a Rod Stewart concert! I had entered a contest through the Houston Chronicle via Twitter, just to see if I got lucky. I won four covered seats at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, TX. […]

Wednesday at Walter’s on Washington

Pegstar Concerts entertained a subdued crowd last night hosting Elvis Perkins in Dearland, Other Lives, and Tody Castillo at Walter’s on Washington.

Castillo’s easy rock tempo contained individual instrumental solos and an occasional breakdown. Those who enjoy the calming sound of an alto male would appreciate his effortless mid to high range inflections. […]

Friday at Fitz

I guess I owe Carmen for the wonderful display of talent compiled last night in her honor. As an acquaintance to one of the contributing bands, Fitzgerald’s hosted a birthday bash for her. Adam Rodgers, a native Houstonian who currently resides in Austin, kicked things off right on schedule, my compliments to the venue. Adam […]
