War On Women Take Their Message To Warped Tour

War On Women Take Their Message To Warped Tour

Being misogynist, racist, sexist, and abusive is not allowed in punk anymore, and those who lead the charge are doing so with more vigor and awareness than most who came before them. Baltimore’s War On Women is definitely one of the bands that’s leading that movement. Aside from a fiery live show full of energy, their message of feminism within their co-ed lineup has become a calling card worth listening and paying attention to…

Opinion: Houston Sucks At Show Etiquette

Opinion: Houston Sucks At Show Etiquette

What I see here turns my stomach more than what I see in other cities. Houston, you suck at show etiquette. Period…

Local Love: De’Wayne Jackson

Local Love: De’Wayne Jackson

I’m not sure if you know Spring’s De’Wayne Jackson or not, but he’s been on a tear for the past couple of years, getting mentioned in national publications and getting praise from everyone who’s caught him perform. On his new EP Don’t Be Afraid, he takes R&B and hip hop and melds them together like no one else before…

FlygerWoods & Vonte Heights Team Up On New Banger

With all of these newer rappers on the come up, one of those whose been making all sorts of moves is Houston’s FlygerWoods. One of the strongest mic spitters I’ve seen in awhile, his hard style when he approaches a room is something everyone needs to experience. On his new single with Vonte Heights, “See Us” found exclusively here, he showcases a lyrical style that hits as hard as the beats within the track.…

Performances from the likes of Girlpool, Lee Ranaldo, and Mystikal will all be here alongside locals like Trillblazers, Rose Ette and more to fill in the odd spaces.

Studded Left Drop New Release Ahead of Schedule

Studded Left Drop New Release Ahead of Schedule

True artistry is harder and harder to come by nowadays, though it shouldn’t shock you that Houston’s Studded Left embody the definition of artists. Leaving behind the name of Indian Jewelry to take on a new form and a new sound would seem out of the ordinary for most acts, but it feels like something any ardent fan of what these two do would expect…

At The Drive-In Returns To Form, Sort Of

At The Drive-In Returns To Form, Sort Of

If you were unaware, Omar Rodriguez Lopez is one of the most revered and talented songwriters in music today. He’s released ten albums this year alone, proving he’s also one of the most prolific. One of those ten albums was the new album from At The Drive-In, in*ter*a*li*a. While the other nine of his releases are anywhere from symphonic to blistering, the one album that should have been a mix of both, the new At The Drive-In really wasn’t…

Greg Cote & The Real Life Friends Debut New Single

Greg Cote & The Real Life Friends Debut New Single

There are plenty of new acts worth making it out for around town, though one you might not know a lot about is Houston’s Greg Cote & The Real Life Friends. While the group has been on more and more live shows lately, last year they dropped a pretty solid release with H*T*X. That release showed how strong Cote and The Friends were as a unit, paving the way for another release coming this year…

Hostage Stamps: The Best of The Week

Sets from the likes of At The Drive-In, Metallica, Tripping Daisy, and many more will be here alongside performances from locals like Clay Melton, Finger Guns and more.

You Might Have Missed: Far Out

You Might Have Missed: Far Out

Every now and again, I miss an album. It happens, as I can’t cover everything; but when I miss a great one, it freaks me out. Houston’s Far Out doesn’t play a lot, so maybe that’s it. But their 2015 album Universe is an album I wish I hadn’t missed when it came out. Full of intensity and plenty of hooks, it’s like The Muffs mixed with hints of Thee Oh Sees, and Diarrhea Planet thrown together…

FPSF 2017 Recap: Looking To The Future

FPSF 2017 Recap: Looking To The Future

Getting older isn’t fun in some regards, especially when you’re around those who seem to get younger every year. For many of us who have covered FPSF more than five times, the lineups are usually filled with names we know and some we have no idea about. While this year was filled with plenty of names I wasn’t familiar with; the festival itself was far better than what we experienced last year…
