Top Notch: The Best of The Week

Top Notch: The Best of The Week

I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that I know at least twenty people who are 100% amped for the Manchester Orchestra show at House of Blues on Monday, the 21st. Hot on the heels of their very recent release ”Cope,” the band is rocking their way into town. This can only be matched by seasoned opener Kevin Devine and The Goddamn Band. Devine released two amazing records last year, and his show at Fitzgerald’s proved that he brings his “A” game when he plays.…

Two hometown heroes gear up for a massive tour with the Bun B Birthday Celebration and Trillest Tour kick off party at Warehouse Live. The ballroom should be packed with anyone who’s ever gotten down to one of Bun’s songs. These guys, and the entire hip hop community make you proud to be a Houstonian. Even if you just wanted to sing Happy Birthday to one Houston’s best ambassadors, the show also has up and comer Kirko Bangz. Now on Warner Bros records, Bangz is seriously one of the best rappers you’ll see in a city full of rappers.…

The Space Between All of The Notes: Superchunk Returns To Houston Stronger Than Ever

I think some people might have a grand plan, but we didn’t. Doing what we were doing, putting out 7 inches and cassettes for ourselves and our friend’s bands; we didn’t see this far ahead.…

Braving The Cold  This Week’s Goings On in Houston

Braving The Cold This Week’s Goings On in Houston

This will possibly be the only EDM show I’ll suggest all year, so I promise it’ll be worth braving the cold for. With Chicago’s Vic Mensa of the former hip hop group Kids These Days, and the sick DJ work by NYC’s Samo Sound Boy; this is a not to be missed show for any EDM fan in Houston. …
