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…

Ruiners Break The Mold With New Album

Ruiners Break The Mold With New Album

In the past twenty years, there has never been a time that I saw a new band that reminded me of so many others I admired, attempted to emulate, or found inspiration in like when I first saw Houston’s Ruiners. Their first show was mind blowing if not for any other reason than for their sheer force and energy. The time I saw them play in the dark at a house party, and their bassist almost knocked out a passerby on accident with his fevered performance…

Get To Know Rose Ette Ahead of FPSF

Standing out however, has never really been a problem for Houston’s Rose Ette. Forming a bit over three years ago, the band that felt like a side project in the beginning has gained more than enough steam since this time last year. Even after lineup changes, and having to bow out of a festival due to remarks made by the festival’s owner, Rose Ette has kind of done things their own way while expanding on what feels like a growing fan base with each and every show that they play.…

Well, it’s that time of year again, when downtown becomes the backdrop for FPSF. While the likes of Lorde, Solange, and more will all be in town for the festival, that doesn’t mean that it’s the only game in town. Performances from JMSN, Dressy Bessy, and Deicide will all be here as well while locals like Cool Moon, The Cops and ore fill in the gaps. Houston, here’s where your paycheck should go this week…

Get To Know Kay Weathers Ahead of FPSF

In music today there are multiple versions of genres, that the phrase sub-genre doesn’t really apply. With electro pop, or shoegaze, or even singer songwriter genres, you can think of artists almost immediately. With an artist like Kay Weathers, there’s pretty no way to put your finger on what sound she could be categorized with…

Football, etc. Grows Their Sound On “Corner”

Football, etc. Grows Their Sound On “Corner”

The truth is that any fan of a band should want the group to grow and mature as artists. On their new full length, Houston’s Football, etc. do just that, they grow and shed the bulk of their emocore leanings. In fact, Corner finds the band heading in a more indie rock direction that results in a sound that’s more focused and open to more tastes than that of the emo underground…
