Astragal & Donna Hayward Drop Killer Split Cassette

If you follow what’s happening inside the indie rock world of Houston music, then you should know that there’s a pretty vibrant world that exists outside of the inner city. It’s always been that way, but the scene that grew bands like Donna Hayward and Astragal, could exist on its own without any help from inside of the loop. On their new split cassette release on Miss Champagne Records, it’s pretty obvious why that’s the case…

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.

Houstonian Tales: John Baldwin

Sometimes I meet someone who could easily wear all of those hats and more, and yet their biggest focus is trying to make everything fun and cool for those who they perform, promote, or service in their respective endeavors. One of those people is musician, promoter, booker, and record shop owner John Baldwin.
