Blast beats, guitar licks, and bass riffs bellowed throughout 713 Music Hall on Friday as Gojira and Mastodon brought the Mega-Monsters Tour to Houston. The show kicked off at 7PM with New Jersey deathcore band, Lorna Shore, who played a short but energetic set to a packed house, despite the fact that none of the […]

“If you don’t like the Blues, you’re in the wrong place,” the legendary blues guitarist told the crowd. On March 5th, 2023, Buddy Guy brought his Damn Right Farewell tour to Houston’s 713 Music Hall.

Ever been caught in a mosh or swept into the pit? Have you ever left a show sweaty and sore from the frenzy, beaming ear to ear?

What’s the most unusual artist pairing you’ve ever seen on a concert bill? Metal and Indie? Pop and Funk? How about a Grammy Award-winning Blues guitarist and a legendary Rap artist, coming together on one stage for Red Bull’s second Houston SoundClash event? On November 10th, Paul Wall and Gary Clark Jr. faced off at […]

It seems to be the year for hair metal, with nearly every major name in the genre releasing new music or embarking on tour, and for German rockers Scorpions, it is no different. Originally slated to tour with another 80’s hard rock mainstay, Whitesnake, who cancelled all of their planned tour dates due to health […]

Joji brought the Smithereens Tour to the 713 Music Hall this past Wednesday with special guests Rei Brown and SavageRealm.

“Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Axwell, this is Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello. And Houston, we do not have a problem, because we are the Swedish House Mafia.” At those last three words, the Toyota Center erupted in cheers as the legendary EDM trio launched into “Greyhound.” With the now-iconic halo hanging above the […]

The aptly named Freaks on Parade Tour was not one to be missed. With a four-act lineup featuring Powerman 5000, Static-X, Mudvayne, and Rob Zombie, the monthlong Summer tour came to a close last weekend at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, TX.

Float Fest returned to Texas this summer – this time in Gonzales, Texas. Campsites and festival grounds were full of festival goers, Coca-Cola branded stages, and music for everyone to enjoy. To start the day off, electronic group Oats & Honey opened the Coke Studio Stage at promptly 2pm. From there on, we heard smaller […]

Outside of the bigger names like Marshmello and DeadMau5, this year’s Float Fest lineup includes multiple upcoming acts that everyone needs to keep on their radar. It’s great when festivals give rising artists a platform, and we couldn’t be more excited to see what these have in store. Check out our list of some of […]

British singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone, while she looks forward to a performance at Coachella and her upcoming tour with Olivia Rodrigo, performed at House of Blues this past week.

The house was packed from the onset. Filled to the brim, the energy in House of Blues was chill but excited as the first of three acts took the stage. Hailing from Detroit, MI, Boldy James captivated the crowd in a way seldom seen from an opening act. Rapping through a full 45 minute set, […]

Ah, Australia. The Land Down Under. That place you think of when discussing varieties of deadly animals. Not necessarily, however, among the first countries that comes to mind when you think of rock music. But perhaps it should be. You may not recall, but the great country-that’s-also-a-continent has had some big names in the industry […]

Oh, Spotify. The go-to platform for music streaming that everyone loves to hate, but no one seems to do anything about. “Pay artists more!” we cry. “Improve your audio quality!” we exclaim. The brand remains silent – but what could possibly force the streaming giant to bend? Answer: Joe Rogan. For those blissfully unaware of […]

It seems that everyone has a record player these days. I think I personally know more people with record players than Nintendo Switches at this point, though I’m not sure if that says more about the state of the music industry or the people I choose to spend time with. In any case, records have […]

With less than two weeks to go before the gates open, Astroworld has revealed the lineup for their third annual (excluding 2020 for obvious reasons) festival.

As in years past, the festival lineup hasn’t been revealed yet, so in the meantime […]
