I arrived to White Oak Music Hall at 7:00PM, right as doors opened. North Street was packed with parked cars, and a line of concertgoers ran all the way down to the last street parking spot, about a block and a half from the venue. And again, this was before the first opener even went […]

If you haven’t heard of Amanda Pascali, I hate to break it to you, but you’re seriously missing out. Her immigrant-American-folk duo (consisting of herself and Addison Freeman) is a phenomenal partnership and the very definition of quality local music. I had the privilege of interviewing Amanda and Addison at our studio for Coog Radio’s […]

Wednesday night, White Oak Music Hall was graced by 100 gecs — either one of the worst or best bands of our time, depending on who you ask. The line outside the venue before the show started served as testament to how large the band’s fanbase has grown recently. After waiting for doors to open, […]

Alex G stopped by Houston this past Tuesday as part of his most recent tour. He has spent the last decade not only creating inventive music, but also cultivating a unique fanbase and culture surrounding his music. Never taking himself too seriously, his fans are seemingly all as unserious and joking as he is. As […]

Electronic Pop band Chvrches is finally setting out on their North American tour for their fourth album, Screen Violence, and Houston had the honor of being the first stop of the tour. No one knew the setlist, stage set-up, or the band’s wardrobe, but everyone knew it was going to follow the dark tones of […]

It’s impossible to know how many musicians have slipped through the cracks of the music industry over the years. With the amount of music released every week either independently or with a label backing — not to mention all the music that already exists — it can be easy to wonder just how much great […]

On October 14, singer-songwriter SZA announced a set of shows that will happen throughout November. She described the shows as “not being a tour,” but rather “intimate performances” she would play in a few cities. One of her stops was in Houston at Warehouse Live and I immediately got tickets, which was such a good […]

Japanese Breakfast made a tour stop at the beloved White Oak Music Hall in Houston, along with openers SASAMI. The doors opened at 8, and everyone in line was ready to kick off the Halloween weekend with the band. All you can see is unique costumes, from a juice box to an Astronaut that represented […]

It was big news when three local bands — BLURRED IN10TIONS, Everglaze and Rōzy — were announced to open for Trapt. The show was at Rise Rooftop, a venue known for its electronic dance parties and EDM artists, so it was a bit unusual for a rock concert to be held here, especially on Halloween […]

The band formed in 2012 and consists of lead vocalist Clemens Rehbein, bassist/percussionist Philipp Dausch, and guitarist Antonio Greger.

Ambient music is entirely based around creating a meditative atmosphere so that the listener’s mind can wander freely and enjoy a hypothetical musical landscape. I often get lost in here, but in a good sense, just to explore. One of the great musical architects of the past couple of decades that is able to create […]

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. Headlined of course by the festival’s founder and curator Travis Scott, this year marks the event’s first ever multi-day event. While no set times or schedule have been announced, […]

PinkPantheress is the UK-based music phenomenon, with a prominent (but mysterious) online presence and an iron grip on the indie electronic scene. If you haven’t heard of PinkPantheress yet, chances are you’re not hugely involved with social media. Her music has heavily saturated the TikTok-Instagram-Twitter digital sphere, and her fan base has been growing exponentially […]

Beach Fossils and Wild Nothing set off on a co-headlining “Out in the Way” tour across North America in the beginning of October. They played all the major Texas cities, and ended their Texas run in Houston’s very own Satellite Bar. Doors opened at 7, and everyone in line couldn’t wait to get a couple […]

After many delays and frenzied anticipation, renowned musician Björk finally took to the stage in her motherland of Reykjavík, Iceland, in a glorious return to performing as part of the “Björk Orkestral” shows. Each of the four shows, originally slated for June 2020, were set to be performed with varying members of the Iceland Symphony […]

GTS Presents Rocktoberfest kicked off hard and fast with Houston alt-rock Trio Sub Penguin. The power trio kicked off the show at 4:00PM with the high-voltage energy you would expect from a band covering tunes from Nirvana. Sub Penguin ended their thirty-minute set with a bang (literally) when singer and guitarist Griffin Perkins smashed his […]

Fall is right around the corner and we’re ready for it! Here are five albums to listen to for any occasion — whether it’s driving somewhere, hanging out with friends, or simply just staying home. Teens Of Denial by Car Seat Headrest This album is the perfect example of a good coming-of-age/dark academia indie rock […]

There is a high chance that you’ve heard a Chvrches song somewhere — either in a video game, your local indie radio station, or a music festival.  Chvrches (pronounced CHUR-CHES) is Glasgow’s very own synth-pop and electronic trio that consists of members Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook and Martin Doherty. The band formed in 2011, and […]

You might have seen or heard the slogan “Ici c’est Paris “ somewhere on TV. Well, the famous slogan simply means “This is Paris,“ which derives from the famous French Football club Paris St. Germain. Today’s article, however, will not be discussing French Football but rather French music, specifically: hip hop. In the American world, […]
