Music producer Trakksounds called for a boycott of Fitzgerald’s, one of Houston’s oldest live music venues, Tuesday.

Coming in as featured “artist du jour”, presents the spotlight on Soul Creatures, a local six-piece band, bringing on the funk to Houston’s night life vibes.

Fitzgerald’s, the iconic Houston venue, reopened this Saturday with an iconic Houston performer; Bun B. I arrived at 8 p.m., much earlier than any normal concert goer, so my friend and I took to counting the amount of Houston gear people were sporting as a way to pass the time. At the beginning of the night, […]

Last night, Neon Indian came through Houston and people were lined up and ready to move. Early in the set, he said it had been a few years since he’d been in Houston and he was happy and gracious for everyone who came to see him.

Death Grips made their way down to Houston for their tour supporting their latest album The Powers that B. If you hadn’t heard, the show sold out in just a couple of days. Death Grips went through a time last year where they didn’t show up to their scheduled gigs; they weren’t even in the […]

Toro Y Moi fans trickled into Fitzgerald’s Monday evening as doors opened, letting in people waiting to seize front row spots for a sold out show in Houston. In recent years, Toro Y Moi’s popularity has risen to new heights adding to the wave of new age music that can easily morph into many genres […]

Bad Suns finally returned to Houston on their latest headlining tour after having to cancel their show at Fitzgerald’s back in February due to health issues. Warming up the crowd was Orange County based foursome, Kiev. The saying goes; “don’t judge a book by its cover,” but in this case it was more along the […]

The Ting Tings brought their Super Critical Tour to Houston on April 21st, just three years and a day after their last Houston show (fun fact!) in support of their latest album Super Critical. For anyone who doesn’t know The Ting Tings, were you even alive during 2008? Where were you the year when “That’s Not My Name” became […]

Southern California will be missing a gem for a little while because Night Riots are on tour with the Mowgli’s! This group has been performing together for several years, traveling the country sharing their talent. Consisting of five musicians that met in a tiny town on the west coast, Night Riots’ rich pop sound is […]

On Friday the 10th of April, tUnE-yArDs brought their Nikki Nack tour to Houston for a full-length show after their short appearance at last year’s Free Press Summer Festival. With this being the penultimate tour date (San Antonio’s Maverick Festival being the last) and the last U.S. club show (for a while), Houston was in for a […]

In the modern age, women still have trouble being respected and equalized in various professions and cultural importance across the board. However, I feel in music women are the front runners and ground-breakers leading the way for the zeitgeist and trends of each decade. This is even more potent when they stand together and use […]

Smallpools has announced their headlining tour in support of their new album Lovetap! due out March 24th, and who gets the honor of being the first date? HOUSTON!! Supporting the tour will be Grizfolk, Hunter Hunted and Vinyl Theatre! Smallpools will be playing at Fitzgerald’s on April 14th and they will be offering a limited […]

First, I would like to thank my father for not restricting the music I chose to listen to as a teenager. I came of age in the 90’s during a highly confusing time for music and far too often I wasn’t sure what I actually liked and what was just being shoved in my face […]

What’s poppin’ inter-webs? Guess who was in our humble town of Houston, Texas last week? None other than the Chef himself, and I’m gonna tell you about the show. However, let’s start with some history first: If you don’t know, Raekwon, a.k.a. Corey Woods, a.k.a. the Chef, came on the hip-hop scene in the early […]

We’re giving away three pairs of tickets to see Raekwon at Fitzgerald’s next Thursday at 8pm!  Here’s how you enter: Leave a comment on this post.  We’ll randomly select one commenter at 6pm tonight!

Though I don’t necessarily have a favorite band per say, I typically go through phases where I listen to a few bands nonstop for a period of time, and in the past six months, I’ve had Daughter on repeat. Check out the buzzsession they did for The Wild Honey Pie a while ago, and for […]

She is a shepherd and his wife in labor. She is a young man in America. A tailor because he liked her clothes and a poet because he vowed to forget her. These fine stories permeate through the sweetness about her. It is the eternal tale, sung by Anaïs Mitchell, the queen of modern folk music (a […]

Hot off the release of their follow-up to 2010’s The Waves, New Zealand born San Francisco based sky-gaze (yup, we’re going there) impresario Tamaryn will be gracing the Fitzgerald’s stage with songs from her new release Tender New Signs, which has more going for it than most albums released under any “INSERT HERE-gaze” genre. Tamaryn’s […]

Glass The Sky is a band with a large pallet. The band’s sound delves in atmospheric soundscapes formed by sonically adventurous dual guitars and lush key work, yet is grounded with a more progressive rhythm section. It’d be easy to categorize the sound as “post-rock” if not for the band’s clever use of clarinet, vocal […]
