SXSW is but a distant Los Alamos-like memory at this point, its half-life nowhere near expired, but enough decay having occurred that the feet feel normal and the mind can begin to wander to other musical experiences, both future and past. May is going to be an unbelievably full month of rock in greater Houston, with no less than the Dwarves, the Queers, Suicidal Tendencies, Sick Of It All, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Kvelertak, Cancer Bats, Black Tusk, Torche, King’s X, Clutch, and The...
While wandering around late Wednesday night during SXSW 2013 in Austin, Tex., I ran into these two young ladies offering free foot washing. I had been waiting for a while outside Buffalo Billiards, looking for a way to crash the badges/wristbands-only Ash showcase when they appeared, asking each and every passerby – regardless of size, geometry, color, gender, or generally observable hygiene level – if they wanted their feet washed for free.

#LinkFrogging...is half the battle.
Louisiana’s sons of Blackened Death Groove – Goatwhore, tore through a blistering 1 hour set at Fitzgerald’s last night. My girlfriend and I got to meet and chat with Mr. Sammy Duet (guitar/vocals) at the bar before he hit the stage. Sammy was super nice, humble, and soft spoken.

Chapel Hill, NC’s, mighty VALIENT THORR releases its sixth studio album (and first in 3 years) Our Own Masters June 18 via Volcom Entertainment. The band recorded at Ronnie Jone Sound Studios in Athens, Ga., with Kyle Spence (Harvey Milk) producing, engineering, and mixing.
Valient Thorr, as epitomized by front man Valient Himself, is the high point in the crossroads of party and thought. You cannot party harder while at the same time stretching your brain pan. If yo...

With the Porsche 250 at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Ala., now less than 2 weeks away it seemed a good time to share some the sights and sounds of Grand-Am’s first visit to Circuit of the Americas earlier this month. First up is a clip from Rolex Series practice on Friday, Mar. 1
Here are the cars returning to the paddock post-practice
Next out are the Continental Tire Challenge participants, again obs...
Kimi Raikkonen (Lotus) won the season’s opening round in Australia, and starts seventh on the grid in Malaysia today for Race 2. Defending 3-time Formula 1 champion Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) won his second straight pole, followed by the Ferraris of Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso. In the run up the race both rain and rapid tire degradation featured prominently in conversation.
Most teams took to the track on intermediate tires, with rain on parts of the course and sunshine on o...
