Jibbies & Loond hit the town a couple of Sundays back for a great night of heavy rock music. Fitzgerald’s took what was initially booked as two shows on the same day – one tour headlined by Orange Goblin upstairs, another by Scorpion Child down – and decided instead to turn it into a mini-fest, with one ticket letting you go back and forth between the two. With the prog explorations of Lazer/Wulf, the garage cock rock of Wilson, the 70s-style greatness of both Gypsy Hawk and Kadavar, and the melodic thrash of Holy Grail also on hand, it created a metal buffet of truly epic proportions. And instead of telling you about it after the fact our duo took their gear into the field to report from the front lines while their ears still rang.

Houston’s House of Blues played host to this great summer kickoff show. Loond and I went to check it out, and here’s some of what we heard and saw. Clutch did its normal spectacular job of laying down a rockin’, rump-shaking, yet oh-so-heavy groove. They are truly a band apart, creating a whole each and every show which doesn’t only eclipse the sum of its parts but succeeds in transporting the audience to a different time and space. If they’re not already, they will...
What with the locals getting out and touring and the nationals skipping Houston, heavy music in the capitol of Humidland has gotten a little bit weird of late. American Sharks revisited their roots, playing a benefit in H-town before hitting the road. Raven is back together and touring, but without any Texas stops, and Vista Chino is also hitting the road without passing through the state. But a new darkness is about to set upon Austin, something so wicked and horrible I can’t possibly let the NSA see it typed here. They (and you) are going to have to listen. Fortunately, new music on offer from both VoiVod and Darkane keep the metal flowing properly. You can hear tracks from each without us yapping over them at the end.
dUNETX – ‘The Kids’
American Sharks – Live at House of Blues, Houston, May 25, 2013
Megadeth – Live
Voivod – ‘Resistance’
Darkane – ‘The Sinister Supremacy’

Our Summer Jams series continues! With Hunter's picks. I can't promise you'll like them....
It’s summertime already down here in Houston, and I’ve risen to the heat by compiling a Summer 2013 playlist. There’s some new stuff. Some medium-old stuff. And some ancient stuff. Regardless of age, however, each song stands on its own as a great summer-themed (to me) anthem. Even more spectacularly, their arc, played from beginning to end, roughly corresponds to the arc of any number of my 3-month breaks from school back when. And after all, summer really is for the k...
