Venomous Maximus making summer tour plans

Life has remained nice and busy in Venomous Maximus land (aka Houston). The band signed with Napalm Records last month, as rave reviews for their debut full-length ‘Beg Upon The Light’ continued to roll in, and is currently putting together plans for a summer tour. A June 18 stop in Little Rock is already confirmed as is a date at Reggie’s in Chicago June 22 with Valient Thorr, Gypsyhawk, and Ramming Speed. In between, the band will play Days Of The Doomed Fest II at the Blue...

Interview: Seb Bismuth, Abrahma vox/guitar

Abrahma’s ‘Through The Dusty Paths of Our Lives’ debut was The Jibbies & Loond Show’s Album of the Year of 2012; a heady blend of ‘70s prog-tinged classic rock and modern stoner. Singer/guitarist/songwriter Sebastian Bismuth was kind enough to get in touch from France shortly before heading out on a European tour with Small Stone Recordings label-mates Wo Fat and update our duo regarding both where the band came from and where it might be going.   J&...

John Digweed at StereoLive in Houston

During the early and mid-90’s the Rave Scene in Houston was at its peak.  I even set my drums aside and procured a mixer and a couple of Pioneer digital decks.  Collectives like the Matrix Crew and the Purrin Lion Crew threw some of the most killer events and parties.  DJ’s from all over the country and the world came through Houston to spin at events large and small.  When the Rave Scene died in the mid 2000’s, the events moved to established clubs.  F...

dUNE TX: Houston's Garage Rock

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...

Goatwhore At Fitz

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. I’ve met and talked to Ben Falgoust (lead vocals) before and he was also hella-cool. Really great guys. It was quite a strange bill of bands last night. Most of the other bands were a cheesy blen...

SXSW 2013 - Video Special, Mar. 15: Heaviness and emo-killers

The third and final day of my abridged trip to SXSW is a marathon [aren’t they all? – Ed.], and I ease in slowly by taking care of things nooner style at Brooklyn Vegan with free Jameson and the best vegan food a meat and cheese loving slob like myself will ever eat, a queso made by Truly outstanding. Come for the flavor, stay cuz your guts won’t feel like someone shit cement into them afterwards. Suitably fortified and sustained my gaze eventually turn...

Guest Writer - Irfan Hydari - SXSW Love & Heaviness

My younger brother wrote this really great piece.  Read and enjoy! Yet another SXSW under our belts, and I always enjoy myself thoroughly despite the post-festival hangover. Not only does the festival provide me the opportunity to see some great music, but it gives me the chance to hang with my brother. Yes indeed, that means experiencing some in-your-face METAL. Growing up with Aamir, I’ve always enjoyed the heavier side of things when it comes to music. I wouldn’t cal...

Jibbies & Loond - Video Special: SXSW 2013 Small Stone Showcase

Art by Brian Mercer One of the highlights each year of Jibbies & Loond’s pilgrimage to SXSW is the Small Stone Showcase. For 2013 label-head Scott Hamilton chose a nice blend of repeat performers (Suplecs, last year’s fill-ins Wo Fat) and fresh blood, including such eastern US acts as, Mello Bravo, Supermachine, Freedom Hawk, and Lord Fowl. Hamilton even took a turn on-stage himself , laying it down on guitar with his own band, Luder. I won’t break down each band except ...
