SXSW 2014: Tragedy, punks, and fighting in the streets

Photo: Wilson Lee Photography   …and metal, always metal. But you have to cut a headline somewhere!   The night before I arrived, a 21-year old from Killeen, trying to escape from police chasing him on suspicion of having stolen the car he was in, ran down 23 people on a pedestrian section of Red River Ave., killing two and critically injuring 8 others. There was concern as to what the appropriate response should be, but in the end, the show(s) went on.   After dropp...

SXSW 2013 – Wednesday, Mar. 13 - Metal and Punk collide

All photos Chris Smith/GonzoGeek Media Inc. Straight out of the car from Houston and straight into metal at SXSW, courtesy of the Show No Mercy Day Party hosted by House of Vans at Mohawk. Mohawk is a great place for this kind of event, with a small indoor stage and a micro-amphitheater allowing for two bands to play simultaneously without any sonic bleed. Wet Lungs was first up inside. The three-piece’s songs had the brevity and force typical of grind, but also carried a certain mo...

Jibbies & Loond - Video Special: Pallbearer, Power Trip, Venomous Maximus, Eagle Claw

Fitzgerald’s, right up there with Rudyard’s on the very short list of Houston’s longest-lived cool places to see music, has added a nice new twist to things lately: All-ages shows that are free for 21+ an just $10 for those under. What’s more, the bills often take place on a weekend and include one or more national acts people would actually want to see – Saint Vitus, Electric Six, etc. – and then a diverse line-up of local/regional groups in support; sometime...

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 049 - A New Beginning

Hello friends. Welcome to Episode 049 of The Jibbies & Loond Show. You’ll notice it sounds a little different. Our two intrepid hosts have decided to actually feature full songs for you to hear. It’s a work in progress, but so far we’re thrilled with the results. The first two tracks to tickle your ears come for Hatebreed and Sons of Aeon, both of which have new records outs right now. If we could get J&L to talk a little less, the possibility of doing three or four songs a week exists. But then you couldn’t get up to date on the various permutations of the Anthrax saga, Saxon box sets, and the glory of Power Trip live, all of which are explored within.

As I’m typing, Jibbies sits nervously in the corner, worried that he undersold the quality of the new Hatebreed album…that’s right folks, it’s a grower, and very good indeed. Have a listen and judge for yourself. We hope you like the new format.

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 041 - Baroness, Testament, and Crazy Uncle Dave

As the European festival season winds down, fall releases and US touring move to the fore. Updates on Baroness and Testament’s European road trips precede discussion of Crazy Uncle Dave’s latest rant on US politics from the stage in Singapore and the judge’s ruling in the Kyuss Lives! lawsuit. Loond dissects recent releases from Malice and Lord Fowl and Jibbies explores the greatness and present-day influence of Blue Oyster Cult via their new retrospective box set. Fall releases? How ‘bout Down, Enslaved, the Sword, Neurosis, and Power Trip as just the tip of the iceberg? And tours? In addition to already-announced road work from Gwar, DevilDriver, Cancer Bats, Red Fang, and Black Tusk, J&L pile on with US tours including Converge, Kvelertak, Torche, Valient Thorr, and Tomahawk. Finally respect is given to the rapidly selling-out October European package of Slash and Ginger and info provided on how to give fellow metalhead Ed from Doomantia.com a helping hand.
