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...

Jibbies & Loond Video Special: Clutch, The Sword, Dixie Witch, and American Sharks

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...

Melvins: 30th Anniversary Tour, Covers Album, Maryland Deathfest

The Melvins celebrate their 30th anniversary with an extensive North American tour, kicking off July 12 in Phoenix, Ariz. “Has it really only been 30 years?” asked singer/guitar player Buzz Osborne. “Dang! Thanks to everyone who’s been there for us! It’s been an exciting trip and I probably should have listened and learned more. I apologize for anything I’ve ever done wrong and for anything I’m going to do wrong… Ha!” ‘Everybody Love...

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...

Hot Lunch 's/t' debut out through Tee Pee, Mar. 12

Heavy, San Francisco punk 'n' roll band Hot Lunch will release its self-titled debut LP Hot Lunch through Tee Pee Records next Tuesday, March 12. Recorded at Louder Studios in Grass Valley, Calif., with producer Tim Green (Jawbreaker, Christian Mistress, Earthless) other reviewers have rightly compared the band’s sound to Blue Cheer and the MC5.  But there’s other stuff at work as well. ‘Handy Denny’ blends surf rock into the mix, while ‘Killer Smile’ br...

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...

Friday LinkFrogging - 2/8/13

Photograph by Michael Edwards/MeInMyPlace.com I’m back! It’s Friday; time to start goofing off. And guess what? The boss has gone and left me the keys to the shop so I get to run this show however I like. I know we normally look to the near future in finding our Cheesecake, building on a tie-in to a movie about to come out or a TV show about to get cancelled or whatever else might guide us in that direction. But I’m in charge now, and it’s time to atone; time to look b...

Saint Vitus is heading out on the road in support of ‘Lillie F-65,’ the band’s first album in 17 years. The tour is Saint Vitus’ first full US headlining stint since 1993 and guitarist Dave Chandler was kind enough to spend a few minutes talking to Jibbies about ‘Lille…’, why this is all finally happening now, a variety of upcoming live recordings from the band, the joys of the road, and the even greater joys of local noise ordinances….And all while prepping for the arrival of Hurricane Isaac.
The tour begins this Friday, Sept. 14, in Little Rock, Ark., heading to the East Coast the West Coast and then swinging back to the middle, wrapping up Oct. 19 in San Antonio. Weedeater and Sourvein support, making this a can’t-miss fall package.
