Austin usually gets all the credit, however htown continues to attract a bevy of brilliant acts eg., cults 11/13/17, ghostland observatory 12/30/17, brmc 01/20/18, sleigh bells 02/07/2018, david byrne at WOMH last night. To see him in particular was really sentimental, considering talking heads was among the first few bands I heard and fell in love with as a kid. David Byrne doesn’t seem to lose an ounce of creativity or relevance as the years go by; a remarkable talent to say the least.

pixies @ white oak

We took in the Pixies on April 30 at the bucolic outdoor venue at White Oak, right after an enjoyable hour or so at raven tower next door. The seating on the green hill with resplendent view of the stage and city skyline was perfect, as was the generous set from the Pixies. They powered through all the classics, including my favorite Velouria, throwing in a few new tracks that were just as good as anything they’ve ever done. The Houston weather over-delivered, providing a dry, temperate evening that overall made for one of our most memorable outings. pixies

the kills

As usual I’m a little slow to the punch, however we took in the kills a couple of months ago at the White Oak Music Hall. Was an absolutely stellar show from the consummate musicians and performers. With almost unbearable levels of talent and chemistry, one of the best shows we’ve seen, in Houston or anywhere else.
