    36 New Year's Resolutions for an Awful Music Journalist

    Will music journalism always suck? Probably. MTV will always feature at least three Justin Bieber articles on its news page, and NME will continue their 1:4 ratio of articles about members of Oasis. And of course, people like me will still write articles about botching interviews and how cool nu-met ... More >>

    A Backstage Jam Session with Jane's Addiction

    In some ways, getting backstage at Gexa Energy Pavilion is a letdown. Semi-trucks that carry the bands' stage lighting and equipment hummed a familiar chorus, and several tour buses formed a barricade that left an opened area in the center where a small group of people conversed and smoked cigarette ...

    Jane's Addiction, The Duke Spirit - McFarlin Auditorium - 5/10/12

    Jane's Addiction, The Duke Spirit McFarlin Auditorium Thursday, May 10 Last night's show was definitely a situation where the venue didn't seem right for the band and its audience. Jane's Addiction put on a great 85-minute performance, but McFarlin Auditorium is not a good venue for a rock show, an ... More >>

    Austin City Limit Day One: Kurt Vile's Small Reception Makes for a Brilliant Performance

    Kurt Vile‚ÄčThe first day of Austin City Limits Music Festival was a surprise to say the least. Having never been to one of these outdoor music festivals, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had a hunch that getting close the stage at any act I wanted to see would be tough. For the most part, I was ... More >>

    No, Turns Out Dave Navarro Was Not In Town To Play The Open Mic Circuit This Weekend...

    Inkmaster judges Chris Nunez, Dave Navarro and familiar face Oliver Peck‚ÄčLots of Dave Navarro-related excitement in the local Twittersphere this weekend, as the Jane's Addiction guitarist and band mercenary (Red Hot Chili Peppers, most notably) was apparently bouncing all around town, hitting Bil ...

    She's Gone

    Danny Moloshok/Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 Dallas' Zayra Alvarez is outta contention to join Supernova. We'd offer her our sympathies, if only we could figure out how that's supposed to be a bad thing. Those of you watching Rock Star: Supernova last night know that Zayra Watch 2006 has come to an end. ... More >>

    Thank you, Dave Navarro, Thank You

    Danny Moloshok/Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 If we wanted our rock stars to be boring, Patrice, we'd listen to Radiohead. Last night's Rock Star: Supernova was a lesson in feisty dialogue with co-host Dave Navarro. The guy was definitely showing some post-break-up angst when he exchanged his usual stic ... More >>

    That's the Ticket

    Sweet Greggo: This is the man with whom I will be spending five hours this afternoon on The Ticket. I could not be more excited. Seriously. Today might prove a lighter-than-usual day on Unfair Park--gotta prep for my afternoon gig, dig? From 3 to 7 p.m. today, I'll be riding shotgun with Greg Willia ... More >>

    Rock Star Goes Opry

    Danny Moloshok / Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 The woman in me says this is one bad dress Zayra Alvarez is wearing. So, last week on no one's favorite show, Rock Star: Supernova, Zayra Alvarez landed in the bottom three after an atrocious rendition of The Kinks' "You Really Got Me"--and rightfully so, ba ...
