Surfer Blood. Vampire Weekend. Imagine Dragons. Bowling for Soup. Slightly Stoopid. I've ignored every single one of these bands for one reason and one reason alone: terrible band names. In this culture, we have so many things competing for our attention at all times that your brain naturally has an ... More >>
From day one, despite achieving mammoth levels of success during the grunge and alternative explosion of the 1990s, Stone Temple Pilots have been damned if they do and damned if they don't. Scott Weiland's throaty growl and bug-like sunglasses? How very Layne Staley of him. The band's riff-heavy sou ... More >>
Some of the attendees were of questionable nature, with a variety of tattoos and T-shirts expressing various viewpoints that are, shall we say, somewhat extreme. No doubt rural Oklahoma, with its various billboards on abortion, meth addiction and Christianity prominently displayed outside of the rea ... More >>

The 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards were handed out on Thursday, March 13, and though it was happening right in Austin I'll forgive you for not noticing. In any case I'm not sure how you can have an awards show at SXSW without handing out a prize for Least Essential Social Media App To Receive Venture Capit ... More >>
Today, at Gexa Energy Pavilion, Mutemath will open for Linkin Park and Incubus in what can only be assumed is a fan-grabbing venture for the band. But for Mute Math fans that don't want to shell out $57 for a lawn ticket, the band will perform a free full band show at Good Records today at 3 p.m. A ... More >>
In the last few months, research for a project has taken me across the state and, more recently, into Mexico. It may be something sentimental in me, or this weird notion that road trips are meant to be soundtracked by where you are and not by a list you cultivated online, but I noticed what was popu ...

Using the Schrodinger equation, in conjunction with a quantum harmonic oscillator to efficiently fuse two non-sentient objects together, we here at DC9 at Night have created a giant-ass list.

Roky Erickson, James Hall & The Futura Bold Friday, July 13, at The Kessler Theater This all-Texas bill makes for one of the best shows coming to the Kessler in the near future. Roky Erickson is a legend with a riveting story and James Hall is one of the greatest frontmen to ever grace a Dall ... More >>
Bands that mash up several genres can produce some amazingly unique music as well as some unadulterated shit. New York's Mindless Self Indulgence is quite capable of doing both within the same song. For nearly 15 years, Jimmy Urine and crew have created what they like to call industrial jungle pussy ... More >>
Linkin Park, Circa Survive and Paper TonguesMarch 2, 2011American Airlines Center Better than: an SMU frat party.Mike MezeulCheck out more shots in Mike's slide show. From across the state and even across state lines, more than 12,000 fans amassed inside the AAC last night to witness the s ... More >>
It's a busy Wednesday evening that features a rescheduled arena show, two great club performances and a local bill that will definitely have the oddest fashion sense out of all of these options...
Wednesday, March 2, at American Airlines Center
Just because the scheduled Linkin Park and Prodigy show at the American Airlines Center has been postponed until Wednesday, March 2, doesn't mean you can't catch another musical act this evening. As a matter of fact, we have a plethora of worthy options for the discerning music fan.
This guy is the Yankees' only hope. In other words, 'tis over.10. And that, my friends, is why I wanted the New York Yankees. Between CC Sabathia and Mariano Rivera, this is a flawed pitching staff. Just ask the Rangers, who in this series have posted 5, 7, 8 and 10 runs in building a comm ... More >>
Saw Blue October Friday night at House of Blues. Good. But not the best I've seen them. That would've been the show back in the summer of 2004 at the Lakewood Theater when lead singer Justin Furstenfeld - bum knee and crutches be damned - was as passionate as any singer I've ever seen. Got m ... More >>
Basia - Because it is, after all, MY list.Last Thursday I saw a band called MuteMath at The Palladium. Very decent, but in the big picture not quite funky enough or not nearly hard enough for my musical lusting. While there I was thinking - ya know, like you do - whether I'd like ... More >>
With such a diverse roster on its bill, Projekt Revolution might be the closest thing out there to the old Lollapalooza days. Just ask Chris Cornell.
No, not that Phil Collins
