The Polyphonic Spree and The O's @ Fitzgerald's

The Polyphonic Spree & The O

The Polyphonic Spree came to Houston last week, and boy were they great. On the final night of the tour, the 16 piece band gave it their all to a sweaty crowd in the upstairs venue at Fitzgerald”s. Openers, The O”s, started the night off right with their brand of bluegrass and folk. They reminded me most of the Avett Brothers, only with a touch more Dallas involved in their sound. I wrote all about the show for Houston Press” Rocks Off blog, so I”m gonna save my words here, but I have an overflow of photos from the night that I figured someone might like to see.

The Walkmen, Milo Greene & White Arrows @ Fitzgerald’s

The Walkmen, Milo Greene & White Arrows @ Fitzgerald's

The fall music season is in full swing, and with a bounty of festivals in our area fast approaching, I can almost smell the patchouli in the air. With the onslaught of festivals come tours, and the amount of bands hitting Houston is certainly swelling from our late summer drought. This last weekend served as somewhat of a kickoff to my favorite time of year when Fitzgerald’s hosted The Walkmen and Milo Greene upstairs and White Arrows down. There were several other great shows going on around town, so I was expecting it to be a bit under attended, but as soon as The Walkmen came on, the building was nearing capacity.

Akron/Family & Hello Chief @ Fitzgerald’s

Akron/Family & Hello Chief @ Fitzgerald's

Akron/Family and local openers Hello Chief hit the upstairs stage at Fitzgerald’s to a smaller than usual crowd, but had no trouble keeping everyone that made it to the show fixated on what they were offering. I hadn’t seen Akron/Family since they hit Walter’s a few years back with Warpaint and local heroes Buxton, so I was excited to see what they had to offer after putting out a few new albums since then. Openers Hello Chief, from just down the road in Beaumont, I’d heard of before, but had never listened to or seen. I walked in a few songs into their set, and was very surprised at what was coming from the stage. A trio of kids, that I’m not sure could buy a drink yet, were pumping out some very experimental tunes that perfectly fit with what Akron/Family has released over the years. They were what Animal Collective should sound like. Akron/Family, while starting out pretty slow, put on one of the most intense performances I’ve ever seen. I loved every minute of their set, which saw them performing both on and off of the stage for a good 90 minutes. Playing both new music which they are now currently recording in El Paso, and adding several more classic cuts from earlier efforts, the trio effortlessly twisted and turned their way through quite an entertaining set of music. From what I heard that night, their new record should be pretty aggressive, and I couldn’t be happier at the thought of that.

I took a bunch of pictures of both bands that night, which you can find after the jump.

Free Press Summer Fest 2012 In Review

5:43 pm by

Free Press Summer Fest

Another year of Houston”s biggest party, Free Press Summer Fest, has come and gone, leaving a trail of hangovers throughout the town. I”m finally starting to shape up from what was one of the best musical weekends of my life. Living much closer to the festival this year than ever before (three blocks away from the gate), we had the opportunity to catch pretty much the full weekend of music from the opening notes of the Sideshow Tramps on Saturday morning until Pretty Lights shut things down with a firework display that matched the intensity of his set on Sunday night.
