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.

Check out all of my shots from the show after the jump.

Lil Wayne, T.I. & 2 Chainz @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

Lil Wayne, TI & 2 Chainz @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

Sunday night is usually an evening to sit back, relax and get ready for your work week, but this past one was a bit different. Hip-hop heads from around the city made their way up to the Woodlands for a tour dubbed as “America’s Most Wanted,” featuring a slew of rappers, but namely T.I., 2 Chainz and the evenings headliner Lil Wayne. Since the shows at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion are usually a bit more family friendly, I’m not too sure if the folks that run the venue really knew what they were getting into by booking this one, but the night was upon us and away we went.

Read all about the show and check out a bunch of photos after the jump.

The “Under The Sun” tour made its way to Houston on Saturday, featuring Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms and Fastball.

Heart & Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

Heart & Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

Last Night, the Heartbreaker Tour hit the stage at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion featuring 70’s classic rockers Heart along with Jason Bonham, son of famed Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, with his Led Zeppelin Experience.

Going into the show I was a bit leery as aging rock acts are always hit or miss, but I love me some Heart so it was really no question on if I’d be in attendance. Thankfully I made it out, because it was pretty damn incredible.

Check out a bunch more words and photos as well as a link to my photos on Houston Press’ Rocks Off blog after the jump

We’re back!

3:19 pm by

Well, kind of… Breakfast On Tour will never be gone for good.

I know its been a long while since anything has been put on this trusty ol’ blog, but that’s going to change for the better starting right now. I’ve been super busy working my ass off for the Houston Press, shooting and reviewing shows for their Rocks Off blog. I’ve always had a working relationship with them, pretty much since the inception of BOT, but have gone full throttle over the past six months doing anything I can do to further my portfolio.

Unfortunately, the photos and words that I post there contractually can’t be put here other than through linkage, so that’s why BOT has been dormant for the past half a year. From here on out, though, I’m going to post photos that didn’t make the cut for the HP reviews (which there are tons of), and add a few words about how the show’s are with links to my work on Rocks Off. I hope to add more content outside of that, but for now that’s how I’m getting back into the swing of things.

It feels good to be back!

Stay tuned for photos from last night’s Heart and Jason Bonham show later in the day.

Check it out: Swear and Shake, “These White Walls”

5:06 pm by

Yo! It’s been a while, but I wanted to share this here with you guys. Last week I went to a G. Love & Special Sauce show at George’s here in Fayetteville. I was running late and was only able to catch the last song of the opening band, Swear And Shake. It was awesome. I totally regretted not getting there to catch their whole set.

Shout out to G. Love, who usually has really great new bands opening for him on the road. Last year he introduced me to The Belle Brigade.

Well, check them out. These guys and gal are pretty awesome:

Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carey & The Roots: “All I Want For Christmas Is You”

8:12 am by

I’m guilty of being a Christmas music hater. Apart from the sound of Love Actually, I can’t stand any other holiday melodies. Having said that, when a friend of mine shared this video on facebook yesterday I didn’t look at it. But at night, I saw several of my friends had shared it. So I clicked. SWOON. What a fun version of the song! Check it out. Who can hate on Questlove using a wooden clacker with an afro pick or Mark Kelly with a toy xylophone?!
