    Rhinestone Serenader

    Full disclosure: Neil Diamond was my first real concert, in my fourth-grade year, the result of Mom's ardent fandom. Me, Sis, Mom, and Dad at the Houston Summit. What I remember most is this: Someone who couldn't have been paying much attention tried...

    White Punks on Blues

    How good is the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion? So good that four years after the release of the band's screeching, wailing debut album from '92, the Blues Explosion towers over nearly every other punk-blues fusionist shimmying and shrieking on the indi...
