Wherein Juke Boy Bonner (March 22, 1932 – June 29, 1978) warns Houstonians of the dangers of the streets, and advises against a visit to Ben Taub General Hospital. When listening, please keep in mind that he’s playing the guitar, harmonica and drums at the same time. Weldon H. Philip Bonner was a one-man show.       […]

Kidd the Great was born and raised in Houston’s West End, an area that many people errantly consider The Heights these days, along the Washington Avenue corridor. As any Houston area resident can tell you, Washington Avenue was straight ghetto as recent as ten years ago, before gentrification took a foothold and created the Washington […]

On August 31, 2012 By

In preparation, […]

G&T For Mayhem

On February 17, 2012 By

In this dark world of corrupt Yellow Cab drivers, tow truck vultures, and politicians with deep pockets and dark secrets, a swarm of evil has infected our landscape. Auto-tune technology has destroyed our airwaves. People are afraid to visit a bar or restaurant without first looking it up on Yelp.  Women are wearing Uggs. Although the future […]

Every Houstonian worth their salt is a fan of Lighnin’ Hopkins, the Texas blues musician who made his career in Houston’s Third Ward in the late 40′s.
