Ozieren-HAW-035

Five years ago, inside the ballroom at Warehouse Live, Drake became a thing in Houston. At first, hearing the Canadian rapper mention Houston so much, so often and with so much joy in his voice felt weird. He was an outlier, someone who wasn’t born here clad in a black T-shirt singing the cities praises […]

Last Friday, RiFF RaFF headlined Warehouse Live. Yes, the exact same show where Travi$ Scott birthday caked someone and swung from the rafters of the building and everyone gawked in amazement.

Juicy J (Marco Torres/Houston Press)

Like a doctor making a yearly visit to a college or symposium, Juicy J always seems to make his Warehouse Live visits important. They’re ratchet fun, the sort of events that are tailor made for social media and Instagram. He will readily remind people that his brand of Memphis’ trunk funk from “Tear Da Club […]

After fusses over building permits and stage setups, Lady Gaga made the most of his SXSW Thursday night by doing things only Gaga would think of and consider. She showed up on the Doritos #BoldStage outside of Stubbs BBQ a little after 10 PM tied to a roasting spit like a piece of Texas BBQ […]

I often joke that Jay Z has never, intentionally listened to Yeezus, the album made by his understudy, “little brother” and Chicago’s own golden child in Kanye West. Surely he doesn’t play it inside the Carter house to lull Blue Ivy to sleep and definitely not while Beyoncé’s around for them to juxtapose being hip […]
