If the Astros being in the World Series is any sign that the city of Houston is glo-ing up right now then Maxo Kream and his Brandon Banks Tour making its way around the US is the icing on the cake. H-Town has forever been layered with certified artist dating back to the godfather’s DJ Screw, Big Moe, and Devin The Dude. Now it’s Maxo’s time to tell his story about life in Clutch City.

ZZ top is one of the world’s most iconic rock bands. With their Texas-style goatees, sunglasses, hats, and black attire, the 2004 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees are instantly recognizable. But they’re also iconic in the sense that this is a truly great band. They may call themselves “Beer Drinkers and Hellraisers,” but, beneath the image, this a tight group of incredibly talented musicians.
And ZZ Top’s appearance on their 50th Anniversary Tour at MGM National Harbor recently showcased that, after all these years, they’re still the best at the dirty Texas blues-rock.

As Lucinda Williams began to strum the opening rhythm chords to “Right in Time” on her acoustic guitar recently, she realized that she wasn’t wearing her headset at the Strathmore Music Center. She stopped to gear up and, in her Louisiana drawl, said to the audience, “Well, I guess the ice is broken now.”
