Lone Star Rally

The Rally starts tomorrow. The city is already doing No Parking areas, to get the cars off the streets.

The official music schedule is here.

There are some bands with a web presence.
Superfix "Houston's Premier Party Band!"

Six Gun Republic
MySpace page

"40 Mile" That may or may not be the right band. They're at least in Texas, but don't have the Rally show on their listing of upcoming shows.


The Blue Threads


Soulful Tears

Johhny & The Heartbreakers- Link is an Australian band, may or may not be the right one.

Pilots in Play which is also apparently Houston's premier cover band.

A YouTube video for Fire and Wheels

And, the only band I've actually heard before, Fondue Monks. Highly Recommended.

Reason 1001 Why KoL Radio is Better Than Boring FM

Because I'll never hear Jeff Buckley reading a poem by Edgar Allen Poe on FM.

Hmm. Born a few days before me, and now he's dead. Not good.

SteamPunk Tree House

Via GeekDad:

There's a really cool treehouse/art piece that was apparently used at Burning Man this year. There are some pretty cool pics.

PC Magazine's Top 100 Blogs

Via Instapundit.

I agree, their selection of political blogs is entirely nutroots based, and not interesting. You would get the same results if you asked for the 5 liberal blogs with the most traffic.

The rest of the picks though weren't very interesting either. Way too many specific to New York. And most of them looked like the sort of blogs editors of a tech magazine would want to stay in touch with, just to make sure they weren't missing something.

But there were a couple I want to keep looking at:

Secrets [Which I've seen before and is either interesting or creepy]

Neatorama [Which I'll check for interesting stuff to point out to a mailing list I'm on, if nothing else]

Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories [Which is cool beyond fucking belief. How to make a Flying Spaghetti Monster hat and a Dalek Pumpkin]
