Jealous Creatures hit my musical radar late last summer. My buddy Bob said I needed to check them out during the Houston Press Music Awards showcase. Since they were one of the first bands to play, I started off at their set and could not have found a more perfect band to kick off my afternoon. Energetic, fantastic rock/pop with a beautiful, melodic sound – could it be, in this city that’s a sea of hard rock bands and rap artists that I’d finally found a Houston sound straight up my alley? Even though I could barely see any of them I was charmed with the music, and they’ve quickly become one of my favorite Houston-based bands.
Which is why I asked them to help me kick off my “5 Q’s” blog series. Throughout the year, I’ll be introducing you to some of my favorite Texas-based bands through this quick Q&A style post. I’m a big believer in supporting local music as a fan, and since so many of you reading this are from around the country – and even around the world – I thought this would be a great opportunity to better introduce you to some of the local bands I love. If you like a lot of the bands I babble about, I’m confident you’ll like Jealous Creatures too. Get to know them! (And thank you to the entire band for participating! Precedent set!) [Read more…]
