The Light of Doom: The Skull
The Skull is set to bring forth sounds of doom from some of the very founders of the whole friggin genre “Doom Metal” at For the Community 14 Festival.  “Doom”, to the uninitiated is a genre of rock, specifically heavy metal music, known for it’s ominous sound which evokes a sense of concern, despair, and impending dread. What makes The Skull interesting is their history, the sounds they create, and the lyrical content the music delivers. What is important to making doom reach people is to speak to things that are worthy of despair, dread, or ruin. To do this you have to care about something.
What Did the Black Angels Bring to Houston?

Psychedelic experimental music is therapeutic. Psychedelic music provides a means by which to alter our perceptions, and altering perceptions, is very close to and may lead to questioning presuppositions. The Black Angels create a sound that draws you in, takes you places you may not expect to go, and couples this with lyrics that question presuppositions about war, relationships, currency and other subjects.

Cl’Che’ Gifted Houston Rapper with a Purpose
I heard  Cl’Che’ live on a Television show. Her performance was strong, intelligent, and creative. When I got home I googled her music and listened to more than a few videos. What I found was some very good stuff. I shared the music with some friends including folks at Red Publication, they suggested I write an article. I was impressed by Cl’Che’ this was a good opportunity to learn more about the musician and share that with the world.

For The Community 14 Free Music and Art Festival

For The Community Festival was born out of a semi-revolutionary multi-cultural conglomeration of activists called the Houston Free Thinkers. Of course, many artists and musicians were in this group. Some great talent emerged and have released their work on the Visionary Noise label. However, Visionary Noise is more than just a record label. If you are a fan of live, independent music, here is your opportunity for an alternative introduction to the fun! Without skipping a beat Visionary Noise is able to host successful multi-genre shows!
