For those too lazy to click, here’s what was written about Houston Calling:
Now in its eighth year of operation, David Cobb’s local music blog Houston Calling is one of the best and most intelligent journals chronicling the music scene in the Bayou City. He can count other Houston rock blogs like Space City Rock and Houston Press‘s own Rocks Off as fans and followers. Cobb covers artists, mostly local but never shying away from the national biggies, in a tone that’s hard to find these days. He manages to get strong and in-depth interviews from musicians in town that get to the heart of their craft, and his subjects have grown to understand that his process isn’t just to promote a show for a hungry band, but also to bring readers into their musical minds. His show previews and album reviews don’t hinge on gimmicks, just his own musical knowledge, which he never feels the need to beat a site visitor over the head with.
That is really nice and totally unexpected. A special thanks to all the readers, musicians, and fellow music writers.
