Linkin Park and Incubus (Honda Civic Tour) 8/28 Houston Review/Photos

August 31, 2012 The Audio Perv 1

By Phil DeSimone

On a typical hot and humid day in Houston, the Honda Civic tour feat MuteMath, Incubus and Linkin Park came rolling through and heated things up a bit more. This shorter than average summer tour had been the talk of the town amongst the locals and critics alike.

MuteMath kicked things off with a short 30 minute set. Despite the heat, the band came out decked in business-casual attire and got the crowd a lil more sweaty. …

August 31, 2012 The Audio Perv 1

The Heavy returned to the Late Show with David Letterman to perform their new single “What Makes A Good Man?” and their classic hit “How You Like Me Now?”. If you remember, over two years ago Letterman fell in love with the band and asked them to perform “How You Like Me Now?” twice (never done before on the show).

Louis CK Performed At The Bell House Last Night

August 28, 2012 The Audio Perv 0


By Matt Arena

It’s rare to find someone who really cares about their fans. Not in a “thanks for coming out (insert any city here), you guys are the best” as they walk off the stage kind of way or the “I love you (insert country here)!” tweet. An actual sense of giving a shit about the people who pay money to buy what your material or to see you perform, whether it’s music, movies, comedy, or any other art …
