New York Dolls, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, House of Blues, June 4: "What we got last night at the House of Blues was an hour-long set of sporadic and confounding re-workings of their bedrock material, and a whole helluva lot of middle-of-the-road bar rock from two dimming heroes and some rag-tag session men." Craig Hlavaty

Better than Ezra, House of Blues, June 6: "Waiting outside the venue for the show to begin, there seemed to be a consensus like 'the show is sold out? Better than Ezra'? It's a weird thing to think about, really - a band with only marginal success at its peak can sustain a constant following of cult-like consumers." Brandon K. Hernsberger

Third Eye Blind, House of Blues, June 10: "This didn't seem to be the same band that lit up modern rock radio almost a decade ago. They almost seemed like a band with something to prove - strange, in front of a crowd was treating them like returning heroes." Craig Hlavaty

Susan Cowsill, Discovery Green, June 10: "It was a lazy Houston kind of night, full of peace, love and Beatles." William Michael Smith
