The sad, depressing story of a city of four million people minus an indie scene from the Houston Press.  An insane incident of police over-reacting in ‘06 to a club show didn’t help but John Nova Lomax’s well-documented research points to more problems: “mediocre bands, terrible radio, second-rate venues, poor public transportation, killer sprawl and a diverse populace of mildly paranoid, cynical souls.”  Not to mention some eye-opening info about how diversity may not always be what it’s cracked up to be.
