Houston based band Luxurata has a CD release concert this coming week. I first heard Luxurata at an event a few weeks back and I really liked their music. I also heard some of the band members interviewed on the radio and I liked what I heard. This is a good band and I hope they do well. Follow them on twitter for updates.

I’m becoming more interested in the music marketing game. If you’ve seen some great music marketing or want to offer your two cents, email me Steve @ this domain and let me know.

I like matchbooks. On occasion, I collect them. Matchbooks are a small, usually inexpensive way to take a stroll through advertising history. I enjoy looking at matchbooks and trying to figure out what the designer was thinking and what the creator was going for.

Today’s matchbooks (as you can see) are from IMCO Services, A Division of Halliburton Company based in Houston.

In case you’re curious, on the inside of the matchbook, the tips of the matches cover a few words, it reads: Halliburton Basic Research.
