Twisted Throttle has carved a unique rock niche in Southeast Texas. After debuting in January of 2018, vocalist Mindy Bell and bandmates Aaron Williams (guitar), Ben Sanders (bass) and Nathan Currie (drums) have generated plenty of regional buzz in a competitive industry.

Live music fans can check them out on Saturday, March 2, at Madison’s on Dowlen at 9 p.m. 

Expect to hear catchy originals like “How You Like Me Now” as well as arena-rock covers from Boston, Kansas, Heart, Guns N’ Roses, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC.

Giddy would be an understatement. I remember buying Cypress Hill’s self-titled debut album in 1991 on cassette tape and playing it to all my classmates in high school.

Songs like “How I Could Just Kill a Man,” “Hand on the Pump/Real Estate,” “The Phunky Feel One” and my personal favorite from the album, “Latin Lingo.” I was the guy in my class who other students would come to and ask for new music, but this time, it was different. I was the first to introduce Cypress Hill to my entire school. Probably a lie, but I told myself I was.

Known for its Cajun flavored menu that features depth and variety as well as classics and standards, Reel Cajun has moved beyond its Port Arthur location and expanded into Lumberton.

Because its current location is so close to a school, Real Cajun Lumberton is BYOB, which allows customers to bring their own beer and wine. However, liquor is prohibited, as are personal coolers, though the Reel Cajun team is happy to provide ice buckets for any diners that need to keep their drinks cold.
