"...Recalling the Chronicle’s own Dead Club Crawl, each episode pairs an aural history, provided by a venue representative, with a live performance by the scene's local (albeit questionable) successors, like the Brothers & Sisters’ cosmic country filling the parking lot of what once was the Armadillo World Headquarters as former proprietor Eddie Wilson looks on. While not incredibly detailed, it's a thought-provoking snapshot of this city's "development" and works well as a crash course music tutorial..."
"..."'Yeah,' he continued, 'it's hot as hell in that place in the summer. Besides, I can see the Nightcrawlers and Storm here every week.'..."

"...21) at the Paramount Theatre, had a rapt audience for their brief tutorial that concluded with a stark rendition of Ingram's "Seeing Stars." Grounded in Music, which was founded in the summer of 2007 and has become the signature music program for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area, helps provide instruments and training to kids and hosts 10-week courses on hip-hop, songwriting, and studio production. "Our real mission is not necessarily to crank out the next big thing," says co-founder Joe Stallone, who hopes to expand the program to other cities, "but to provide that initial spark for these underprivileged kids to turn to music." For an interview with Griffin, see austinchronicle.com/earache. Dead Club Crawl..."
"...New Club Crawl, Part 2..."
"...Club Crawl 'Til You Die..."
"...It's free, but raffles – including one for a signed Jimmie Vaughan Fender Strat – fill the coffers. Consider it a preview of Stout's Eastside Kings Fest, a 12th Street club crawl honoring the progenitors of Austin blues, on Sept..."
"...After a brief opening set by newcomer Lucinda Williams, the El Molino men started trying to find the stage. Back then, the lighting at Liberty Lunch was along the lines of glorified flashlights, and the darkness coupled with Morales' ever-present shades (not to mention the gravel-filled ground) had him bumping into walls and having to crawl onto the bandstand like he was mounting an angry bull..."
"...I use the pre-dawn hours to drink coffee, get caught up on cable news, and generally jump-start my nervous system. Two days before Christmas, a God-awful storm was beating Austin, and as I tried getting my brain in focus, I glanced up and saw the Fox News crawl move across the bottom of my TV screen, "Punk Singer Joe Strummer Dead at 50." Surely that couldn't be right; I waited 10 minutes for the headline to cycle back through again, and when it did, I sent off an early-morning e-mail that read, "Joe Strummer Dead," not knowing what else to say..."
"...It's all a system of clubs, you know? I had a season on [the Fox TV show] The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., and that got me into the TV club. So now I really don't have to crawl through glass to get TV work..."
"...Rainey-Deer Holiday Crawl December 16th Meeting Spot: The Bungalow Bar..."
"...The Back Room's new matching $5,000 (each) Intellibeams creep and crawl around the wall and ceilings and over the crowd, like a police helicopter searching for a fleeing fugitive, or perhaps the skylight at a red carpet soiree. It feels a lot like that tonight...."
"...TRAILER BRIDE: Don't take Melissa Swingle's weary warble for apathy. Chapel Hill's Trailer Bride is one of Bloodshot's stranger acts: bits of country, bluegrass, and a creepy crawl through the pine trees to where ghosts reside..."
"...Lead vocalist Groovie Man put more of his heart into it this time, stalking the stage like the lone lost Manson brother and spitting up above-average renditions of All the Hits, making this into a kind of eponymous best-of show since the band doesn't have a new CD to support. As is so often the case in live shows put on by Wax Trax! alumni, half the thrills come from checking out the PVC fashion plates and kick-hungry denizens that crawl out of the woodwork every time TKK rears its head; Tuesday at Ohms transplanted to Monday at the Lunch..."
"...12mid, Maggie Mae's Giselle Webber has a voice as ferocious as it is precious, and on Montreal quartet Hot Springs' debut LP, Volcano (Quire), she lets loose. Less pickled than Grace Slick, Webber runs her intense vibrato hot and cold, and she's not afraid to freak out, crawl around, howl in the mic, and gyrate..."
"...It's about time you recognized and had enough intelligence to do an article on the Blue Noise Band ["Picks to Click: Jazz Out the Door," March 3]. From a musical critique, it was a pretty good article, but you should have crawled into one of the shadowy venues that they played at a long time ago, and realized they're different, but very jazzy and superb and no matter where you see them, and how they just mold into the crowd that is there..."
"...Queer Zombies Pub Crawl We know some of you take the "crawl" part of pub crawls very seriously, so plan ahead. This is a fundraiser for PFLAG, for gosh sake, so behave..."
"...It was spring of 1977, and I stood at the top of the stairs at Friends & Lovers and watched with venom in my throat as Roger, the man of my dreams, was dancing with someone else -- someone much younger than me, and I was only 19. In fact, the queen he was dancing with, Xavier (the name still makes my skin crawl), was 17, just like the dancing queen in the song..."
"...Fellow New York foursome Crystal Stilts' debut, Alight of Night, detunes and distorts behind big 1960s girl-group beats. The night's rounded out by the sugar pop of Cause Co-Motion!, the mellow quirk of Woods, the lo-fi crawl of Air Waves, and the cats and rats of local trio YellowFever, which purrs like a Slumberland band from 1991..."
"...After a few minutes of holding and hugging and weeping and sheer disbelief, my insides begin to crawl out of my skin. Wanting to be alone, I left the club, taking off on foot north on Bowie...."
