D6: Desperate Times, Desperate Measures

The point of a dog whistle is plausible deniability: If you interpret a politician's message as saying something bigoted, he can always claim he was misunderstood. So, for the purpose of plausible deniability, we can't know for sure what Matt Stillwell hoped to accomplish with his latest flyer. Read More | Comment »

Day of the Dead at the ESB-MACC

Hard to believe that it's almost a year since we lost Austin's patron saint of printmaking, Sam Coronado. He died from complications following a stroke on Nov. 11, 2013, which means this will be the first Dia de los Muertos following his death. It's an ideal opportunity to remember this Austin Arts Hall of Famer, and rest assured, he will be. Read More | Comment »

Late-Night Lovin' on Austin: The Sequel

According to Jon Stewart at the taping of his second episode from Austin this week, 60% of his staff for The Daily Show is ready to move here. That's how much they adore this city. But we hardly needed to be told that since the sentiment was clear throughout the show – and pretty much every minute, on camera and off, all week long. Read More | Comment »

Praying for The Overnighters

If The Overnighters is a modern true-life version of The Grapes of Wrath, Pastor Jay Reinke isn't its Tom Joad. He's more like Jim Casey, Tom's clergyman friend who tries to organize some defense for the poor and oppressed, and pays the consequences. Read More | Comment »

Arctic Monkeys Give Cedar Park Center the F Sharp

Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner caught the crowd at the Cedar Park Center Tuesday unaware, slinking onstage during opening act Mini Mansions and hijacking vocals from drummer (and Queens of the Stone Age bassist) Michael Shuman.
