Gloves Redefines Garage Rock
There’s an indescribable strangeness to Austin’s “anti-garage” outfit Gloves. It’s not the revolting, standing-at-a-distance-and-point sort of peculiarity.

2015 Austin City Limits Music Festival Lineup
ACL Fest stole its own thunder when the official website inexplicably posted, then deleted, the 2015 lineup on Sunday night, two days before its scheduled announcement.

iHeartRadio Country Festival Review

Beef Sumo Needs Your Help!
“The stop-motion version of Frank Was a Monster Who Wanted to Dance cackles and prances with a Tim Burton-esque dark glee. As its narrator dulcets his best Boris Karloff, this two-and-a-half minute ‘work in progress’ roars to life with its star Batmobiling it down to the danceteria on a twangy crest of Shadowy Men From a Shadowy Planet surftones.”

The warmth, the soul, the voice, the smile, the presence that is Kalu James and his Thursday night residency at the Continental Club Gallery is fast becoming an Austin highlight.
