Joe King Carrasco Says Adios
“Hey, was that Christopher Cross in San Antonio on Labor Day? Man! He said he liked my music!” Joe King Carrasco talks as fast as he plays his signature brand of Tex-Mex that tips its sombrero in every direction.

The Best of Chris Isaak
“I’m writing on a moving bus and it’s hitting every pothole!” Getting email from Chris Isaak is enough to make even a seasoned writer giddy. The native Californian shot to fame in 1990 with his Roy Orbison-like croon on “Wicked Game” snaking through David Lynch’s film Wild at Heart. He performs tonight at the Moody Theater.

Slate’s Slate: Preserve the Past
Lost Austin arrives as a gem of book, and no small part of its charm is author John Slate.

Mary Hattersley Faces Cancer Again
At Enoteca Vespaio on South Congress earlier this week, it’s almost too warm for lattes with Cleve and Mary Hattersley, yet the company’s compelling. As figureheads of local Americana stalwarts Greezy Wheels, life’s been hair-raising, and no more so than recently when Mary, as she puts it, “got cancer a third time.”

RIP Chet Flippo
Let us now praise iconic rock critics like Chet Flippo, whose inner light extinguished in the early hours of this Wednesday June 19. To many, his death is no surprise, for his beloved wife Martha Hume died in December 2012. For others, like me, his passing is bittersweet, part peer and part hero.
