Honk!TX Brief
Chris McMillan, bandleader of Dead Music Capital Band and an organizer of Honk!TX, answered an email about this weekend’s fifth annual brass band blowout for some color accompanying the schedule in today’s print issue. Since band times took up nearly all the space in the paper and none online, our exchange runs in full herein.

TV on the Radio Squalls Austin City Limits
TV on the Radio electrifying Austin City Limits Monday night brought to mind an obvious antecedent. A cliched, some might say quasi racist one, but when Living Colour tore out of New York in the Eighties, even then everyone tried to recall a black rock act as commercial or convincing. In my mind, TVOTR would have been Motown’s rock act during its glory years.

Rodeo Austin: Thirteen Days Left
Cruel irony that on family day at Rodeo Austin – Sundays, when the rodeo portion runs a kid-friendly 3-5pm – that mine kept our precious toddler from claiming that yes, this was in fact his first time at the rodeo. Only family can be that freakin’ inconsiderate.

True Believers? Painted Redstarts!
When Margaret Moser presented me with a preteen to write about Austin’s U18 scene in 2009, only him being local guitar great Jon Dee Graham’s son kept me from dismissing the idea. William Harries Graham then became one of our most prolific bloggers. Five years later, his band Painted Redstarts sold me with one of the best local walk-offs I’ve ever witnessed.

Fleetwood Mac Bewitches the Frank Erwin Center
If ever an arena rock band made a convincing case for its own unplugged club tour, it was Fleetwood Mac Sunday night at the Frank Erwin Center. At the hour mark of an epic, 160-minute, 23-song show, a stripped down mini set cushioned the stillness and enduring beauty of songs known to all. Rockers age – musicians, compositions – but intimacy never grows old.

For Friday the 13th... Alice Cooper
And in the end (as the song goes... ) – with balloons, streamers, and confetti filling the Moody Theater – the ringmaster leading 100 minutes of ghoulish Barnum & Bailey spectacle, Alice Cooper, recalled no less that Sir Paul McCartney at the Erwin Center in 2013. That Detroit-born Vincent Damon Furnier, 67, likely identifies as a Lennonite matters not.
