New mAcdonald

Maybe the road to PurgAtory Hill has been long, but few are better equipped to make the trip than Pat Macdonald. Make that pat mAcdonald, an effective way of driving grammarists crazy or maybe just a reminder to put the damn A in his last name without mentioning “The Future’s So Bright.” Read More | Comment »

Belle de Jour

Yanking a diva out of the studio to do a 10-minute phoner with some yokel down in Texas doesn't inspire much hope on the latter's end, so you better engage one of pop music's singular personalities, Rufus Wainwright, who plays the Paramount Monday and Tuesday, from the word "hello." Correction, from the word "bonjour." Read More | Comment »

Video: White Denim “I Start to Run”

Directed by Austin’s Andy Cope and filmed just last month at the Austin City Limits studio, White Denim’s new video for Fits’ lead single “I Start to Run” is already making the rounds on MTVu. For a bit of the back story, check this out. If you look closely, you can spot OTR doing his best impression of a fly on a wall. Read More | Comment »

Dust In the Air

I’ve referred to Son Volt as the premier American roots-rock band of our day and in my mind, its latest, American Central Dust (Rounder), confirms that notion. Read More | Comment »

Tejano Returns to 6th Street

Isidoro Lopez likes to use the phrase “invisible society” when referring to the Latino community and how it's often looked through. It’s a particularly apt phrase in regards to Tejano, that vibrant hybrid of Texas-born, Mexican-originated music. For every musical style that exists, there’s a Spanish take on it.

Dig Until You Hit the Floor

Unlike South by Southwest and Austin City Limits, at Fun Fun Fun Fest it's easy to not have a plan and sort of wander from stage to stage. However, it also helps to have a pioneer-woman strategy, like some other folks we know. Some highlights (and lowlights)... Read More | Comment »

Microphone Fiend

A stage filled by an MC and his DJ is a rare sight in hip-hop these days, but Rakim’s schooling at Emo’s Wednesday night was never about the here and now. With The Seventh Seal not out for another two weeks and no new material since 1999’s The Master, there wasn’t much use in hitting anything but the classics. Read More | Comment »

Bad Boy Boogie

AC/DC’s “War Machine” incinerated San Antonio’s AT&T Center last December, and tonight the Frank Erwin Center’s sprinkler system tests its mettle against the Aussie rock & roll tank. Thirty years ago, Paris, France, preserved Bon Scott for Austin, Texas. Read More | Comment »

Bavu Blakes may be heading to California in a few weeks, but the situation’s more a “See ya later” than a goodbye. Read More | Comment »

Hitting the Half-Pipe

I’ve never been one for extreme sports so I’ve never had reason to go to a skate park. Yet while extreme sports have never been my style, rock & roll always has, so when Versatile Skate Park on South Lamar began booking shows, I paid them a visit. Read More | Comment »

You Must Never Break the Chain

Erika Wennerstrom’s blistering blues made Dhani Harrison crouch down for a better look upstairs on the Stubb’s VIP deck, while Wolfmother, Friday night’s Aussie Afro and headliner, watched from the wings. Too bad the Heartless Bastards’ volcanic voice and Les Paul wringer wasn't at the Continental Club later to grin at Down Under’s the Grates. Read More | Comment »

Heart Gently Weeps

Dhani Harrison didn’t just help create The Beatles: Rock Band. He lived it. Having laid to rest the sessions for his father George’s posthumously released final album, 2002's Brainwashed, Harrison hits his stride with Thenewno2, which opens for Wolfmother tonight at Stubb’s. Read More | Comment »

Sunny Side of the Street

There are two schools of thought about a Pogues show. The first is that any Pogues show is great, and the second is that any Pogues show is great, even if they are doing it by the numbers. Face it, at 25-plus years, this is a nostalgia act, just like Devo or the B-52's. Read More | Comment »
