Lee Gamble’s Pan Arc
Lee Gamble’s deconstructionist detour on Pan manifests an intrepid appetite to crinkle his own arc. The Brummie turned Londoner’s cynosure traces the fault line between computer composition and the jungle miasma of the mid-Nineties rave scene. Colliding such polarized realms generates an interpolating space of eddying force.

Tell Me in Toronto Premiere
In Austin, you can step into a club for $3 and walk right up to the stage, watch a budding songwriter up close as they lay it down for a tiny room. What you don’t see is the preparation. Three seconds of spontaneity may have taken months to perfect. That’s the insight of Tell Me in Toronto, the 30-minute pilot for a short film series by Chris Brecht.

Gary Clark Jr. on Antone’s
“I’ve been running around playing all these shows, but it’s good to be back in Austin. It’s good to be talking about Antone’s and trying to keep this alive. Not just the place, but the music and the vibe and the scene and the culture. So thanks for listening to me blab.” That’s how Gary Clark Jr. signed off from our midnight phone call last week.

10 Minutes with the Alvin Brothers
In 2012, while touring with the Blasters in Spain, Phil Alvin died and was brought back to life. Dave Alvin co-fronted said L.A. roots-rock powerhouse with his brother until 1986 when he quit, their relationship having always been on the rocky side. That near-death incident led them to finally bury the hatchet.

College Tuition or Michael Bublé?
Wrapping his velvety voice around 9,000 fans at the Frank Erwin Center Sunday, Michael Bublé made good on the promise of a night filled with romance. Sliding downstage at 8:30pm, the Canadian crooner kicked off a two-hour production with pyrotechnics. All manner of females shivered in his wake.

White Denim Television
“One of our own,” nodded Terry Lickona Monday night during his introduction to White Denim. “About time they set foot on our stage.” Taping season 40 of Austin City Limits, the local fourpiece actually set eight feet onstage, which then proceeded to tap, tip-toe, and pogo over a 75-minute set. Drummer Josh Block nearly beat a hole in his bass drum.

The Unabridged Billy Joe Shaver
When I rang Billy Joe Shaver two weeks ago about his new album Long in the Tooth, which arrives today along with a 5pm in-store performance at Waterloo Records, the 74-year-old country music legend was running late for a gig at John T Floore’s Country Store in Bandera and said he’d have to call me back from “the truck.”
