SXSW Live Shot: The Skull
Eric Wagner and Ron Holzner are veterans of the rock wars: greying, grizzled, bloodied but unbowed. Former members of seminal Chicago metal act Trouble, the pair keep the fire burning in the Skull, a group formed specifically to stoke those ancient embers.

SXSW Live Shot: The Residents
Paired with a screening of the Residents documentary Theory of Obscurity for SXSW Film, Friday’s show gave the band’s diehards and the curious among South By Southwest attendees more than their fill of the mask-wearing, art-damaged rock legacy.

SXSW Film Review: Best of Enemies
Hard to imagine that time, pre-Fox News and Bill O’Reilly, when facts mattered, on-camera civility reigned, and Dan Ackroyd’s Jane-you-miserable-slut comment was so funny just because it was so unimaginably outré.

SXSW Film Review: Danny Says
There’s no precise word in the music biz for what Danny Fields does – or did (as the film concludes its look at his amazing career in 1978). Having great taste is a huge part of what made Fields so successful, but pinpointing his activities with a simple job description is no easy task.

SXSW Film Review: We Like It Like That
How to start a musical movement: Take the music your parents like, combine it with the music they don't, add a healthy dose of counter culture, and play it to a dance floor. It helps to choose a catchy name, like, say, the boogaloo.

SXSW Film Review: Monte Adentro
Two brothers – city mouse, country mouse – work long hours with low pay and even less complaint. Their mother, the matriarch of a muleteer family, narrates this family portrait turned observation on hard work and changing times.
