Music Column  February 16, 2001, by Ken Lieck
"...While David Thomson thought that he had a complete set of showcase venues for SXSW, with Maggie Mae's being the latest addition, suddenly the Longhorn Lodge on Sixth Street shut its doors and disconnected its phone. Luckily, Randall Stockton says his Beerland will be a "go" this year, as the former Bates Motel manager has his permits and is finishing up construction on the small punk venue next to the Atomic Cafe in time for the music festival..."

Live Shots
Music Story  February 25, 1999
"...Have you heard of him?" "Yeeeaaahhh!!!!!" Old movie footage of a scantily clad flapper flapping about the Cotton Club while the Ellington Orchestra churns out the "Cotton Club Stomp" elicits several knowing choruses of "Woooo" from the children when the scene gets too risqué. Byron and his band then play the light-hearted "The Dicty Glide," which later ended the real reason this septet was in Austin: a Saturday night performance at UT's elegant Bates Recital Hall, a predictably more adult (and sometimes staid) affair..."

Welcome to Sixth Street
Music Story  October 11, 1996, by Andy Langer
"...Of the nearly 40 nighttime businesses that line Sixth Street between Brazos and Red River, there are 14 bars, another half dozen that feature some live music (i.e. Maggie Mae's, Fat Tuesdays), and six dance clubs (not including Fifth Street's Paradox and Seventh's Buffalo Club.) And although there's a handful of venues like Joe's Generic Bar and Bates Motel that regularly feature original live music, perhaps only Steamboat, Flamingo Cantina, the Black Cat, Headliners East, Babes, and the White Rabbit are regarded as regular hosts to both developing local acts and big name hometown talent -- as well as the occasional roadshow..."
