The North Door
"..."In the public eye, Red River is dead and gone," acknowledges Jared Cannon, one of three owners at Red 7...."
"...Jared Cannon, the celebrated Grumpy Fuck and drummer for Bitter Tongues and Career Criminal, is at the helm of it all. A towering, godfatherlike punk who oversees every aspect of the Red 7's operation, Cannon got his start in the music industry at Aaron Turner's Hydra Head Records in Massachusetts (see "Earache!: The Many Heads of Aaron Turner," posted February 26, 2007) before relocating to Austin in 2002 and establishing himself at the now-defunct Ritz..."
"...Stop me if you've heard this one: Three hardcore guys walk into a gym .... "I've heard it," laughs Red 7 General Manager Jared Cannon..."
"...A small room with big ambitions, Holy Mountain opened on New Year's Eve 2012 in the revamped shell of erstwhile hipster chain Beauty Bar. Under the ownership of Taylor and Jared Cannon, Bart Butler, Niraj Mehdiratta, Ryan Cano, and Aaron Berkowitz, the 200-capacity club made all the right moves to remain relevant: nurturing homegrown acts, hosting rising (inter)nationals (like Kate Tempest's recent sellout), and participating in festivals including South by Southwest, Chaos in Tejas, Fun Fun Fun, and Weird City Hip-Hop..."
"...“Playback” has since learned that negotiations are finalized. Reached for comment this morning, Red 7 owner Jared Cannon confirmed both the closure of his club and birth of Sidewinder, likely opening in early October...."
"...Holy Mountain partner James Taylor characterized the increase as "completely unsustainable." Holy Mountain/Red 7 partner Jared Cannon simply says "impossible." Upon viewing the price-per-square-foot rates of the listings, one real estate executive with experience in Downtown retail leases confirmed, "That price is definitely on the high end. What we're seeing happening is someone from out of town will come in and pay an extraordinary rate for a property in a certain neighborhood, then it sets a high benchmark."..."
"...Last weekend, members of local TKO bands Complete Control and Krum Bums and Red 7 manager Jared Cannon were held in contempt of Christina's Court. The punks traveled to Houston to tape a segment for the Fox daytime TV series, attempting to resolve a "dispute" over an unfulfilled contract guarantee and subsequent riot at the bands' show..."
"..."Before tonight I didn't know how much we'd use the front room," acknowledged co-owner Jared Cannon. "But after seeing this, I think we'll use it a lot..."
"...Sony, unveiling its new portable PlayStation device on 2.22.12, PlayStation®Vita, has essentially become the club's “sponsor” through the end of SXSW, confirmed Red 7 owner Jared Cannon last night near his inside bar. The club's front room, wiped clean of pool tables and booths, becomes the Vita Lounge beginning January 16, hosting promotional acclimation to its hand-held gaming console, while the outdoor stage – its walls also scrubbed – conducts business as usual...."
"...Jared Cannon, Red 7 owner: "Trash Talk with Iron Age in December 2012; every time These Arms Are Snakes or The Bronx played; the At the Drive-In reunion show was insane; Torche was always great and so were Mammoth Grinder and Power Trip. And whenever Captured! by Robots played, I got to talk about Star Trek: The Next Generation with JBOT for hours."..."
"...For Swindell and Red 7 partner Jared Cannon, who’ll be management at Sidewinder, the hurried transition between venues means they’ll be busting ass for the next two weeks...."
"..."That shit used to fly off the shelves," affirms Jared Cannon of Red 7, home to many metal and hardcore shows over the years. "All the hardcore kids who were new-ish to drinking would drink it quite a bit."..."
"...› Holy Mountain opens this weekend in the old Beauty Bar building on Seventh Street. "We want to offer a space that's just as fun to hang out at when there's only a soccer game on the TV as there is when a live band's playing," says partner Jared Cannon of Red 7..."
"...That's the name of the soon-to-be-open bar and music venue. I asked one of Holy Mountain's owners, Red 7's Jared Cannon, to explain the name: "It's a pretty ridiculous story but here goes..."
"...Red 7 general manager Jared Cannon succinctly summed up the havoc wreaked last weekend by Chaos in Tejas: "Four-day festival, two-week hangover." Orchestrated by local booker/promoter Timmy Hefner, the annual punk bazaar was like South by Southwest for crust punks and DIY enthusiasts, a pilgrimage and marathon that stretched around the clock and well past the confines of Red River. The carnage officially started late last Wednesday at Emo's with Pentagram's metalocalypse, led by original guitarist Victor Griffin for the first time in 20 years..."
"...Returning to the sold-out Frank Erwin Center on Friday for its first local stopover since 1996's Ballbreaker tour, the Aussie locomotive brought two hours' worth of backseat rhythm and maximum rock & roll all the way to OTR's last row seats of the upper deck. From the iron toll of "Hells Bells" and Brian Johnson's gigolo strut for "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" through the cannonade of encore finale "For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)," guitarists Malcolm and Angus Young carried their troops with firecracker intensity, leaving no essential touchstone unturned...."
"...• The new punk dive from Red 7's Jared Cannon, the Brixton (1412 E. Sixth), should be the unofficial afterhours hot spot this weekend...."
"...Birthday boy Williams stood nearby and acknowledged my marveling at his veteran music scene status at such a relatively young age, the local native having begun at Emo’s when he was 19 and learned his trade there 1997-2007 before assembling Transmission. Cabinet member and Red 7 czar Jared Cannon clapped him on the back while declaring himself a communist..."
"...The ink has finally dried on Transmission Entertainment's acquisition of Red 7 (see "DIY or Die," June 22, 2007). The entertainment enterprise is now a co-owner of the hardcore haven along with club manager Jared Cannon..."
"...The house band for Austin hardcore haven Red 7, Career Criminal is grounded by manager Jared Cannon and a few veteran cronies, dropped somewhere between the Jam and Agnostic Front. It's poetic justice played fast and loud..."
