SXSW Music Live: Richard Barone Presents Greenwich Village in the Sixties
Musicians have documented their place of origin since minstrelsy was invented. Florida native Richard Barone moved to the Big Apple in time for punk and New Wave, and eventually settled into Greenwich Village in the lower part of New York City. In the Sixties, it became ground zero of the folk explosion.

SXSW Panel: Do Music Journalists Matter Anymore?
After too many decades to count, I’m retiring from writing at the end of this month, so this topic seemed personally timely. In the end, the panel – moderator Jason Gross from Perfect Sound Forever along with Rachel Brodsky of Paste, Greg Kot of The Chicago Tribune, and current Austinite Chuck Eddy, ex-Village Voice – never answered its own question.

SXSW Music Live: Pegi Young
On her new album Raw, Pegi Young runs through all the stages of grief she’s faced following the breakup of her 36-year marriage to Ol’ Shakey, Neil Young. Breakup albums are nothing new, but this one gets to the heart of the matter in a way that’s unusually direct and dripping with venom.

SXSW Music Live: David Vincent
A certifiable legend in the extreme metal universe, North Carolina native David Vincent fronted and played bass for Morbid Angel on and off for the better part of the last three decades until 2015. His new local project offers something else altogether.

10 Minutes With Joe Ely
Joe Ely marks his 70th birthday Friday night at the Paramount Theatre. Often compared to both Bruce Springsteen and onetime tour mate Joe Strummer for his dynamic stage presence and songs that speak to the heart of his home state, the locally sourced Lubbock native will be joined onstage by a host of friends. They plan to cover all eras of his storied career.

Colvin & Earle Stand and Deliver
Last stop of a tour lasting several months, Austin’s Paramount Theatre hosted Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle on Sunday night, no weariness apparent in either local favorite. Better still, those expecting a sit-down, front porch kind of song swap between two of the most beloved singer-songwriters of their generation were in for a surprise.

10 Minutes with Robbie Fulks
Twenty years after his debut, Robbie Fulks’ two most recent albums, 2013’s Gone Away Backward and the new Upland Stories, find him at a career peak. As such, consider the longtime Chicago dweller among the top country/folk singer-songwriters of our day. He appears Sunday at Strange Brew.

Paul Simon Makes History
Austin City Limits checked off another American music treasure from its bucket list Thursday night. Paul Simon mostly repeated Tuesday’s set list from the first of two Bass Concert Hall shows – only three songs from the upcoming Stranger to Stranger – but no one at a full Moody Theater was complaining. How many times does one get to witness history, anyway?

A Posies Pop-Up Show
Pacific Northwest duo Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer have performed together as the Posies for nearly 30 years. In that time they’ve become masters of power pop, producing guitar jangle, sugary melodies, and impeccable harmonies. Their current tour picks venues where music isn’t normally on the menu and performances aren’t unannounced until day of show.
