On Tuesday night, a procession of cars and pedestrians cruised by the curb of a corner house in north Austin – beeping horns, waving, and yelling farewells. A honk parade for a Honky: Jeff Pinkus and his wife, tattoo artist Camille Muskrat, made off in a U-Haul the following day.

Checking In: Scott H. Biram Can’t Sleep
Another century’s groundbreakers – Grey Ghost, Hosea Hargrove, Pinetop Perkins – spring to mind when considering Scott H. Biram’s place in the pantheon of ATX bluesmen. Ancient and raw, the Texan revelator distills Doc Watson, Lead Belly, George Jones, Slayer, and perhaps even C.W. McCall into a sour mash as potent as punk and as blinding as bluegrass.

Checking In: Come Sunday With Jazz Siren Pamela Hart
If musicians never get a second chance to make a first impression, then some of us haven’t forgotten one particular local jazz singer channeling Lady Day. “Pamela Hart evok[es] Billie Holiday with her pure, sweet vulnerability,” wrote a Chronicle reviewer in 1996, and indeed, she became a first-call Austinite for shows by Nancy Wilson and Dianne Reeves.

Checking In: Eliza Gilkyson Predicts a Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall
Opener “Promises to Keep” could have posted to Bandcamp yesterday: “I’ve been hoping they’ll be some way through/ And all our loved ones will be fine/ No one knows what it’ll come down to/ So I’m just looking for a sign.” And yet, Eliza Gilkyson finished 2020 long before Earth ground to a halt. Righteous but reassuring, imagine the Staple Singers covering it.

Checking In: A. Sinclair (& Family) Rises Into the Eye of the Tiger
“Risin’ up, back on the street/ Did my time, took my chances/ Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet/ Just a man and his will to survive.” A. Sinclair’s recent In the Middle of the Night sounds nothing like Survivor’s 1982 Rocky III theme, but the local Nine Mile Records EP peaks sugary, survivalist post-punk in lit family paean “A Hundred Million Thousand.”

Checking In: Blackillac Begins Recording Its Debut
Guns N’ Roses, Lizzo, Rosalía, Childish Gambino, Billie Eilish, the Cure: How to top ACL Fest 2019? Austin’s Blackillac, of course. Phranchyze and Zeale spit roast their second-weekend-only 11:45am Saturday slot as if Zilker Park closed at noon – dynamic, urgent, valedictorian. No wonder Gary Clark Jr. shares his beats with the ATX rappers.
