"...Vaughan even did a stint as "Freddie King Jr.," playing the Texas guitar hero's hits on the chitlin circuit for an audience surprised to see a white boy "playing like Freddie King but unable to sing any of the songs." In his later teens, he joined Texas Storm in Dallas, which became the Storm in Austin. When Storm split, Vaughan re-emerged in 1975 with the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Antone's was born, and the promise of the blues was wild and free...."
"...Stout's seat-of-the-pants approach began to pay off, and Pee Wee Records eventually saw 15 or so releases, all with European licensing and distribution. Pee Wee was eventually shelved, though, when he got a job working marketing and distribution plans for Amazing Records, later to become Antone's Records..."

"...DB: When my dad wasn't playing at the Armadillo or Antone's, it was a family thing for all of us to go see other bands like Fats Domino, Jimmie Vaughan, Freddie King, or whoever was in town. Someone would always hire someone locally to back them up..."
"...Harry was close friends with Jamal Antone, who headed the Lebanese Federation from his Port Arthur import business. When Jamal's son Clifford needed help relocating his blues club from Sixth Street where the building was to be torn down – and after a brief foray in North Austin – Harry went across the street and convinced the owner at 2915 Guadalupe Street to rent to Antone's...."
"...The two are settled into chairs in the back room of Antone's Record Shop on Guadalupe, where stacked crates of old and new vinyl and vintage posters unseen from the front of the store tell their own stories of rock & roll and the blues. Mojo and magic live in these walls, where Clifford Antone once brought R.L..."
"...Antone's abandons its old Shakey's Pizza locale on the drag and scrambles to set up shop in the bar formerly known as Jellyrolls (insert own dueling piano bar joke here). The reason for the haste? Something called South by Southwest, the annual five-day soiree where people from New York and L.A..."
"...When Joe Rockhead ceased, the Ugly Americans sprang up in its place like a Hydra's head. The college crowd from Rockhead followed Schneider's new band to Antone's Guadalupe Street location..."
"...And when he bought the place in 1958, he called me and said, 'I got part of your band, and they want to make you the bandleader.' Charlie and his wife wanted it to be a business and wanted a name for the band. So I said, 'Why not the Jets? I'm a jet mechanic at Bergstrom.' And that's how it came about."Dance to the Music Pay attention when Allen "Sugar Bear" Black emcees at Antone's..."

"..."These posters sold a lifestyle that permeated the city and reflected Austin's transformation from a sleepy university town into a veritable island of underground artistic and cultural activity in the state of Texas," writes Alan Schaefer in the introduction to this collection of poster art spanning the city's seminal music boom. Although Sixties San Francisco played ground zero for the show poster revolution – highly influenced by local expat Chet Helms' Family Dog collective – Austin quickly spawned its own style and identity as much through visual art as the music from venues like the Vulcan Gas Company, Armadillo World Headquarters, and Antone's..."
"...The Skunks didn't get to do their annual show because the nasty streak of bad luck dogging Jon Dee Graham wasn't over but the rest of the hometown shows were stellar. Honeyboy Edwards canceled his Antone's appearance with Pinetop Perkins, who kept the date..."

"...The Mexico City 10-piece takes root in Latin ska, as evidenced by “La Dosis Perfecta” and the raucous “La Carencia,” but punk, salsa, mariachi, and reggae crackle throughout an expansive catalog. Take your pick: the blazing big brass on A la Izquierda de la Tierra (1999), political brashness of Compañeros Musicales (2002), or the eclectic Ni Carne Ni Pescado (2012).– Alejandra Ramirez Antone's 43rd Anniversary..."

Save Liberty Lunch and niche venues likes Antone's and the Cactus Cafe, they pretty much ran the town...."
"...Wolfson Lou Ann Barton, 45, has been more active performance-wise than recording-wise the last few years, which is too bad; she's got stage presence to burn and her only three studio recordings reveal timeless songs. The Fort Worth native who fronted Stevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble prototype, Triple Threat Revue, delivers ever-more incendiary shows these days and offered her views backstage at Antone's and by phone...."
"...Equally hard to evaluate is the matter of how far the local concert dollar can stretch. Live music fans will no doubt embrace the notion of more shows and more choice, but how many can they possibly afford it? And even if all three midsize venues thrive on roadshows, what's left over for the Tuesday night $5 Hole in the Wall show featuring three local bands? And what about the smaller roadshows that routinely stop at the Electric Lounge, Antone's, Emo's, the Continental Club, and the Back Room? Will there still be as much interest in those shows, and even if there is, will the midsize venues begin pursuing those shows just to fill their calendars and keep their rooms active between bigger shows?..."
